Brian Block (Ames, Iowa) - 1988 Land Rover Range Rover
An engine question. Car revs fine in Park, but in Drive it sputters, and won't go over 40 mph. Had test done, low compression in one cylinder. Can he fix it himself, or does it need a new engine? Tom and Ray think compression wouldn't cause this problem--more likely the transmission slipping. If he's lucky, it's just low on fluid--unlucky, he needs a new tranny. May be time to give this vehicle, "two in the hat."
