Question about 1996 Land Rover Discovery

2 Answers

My 1998 Series 1 Discovery drives ok but when hot at idle speed the revs hunt and the engine stops. It always starts immediately. I tried changing the air flow meter but no change. It definitely seems worse in high ambient air temeratures. Fuel consumption is truly awful even for a Rover v8, I get about 300kms on a tankful. Any ideas? Thanks

I had the same problem. Had to go to Landrover dealer who traced the fault to the fuel temp sensor. Repaced all OK.

This is issue with the IAC (Idle Air Control) Valve, i also had the same problem, I got it it cleaned but after 2 weeks the problem came back again. Now that i have replaced the ICA valve it is working fine.

Firstly get it cleaned, that will also confirm it is issue with the same.

1998 suzuki swift idle problems 4 speed 1300cc


no engine type stated, there are 6 engines used.
but bad idle is caused by 2 things.
  • misfire.
  • or lean AFR, lean fuel mix.. causes HUNTING
the ECU can also cause the hunt if it can not hold hot idle to spec.
most cars is 800rpm.

I have a 1997 lumina with 3.1L. the problem started with loss of power under load and p0300 code. check coils and vacuum leaks both OK.change spark plugs and wires.[same problem] check compression OK.


Since you changed the sensor we will assume it is working. When you disconnect it you put the computer in limp mode which stops it from using sensor values. If code 300 is the only code we will assume the coolant temp sensor and others are ok.
I would check fuel pressure with a gauge next.

I wish to adjust the idle tickover speed a wee bit on a 2007 Ford Transit 2.2 Duratorq engine. It is currenlty ticking over at approx 800 rpm and is hunting at this rev. If I could raise it a wee as I do...


First ensure that the throttle interior is really clean, a surface layer of grime can upset the ECU's ability to meter and govern the air entering the engine. If the throttle body interior is found to be really oily and dirty check on the idle air control valve and make sure that it too is cleaned up. Next put the ignition switch in position 2 (on, but no start) and depress the accelerator fully and release. If there is an issue with the throttle position sensor this procedure can help the ECU relocate the throttle plate position. Start the engine and if it is still hunting locate the air mass meter (AMM) on the air ducting immediately next to the air filter and disconnect the electrical connection. Does this remove the hunting aspect?... the rev speed might change but for the moment concentrate on the evenness of the tick-over. If the idle is even when the AMM is disconnected but hunts when connected then look at replacing your AMM. Try spraying the AMM with no residue electrical cleaning spray to see if this improves matters.

My 1990 Celica won't stay at a steady idle. It will fluctuate between 1100 and 1800 RPMs every second unless I have it in a gear driving or rev the engine past 2000 RPMs.This started after getting it back...


Here are the most common causes of idle surge, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Engine speed hunts on idle. Auto trans slow shift.


The fast idle valve is inside the throttle body. Sometimes it backs out and needs turned back in (it's threaded). This will cause the loping idle.

Get transmission filter changed with new fluid. Honda does not recommend transmission flushing.

Landrover discovery Td300 1998


the rev counter on the 300tdi disco takes its speed signal from a wire connected to the back of the alternator (single spade type connector) this wire usually breaks rewire and should be ok

cruise faults are usually caused by a vacuum pipe splitting check all the vac pipes to the cruise control actuator in the engine bay and at the brake pedal switch of end are split cut off and refit pipe

Engine high rev at stop and slowly goes to idle speed.


I've got Hyundai Lantra 1.6 year 2000. It's take time to start when it's hot. When I start my car it revs at about 2k-3k rpm. It also does it when I come to a stop. When I come to a stop it will stay at a higher rpm than that of idle speed. It drives ok when on freeway but uses more petrol. I have changed the water & petrol pump but no luck
