Question about 1995 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

No more than 25mph when cold:

I just did a conversion on my 3.9Ltr to 300TDi. Now, if it goes to zero celcius ( 32 F) over night, it is very hard starting in the morning ( with Glow Plugs left on for two minutes) and then won't go over 25MPH until there is at least 1/4 heat indicated on the heat gage. Say, about ten minutes of driving. Once warm it has power. I put on a new Fuel Distributor ( $5700 Canadian), but it changed nothing. ( Hope for better fuel economy.)When it snows, it won't start without boosting and running for 15 minutes. This is Vancouver, not even cold like most of Canada, but it is like that here even.

    We tried that, but....I think we will do a compression test. Bought the TDi from England with 143,000 miles on it, and IF it is worn out it will behave that way. May have to put in a Short Block.

Need 92 toyota paseo to pass CA smog test ! What causes too high HC in smog test????

High HC means moisture in the system. Try driving it longer then take it to the smog shop. Otherwise it could be hard like a head gasket or easy such as a PCV not functioning. Any ways you should always drive it about 20 miles before smog check, longer when the weather is cold.
