Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

My TD4 clutch has gradually gone soft

Over the last couple of days it has got harder to engage gears. I had a new clutch fitted 25000 miles ago and have had two new clutch cylinders over the lst 18months. Rerservoir at the rear of engine compartment (difficult to get at) appears full. Any ideas on what might be wrong or how to improve the gear change?

The Clutch disc and Release Bearing for the TD4-Freelander, were replaced recently. The Pressure Plate was still in a good condition.Gears difficult to engage.Please advise.Tks.John.


Most likely still has air in hydraulic clutch slave system. Many transmisions will have dificulty shifting if clutch doesn't full disengage. If air is in system it won't allow full disengage thus difficulty in shifting even possible grinding gears

W hat do i do with problem with gears in mitsubishi rvr 1995 diesel a couple of days ago couldnt get 5th gear now i can get 5th again and cant get 4th


The first thing I would do is make sure the clutch is working a leaking slave or master cylinder would give you problems with 5th gear and reverse possibly 4th depending on the transmission .
If the clutch pedal is engaging off the floor you likely have a problem with it .With a hydraulic system the higher grabs the better the disk is .Also if fluid is leaking out then air is getting into the system .
Try having the clutch bleed .
The transmissions last a long time 3 to 4 hundred thousand miles if the oil is changed every 3 to 4 years .
However they are extremely complex to rebuild and hard to get parts for unless you know some people .
So bleed the clutch then drain the transmission oil see how much comes out should be at least a qt .and half also look at the pieces of metal small stuff is OK but large pieces like gears and clips are not.

Have freelander td4 03 plate, continuous problem with clutch. had new clutch , slave cylinder and master 2 months ago, all fine till a month ago lost pedal completely , had new master fittted problem fixed...


Definitely a hydraulic issue. Iknow you said they were both changed, but its usually the master & slave assembly that go faulty on the Freelander. Both parts come filled with fluid and pre-bled and only require fitting, no bleeding. Check with garage to make sure they did not split / bleed them.

I have a 2002 freelander TD4 and we think the clutch has gone when u push the clutch pedal down it just stays there and wont come back up does this sound like the clutch has gone?


Sounds like a clutch control problem. Did you check the fluid in the clutch master? If you get a leak and run out of fluid this will also do this. This vehicle uses DOT 4 brake fluid in the master.

I have a 1987 Toyota Celica with a clutch problem, i just had the clutch redone 2 yrs ago. It seems that the free play of the clutch is gone, my pedal just sits right above the point where it would engage...


you ride the clutch excessively ,and slip the clutch between changes ,i can make a clutch last for 200,000kms ,but i have customer who has a new clutch every 6 mths to a year and he does just over 1000kms in that time .he will not use first gear and doesnt change down just rides the clutch to go up hill .he clls it clutch control ,i do not care because i make good money from this cantankerous person who knows how to drive with clutch control ,he even holds it on a hill on the clutch instead of putting handbrake on and then gearbox in neutral -I am just fitting him another clutch today ,the last one was easter last year .
