Check your motor mounts, do this by opening the hood and pushing the car back and letting it rock, if the motor moves more than an inch either way, your motor mounts are bad.

Losing power in accelation


Fuel filter is probably clogging up (it's common), which restricts fuel flow and makes it hard to make the needed power for acceleration or other high-load situations like climbing hills. Change it and you'll probably be fine.

Hard shifting


after checking oil level in auto box(top line on dipstick in "P")try this,without using any gas at all,put into drive and let car reach max speed (about 30/35).then using half gas do the same, without moving your right foot,then if safe do the same, with full gas.as the gearbox is computer controlled, you have just reset the shift pattern back to its start position.The car will now change according to your driving style,(if multi user,it will take about 50m to read your style again)
if driven hard it will change hard.......
any help??

The heater matrix on my 1996 landrover discovery tdi 300, is leaking, and I have bypassed it, however I need to replace the leaking one, and do you have a diagram of how I do this? Thanks. Simon


Hi:
You can usually get basic information on replacing parts that you purchase from the online autoparts stores, like www.autozone.com.

If you need really good guidance to replace your heater core, I suggest purchasing a 1 year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com For Approx $20, you can get step by step info on everything on your vehicle!

Auto light comes on when going up a hill or put foot down


The gearbox does on have a dip stick it has a filler plug up top and a two part drain plug on the bottom of the transmission.

What you do is once the engine is warm, with the engine running you remove the centre plug and is the gearboxs level is low nothing much will come out. Some will come out as the tube gets full from normal running. If it is high the excess will come out and will stop at the ring.

I had the same problem with my gear box. What I did was remove the tube plug and drain all the oil out of the transmission. You then fill it with 3.5 litres of "Type D" transmission oil. Nothing else. Not Dextron anything or their equivalent.

In effect you have just carried out an transmission service.

I didn't even bother checking the oil level as 3.5 litres is the amount you need to put in and the gearbox has been running perfect ever since. The new oil worked a treat. Snappy changes and the clunking change with the light on stupidity went away.

Not moving in any gear


Have you checked the High-Low ratio lever.  Half-way between High and Low is a Neutral, so no drive to any axle even if a gear in the main box is selected.
Try locking the differential.  If this gives you drive, then it might be a final drive (half-shaft) failure.
