Question about 1999 Land Rover Discovery
It is the V8 with auto box and when in 4th gear it seems to either misfire or get to much fuel, but have been told it might be the gear box?
A misfire feels like the engine is studdering, is that what it does? If it is a misfire you will also have a blinking check engine light when it occurs.

It sounds like you need to have your d-tent adjusted which is your kick down cable. I would take it by a local transmission shop and have them take a look. This would be the simplest, most accurate answer as to what is going on. If they say your transmission is shot, ask them what they believe the problem to be. Automatic transmissions are complicated. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Engine misfire...
First off what you want to do is see if the coil is keeping fire to the cylinders. If so is the fire blue or redish/orange. If it is blue then its not a firing issue. If it is red then you probally need a new coil. Now if you chose option A then check the spark plugs and make sure they aren't fouled out. The way to determin this is that they will be black and smell like gas really bad.If not then check the spark plug wires and make sure they are not ripped, broken, cracked, or show any signs of failure, If not then make sure it is getting plenty of gas. If not then it is either the fuel pump or the fuel filter. If it is a fuel injected engine then make sure the injectors are all working properly. To do this you will probally have to bring it into a shop and have them check. If it is a carberated engine then manually chock the carberatur by holding the top flutter valve closed for a second or two. If the flutter valve gets covered in gas real quickly (in less than 2 seconds) then it should not be a problem with the carburator. If you are still haveing problems with it after checking all of this then give me a shout back and i will see what i can do.
