Landrover TD5i Defender xs Doublecab 2005-Engine?

I have had the car for 4 yrs with no probs.Recently though I have been feeling some ''drag'' as I go through the gears and felt like less power.Today i was doing 70 on the motorway and suddenly the engine started racing,a terrible noise started and masses of smoke billowed from the exhaust,when I took my foot off the accelerator nothing happened and the engine kept racing,after 10-20 secs it went back to ''normal'' and I managed to nurse it home.What do you think it can be please?

Good afternnon, I have a landrover 110 diesel 1987 the engine wont rev initially but if you hold down the accellerator it will slowly pick up.After engine has reached high revs when you remove your foot...

Its possible the fuel lift pump is faulty. remove the fuel filter, if you see that its half full of fuel, then this will tell you the pump is at fault.
There is a lever on the fuel lift pump, turn the ngine till you feel itgo harder, then feel the travel of the pump and if it is firm or easy to operate.
Lift pump failure is common on these.

Steering noisy and stiff

The belt is loose or dirty or the pullys are of a different V Degree. Check all of these things

Good Luck
