    Not a fixit! post but a suggestion post. If you have a check engine light my best advice woould be to go to any automotive store and have your codes read. Sounds like a simple fix but need to know what codes your vehicle is spitting out. Oh, the test at the auto parts store is free!!!

SOURCE: Freelander TD4 2004 Engine light comes on at 3000rpm cuts power

I don't wish to worry you but I think the turbo kicks in at around 2500rpm and it sounds like it isn't doing so, hence the management light coming on. It could be that failing. Be careful here, apparently the turbo uses the engine oil to maintain its operating temperature and if the turbo seals fail in anyway it eats the engine oil, with the resulting total failure of the power unit. So if you do nothing else, keep an eye on the engine oil level. (You may also notice oil smoke out the exhaust as well).
Unfortunately it looks like a trip to the dealer for them to check what the engine management is saying.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter in Freelander (replacing)

The fuel filter is located below the electrics box, half way between the battery and the bulkhead on the passenger side, under the bonnet. It is very difficult to see how it all fits, but it has a central screw which holds the plastic filter housing/mounting in place. Find this screw (which is a small self tapper) and be prepared to loose it, or use a magnetic screw driver. Then lift the plastic housing up and away, (towards the engine) be ready with loads of rags to catch the diesel fuel when you disconnect the pipes. There is an earth wire attached to the housing also. (anti interference, I think) It is quite a fiddle getting it back again, as it has two locating lugs on the back of the plastic housing/mounting.

SOURCE: freelander td4 power loss at 70mph

yeah, don't drive so fast!!!!...seriously i would do what has to be done anyway to start. change fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, spark plug wires. these have to be done at some point if they haven't been.. if that solves your problem, if not look at fuel pump, injectors.u didn't say if it used to go faster, maybe there is a limiter.

SOURCE: fuel filter freelander (petrol)

The fuel fillter is in the but you shouldnt have to drop the tank to get to it or the pump. Lift the back seat and you will see a plate held in place with screews take this off. Below this is a steel plate that you will have to spin off may need help fro a hammer as they are tight. Some are badged BWM. This gets you to the fuel pump and the filter

hope it helps

Hissing sound and lose of power going up hill


I am assuming you have a diesel as based on your description, the most likely cause is a split or crack in a turbo hose. You will also get black smoke if that is the cause.

Truck loses power, can splutter, and really noticeable around corners, bumps and up, down hills. We have cleaned fuel tank and lines, fuel filter but problem still there.


If you are positive that the problem does not lie with the fuel delivery, then you might have an intermittent connection somewhere in the ignition system. Did you check all the connections? Coil(s)?

Probable clutch needed


If you put your car in 1'st gear, release the clutch pedal and nothing happens, absolutely the clutch is faulty.
