    2017 Discovery diesel known issues.

    Outside of that one valve cover leaking into the timing belt I don't remember any other mechanical failures. The belt didn't fail we replaced it because it got oil soaked. I think the people who have less trouble with the DEF system are the ones who drive it hard. The people that talk about...

    2017 Discovery diesel known issues.

    These things run Piezo injectors. If you run this system out of fuel they get destroyed. When you take them out of the engine you need to keep them right side up and full of fuel all the time. I think the piezo crystals get destroyed when air gets in it. It's violent when the air bleeds out of...

    2017 Discovery diesel known issues.

    The only thing I can really think of is the DEF system is kinda flakey. Some people have no problems and it's probably driving conditions. All the V6 diesels are made by Peugeot. We had to do a timing belt because oil leaked on it from a valve cover gasket. As far as the DEF fluid goes I think...

    1996 Disco no start - please help!

    I was under one of my discos last weekend and I think I mis spoke. I might have been thinking about defenders. There is a braided ground strap coming off the lower starter bolt. Check that.

    1996 Disco no start - please help!

    There is also one attached to the t case. The ground that p m is showing you is important too. It's grounding your whole truck directly to the neg battery post. He mentioned that the picture is of a rt hand drive vehicle. So that big bracket won't be there, it will be on the left frame rail...

    LR 3/4 weak points

    Not really sure what wire harness on the right side would cause air suspension issues. But I would be looking at a connector behind the left wheel house liner. It's behind the wheel. That causes all kinds of problems. Also one under the left air cleaner, down low by the radiator. Those 2...

    What's the thing doing? You said leaning? Like all the time? The car thinks it's level? Or it sinks down overnight?

    13 weeks? Did they give him something to drive?

    2020 Defender

    It will be in the dealerships soon. Pretty sure most of them that are here already are out in California for the launch or at the ports.

    How far have you driven it since that fuel pump driver failure? Probably around the world a couple times. Trust us, you had a very uncommon failure that really fucked up an otherwise great trip with your family. Go to a junkyard and get another fuel pump driver module and put it in your spare...

    Modifying a D1 SD rack to fit a D90?

    I'm hurt. We've had our differences but I've never wished you died in a fire as a young kid. I was still a good kid when old boy was alive saying that kind of stuff. There was no internet for people like you to troll. Lighten up.

    Tech changes so fast I would say only the last 2 years matter.

    LR 3/4 weak points

    Have not seen any issues with chains on a 3.0. But on the 5.0 it's becoming a big problem on high mileage vehicles. They make a lot of noise before they let go. So just stay away from the noisy ones.

    A 5.0 will never be bullet proof. Never, ever. Lots of power but glad it's almost gone. As far as that fuel pump driver module that destroyed PM's vacation one time, I have worked for Rover for 21 years and have seen 2 fail. Worry about overheating or high pressure fuel pumps and injectors...

    Could it really be the CPK AGAIN?!?!?!

    Just stick to the basics and diagnose the truck like you had never replaced the crank sensor. Check for spark. If you have spark your crank sensor is ok. If you have spark and it won't start then spray some carb cleaner in the throttle and see if it runs. If it runs on carb cleaner then you have...

    Modifying a D1 SD rack to fit a D90?

    Well yes. Most people on this board can take some serious flak. But some are a bit delicate. I am not at home right now and have the joy of being with a bunch of British cermugens. All of them very much the Land Rover community. I asked about your Numpty label and they thought it was a newer...

    Modifying a D1 SD rack to fit a D90?

    I'm not sure what you just called me but I'm sure it's a horrible thing to say. This reminds me of a time we had a guy named Elmer Fud come in and educate us in British insults. That whole thing went downhill fast.
