Engage "normal " driving gears as you call them and try to drive. have someone look under the vehicle to see if a propshaft is spinning (theres 2, one at front, one at rear) if one of them is spinning the fault lies in the axle its connected to. (my suspicion) when you engage diff lock (4x4) you will be driving on the good prop and axle, risking possible damage to the broken unit. if neither prop spins then the fault lies in the transfer box / gearbox which will be harder to locate. either way if your not competant repairing mechanical stuff, its a garage job.

All Land Rovers are permanently in four wheel drive, they do not have the capability to drive in two wheel drive, unless you remove one of the propshafts and put the diff lock in.
so you must be more clear in your description of the fault.

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

My 2000 land rover discovery 2 sd model will not engage into 4 wheel drive and the engaging handle has no pressure at all?


Your DII is (always) in 4 wheel drive. There is NO 2x wheel drive option on a DII, it's always in 4x4 high, or low. To select 4-wheel drive low, put your transmission in neutral and pull down the high low gear selector.

When i put in gear makes loud bang more so when car warm it sounds more like front diff than gear box area( common ) land rover discovery 95


Gear clunking is normal in the Rover's transfer case. It uses straight cut gears - they are stronger, but louder. If not out of the T-Case, check the front driveshaft - another common wear point.

Transfer case oil change- 1999 Land Rover Discovery II


No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. I think both plugs are 1/2" square. Fill to overflow with Texaco Multi-Gear 75W/90R. Takes about 2L or so.

try the simplesr first is the transfer lever actually in high or low if they dont get used much they get very stiff it may have got knocked into neutral by accident hence no drive give it a good shove back and forwards until you are sure it is high box

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.

Can barely change down to second gear on Land Rover Discovery


have oil level checked ,then when driving double the clutch as it sounds like a baulk ring,caused by hammering it into gear whilst going too fast trying to be a boy racer jeremy clarkson prodigy.second gear shouldnt be engaged whilst coming down the box at anything much over 20mph.expensive repair but driving with patience and a good driving technique it should last forever.

Land rover discovery 1994 gear selection


Hi there!

I'm a Land Rover owner myself - old school Series models.

This sounds like major gearbox trouble.

As the selector shafts are different for gears #2 and #4, I may be inclined to think there is an external problem around the base of the gearlever.

Probably cheaper to have a look here first.

If you've been offroading, it's possible you've managed to get a stone in there.

With the covers off the transmission, if there is no fault externally that you can see, then the gearbox may have to be stripped to find the obstruction.

You can always join one of the Landrover forums to assist on this and other matters.

Hope this helps you. If it does, please rate as Fixya! Thanks.
