Hi
It's an odd fault so I will try my best to think of things you should be looking at, but Im not 100% on this one.

Check around the exhaust manifold and down pipe somthing may be touching it when the car go's up hill. check the lambda sensor wire, and engine loom & wires around this area.

as its a 4x4 I would check the prop shaft is not contacting anything also.

Not much moves back when the car does so it's a tricky fault.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

I smell gas when driving my 97 land rover discovery. I do already know I need a fuel pump. Is the gas coming from too much being injected into the engine, thus leaking out because of the bad fuel pump?...


I know that if a fuel pressure regulator is bad it will emit the fuel smell under hood. but just be sure you have no fuel leaks in the fuel lines first. good-day !

range rovers have alot engine issuses. you need to have the engine tunedup, plugs, air filter, wires, cap, rotor, oil change. also have the catalitic convertor inspected. you may need new 02 sensors as well.

If this Land Rover has an Automatic transmission or if you are using full time four wheel drive the problem is in the chain driven transfer case. You need a transmission rebuild.
