Question about 1997 Land Rover Defender 90
Starts fine runs fine as you go through the gears it feels like its holding back and it feels like it needs a cough changed petrol filter no improvement now put stp fluid in to clean jets any advice will be welcome its a rover 200 but can't get system to accept it
I would start by looking for the valve on the fuel rail (or at the filter housing), if you disconnected the fuel pipe from the filter feed you will have a lot of air in the system (and diesels do not like air in the feul system) you will need to have someone crank the motor over while you push in on the schrader valve to release the air out of the system until you get fuel to flow steady out of that port (this may take a short period of time), then you should be able to start the vehicle... would also recommend replacing the fuel filter as well. Hope this helps.

If the engine is revving but the car doesn't move faster , I would be looking at the clutch or Gearbox.Sounds like the clutch is slipping.
Have your mechanic check it out.
Hope this helps.

it's an odd occurance but it sounds like the hydraulic fluid in the clutch lined may have boiled. it's usually okay once it's cooled down, but if the pedal feels weird you may want to bleed your line.

Testimonial: "Sorry for delay in reading solution just move house, bleeding the clutch! is this a easy job, where abouts is the bleed nipple? thanks 4your time"
If you're standing looking at the rear of the vehicle, it's on the chassis rail on the right hand side rear wheel arch.

for Land Rover Discovery 1999-2004 no more external Fuel Filter serviceable anymore...it's a built-in part with the fuel pump. so if you want to change the filter then change the whole fuel PUMP.
