Question about 2003 Land Rover Discovery

Open Question

My automatic td5 goes in gear but will not move forward or backwards

I was towing yesterday with no problems when suddenly the car would move forward but revs were high still. I switched ignition off & on again and it seemed ok so carried on towing - now it wont move forward or backwards.

The tranny may have an intercooler and the fluid levels could be low. Check your tranny fluid levels and inspect for leaks. This tranny cooler will be upfront and look like a small radiator.

SOURCE: 2000 Discover TD5 Auto harsh vibration under power at 2000 -2500

The "lift off and it goes away" is the clue I feel. This eliminates engine out of balance issues and points squarely to fueling issues. I would say try a compression test (always a good first start before you try much else) but with plenty of power and no vibration except in the range, probably not a compression issue. So, what's left? Fuel or air is the answer. Check air inlet path is from air filter to turbo and (more importantly) from turbo to intake manifold. Check wastegate on turbo is OK - disconnect the wastegate (it's bolted on to the turbo) hose, then **** on the wastegate hose, you should feel resistance. If not wastegate aneroid has perforated. At this point, I suggest taking it to a LR dealer and get them to pull all the engine codes. If all OK, next step is injectors. It's a common rail diesel and removal is a bit tricky, but if you pull them out, you will often be able to see a single injector with all the carbon deposits around it. If all injectors look the same, suggest that at this point you need to take them to a diesel specialist for testing and calibrating. This process usually cures 70% of diesel misfire problems. The other 30% really requires specialist knowledge of your vehicle's engine.

SOURCE: why wont my 1998 discovery td5 go past 4000 revs

If it's an automatic, then odds are the box will change before 4000rpm, though it does redline at 4800rpm. If you pop it in sport, you may push more out of the box before a change up.

Have you checked the oil recently? I'd suggest changing it fully rather than topping up, and checking for any signs of metal in the oil (the drain plug should be magnetic, but running the oil into a plastic tub then sticking a magnet in to the oil and waving that round should find any not on the plug. Lots of Metal = Bad.

Toyota Corolla Fielder CVT transmission problems, please help


I don't know about your model.
But did you change the transmission filter & install new gasket?
From the air filter, remove all that to the engine without breaking or move anything inside.
Clean it well with MAP Sensor Cleaner, be very careful not to move the inside flapper.
Take as many photos as you can in case you don't know how to put it back together correctly.

There are to many things that can cause this issue. At my best guess, I'll say an issue with the ignition switch or harness. The wire harness from the ignition switch could have a break from it or has been rubbing against a metal part causing a short and shutting down your engine.

This is the best i can think of since you have mentioned that your air bag and and power steering service light came on. I'l have them inspect the wire harness more closely to the ignition switch and replace if any sighs of worn area.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Problem with ignition switch, starter, flywheel


that sounds correct what happens is the starter still tries to engage the flywheel and grinds the teeth off both. Replace switch then worry about starter flywheel if it starts fine don't worry about it you may have saved it if you didn't let it run that way long
