Question about 2004 Land Rover FreeLander

Engine malfunction light came on

Whilst driving my diesel freelander 2003 model at 70 mph on the motorway last night there was a sudden **** and the engine malfunction light came on. I slowed down and drove the vehicle 5 miles home. It drove fairly well but there was a slight shudder now and again. The light went on and off three times. The vehicle is now parked up and hasn't been used since

As with any check engine light, the only way to find out what the issue is is to have the code read. The dealership can pull the code and let you know what the issue is.
Before considering driving the vehicle to the dealer though, check the obvious: oil level, coolant level, transmission oil level.
If your uneasy, have it towed.

Hi There, My Freelander loses power at about 70 mph on hills on motorways and slows down to 60-ish. I have no warning lights coming on, no drop in revs, no exhaust smoke and no overheating. After easing...


if your vehicle slows from 70 downto 60 with no change in revs ,then the transmission is slipping .. imust say i dont believe that the speed drops back without the revs dropping down too, i am not calling you a liar ,i`m saying you are not making accurate observations , and without those we are just guessing .

Sounds like the wheel balance is out on the new tyres, if the rears are out of balance expect the car to shake, if the fronts are out expect the steering to shake.
Best thing is to take it back and have the balance checked. Also good idea to stay with the same make and type of tyres all round.

Chris
