Range Rover Repair Shop
There is no doubt that the Range Rover is one of the world’s most prestigious, luxury automobile brands. With its origins dating back to over 70 years ago, this British icon is viewed the world over as one of the most durable and rugged vehicles on the road today.
J&Z Garage has over 20 years of experience working on Range Rovers of all types in Chicago. We have invested heavily in training our technicians to be the best in the business. In addition, because these cars are so complicated today and have many onboard computers controlling them, we also own the latest high tech diagnostic equipment to help us get your car back running the way it should be.
Range Rovers are very specialized vehicles and it takes special training and skill to repair them correctly. In addition, over our 20 years of experience with these amazing cars, we have observed that they tend to have mechanical vulnerabilities in certain specific areas. Here is a list of some of the most problematic areas that we have seen with these British beauties.
Range Rover ECU & Electrical Problems
Despite outstanding engineering and build quality, Range Rovers (like many British cars) tend to have electrical problems pop up from time to time. Whether these problems are caused by loose wires, corroded connectors, sensors, relays or computer problems, the origin of these issues are often difficult to initially pin point. Consequently, the repair should not be left to people without adequate training and experience. J&Z Garage has over two decades of time working on Range Rovers in Chicago and we can get your electrical problem repaired correctly in a much shorter time than any other repair shop.
Range Rover Oil Leaks
There are few things as annoying as oil leaks, as they make a mess on your driveway, garage floor and cause you to constantly have to check the engine’s oil level. To make matters worse, these oil leak issues can show up in cars with less than 60,000 miles on them. Common areas for Range Rovers to leak oil are valve cover gaskets, main seals and oil cooler lines. J&Z Garage has a great deal of experience tracking oil leaks down to their source and fixing them permanently.
Range Rover Parking Brake/E-brake Issues
If you have ever heard a screeching sound when applying your parking brake, your Range Rover is telling you there is a problem. Parking brakes that make loud noises are usually worn or badly out of adjustment. Parking brake repairs are not complicated, but they must be done by technicians that are experienced with them. There are a number of factors that can contribute to a malfunctioning parking brake and knowing how to diagnose the issue is key. If your parking brake is screaming at you, come and see us at J&Z Garage. We will know exactly what to do to get you rolling smoothly again.
Range Rover Steering Shaft Issues
Range Rovers have been known to encounter steering shaft problems. If you are hearing a loud or grinding noise when turning the steering wheel, this could be an indication that your steering shaft is faulty. A good way to detect this sort of problem is to turn the steering wheel at a slow speed. If you hear a noise or clunking sounds, come on in to J&Z Garage and we can have your Range Rover inspected for steering shaft issues.
Range Rover Sun Roof Leaks
We’ve seen Range Rovers with less than 50,000 miles on them experiencing leak issues with the sunroof. The problem is usually caused by a sunroof drain that has been pinched or blocked in some way. Your Range Rover has a beautiful interior, so be sure to keep it undamaged by addressing a sunroof leak as soon as it is detected. You’d be surprised the damage that can be done to a leather interior by just a little bit of water.
Range Rover Air Ride & Air Suspension Bag Issues
People love the smooth, air-like ride they experience while traveling in a Range Rover. The floating sensation that owners enjoy so much is actually from their car’s air suspension technology. If you notice that your car is leaning or sagging on one side, the most likely cause is that a leak has developed somewhere in the air bag system. The experienced professionals at J&Z Garage can diagnose the source of the leak, repair it and get you back on the road quickly. It’s not always a simple process to find a leak in the air suspension system, so put your trust in our many years of know how to get the repair done correctly, the first time.
