Question about 2005 Land Rover Freelander

1 Answer

Loss of torque

The freelander developed a diesel knock, it was sent in to be checked before my holiday trip. The dealer could not fix the car in time but gave it back to me and promised no damage could occur.

I checked oil and water before my trip and noticed that the pipe against the firewall was not clipped in... I checked around to see if I could see any other funny loose pipes etc and noticed that a brass/gold l shaped shaft where a pipe should be was missing.

I went away and defentitly noticed that power was down, on my return the fixed the diesel knock which was an injector but I still feel that the car is down on power. A hill which I normally could climb in 5 gear at 120 cant even be achieved in 4th gear anymore.

I will check pipes for leaks, cracks etc this weekend but still not sure if there is actually a pipe required from the gearbox (perhaps this is a vacum pipe of sorts?)

Your timing belts are probably loose or worn and the timing is slightly off which results in diminished power. check out for freelander needs.

How do I fix what I've been told is a little end replacement?

It would be more likely a connecting rod bearing that has worn and possibly spun.

Depending if you want a long term repair, the whole engine will have to be stripped and inspected for oil starved components.

Or you could remove oil pan, carry out a main and big end bearing roll, and clean up any damage to crankshaft with fine strip emery cloth, run and see how it goes..

It really does not hurt anything but your ears. However, if the noise is annoying you, there is a replacement intermediate steering column shaft available from the dealer that is re-designed to fix this problem.

The car sputters under aceleration. I had the dealer replace spark plugs two computers, spark plug coils. Fixed the the problem for a little while but came back....

A shot in the dark but fuel pressure regulator. Actually might be timing belt or timing tensioner due to it happens under acceleration and puts more torque on the engine.There is many other things that can cause this but I figure that the check engine light doesn't come on?
