Plenty off coolant in reservoir? Does the car overheat during normal driving or only on trips?
Does the car run rough and do you have white smoke coming from tail pipe?
If not then it could be 2 possible items
First check the viscous fan clutch is no frozen, this is the unit in the middle of the plastic fan, it should spin freely with a slight bit of tension. Or the radiator more and likely is clogged, I would suggest you remove the radiator (or get your mechanic too) and get it rodded-out.
Hope this helps, and don't drive the car hot, you could cause major engine damage on this vehicle if your not careful.

My heat takes too long to get hot.


check your coolant level and top off if needed. its probably time for a new thermostat as well. make sure you get one from land rover when you do this and the proper mix of coolant and distilled water depending on where you live. cheers.

Radio code


I had a new cd player fitted to my 97 discovery and that did. Raido codes are free, providing you can prove ownership. Just visit a main landrover dealer, they got mine in about 10 minites.
