    1998 D1 Warner Robins, Georgia - Sold

    Up for grabs is a 98 D1 LE with just under 210K on the clock. I have owned this truck since 2006 and while my aspirations for making it a trail rig were always there, it never came to be. It has been a solid daily driver for the most of time I have owned it and even taken me safely from Alaska...

    Another Stuck Key Problem

    I have been looking through old posts trying to figure out why my key is stuck in the ignition. :banghead: I have gone through several easy steeps first before getting ready to take the ignition out. Here is a list of the things I have tried: - Turned the wheel towards the ignition (no...

    Alaska to Georgia

    I finally completed my 5400 mile move from Anchorage, Ak to Warner Robins, Ga today. My 98 D1 held up like a champ considering the CEL came on just outside of Sidney, Ne. It seems one of O2 sensors went out on the right side (P1158). I'll replace all four of them since I just went over 140K...

    New TPS/High Idle Issue

    I replaced my throttle position sensor and as expected my idle has jumped up around 2000 rpm in park and around 1200 in drive. I plan on taking it to the a mechanic to have the ECU flashed, but I wanted to know if you guys would think it would be safe to drive it to him as long as I give myself...

    Spare Tire Carrier Lug Bolts

    Are these things threaded into the carrier or are they welded on? I got into a rush with an impact wrench and stripped not one but two of the bolts out! :banghead: The worse part is, I know better than to use an impact when starting to put them on.

    Late Night Humor

    This is from newshound Dave Barry's colonoscopy journal: I called my friend Andy Sable, a gastroenterologist, to make an appointment for a colonoscopy.. A few days later, in his office, Andy showed me a color diagram of the colon, a lengthy organ that appears to go all over the place, at...

    Power Steering Line...HELP!

    I'm in the process of replacing my power steering line that goes from the pump to the gear box. I removed the line of the box, but cant get the line off of the pump. I went and bought a 16mm flair nut wrench to get it off, but no luck. I cant get the right angle to get the wrench seated...

    Fuel Pump Problems and Extra Cold Temps

    We have been having some really cold weather (-20's) in Anchorage the last few days and my 98 D1 is giving me an odd problem. If I live my truck plugged in (oil, tranny and battery heater) over night, when I come out in the morning to start it, it cranks like mad, but it will not turn over. In...

    Need Your Help Quick!

    Let me first start off by stating myself that I'm a dumb ass. Now that that's out of the way, here is the problem. I was replacing my viscous fan tonight and wound up busting one of the blades off. Here lies the problem. I need the truck for work in the morning. I am trying to crazy glue...

    Confirming Bad O2 Sensors

    I have a 98 Disco with 123K on the clock and the gas mileage is getting worse. The vehicle is completely stock and I'm getting about 10 MPG in the city about 225-250 miles per tank. I know that Disco's are not known for their superior gas mileage, however I'm getting worse mileage than guys...

    Might it be that it is too cold out?

    Have any of you experienced this problem? When the temperature here drops into the negatives, the disco turns over, but it wont start. I put a new battery in that jumps the CCA's to 795 from 675 and still get the same result. After the ambient temperature gets back up to the single digits on...

    Is there an easier way?

    I'll be changing my transmission fluid/filter out this weekend for the first time and I've read it takes up to 7 hours to do. Is there an easier way than what the rave CD shows or some shortcuts that will cut this time drastically?

    Rear Wiper Gremblins

    I've been trying to figure out why my rear wiper hasn't been working. I just chalked it up to the gremblins. So this morning it was cold enough to have ice on the windows, so I put on the rear defroster and decided to try the wiper after about 10 minutes and it worked! Besides it being...

    Anchorage Bound...80w or 90w

    I'll be heading up to Anchorage around the 1st of Dec and I'm thinking of running 80w in the diffs and transfer case. Would that work or should I go with the standard 90W?

    Which Transmission Type for Filter Change

    I'm getting ready to change out the filter and gasket in my tranny (automatic) and I'm not sure which one I have, the ZF4HP22 or the ZF4HP24. I looked on line and the gasket/filter looked the same, but I want to be sure before I tell the guy at Napa which one to order. Thanks for the help.

    Cruise Control Dash Light

    After being deployed for 9 months, I had to fix the vacuum hoses that dried out for the cruise control. For the life of me, I can't remember if there was a cruise control light on the instrument cluster that comes on when the speed was set. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks.

    I finally got one!

    After months of searching I finally bought a 98 Disco LE! I should pick it up this weekend. I couldn't pass it up at $6800. It has a few minor electrical problems (rear wipers & rear fog lights are inop) it has a small leak in the transfer case and the steering gear box. Other than that it...
