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.

SOURCE: fuel filter freelander (petrol)

Hi,
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)...

Good luck,
Patricia

SOURCE: Fuel Filter in Freelander (replacing)

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.

SOURCE: Freelander TD4 2004 Engine light comes on at 3000rpm cuts power

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.

Erratic idoling when warm


sounds like the air idle valve , if you can get hold of valve to test, try this find valve on inlet manifold and pull hose off going to throttle body,reconect hose to new valve so valves are i line to each other, start car and let it idle for a few moments till the fast idle slows down, then disconnect the wirering goint to the original aiv and connect to the new one , hopefully the original one would have been diconnected in the open position , reconnect wirering to the new valve and turn engine off. disconnect battery for 20 seconds . recon battery and turn ignition on, pump gas pedel 5 times to reset . start engine and let it idle for a few moments ,then try to turn steering wheel , engine speed should rise slightly due to load from power steering pump and then settle back down 875 1075 rpm.this is what the air idle valve should do. if it doesen't look at wiring goig to aiv might have scuffed through.

Freelander shuddering and gerking when accelerating in 3rd & 4th


More than likely you are having an engine missfire. They are reknowned for problems with the coil packs that produce the spark for the plugs. They it up the road and labour the engine until it does it on full throttle. then back of the throttle to see if it stops. |Then back on to see if it starts again. Most likely it will. Change the plugs first. this will probably cure it short time as new plugs reduce the load on the coil packs. Best change coil packs though also.
