SOURCE: Series II Discovery oil leak from the front steering union

Unfortunately Discoveries will always eventually leak some fluid, People who say theirs do not leak have just not found the problem yet. I just traded a 2003 for a new vehicle. First the power steering can and does leak but since the fluid capacity is not that much, if you have a continous leak and the power steering still works it is probably not the leak you need to address. also the plastic splash guard makes it difficult to identify leaks easily. My 2003 discovery was leaking for a while the leak was from the auto trans cooler. Check the leak colour, white paper under car, red fluid will be the trans fluid, The power steering fluid in the car is a special fluid (not trans fluid) if the correct fluid would be a greenish colour. Other than this oil leaks can be plentiful.

I have a 1995 C280 Mercedes Benz when in park or neutral idles real low as it is about to die then idles back up to 1000 rpm and continue to do the same. usually stays running though. In drive or reverse...

Not a Mercedes man but if it was a domestic I would say check the readings on the Throttle position sensor first. it should not change unless the throttle is physically moved. after that check the Idle air control valve motor. Hopes this helps. if it was a fuel issue should do it in gear at idle also.

Can the Neutral position switch cause my land rover to die while in drive mode?

The 2000 Discovery with code p1590 is not neutral safety switch, this code 1590 is for the ABS rough road signal circuit malfunction .this is can be caused by a bad wire or sensor problem. The ABS is the anti lock brake system and will not cause engine to die out.

the problem you list is more of a signal loss for crank sensor or other sensor but most of the time a sensor fault that cut engine should set a code no matter how fast or often, so i would have to say it must be a fuel problem, the fuel pump stops pumping at times causing loss of power and then picks back up.

What scan tool are you using that told you this was a neutral switch? is this a small code reader?
I would let the dealer scan it with a real scan tool and see what is going on, when you say it dies while driving are you saying the engine shuts off and you need to restart it or is it a loss of power at which you can not give it gas or engine revs up but wont go?

At a stop light the car will cut off. Autozone used there code scanner and it says code P1780 and P0727. what is going on with the car.

Hi sirlowdown, I'm glad to help!

I don't know what vehicle you have but I'll take a best guess at this anyway. The P0727 is an Engine Speed Input Circuit No Signal. This is why your engine dies when you stop the vehicle. The reason is because the engine controller has no idea what RPM's the Engine is running so it dies and your lucky because I don't understand why your engine is even running without this signal. The engine controller must see various sensor and signals to calculate what to do next and if even one of these sensors are interrupted it can cause all kinds of issues. This could be the "Engine Speed Sensor" The Wiring, The Connector, The Engine Controller. All these things must be checked individually to know which one is causing the problem. The other code P1780 is a "Park Neutral Switch Malfunction". This can cause the controller to NOT KNOW which position the shifter is in and cause the engine to stall as well and again I have know idea why the starter will even turn the engine over if it doesn't know its in the 'PARK or NEUTRAL" position. Both of these issues must be checked and repaired before your engine will operate normally. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

Car will not chnage from park position when put in reverse,drive

I think there is a cable for this that goes to the transmission. Problems with them are broken cable, or loose cable clamp especially on the transmission end. It is also possible that the end attached to the transmission detent got unattached, or the end to the shifter did. Rick
