Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

Car Runs and Loses Power and Quits Running

I have a 2002 Freelander, July of last year I was driving back from Springfield, MO to Tulsa, OK and about half way the car started loosing power and quit running. After about 15 minutes it started up and would travel for about 20 miles and then again had to wait 15 minutes and the vehicle would start up. I took it to my mechanic and he said the intake manifold needed to be replaced so it was replaced. The vehicle ran fine, but I took no long trips out of town. Now the problem is coming again and it seems to happen when the weather is warm and humid. I took it back to my mechanic and he could not find anythng wrong. Last night I drove for 18 miles and it lost power and quit running, I waited for 5 minutes and it started. The car sat for 1 hour then on my way home I drove the vehicle 15 miles and it died, drove it 5 miles it died, drove it 2 miles and it died and then fortuately I drove it home. Today I drove 20 miles to work without incident. Please Please Please Help me. Thank You, Sherry

    Coming back home from Sydney, Aus......ran fine abt 300 kms.......then on an uphill stretch of the highway, the power just reduced and the engine quit. Started on the first crank went a few kms and the same thing happened twice.........so called Roadside Assist who said he will follow me to the nearest town (20 kms )and also check for if it happens again. I had waited for him for abt 20 mins. But this time it ran as if nothing was wrong. We stayed the night over in the town and started early morning to find that nothing was wrong again...........so i wonder what could have happend. Yes, it was a warm and very windy (with lotsa gusts) day.

    But now after abt 15 days of that incident I am getting strong vibrations which seem to be related to the rear of the propshaft.......though this does not seem connected to the prob I had earlier. Anyway the whole thing sounded very similar so I thought I should write.

    -Cheers,
    Chai.

Try cleaning the fuel pump filter. Under the seat behind the driver lift the carpet and you will find a round cover with six screws remove the cover. The fuel pump is directly below unscrew the retaining round plate and remove the pump. At the base of the pump is a small filter if it is covered in black muck that's your problem. clean and replace. job takes about 10 mins good luck. please let me know how you got on!

    Tthanks Shaun. I'll do. My '02 Freelander starts but stalls, when I go into Drive. It'll re-start, but same thing. The "Sevice Engine Soon" lite came on (not Check Engine lite ). But when this happened, my Defrost light also came on dash. Well, wish me luck, kid. Just 65,000 miles

Car loses power for short time after normal running and cooling down for ten minutes


sounds to be symptomatic of a CTS (coolant temperature sensor). there are two, one is for the interior temp gauge, the other is for the ECU/PCM while both are basicalty the same part, often even the same P/N, they both do extremely different things.

I have a 2002 freelander TD4 and we think the clutch has gone when u push the clutch pedal down it just stays there and wont come back up does this sound like the clutch has gone?


Sounds like a clutch control problem. Did you check the fluid in the clutch master? If you get a leak and run out of fluid this will also do this. This vehicle uses DOT 4 brake fluid in the master.

First thing to do is check all fluid levels, and top them up as needed, especially rad & oil. Have you checked owners manual for explanation ?

2002 Freelander, all electrical died, jumping battery didn't work


Most likely right.... if the alternator quits you can often run off the battery but once you start accessories like wipers . heater etc it will not last long

Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one.
