Mike, I'm shouting! Its a 455, not 445. I think 445 is a slight leak where 455 is a greater leak. However, I humbly bow to the expert. Idle is not necessarily rough as when you disconnect a wire and run on 7 instead of 8. I think its just a combo of old plugs and worn wires etc.
Any ideas as to a gas cap? Saw Roverland parts has them for $25 maybe I'll just check a Stant website. Rover is great when running w/out problems. Just bugs me with all the little stuff (glove box has vibration, window regulator pops, etc.)
Checked previous service records and the #6 had a misfire at about 30k, I bought it with 42k. Wire showed open loop and they replaced. I'm wondering if that old code would show up when I had the codes run previously. Land Rover Dealer ran them so maybe their reader would show old stored codes. Also, had a transmission problem, thought I needed a new tranny but, after disconnecting the computer and reconnecting she got herself straight.
Steering wheel is slightly crooked. I noticed after I had a lower ball joint replaced. Would I have to disconnect steering shaft and reinsert?
How complicated is it to lift her? Only looking for an inch or two or really just to level out the front end.
Any idea as to the length of time the stock shocks and springs last? It doesn't get worked hard but, last hunting season my rear drive shaft came off my blazer and U-joint blew up when it hit the ground. Never had time to change so I rover'ed in the woods about 4 days a week. Wife was pissed at all the scratches. I told her sometimes you gotta charge it to the game.
Any other thoughts, ideas or insight are appreciated. My personal email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry for being long winded, trying to avoid studying for the bar exam.
