A small but comprehensive troubleshooting guide to the Series I, II & III Land Rovers. The book focusses upon the most common problems experienced by Series Land Rover owners, from engine sounds to suspension problems, and provides quick, sometimes innovative roadside repairs to get you on the move again, together with detailed advice on more expensive repairs. Covers most civilian models, including petrol and diesel engines, this is an essential book for Series Land Rover drivers.

Designed to be the mechanic in your glovebox, useful for troubleshooting, identifying issues and suggesting roadside fixes for 101 common problems related to Series Land Rovers – both on and off-road.
The user-friendly layout uses extensive cross-referencing, helping you quickly diagnose a problem. Solutions for everything from sudden engine failure to unfamiliar sounds and smells are provided in topic-specific chapters.

There are also tips on preventative maintenance.
Featuring innovative temporary fixes learnt from years of on and off-road driving, plus over 100 diagrams and photographs, this book can help get you and your Series Land Rover back on the road – or save you a long walk through the bush.
