Good morning guys please I have 2 range rovers sports 2006 and 2007, the 2006 petrol I bought and used for over a year then the engine got bad, so I bought a diesel one bcuz the petrol engine was expensive and also consumed a lot bcuz so I later on bought a diesel 2007 which got bad with 6months apparently the guy who sold me the diesel had repaired the engine before and I didn't know. So I wanna repair both cars and sell one but I wanna replace the original engines with either a Bmw m57(diesel) and for the petrol range I was thinking of using a jaguar s-type v6 or some kind of Toyota v6 or v8, please suggest any better engine other than the ones I have stated which could be better for the swap, I still want the automatic transmissions

Replace with stock engines, if this option is too expensive for you sell one as scrap and use the funds to repair the other to stock form.

shortcut will only land you a very expensive coffin on wheels.

What kind of brake pads did you buy?
Worn out brake disc can also cause it to making it not to grip well.
Kristolite:
Good day everyone. I drive a 2004 Camry and the issue is, my brakes are not as hard as I want them to be. I got them changed (the linings and brakes pads) 2 weeks ago but it has gone soft and not as hard as they were 2 weeks ago. Just want to know if there's anything I can do about it. Secondly, what is the function of the 02 sensor? Hope to get a reply soon.

Few hours later, only for me to start the car and it never start again till date(over 2wks now) i called a mechanic to check it, he suspected that the timing was jumping which he corrected, only for him to see that it wasnt supply current to the plug and he said its a rewire's job.... Now the reiwre has checked all the fuse and all are okay...in the process of trouleshooting he had to check the brain box and realised the wires have melted together..he seperated the wires and ask me to start the car, yet he didnt come up which made him condemed the brain box, I bought another brain box and that one just got burnt too....PLEASE GURU'S IN THE HOUSE...KINDLY ASSIST ON WHAT TO DO PLEASE

See ehn. If money is the problem, just park the car till you can afford to. Maintain it right, before you damage it down the line!
How many kilometers has it covered since last service date?
When was last service?

Record odometer reading each time you service and schedule next service to 3,000km or 6 months - whichever comes first - if using mineral oil (them 20w50)
