Hello

#1
Hi all, I just bought a 2000 sc. First Rover. It's difficult to start. is running rough and has an oil leak somewhere, but I'm sure a good service etc will sort a lot of that out. I have one, rather silly question, if you don't mind regarding the auto gearbox - would someone mind explaining the use of 1 & 2, especially as 2 is between 1 and D on the selector?

Thanks all!

D is fully auto, 1-2-3-3-2-1

2 is SECOND gear only. It will pull away in second and stay there. It will also stop the car rolling backwards on an uphill start.

1 is FIRST gear only. It will pull away in first and stay there. It will also give you engine braking on decelleration.

You can move the gearlever 1-2-D for manual shifts.
