Question about 2002 Land Rover Freelander

Hi, 2000 Landrover Freelander 1.8 petrol, failed MOT on CO emissi

Hi, 2000 Landrover Freelander 1.8 petrol, failed three MOT emission tests for high co reading.
1st test (with a cat which when removed proved to be completely empty!) produced fast idle readings of 0.720 & 0.740 & idle reading 1.220. (fast idle max limits are 0.300 and idle is 0.500) 2nd test (new cat fitted) gave 0.670 & 0.692 at fast with 0.665 at idle. 3rd test (New plugs, oil & filter changed, air filter renewed, breather pipes cleaned and injector-cleaner added) returned 0.874 & 0.647 with 0.798 at idle. HC readindgs are well within limits and lambda too is closer to top, but within limits. Exhaust firm have today replaced new cat - said they had had a few faulty units - and it goes for 4th emission test on Monday. Any ideas or suggestions as to what this might be would be most gratefull appreciated. Many thanks.

Check both lambda sensors for breaks in wires and for open circuit on heater side of lambda sensor on the one under the car on the second cat,failed heater element will not heat gas engough for sensor to read causing false readings , also check for slow i.a.c valve on inlet manifold.

What operate the 4x4 in the transfer box of the landrover freelander 1.8 Petrol. The switch on the gear lever works but the wires are disconnected and I see no switch or valve on the gearbox or transfer...


Freelander is permanent 4 wheel drive. The switch on the gear lever is for downhill decent control. These are usually diconnected when there is a problem with one of the ABS wheel sensors not working, causing three warning lights on the dash to display. Google Freelander Three Amigos.

Oil is mixing with antifreeze. landrover freelander . 1.8 petrol. year 2000


Sorry to be the one to tell you but you have a major expense on your hands. It is either a blown head gasket (the cheapest solution) or a cracked head (the next most expensive solution) or a cracked block (don't ask! ). Take it to a shop and have them do a compression test to find out which cylinder is leaking. Then get at least three quotes on repairing the damage. Good luck!!

My volvo v70 has failed the french mot test due to high emissions ; the cat con is only 2 years old ; what is the best way to approach this prob


CHANGE THE OIL TO TOP QUALITY OIL THEN CHANGE THE SPARK PLUGS TO BETTER SPARK MOST PROBABLY IRIDIUM THEN CHANGE THE AIR FILTER TO A BMG AIR FILTER (THIS AIR FILTER DOESNT EVER NEED CHANGING) THEN FILL THE PETROL (IF IT NOT DIESEL) WITH HIGH OCTANE (98ron) AND ADD RACING OCTANE BOOST TO THE PETROL TANK AND THAT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND YOUR CAR WILL GO A HELL OF ALOT BETTER YOULL SAVE ON FUEL ALSO THE IRIDIUM SPARK PLUGS DONT HAVE TO BE CHANGED FOR AT LEAST 100.000KLM HOPFULLY THE PETROL AND MORE AIR GOING IN WILL HELP

Ford failed MOT on High CO emission


High CO usualy means the O2 sensors are not reading properly. Take it to a parts store that can read codes, I know Auto Zone does in my area. If it is the O2 sensor it is an easy fix but the sensors run about $50.00 each.

Lambda probe fault possibly


I bought a 2000 polo 1.4 yesterday after having an MOT. The warning lamp came on today but the car is running fine. Whether its the Lambda sensor or just the light itself is a common fault, I think garages turn off the lights to get it through the MOT then they come on again in a day or two!
