Gents,

Finally, some much overdue good news with a car that I was rapidly losing faith in…Some time back, the car went to my local main dealer. However, their tech could not find anything wrong with the car. I was not prepared to accept that a car costing nearly £40K should drive like this.

I recently discovered that a chap I used to deal with ref: Lamborghini, has now taken over the service facility at Wimbledon 4x4. They have revamped it and are an authorised LR service centre. I gave Allan a call and explained the problem. Over the phone, he told that this was a known problem and that there were a number of procedures that they could perform on the car that should resolve the issue.

They collected our RRS and left us with a brand new Freelander. The car was in for two days. While the car was there, I would get regular updates on progress. Long story short, they used a number of software updates and modified the diff. The upshot of all this is that the drive line shunt has gone Very Happy . I also had them look at the suspension as the car was not sitting level when in Access mode. That, too, has been rectified.

The car was dropped back to us, and I am extremely pleased with the outcome and the service. I can really recommend these guys. I have encouraged Alan (Service Manager) to become a member of the site, so that we can have direct access to his expertise.


For the avoidance of any doubt, I have no affiliation with Wimbledon 4x4 other than being a satisfied, new customer.

Hi,

I had the same shunt in my Disco 3 (54 plate) I told the dealer at service time and they told me there was nothing wrong with the transmission. I have since got a RR sport on an 06 plate and it does exactly the same.
Must be atrait of theirs.

My dealer said, "normal". He suggested that when these cars cruise along off-throttle, they put themselves into neutral to save petrol. So what is happening, if that is the case, is the gearbox re-engaging. Wierd?? 2006 Black/Alpaca, Hi Ice, Dynamic Pack, 19" wheels, Clear Pack...

Enzo I think your were told the first thing that came into the service managers head............................... when the car is cruising on a light throttle then the fuel ECU reduces and can even stop the fuelling to save fuel, the gearbox doesn't go into neutral 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for June delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 22 years and 11 LR products.....

2006 Range Rover Sport 4.4 V8 HSE Cairns Blue

This clearly feels like a transmission firmware calibration issue. The transmission mechanically is probably okay. Its likely that the shift points (shift schedule) and torque converter lockup schedule were not properly calibrated from the factory. I feel the same thing on my 2006 Range Rover Sport. It feels like the transmission is "hunting" for a gear.

I had similar issues with another automatic vehicle (1997 Ford Thunderbird) when I started messing around (re-programming) the shift schedule, line pressure, and torque converter lockup schedule. The car's transmission would "hunt" for a gear. This is why the Land Rover "patch" is fixing the problem. Its probably nothing more than a calibration update at your dealership.

The shifting of the vehicle is probably (I don't know the Jag PCM, just the Ford EECV) performed based on RPM, current gear (shift table selection), THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR (TPS). The TPS is a huge factor in deciding when the vehicle shifts. This is why you are able to reproduce the problem based on speed and how you apply the accelerator. 2006 Cairns Blue RR Sport HSE

United Kingdom 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Java Black

I have complained about this every time the time car has been in to the dealer for other matters (9 times now!). The gearbox has been re programmed etc but it has not made any difference.

IMO it is definitely a transfer box/rear diff/prop shaft issue. It is possible that re programming the auto box parameters could help smooth the drive uptake at low speeds but this feels very much like a back lash issue.

A techie from LR drove my car on a visit to the dealership. They did not let me go out with him. He reported back that there was no problem. I have driven others with much less of a clunk and have been advised to report if it gets worse. Which I do on every visit for the other trivia such as anti roll bar bushes (twice) rear door seal, steering rack, stereo, lower arm ball joints, bluetooth module,

I shall try and get the energy together to push again for this to be looked at as it definitely is not right. Thanks for the update and it is intersting to learn that folowing a diff modification Diablo's clunk went away...

I have had mine sorted but feel that this isn't the solution to everyones problems. My driveline shunt was huge but I have now had the rear drive shafts replaced and my RRS drives like new again. Thumbs Up 2005 Zambezi TDV6 - Gone but not forgotten
