The Range Rover sport utility vehicle is a four-wheel drive automobile produced by Land Rover in the United Kingdom, owned by India-based Tata Motors. First manufactured in 1970, the Range Rover is currently in its third generation. Like many vehicles, the Range Rover is known to have a few transmission problems, such as a stuck gear shift, limited acceleration, or the engine’s failure to start. Troubleshooting these problems can help you save money in the long run before the problems become more expensive.

Step 1

Pay attention if your Range Rover is sticking in park or first gear. This is most likely due to the governor sticking. The governor is a device that senses the output shaft speed and provides signals to the hydraulic control valve telling the transmission when to shift. If you change the transmission filter and transmission fluid, this should remedy the problem.
