Landrover Freelander Serengeti Diesel 2.0 2003

HI, I have a Freelander Serengeti Diesel 2.0 with 119,000 miles on the clock. I have had the car since new and it has been reguarly dealer serviced.
Recently we had the vehicle serviced, and seperately two new tyres put on the rear. After these changes I started to notice that once I got up to about 65 mph the engine noise increased and vibration around the driver footwell increased, almost as if I needed to change gear (I was already in 5th), I still have acceleration although the faster I drive the noiser it gets. So now if I drive at speed it sounds as if the engine is straining and I am concerned that I am might be doing damage. At less than 60mph everything is fine.

    I have a 2002 Freelander. When I get to speeds around 65mph and accelerate my truck will shake but when I take my foot off the gas then it will ride smooth again.

Sounds like the wheel balance is out on the new tyres, if the rears are out of balance expect the car to shake, if the fronts are out expect the steering to shake.
Best thing is to take it back and have the balance checked. Also good idea to stay with the same make and type of tyres all round.

Low Fuel Pressure on Landrover Freelander TD4

From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.
