    Just hopped over from Misc. Chit-Chat section “The Latest Fight Over Car Importing”. I’m the owner of the 110 discussed in the Jalopnik article. After sitting idle for nearly three years, I’m not surprised that I’m having issues getting her back on the road and I could use some advice...

    85 110 V8- Idle speed is too high. Checked to make sure the choke cable is slack and not still engaged. Same with accelerator cable. Backed idle speed screws completely off until the no longer touch the arms. SU's and the 110 are new to me and I am stumped as what direction to go next. Guessing...

    Hi folks, I've been working on getting my injectors replaced and I'm seeing some feedback from the group at large. Two videos: 1st is pre-injector swap and the 2nd is post-injector swap. I swapped out the injectors after *thoroughly* and carefully cleaning the inlet ports as they were NASTY...

    Hello Everyone, I have a 97 NAS D90 with 130k miles. Starts up great when cold, idles perfect until engine gets warm. By then, it will not hold idle as it appears to flood. Strong gas odor when you shut it off. Once this happens while driving, the only way to get it back home is to keep right...

    1991 RRC with 300TDI. I've had the truck about 3 months. Previous owner installed the TDI about 5 years ago. About 6 days ago I was chugging up a hill at 50mph and then engine died then restarted within 2 or 3 seconds. Didn't have any trouble till yesterday driving home. Engine was low on...

    2.5 NA diesel Tithonus Just got the truck today and noticed it is running rough at idle. Once in gear everything is fine. Also some white smoke on startup. Any idea on where to look first to smooth out the idle?

    Anyone know off hand if the ICV controls the kick down on high idle? This is on 95 classic. Unless I jump in and tap the accelerator, it's off to the races.

    As many times as I've gone through this I'd think I could quote part #'s. Truck idles way down then spikes only to idle lower repeating process untill eventually dying. I'm thinking it has to do w MAF sensor but looking for a likely confermation from someone else familiar with this Rover...

    Hi folks, I just got my 300tdi project started for the first time in a year and half, so a big win there. And after melting the wiring harness on the engine and replacing it today, I'm trying to tackle the next bit: a crazy high idle that's pouring smoke out the exhaust. Here's what I know: *...

    I'm sure this has been addressed but I am on mobile and have trouble searching the site. I recently had a new clutch installed, and the timing belt and pulley changed. 90% of the time I have the usual vibration from the engine that doesn't rattle the glass or make the rear view mirror shake...

    Hey guys, this morning I noticed what sounds like a fast idle? I will attach a video. You will hear that when I give the truck a little throttle the idle seems to slow and when I release the pedal it seems to go back into that fast/rapid rattle sound. Any thoughts?

    Fun times! Wondering if the same pulley is used in the 4.0 p38 engine as my defender 90 50th?

    For a Rover 3.9L with a distributor driven oil pump, what should be the oil pressure at operating temp and idle? The workshop manual states at 2400rpm and operating temp the oil pressure should be 1.76kg/cm^2 (~35psi) States nothing about idle. Thanks!

    Truck running fine. Will start so not a battery problem but won't keep on running unless the gas is continuously pressed. It starts repeatedly but always dies.

    Starting new thread... Still having idle issues on the RRC... Ordered some new hoses, replaced, no obvious changes. Replaced AICV with different one, no obvious changes. Cleaned out T connector, it was dirty, no obvious changes. Checked for any other loose hose connections, nothing noted...

    Hi guys, I remember seeing a pulley that goes onto the access hole of the fuel pump pulley. Anyone know of the part number for this? Thank you, Michael

    I just purchased my first defender a few days ago and i couldnt get it to start this morning. It always took a few mins of choke to get it started and warmed up but i had the choke all the way out and the only way it would keep idling is by giving it a bit of gas, but as soon as i let off it...
