Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander
Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. the filter is on the bottom of the pump inside the tank.You get to the tank from under the seat behind the driver. Job takes 10 mins.

It may be a bit of **** in the fuel line or filter needs changing

SOURCE: fuel filter freelander (petrol)
Not sure what year your Freelander is, but i have a 2002, and was told by my mechanic that the Freelander does NOT have a fuel filter. It is located in the gas tank, so if replacement is needed, i gather your tank would have to be dropped for repair. My fuel PUMP just went out on me this past Saturday to the tune of about $1k (part and labor)...

The fuel filter is located below the electrics box, half way between the battery and the bulkhead on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is very difficult to see how it all fits, but it has a central screw which holds the plastic filter housing/mounting in place. Find this screw (which is a small self tapper) and be prepared to loose it, or use a magnetic screw driver. Then lift the plastic housing up and away, (towards the engine) be ready with loads of rags to catch the diesel fuel when you disconnect the pipes. There is an earth wire attached to the housing also. (anti interference, I think) It is quite a fiddle getting it back again, as it has two locating lugs on the back of the plastic housing/mounting.

I don't wish to worry you but I think the turbo kicks in at around 2500rpm and it sounds like it isn't doing so, hence the management light coming on. It could be that failing. Be careful here, apparently the turbo uses the engine oil to maintain its operating temperature and if the turbo seals fail in anyway it eats the engine oil, with the resulting total failure of the power unit. So if you do nothing else, keep an eye on the engine oil level. (You may also notice oil smoke out the exhaust as well).
Unfortunately it looks like a trip to the dealer for them to check what the engine management is saying.
