1996 Land Rover Range Rover Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1996 Land Rover Range Rover based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
An oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal. Our technicians tell us a revised seal is available which should correct this concern.
A rough or unstable idle may be noted due to an intake manifold vacuum leak. Our technicians tell us a revised intake manifold gasket, along with manifold bolt flat washers which will better distribute the clamping force are available to correct this concern.
An oil leak may develop from the oil pan area. This may be caused by improper sealing of the oil pan "through" bolts. Our technicians tell use that revised "patch" bolts and sealing procedures are available to correct these leaks.
Oil leaks from the valve cover gaskets are not uncommon. Our technicians tell us that if one valve cover seal is found leaking both valve covers should be resealed to try and avoid future issues.
In severe wet conditions, water may enter the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator electrical connector resulting in corrosion and illumination of the ABS warning light. Our technicians tell us revised modulator ground leads are available to better seal the connector. If corrosion is found in the electrical connector the connector will need to be repaired as necessary and the new ground leads installed.
