Question about 1995 Land Rover Discovery

2 Answers

Hi, i have a manual Landrover Discovery 300Tdi, 1995 M reg. Upon taking up drive there is a clonk from the transfer box where the front propshaft comes out. Is this a repairable area or is it easier and cheaper to just change the transfer box? Many thanks, Mark

    Are you sure the noise is coming from the transfer box itself ?, it could be coming from a worn universal joint or UJ as they are known that are situated at either end of the propshaft, UJ's are about £10 pounds and a couple of hours labour could solve your fault

All Land rovers suffer from clonks in take upo of drive. Most common is that the gearbox mainshaft not only wears itself but also wears the input gear of the transfer box. They can also exhibit this problem from other parts such as drive shaft and drive plate spline wear, worn radius arm bushes, A frame top ball joint, engine and or gearbox mountings. If the clonk is coming from the prop shafts, then by the time you hear or feel the clonk, the prop shaft is propably for throwing. They have big problems with prop universal joints and usually are replaced quite often.
Hope this helps

Steps to removing a transmission from a GMC ENVOY 2004 V6, 4WD.

Park the vehicle in a clean dry well lit place. Work with safety in mind. Its always good to take pictures as you strip the/ a assembly. Refer back to pictures if you get stuck. Dis-connect the battery. Remove the gear linkages and speedo-drive and power cables from the gearbox. Remove the starter motor. Loosen the propshaft. Mark the yokes of the propshaft- for upon installation to avoid an unbalanced propshaft. Loosen the centre bearing. Remove the propshaft. Remove the cross member underneath the gearbox if there is one. Loosen bolts around the gearbox to cylinder block. Use a gearbox jack to support the gearbox. Take the bolts out from the gearbox to cylinder block. Pull gearbox backwards. Lower the gearbox. This is pretty much the standard way of removing gearbox. Note, there might be a transfer box, normally with 2 propshafts. Mark the yokes. Remove propshafts, transfer box and then gearbox. Remember to always work safe.

My Landrover Discovery 300tdi 1995, loses power drastically to almost stopping point. failing to climb steep hills and check engine comes on, only going off when I stop accelerating. This has been gradual...

replace ignition coil, spark plugs, also double chek your coolant temperature must be normal. overheating causes car slows down and engine cant handle excessive high temperature or may damage it.

Gear box

Hi Steve, without knowing a bit more about your disco, ie, age, 200 or 300tdi, can you get all the gears when in 4x4 ?,it might be difficult to pinpoint your fault, but going on your first description i would say that the high range on your transfer box could be the problem. Do you have a local transmission repair workshop to you?, they should be able to confirm this for you

I am trying to find out if the wiring is in my landrover 300tdi

any aftermarket lights have to have the wire loom ran. when you run the loom make sure that it is protected and out of the way of things. also when going through any peace of steel make sure that you use a gromet so the wires don't get cut.
