SOURCE: 1994 Land Rover Discovery is not running on all 8 cylinders.

there are 3 things needed for combustion fuel, compression, and spark. if you are missing any one of these you will have a misfire. you can check spark easily by pulling off a wire and making sure it arcs (make sure you are not touching the vehicle while touching the wire or you will get shocked, not enough to kill you, but is painful). to check fuel you can use propane and SLOWLY!!!! open to the intake and if the injector is stopped up it will smooth out (because it will start running on the propane instead of the gas in the car). if you open the propane too quickly the car will stall. the propane almost always works, but i have had a couple of times it didn't. to check compression you would need a compression gauge, compare readings from cylinders, if one is considerably lower than the others you have a valve train or more serious issue.

Alarm system 96 land rover discovery

You can't remove alarms or bypass them, you have to fix them.

Disconnect the battery fully for at least 2 hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes.
PUT THE KEY IN THE IGNITION, but not turned on.
Connect the Positive lead to the battery.
Connect the Negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the ECM to re-pair the chips in the key and the ignition key.

I want to change the leads on the spark plugs. i

The part that you unscrewed from the spark plug is what allows the plug cap to snap onto the plug. Screw the little adaptor back onto the spark plug - and the plug cap should then snap into place with a little pressure.

1984 land rover v8 109 will turn over but not fire

check you have a spark at your ht leads, i.e, turn the engine over holding a lead to the engine, if you can see the spark, then your spark plugs need cleaning/changing, if not check your distributor brush as sometimes the carbon brush wears on v8 land rovers.
