Hi there!

I'm a Land Rover owner myself - old school Series models.

This sounds like major gearbox trouble.

As the selector shafts are different for gears #2 and #4, I may be inclined to think there is an external problem around the base of the gearlever.

Probably cheaper to have a look here first.

If you've been offroading, it's possible you've managed to get a stone in there.

With the covers off the transmission, if there is no fault externally that you can see, then the gearbox may have to be stripped to find the obstruction.

You can always join one of the Landrover forums to assist on this and other matters.

Hope this helps you. If it does, please rate as Fixya! Thanks.

No year. If it electric, replace the motor. It has a module built in it. If it is manual. Rebuild the T case.

My 2000 land rover discovery 2 sd model will not engage into 4 wheel drive and the engaging handle has no pressure at all?

Your DII is (always) in 4 wheel drive. There is NO 2x wheel drive option on a DII, it's always in 4x4 high, or low. To select 4-wheel drive low, put your transmission in neutral and pull down the high low gear selector.

I have a rover 216is auto 1999, when i select gears the engine moves is this normal as everything seem to be solid? thankyou

Inspect the motor and transmission mounts.

Check the drive shaft u joint for free play.

Most vehicle with over 180,000 miles will need attention on these area.

When i put in gear makes loud bang more so when car warm it sounds more like front diff than gear box area( common ) land rover discovery 95

Gear clunking is normal in the Rover's transfer case. It uses straight cut gears - they are stronger, but louder. If not out of the T-Case, check the front driveshaft - another common wear point.

Not moving in any gear

Have you checked the High-Low ratio lever.  Half-way between High and Low is a Neutral, so no drive to any axle even if a gear in the main box is selected.
Try locking the differential.  If this gives you drive, then it might be a final drive (half-shaft) failure.

Someone helppppppp

You need to give the gear shift cable on the injector pump a bit of slack as this is preventing change over.
