    Free, You Pay Shipping Thread

    I need one for my clock. Do you know if the 'bulbs' are the same for D1 / D2s (I have a D2). Where did you find the bulb?

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    I ran a lazy vs cheap analysis and decided to replace the coils and injectors instead of troubleshooting further. I just wrapped up installation of the new coil packs and six* refurbished injectors. Fired it up....and took it around the block a couple times. The Beast is running great! I'm...

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    Yup...injectors have O-rings. I'm waiting on a new set of injectors to arrive.

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    I've already replaced the spark plugs and installed a new set of 8mm Kingsborne wires. I've confirmed there is spark using two types of basic testers. And yes, I did hear the injector open and spray fuel from the residual pressure. However, I don't really know if either are working within...

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    Well...this sucks. Got the bastard back together and took it for a spin around the block. I'm still getting a P308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected code. This is getting annoying. I guess a new coil pack and set of injectors are up next...

    95 disco 1 speaker wiring diagram

    Are you trying to bypass the factory amp? I installed a new head unit and replaced speakers (front door/rear gate) in my D2. Handy trick: once you think you've found the correct wires going to the speakers (coming out of the amp), grab a 9 volt battery. Connect a wire to each terminal. Connect...

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    Finally had a chance to pick up a compression tester and coolant system pressure tester (loaners from Autozone). Looks like the misfire may be the result of a coolant leak. Here is what I found. Compression test looked good 1 - 150 -- 2 - 155 3 - 150 -- 4 - 160 5 - 155 -- 6 - 150 7 - 160 -- 8 -...

    Discovery 2 parts in SoCal

    I know this is an old thread, but any chance the air filter box is still available? I need one for my 2003 Discovery.

    Diagnostic Tools for Newbies

    I have the Foxwell NT510 Elite (~$160-$180). It has been super useful in troubleshooting so far. I have been noodling on the idea of picking up a spare keyfob, since my truck only came with one. As mentioned by others, the Foxwell doesn't program keys. However, I've seen kits that come with...

    P0308 Cylinder 8 (only) Misfire - New Plugs & Wires

    Truck had been running strong for months. Last weekend I got a P308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected. Yesterday, I replaced the spark plugs and installed a new set of Kingsborne 8mm spark plug wires. After the repair, the truck fired right up and ran fine on a short test drive. However, took it out...

    Bullet holes and blood in this one

    Statistically you're way less likely to get shots fired at the same car twice...or so I'd imagine. I think you could market the bullet holes as a safety feature.

    2003 CDL Install Confusion

    First off...donniefitz2, thank you so much for including a copy of the instructions and the amazing video. I've already watched it several times. I have a 2004 transfer case that will be the nose cone donor for my 2003. Do you have any tricks / recommendations for getting the gears and spline...

    It’s $40 + you email me prepaid shipping labels to slap on the boxes. The $40 is a handling fee. 😁 I did an online price estimated with FedEx. It's ~$140 to ship ground. OR....Rancho to Oceanside is 90 min each way. If you want to pick them up then they're absolutely free (well...minus your...
