Talking Rovergasm!!!!

It's fixed!! Three months and nearly $3k and it's finally fixed. The last problem, the one that stopped the engine from passing 3200 rpm.......was two large holes in the air tube between the MAF senser and the plenum.
A special thanks to Pendy for numerous phone calls and the time he spent helping me. It was Pendy who suggested I check the air tube as we were running out of options.
I patched it up the holes temporarily with electrical tape to see if that fixed it. It runs GREAT now except that I found a blown exhaust gasket lol.

Thanks to everyone that helped and weighed in with suggestions.

How the hell did you end up with two holes in the air tube?

We get calls often from guys that say they dry rot and start falling apart. They look tough but I guess engine compartment heat dries them out.

It would appear that at sometime the retention bracket was shoved down allowing the tube to touch the steering shaft knuckle. It wore 2 big wholes in it. It looked perfect until it was all the way out of the truck.

Was this the hard fiberglass-type air tube? or the more flexible corrugated type?

I am very glad you got it fixed. Good work Pendy--I would not have thought of that. I might use this technique in the future to upgrade parts on my D90--I will poke a hole in my air intake tube, buy a 3-link suspension and long travel shocks to fix it, put in a roll cage, tell my wife it still is not running, then put some duct tape on the hole. Great suggestion--if she gets pissed, I will tell her it was your idea!

I hope for your sake she doesn't know the address of this board. That could get ugly.

That's good to know. I have the hard fiberglass type hose and for a while it was cracked and caused the check engine light to come on. I didn't notice any performance problems though. Some duct tape was a short term fix that keep the CEL turned off until I replaced it. I remember that hose was really expensive to replace.

I convienently have the same problem only the cause of mine is the supercharger displaces the hose just enough to rub on that knuckle.


Did you replace it with the hard or corrugated type hose?

I replaced mine with the corrugated style on Penndy's recommendation. I found a really good deal for it at www.wholesalelandparts.com

Rover 1994 Air Mass Meter Hose Price: $80.95 Qty: 1 Part #: B3100-142215

All of the other places I looked wanted ~$220 for the same part. This is a Land Rover OEM part. I have no idea why they were so much cheaper. Hope this helps.

Thanks. The best price I can find is $262.00. That will help a lot.

Don't worry Paul. The part I recieved was in a plastic bag with a LR sticker. It was identical to the one I pulled out (other than no gapping holes). Nice tight seals. Works great.
