Howdy Folks Welcome back. If this is your first time here, just welcome. I'm glad you're here. First and foremost.

I'd like to apologize about the confusion to everybody, especially those of you who have just tuned in. This little mini series is about a 2010. Land Rover Range Rover Sport I Found during the Diag process that I was able to do some of the work, but some of the work I was not capable of doing and I have to send it away for that. The confusing part is that for some of you, you came over here from the shorter diagnostic video and this video was previously unlisted.

Now that it has been posted, you may have been returned through notifications or other YouTube features. So if you've already been here and already seen this video, I Apologize. That being said, we're going to go ahead and get straight to it. back to the Five liter.

Supercharged V8 We're gonna go ahead and pull the spark plugs opening. Z Hood Yeah, All right, it's the next work week. Let's go fetch the Range Rover get her back into the shop I Don't think I'm gonna do anything stockings the engine uh with the uh, the auto ride system. I'm just not uh.

I'm not equipped to to operate such things and I also do not have the training and foundational knowledge to troubleshoot that system. we're going to. uh, we're going to work on that misfire. We're gonna do that spare tire thing and there's a few other knick-knacky items I'll see if I can't squeeze them in in this video.

So I'm gonna go ahead back this thing into the big Corner Rack beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep It's beeping at me because I'm backing up. Sensors are all linking up in the car. I Think we're good here. A little bit farther forward.

there we go. just in case I need to lift it up. Parking: Seattle hey hey hey, powering down didn't listen. All right, let us pop Innings and uh, get started here.

Range Rover it Rose The range. where's my hood release lever I lost it. So this fancy Euro levers there we go. supercharged Okie Dokes well I Guess the best place to start is the beginning and most beginnings of engine repairs are going to start with the uh air filter uh, intake tubing.

So let's get this stuff disconnected and unplugged and we can start peeling back some of these covers. We've got to get to this. Uh, there's a cover like a foam molded insert type of thing that goes over the cylinder head on this side, one more on the other side. Let's get those things removed and that should give us some access to our coils so we can pull those guys out.

and then we'll uh, begin extracting our sparking plugs. This guy I'm screwed right here. One more. There's like six, uh, six screws in this box here.

Let's get that guy out. Mass airflow, disconnect while I'm here. Negative: One more screw. It's not out all the way.

Yeah, there's another air filter over on the other side. This vehicle is equipped with two. That's how you know. it's good.
Ovular clamp. All right. Air filter. Look at that.

Brand new, all right. Let's move in a little closer here. This is our little molded foam type of deal thing I was talking about. Let's get our oil cap removed, hold this guy back, and there are our coils.

Or on this side or on that side. we're gonna need to go in there with, uh, some torx bits. Pull those guys out and then we can extract the plugs. Okay, I've got the power steering reservoir detached from the air box.

Pull that guy out there. we go down over there with you. I'll probably have to do the same thing on this side. so let's see what hundred thousand mile supercharged spark plugs are gonna look like.

Thank you. Come disconnected. There we go. Pull this thing out to see what we've got to work with.

Come on. Coil become removed. Come out. Oh, it's stuck.

There we go. Oh, looks good spark plugs way down there. Yeah. I Get to use my super duper extra long spark plug socket.

it's actually not for Land Rovers but it'll fit. What do we get through? and Gks? Yeah, not terrible. I See the uh anode is a little worn away. Okie Dokes.

Oh, now it's time for the blowback. We didn't use Ngk's That's right. I Bought some Denzos got some Denzos Genzos will fit. Benzos will work.

These will suffice. Very good. It looked the same, smell the same. It must be the same.

Let's go ahead and get this installed and we'll move on. And uh, get the remaining seven. Put that guy down in its home there. Starter By hand we'll run it down with with the tool gently still to stop and we'll apply toward for the torque wrench.

All right, let's get an actual click in and then we'll go ahead and get serious and get the rest of these things done. That's the Crush Washer crushing. There we go. torque and Sheet Here you know what? Let's move you guys over here to a better line of sight.

and then I'm going to go ahead and pick up the pace here. We're gonna get serious. Get this job done with some haste. I'm gonna go ahead systematically pull off all the uh, all the connectors.

We'll pop these guys out. We'll pull all the coils. oh that's a that's a hard hard to reach spot back there. Nice.

It's coming apart easily. that's cool and it didn't break all the pieces off like a like a Nissan Oh no I don't fit. Look at that. I Have to do this manually.

Okie doke. So here we go. Got a little Torx 30 right here. That's actually a tamper-proof torque.

See the hole in the middle of it on a little ratchet driver. So I'm gonna have to get these, uh, these coil bolts out by hand I can't uh, can't fit a tool in there which kind of slows down the process ever so slightly. but we have a corrosion free engine compartment as well so that should, uh, it should make this a less annoying and a little bit more. uh, smooth.

I Appreciate the non-rusted cars there. We go every week is a new challenge around here and the learning curve is incredibly steep. I Don't know. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if I had like like a full staff and three lifts and two garage doors.
A couple employees, but I'm afraid to go down that road because that means I'm responsible for somebody else's livelihood I don't even know how I managed my own half the time I Just do do without thinking. Come on, Last bolt, don't make me take this AC line off to get this out. That's that'll upset me. No.

I don't have the finger strength to turn it. Come on. Everything I just said was just invalidated by this last coil bolt. Look at that.

Well, not everything my gripes about work remain, but the ease of operation. That's uh, that's changing here. Come on. Last little bolt.

Yeah. I can't turn that one by hand. Maybe it's rusted? Oh, there's rust on it. work.

Declined Send a tow truck actually I Did a client work I Declined: the suspension work. Come on. No, it still won't come out. Um I have to put an impact gun on it.

Come on. almost there. I Can feel it starting to free up Some these threads are a little crusty on this one. See it? No, you don't see it because I'm a big orange hand is in the way.

Ah, my fingers are cramped and stuck. Come on. push through the pain. There we go.

Got it? That's the. That's the last coil on this side. See that sneaks out through the bottom there? That's cool. Sweet.

Got it here. Let's see if I can dig these guys out with a wobbly spark plug socket that's too deep. Okay, let's try that. try a different approach.

I Have an idea. Need more extension so I can get the tool up here in an area where I can work at it with another tool. There we go. let's try that come out.

this is gonna work. No one's a little worn out. it's two plugs removed. plug number three yeah, that's not so bad and I lost four because I can't see in the hole.

it's too deep. uh I know it's down there I got it come out all right? Okay, got three more unboxed. Let's go ahead and get them started. We'll start them up by hand and then we'll go down the line with the torque wrench and give them some clicks after we run them down.

There we go. That's on the bottom. Two plugs. done.

number three plug coming in, detached from the tool. Again, starting it by hand. Don't want to cross thread a supercharged uh Land Rover head do we screw that guy in? Give it some forward action here. This is why those uh universals are great.

You can get in the hard to reach places. click. That was a free click. Remember these aren't torque.

They're just, uh, run down till they stopped. They're not tight. Oh I didn't put a plug in that one yet. That's silly, right? What are you doing? I'm like, why won't it thread? I see here: foreign something actually I've ordered this uh throughout my lifetime.
Why is it that the names of each month does not actually reflect the numerical value of the month? Uh, for example, October is the 10th month, but Ott is the prefix for eight. Uh, September for seven deca, December for 10. Yet all of those months are like two months ahead of schedule because October is the 10th month. But uh, if it's called OCT October shouldn't that be the eighth month? Why has that happened? I'll tell you why that's happened.

it's because of the bloody Romans Then the Romans got all egotistical on us. They wanted to name two months after their Emperors. they named months after Julius Caesar and Augustus is Seven Eight Nine ten Because they are called Seven Eight Nine Ten That's what they are. Which means where is the 13th month? A little bit of food for thought.

And you know while we're on this conceptual Rabbit Hole Why is it that the New Year the calendar New Year starts in January when the physical New Year for species technically starts around April or May Like shouldn't April 1st be the first of the year? Because you know that's when when chickens are hatching and when you sell your crops. and when babies are born. For the most part, animals come out of hibernation. So shouldn't they do that in the beginning of the year instead of having the beginning of our year start in January which is the dead of winter.

Okay, I know that's a pretty abstract contract concept words and it goes against like everything we were taught in school and in life. But doesn't it just make sense? especially the numerical values of each month. I I Don't think that those make sense at all because October should be the eighth month and not the 10th. I'm convinced system is wrong or I need to get a bigger tinfoil hat.

Hmm, that was torque wrench slippage. Come on. become tight. become tight.

There we go. Clicks. Okay, that's four plugs installed and torqued I forgot if I torque this one or not. So I'm just gonna do it again.

And the survey says I must not have because it's turning. There it goes. I was distracted and I walked away and then I forgot where I left off and to go back and recheck fix Ed Okay, I'm about to get the coils replaced but before doing such things I need to replace the coil boots I See no reason to do all this work and leave these hundred thousand Mile boots here. So we're just going to change these guys out right now.

Uh, tape. Come on tape. I Just made this hard on myself. It's fine there.

you lose tape. That's what we do. Separate this from the coil and do that without breaking it. Get behind it a little bit here.

there's some, uh, surface adhesion with some friction going on. Let's get behind that guy. Come out there we go. The spring stayed inside.

You can't see. spring stays inside. That's what makes the electrical connection I Can't get it out. That's what makes the connection between the coil and the spark plug.
So what we're going to do is grab our new boat boot where it's drop our spring down in there and we'll slide that guy right back onto the coil. Good to go now that our coil has been rebooted. let's give it some dielectric right in the hole there and we can drop her down into the spark plug tube and get this guy bolted in. Oh this is the one I Had to do kind of backwards like hang on.

pardon my big noggin thank you I've got to fold this boot almost like 180 degrees. Good thing it's flexible. All right. That coil is in position, just need to get it pressed down over the plug.

Okay, got it. We'll run the bolt back in and the hard one on this side will be done. They're getting easier as we move forward I Like to do the harder side first and then move towards the easier stuff. It reduces, uh, physical and mental fatigue.

If you spend energy doing the easy stuff first, be less motivated to do the harder stuff. But if you spend your energy on the hard stuff first and it only gets easier. the motivation of this little, uh, psychological trick of mine. and believe me, I need plenty of psychologicals, don't we all? Let's get this guy tightened down.

Hey man, it's going in easier than it came out, which is good. Yeah, Oh, Spark Plug, There we go. It's getting tight and thick. Okay, that one's plugged in and secured.

Let's get the other three coils rebooted and then we can get those guys installed. Same procedure with the rest of these guys. We'll get behind them, a little screwdriver here, break that surface uh, adhesion and separate the coil in the boot. There we go.

That's two another. You could probably try to get a hold of that with flyer pliers and just twist it, but you run the risk of breaking the plastic on the coil, which is, uh, very costly. Twisting helps. Once you do the twist and you generate some motion, that means there's no longer contact.

On a very small, almost micro microbial level. there's no contact and uh, therefore, there's no contact. There's no or less friction and it helps. Uh, helps things slide off? Yes.

science. There we go. Let's get these other three unboxed here. and numero Trace Goodbye tape.

Drop That one in tape is stuck to my glove. Drop that one in. that's two, untaped and assembled number three. See how? I'm giving this a Twist Again that reduces some of the friction internally and will allow this to spread on all the way.

like pushing it. It's harder to do, but if you give it a Twist while you push, it goes right together. Pizza No problem. Get in there.

Very nice. Yeah, we can Lube these up a wee a little bit. a little squirt right here. Open there and we'll drop them down into their holes.

No particular order necessary, just whatever fits. Push her down. Go in, get in there. where's my screws? There's one again.
This should just get easier as we go along here. Uh. third screw, third screw, third screw I don't know where it is. Hmm, okay.

well that uh, that third screw took me a little while to find it was actually in my shirt pocket I Don't remember doing that, but uh, that's where I found it. Always check the pockets. you never know. I've had Things fall into my pocket and not known about it.

That was fun. Plug these guys in real quick. Connector clicks Good to go. Let's go ahead and run these little screws down and then we'll make them tight.

That one's hard to get to. Okay, so this one's the hardest one now. I'm gonna run that one down there. There we go.

Some good flangy articulation now. I can get the right angle for the dangle here and put some put some torque on that much better speed it up there. we go make them tight. Thanks.

Okay, that's two of them torqued. Thank you. Come on. Coil click, that's three and then this last one right there.

Good to go. Let's go ahead and get this little cover dropped back in. We don't want to forget about that. That would be unprofessional.

Always put your engine covers back and it's easier said than done but should be done regardless. Let's go cert. foot and mouth comes up Under and Over There we go. That's the way I like it there oil cap back in position.

Let's go on over to the other side. Okey-dokes One side is I need to tuck that uh, the shield in a little better. There you go. One side's done.

Let's go ahead and pull the intake and air box off this side over here. That's a lot of stuff in the way. Oh I hope I Don't have to take apart this battery tray to get get those other plugs out of there. We'll see.

Let's go ahead and get this apart real quick and see if I can get access to that back side. Maybe I have to go through the fender. Well I Really don't know. that's not gonna work either.

I'm using the wrong tools for the wrong purpose using the wrong tools I wouldn't do that. That's not something Ray would do wrong tools for the right job, wrong job for the right tools. Come here. Okay.

I've got six screws on this air box. We'll pull this filter out next way back. when I'm done pulling screws out, it's boring. Oakley Dokely last one.

let's hold this. Uh oh I lied second to last one. There's one more last one. the final last one.

Yeah, this cover here has to go. Come on out there we go look. a battery. Found it.

Oh there we go. Get that out of here. Brand new engine air filter element. There's two.

we'll pull that out. Pull this guy out. Let's see, we've got some evap hoses to disconnect here I think um yeah, let me just disconnect this one right now. Set this guy aside back here.

wiggle this little cover thing out. Maybe I can do these plugs without pulling this battery tray out. I Don't know I've done this job before. Pardon my big nog in here I'm trying to see what I can see which isn't much.
fine. I don't want to take that off. Why are we stuck with no space? Oh I disapproved. You can't like it.

There we go. Okay, there's our cover I might be able to get. uh, get these guys out. let's change our position here.

Let's go over here on this side. All right. I'm uh, supremely confident that I need to start pulling some of this stuff apart I've got to remove this uh, harness bracket right here so I can reach the bolts on the coils and there's no way I'm getting back there to that last spark plug. so I'm gonna have to hold at least this panel thing off right here.

So what we've got going on looks like there's a connector connected to it. Let's get that thing removed and then I'll see what I can do about getting this piece separated. I might have to pull the battery out too. You can see this thing's kind of clipped on pocket screwdriver.

to the rescue. All those clips there we go. Okay, that connector is now out of the way. Let's see what else holds this guy together.

Looks like there's just some clips sort of down here on the bottom. Foreign. I Think there's another one? Can't see it? I Think it's back here behind? Yeah, yeah, it's right over here. I see it now.

That guy up and this whole uh, this whole piece right here should come free. Unhook this fuel line or evap line, whatever that is. Sneak this thing out so you you've been here with your friends so we've got a little bit more space. not much.

I might be able to get in there and take care of that coil if not, I've got to pull the battery out and this battery tray and the fuse box. I Don't want to do that. Okay, let's get to work on this little wiring harness here. Held on to the valve cover with just a couple little clips.

Let me unclip these clips and we'll just pull the harness away from the cover. obviously. I'm not going to remove it because it's attached to everything else electrically, but I can pull it back to, uh, pop these coils out. Come here.

Um please. Oh, that back plug is gonna be a bear I Can tell you right now. 100 percent there we go. Okay, so this harness is as free as it's gonna get.

Let me get down and dirty with it and get our connectors unconnected. Glad this thing's clean. All right. Going in long range for this connector.

Pop this one loose. Come on connector. I Should have done this side first. this is the much harder side.

Okay, that's two connectors and here comes three connectors. That was easy. Four connectors. can't even see it.

Foreign ER can though. All right. Fourth, one's disconnected. Let's get in there.

and uh, get these. Torx bolts removed and then we'll sneak these coils out. Should have read the manual. Step one remove Supercharger.
Yeah, all right. Bolts actually look easy to get to I Just sneak behind that harness right there and pull them out front two coils. That'll be no problem. It's that one way out back.

that, uh. it's giving me some concern because it may not be possible to get that thing out without some massive disassembly. I'm gonna try it. I'm gonna sneak around, unclick that oh whoa, whoa.

losing it. Got it. And that last one? I can still get a tool on that one. Okay, we're 25 of the way to almost being halfway there.

Let's go ahead and sneak these coils out and get the one up front. First breaking protocol? come out, come out I said please I will pry bar you? Oh, come on. Okay, Fry driver. Seriously, the boot has it stuck in the tube.

There we go. Okay, we got one. Yeah, that back one is going to be a nightmare. Not looking forward to it.

Quick Thumbs Boot Number two got her. Uh uh. Third one. Now it's getting hard and sweaty and hot in here.

You guys see what I'm doing I can't kind of fold it. the boot is still in the spark plug hole. All right, it's out. Let's just kind of walk this thing over there.

okay Moment of Truth can I get it? can I not hey, sorry if there's wind noise over here I I Had to point the fan at me because uh, it's it's kind of really hot. um and I'm sweating. Let's try to get back here with my big phranges I don't even know if I can get a hold of that thing. Come on two hands I need to get two hands on it trying to get under it and behind it to give it some pulling up for us back towards us.

Come on there we go. There's our pop and the coil is out again. I had to bend the boot you know, sideways to get come out of the hole. We got it.

Okay, now let's pull the plugs out. So I don't often get to employ the use of this tool because it's very cumbersome and awkward and not really effective. But when you need it, you need it and that tool is going to be this double locking wobbly extension. It's for getting into those really hard to reach places.

So what I'll do is I'll throw my existing wobble socket onto it. So now I got a triple jointed wobbly extension. It's like a compound suicide extension. totally not gonna work.

I Mean it's It's not an effective tool, but for getting into these stupid hard to reach places like this, it can be a savior now. I Realize for this application. on this first spark plug, it's not really necessary. but the rear ones.

This thing might seriously come in handy. Show: Let's get these plugs pulled. See what they look like? Unfixed? Yeah, see. Totally ridiculous.

Look at that thing that is not how your power tools are supposed to operate. All right, Enough screwing around. Let's see about uh. Spark plug number two again.

This one I probably could have removed without this triple jointed Goofy wobbly socket extension thing. But you know what? I need to have some fun because I don't like this particular operation. so I'm gonna enjoy it. Second one, remove D Okay, now for the hard part.
we're gonna go under this uh, coolant line and snake our way back down into hole number three. Let's get our extension on it because we need to, uh, bring our tool like around the battery. This is going to be proof of concept for this tool. If I can get around to this one, I can probably get the other one out.

Let's break this guy loose. Unclick. Yeah, it's like turning a corner with your uh with your power tools. Number three is out.

The plug looks to be in similar condition as the other one. I Don't see a little uh, iridium or a platinum tip on the anode. It is worn away. Now for hole number four: the nearly impossible to get a hold of hole number four.

We're gonna go over the coolant line this time. over under, around and through. It's like tying your shoes except for the supercharger in the way. please.

Oh there we go. it's going in I Love it and it slips it and there we go thing. I Think my angle's wrong. It's too tight of an angle to go under that line.

All right there. Negative: it's binding angles are too steep. Let's try. let's get this way.

over. Here it comes. it's working nice. Did I Win I Win Got it.

Got it out. Wonderful! Alrighty old spark plug out of the tool. new spark plug going in. This is where we get real scary because we're inviting the opportunity for this thing to bind up and potentially damage our spark plug.

So I need to make sure all this is super straight during the install. Definitely got to make sure that the threads are threading properly. Feel like it? I'm giving the tool a little bit of a tug and I can feel the rubber hanging onto the spark plug which tells me that it is threading so we'll just run this down by hand. I'm not going to stick a power tool in that hole.

Not this time. It's too risky. You don't want to damage it. Okay, it's bottomed out.

Torque Wrench. Let's tighten this thing down. Then we'll move on to the next hardest or less hardest one. This, uh, that double wobble extension works really well inside of spark plug tubes because the tube will actually keep it in line.

If it was freestanding, it would flop all over the place and it wouldn't. It wouldn't be effective. Here's our click. Double click.

It turned okay. Spark Plug tool removal. Pull that guy out. Good to go.

Let's get uh, the next plug set up and started under the line. Back around in the hole. can't find the hole. Third hole is hard to find.

It's really hard to get in there. I'm off. I'm off center. Please go and I don't want to force it.

Yeah. I'm way off center. Hang on. I Feel with my finger first.

We'll probe it first and then go for Glory There there got it? Got it? Just running the threads down slowly. Nice. All right. We've reached the bottom of the threads on the plug.
Let's get some torque on it. Multiple clicks come out. Yeah, what an apparatus craziness. All right, Approaching a little bit of smooth sailing here.

There's our next one. plugs Down in the Hole Again, sorry for the wind noise. If that fan is getting caught by the microphone, it's It's brutally hot right now. approximately 91 degrees.

It's on the Fahrenheit scale. That's the American scale. There we go and torque wrench? There we go. Click action.

Complete one to go. All right. I Also, uh, recently had a delivery. We are going to replace that spare tire crank the one that was broken that's going to get replaced.

believe it or not, I actually found a replacement unit for that. Shocking! I Did not expect that but my parts guys came through I said hey, this is what I need, can you find it and I said yep I'll let you know and then they found it and then they shipped it and now I have it and now I can fix the car. Yay! Okay, let's torque on the last one. Got her all right.

Goodbye baby! Wobbly apparatus. Alrighty So in an effort to save us a little bit of viewing time, I've gone ahead and tossed the new boots in Springs on uh on the old coils. so let's go ahead and grease them up, get them down in their hole and bolt it down connected. and uh, insecured that one's easy.

Let's just get you out of the way right now. Goodbye here. This one's easy. Let's just get this one out of the way right now.

Goodbye Now! I'm feeling better I Know that's the opposite of how I normally would do this, but I don't care in my mind I'm almost done. even if the last part is really hard which it's gonna be sliding this coil all the way back to the rear most spark plug now I just need to finagle it down into that hole which is right here by my index figure. Then this guy around, get it down in position. please go in please Bend and do it.

Oh I can't see and it's so far away I can barely feel it I just kind of have to just Peck at it till I Feel It Go in I think I think that's it. Yeah, let's push it in some see if we can't find the bottom. uh oh, it's backwards. Hang on.

That's why it's not going. The connectors face the towards the rear that way, reach up and around here, pull it out, some rotate it, you know, while I've got my hand right here. I'm just going to go ahead and slip that connector on, snap that thing into place. It'll be easier now that I've got some working room.

Okay, that coils in felt it bottom out oil number three, slide that down past the cooling hose and then move it rearward and let me see if I can't find that hole right there. that's it. So we'll fold this little boot, bend it, slip it down, plug in the connector since it's up here and kind of in our face. Safety, click and all the way down, let's connect the next one that one's connected.
Okay, now we can back up some and uh, get those bolts that secure the coils to The Head installed. Very good. and there's one more connector. Click right there.

All right. So four coils are in their home. Let's get the bolts in. We pull the harness back, drop them down, pull the harness back up, thread them in.

there's one next. I can't I don't have room to fit my fingers I wasn't built to work on Range Rovers or Range Rovers weren't built to be worked on. Maybe that's what it is. red.

Get on in there now. Okay, that's two third ones coming in. It's a little farther back. It's a little off center.

There we go. So glad that fan is on me. It's still hot, but at least there's some airflow to dry up all the sweat. Come on.

go in there. there. We go there, we go there, we go. Good, good, good, Okay.

and then the really hard one Cross your fingers. she's she's way back there. You guys see it. not even I Can't even see it and it's a miracle this is even happening.

I Really thought I was gonna have to pull this battery tray out. All right. that one's threaded. No, it's not thought it was I Thought's wrong I Misjudged you.

Spark dug and it turned and it's off. Yeah, it's cute going back. Hang on here. The coil turned in, the little bolt fell all the way down.

It's still in the coil, but it's next to the threads. not, uh, not aligned with the threads some and the harness is now blocking it. This hurts my fingers. Oh come on.

Oh crap. Assembled myself into a Corner in which I cannot Escape I need to pull the bolt back out of the coil and try again. That's the only way. Okay trying again.

Round two: I'm losing. Did I get it? Is it going in? Yeah, Yeah. yeah. The threads have started.

Got it? Okay, let's tighten these guys down. Evil Ignition Coil. Yeah. getting easier now.

Yay! Last one right here all the way up front. Now we can take that harness and slip that back over these little tabs that secure it to the valve cover here. Easy peas. Oh no.

too far. There clicks, many clicks. All right, got him. That harness thing is connected.

Let's go ahead and back her up some. All right? I've got the little heat shield thing back into position. That was a bear. Yeah now I just need to slip this battery tray Shield piece back in.

We'll clip that in, clip that harness uh, back into its holder, then toss the air boxes back in into this segment of Maintenance will be complete. Stuff always come apart easier than it goes a bit together. Wow. A couple snap crackles and Pops that's in position.

Connectors connected. that's back in position. Wires are tucked away. Let's put this power cable back down that little slot where it lives and that Clips on with a little plastic clip down here.
That's all good. There we go Stay Wonderful. All right. I've got the air boxes back on.

Let's get. uh, let's get our little battery tray cover thing back in here. kind of goes under over and then Clips in that's good to go. Let's pull the tools out back to the cabin.

Let us go stocking the engine, see how she runs. Uh, you guys won't be able to feel it, but I will I will be checking for that misfire on Startup I recall having felt that earlier I felt it when we started it out in the parking lot this morning and I want to check it right now starting the engine. Oh, the key is not in here. Hang on.

I'm silly. why did I do that? Got it right here. That's odd. I usually don't take the keys out of the cars.

Okay, take two starting Z engine. Why? What's going on? It's not stocking. What have I done? It's not. This is not working.

Did I break it by unplugging stuff? lock unlock I'm in the car I'm out of the car and back in the car brakes starting the engine. Weird. whatever though. Anyway, I have not felt A vibe.

no misfire. This is good. All right. Powering down, shut off button sticky I Think All right let's go fetch our engine cover.

put the cover. back on because it's not supercharged. Unless it says that it's supercharged. We don't want to downgrade it, do we? So I'll slip this guy back into his home here.

It's got two little rubber grommets in the back. those slide into these little slots right here and then in the front there's two more grommets and it it moves downwards and pops into those. So we just slide those in just like so that one's misaligned on that side. Got it and then down and another down right here.

Missed. Uh, there they are in the back. See that? There we go. Okie Dokie closing up.

Let's do the test drive phase closing the land at Rover Range Rover Hey, why do they call it a Rover twice? I Think: Can't it just be a Range Rover The engine. All right. let's get out of here. Let's go at the road see how she rides Run long.

So far so good, no misfires. let's give it some steam. Yeah, it's got power. Love the supercharger.

Forced induction is the best unless you got a bunch of huge turbos on teeny tiny little Motors that's a I think that's kind of like burning the candle on both ends. but other than that, love Forest induction. All right guys, this thing is good to go. I'm gonna head around the block, hit the big road up.

go back to the shop. call it a day. See you guys later. Thanks for watching and Land Rover.

    My wife drives this model. I drive a Ram Cummins. Personally I hate RR but they aren't as bad anymore, they are just normal bad now.

    Does anyone check the gap on sparkplugs anymore? When I used to work on my late 1960s and early 1970s cars we always checked the gap on the plugs. Haven't changed plugs in years now.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheOnespeedbiker says:

    Back in the late 60s Ford installed big block V8s in their Mach 1s. In order to pull the spark plugs most mechanics had to loosen the motor mounts and jack the engine up, but I discovered the triple wobbly could also do the job.

    Hi Ray, That extension dealio kinda looked like something I had to do to get the Oil Sending Unit out of my 2011 Denali 6.0. But it works. 🤙

    I'm sure you are aware that the use of the swivel on spark plugs can crack the insulator, caution, caution.

    Indeed there were 13 months .. or more correctly there were Lunar 13 years in 1 solar year. There were 13 signs of the Zodiac too.. the spider being the 13th one According to Kenneth Grant in his book "the circles outside of time" He took over after Alestair Crowley had gone . every lunar day had 28 days.

    Land Rovers are amazing vehicles. Their ride quality and chassis build quality is really good. They are great, until they're not, which is normally after 50k miles. It's a shame really.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars edgeofvamp says:

    In these newer vehicles with coil on plug, that monitor the spark closely. I've been ohming out and getting plugs that are closer to each other on resistance. Haven't dealt with many denso plugs, but have with ngk. They have been consistently within .3 of each other. Pleasantly surprising and boasts well for their production line.

    Unfortunately, the Range Rover has a reputation for not being a very reliable luxury full-size SUV. Repair-Pal gave it a reliability rating of 2.0 out of 5.0, ranking it 15th out of 19 vehicles in its segment. J.D. Power gave the 2021 Range Rover a reliability score of 72/100 and the 2015-2020 model years an average score of just 73/100. The 2020 Range Rover was also given the lowest predicted reliability score of 1 out of 5 by Consumer Reports. Most owners Love these Vehicles but most have Warranty and often Buy Extended Warranty…

    In 1582 Pope Gregory XIII introduced his calendar which properly accounted for the solar year and corrected the miscalulation the Julian calendar had been losing since its introduction by Julius Caesar in 46BC and had run out of sync with the seasons over time.
    January 1st is close to the winter solstice. Julius Caesar decided that January 1 was the starting date of the new 12 month/366 day year, instead of the previous 10 month/355 day year, to honour Janus (god of rebirth – January), but the solstice is usually around 21 December and is the middle of winter. At that point winter is fading and life is about to start coming back to the world, so a new year is starting. February is from februum (purification) and the ritual of Februa. Got a problem with it? Take it up with the Romans.

    It's ridiculous the amount of work you do to get to tthe spark plugs, A single coil and distributor much more efficient. and cheaper
