I am thinking of buying a discovery 300 1995, it keeps slipping out of high raqnge when on fast roads. It dosent happen immediately only after driving for about 30-40 mins. Is this going to be and expensive fault to correct.

If disco is automatic move the transfer lever from high to low box and back again firmly then the key will come out there is a safety feature on the autos to prevent the key being removed if the transfer box is not in either high or low correctly with most dicso;s the transfer shift lever is stiff. through lack of use .once it is pushed in properly the key will release it works every time and I have had four v8 autos
basically you cant remove the key because even though the gearbox is in park if the transfer gears are not fully home the park sensor on the gearbox thinks it is out of gear eg not in park so wont let you remove the key and leave the car out of gear in case it rolls away .Dan
simple the oil seal between the transfer gearbox and the main gearbox has gone the oil is flowing through from transfer box there is a level plug on the side of the transfer box I bet if you check there is very little oil in the transfer box get it sorted before the transfer box siezes up through lack of oil
yes;;but before you do think back to when the problem started,did it start overnight, did you spot something different about the way the discovery was behaving have you checked fluid levels.Always rule out the simple things first.is there fluid dripping from undernieth the jeep.if your happy nothing simple is causing the problem then im afraid your automatic transmission has an internal fault,hope this helps.adrian
Hi Steve, without knowing a bit more about your disco, ie, age, 200 or 300tdi, can you get all the gears when in 4x4 ?,it might be difficult to pinpoint your fault, but going on your first description i would say that the high range on your transfer box could be the problem. Do you have a local transmission repair workshop to you?, they should be able to confirm this for you
