    pcv hose blew off - bad egr or pcv valve?

    Here's an update: So I replaced the egr valve. Went with a dirt cheap WVE unit from Rockauto. I was quite pleased when I opened the box and it had a made in Japan Denso label on it. Came with 2 new gaskets too. Seems I got their last one as it's out of stock now. Needed to get the torch out to...

    2006 LR3 Christmas tree - dark instrument panel - then dead

    Have you checked the battery cables/connections and the big fusible link on the positive cable? Intermittent loss of power via the cables or fusible link would be my guess

    Carpet replacement?

    Yeah I've thought about it, but the carpet on the back gate is glued on, so I don't think used would work out well for that area. And if I do the rest of the carpet I want it in new condition, since the intent is to freshen up the appearance - there's nothing really wrong with it except being a...

    Carpet replacement?

    I was hoping so - I guess I'll have to take it by one and see what they say. Really just need the back liftgate carpet done, as it was rubbed off in a couple spots when I got the vehicle. That should be a lot simpler than the main carpet anyway

    Aux Input?

    It's in the back of the center console under a lid that flips up. Doesn't work very well though - needs a small amp to boost the volume....

    pcv hose blew off - bad egr or pcv valve?

    It still runs great since this happened so I'm leaning towards an occasional stuck egr or pcv valve. Will be replacing replacing both, even though I did the pcv a couple months ago - just to be safe....

    Carpet replacement?

    Anyone have experience or knowledge about replacing the carpet in an LR3? It's on my bucket list you could say, but I can't find any molded replacements available online and don't see any threads about it. Are auto upholstery shops equipped to do this?

    pcv hose blew off - bad egr or pcv valve?

    No, didn't pump the throttle at all. It was definitely more like the sound of a hose popping off than an explosion. I mean there could have been a backfire as you say, but didn't sound like it...

    Fluctuating RPM's at constant throttle (throttle hunting, surging, gear hunting)

    I had the exact same problem. A transmission pan and filter replace & refill completely fixed it. Fixed my "California stop" issue too. I was prepared to also replace the valve body with a good used one with new sleeves (and maybe new solenoids) but it wasn't necessary.

    pcv hose blew off - bad egr or pcv valve?

    Need some help if anyone has some ideas about this: Yesterday I was starting my 2008 LR3 with about 160k miles and the 4.4L V8. It had a delayed start, cranking for about 10 seconds (which it has been doing intermittently maybe 1 out of every 25 starts for a few months - runs great otherwise)...
