Question about 2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

I have a rover 25 diesel when I first start the car, or when it has been standing a while, I put the car in first gear to pull away, I put my foot on the excellerator and there is no power at all when I pull away it just drags, after a few second with no further presure on the pedal the car just shoots forward.

The gearbox needs to pump oil to the tourque convertor to move the vehicle forward.I would suggest having the oil level and quality checked.Let the vehicle warm up a bit before pulling off.

How do you engage 4 wheel drive in a freelander TD4, 2 liter, diesel, maual

I am only answering for one reason. If it that you can't get it to go into any 4WD position, try getting the Rover to "roll" (slightly) to assist you in "slipping" it into 4WD. If you have never put one in 4WD before, you may find (front tires, center hub) two "turnable thingies" which are "hub locks" that should be "IN" or "ENGAGE". Put your Rover in first gear, get it rolling a tad, throw it into neutral and pull the 4WD lever before you stop rolling. (Usually, you just stick it in Neutral and pull the 4WD lever to where you want it). Land Rovers are like Jeeps and like to fight you using that 4WD selector stick. heheh... Best of luck or blast me back if I ain't on the same page with ya.
