If you didn't pump the fluid out of the torque converter that is where the difference is. As to the indicator light I'm not sure. Have you allowed the engine to reach operating temerature? That is necessary for the fluid to flow completely through the system.

When changing trans fluid on Rovers - you fill to full mark, then start truck run to normal running temp (in park or neutral) and top up to fill mark. Sounds like you have air in system. Here's free RAVE download manuals - http://www.landroverresource.com/

I accidentally put automatic transmission fluid in the engine instead of engine oil. I have started the car, its a landrover freelander 1. Is it going to damage the engine and how do I drain it?


I'd drain it from the oil pan underneath the car. Fill it back up with engine oil and a can of Seafoam, drive it around for a day or 2 then drain it again. Replace the filter each time also. Think you'll be alright if you didn't do heavy driving with it in your engine.

Weird! I have put in too much oil in to my 2001 Jetta TDI. I take off the plug and drain it, but it's still away above the full mark, and now, no oil comes out of the pan! Never seen anything like it....


are you sure your checking the motor oil level with the motor oil dipstick and not the trans dipstick,or your removing the wrong drain plug and not draining the motor oil but another oil like transmission.

1996 landrover dicovery , breaklights staying on all the time. Removed trailer wireing and checked break pedel switch , which is working fine. Heard that there is a second switch on the transmition...


I have the same problem. Up until now that I have time to correct the problem the right way I have had a spring attached to the brake pedal that keeps it from pushing the brake llight switch on. Makes the brakes hard to push but keeps the lights off. I suggest taking to a dealer (choke) if you cannot fix it yourself or go to this site;http://www.lrrforums.com/index.php?s=2520478ada19011f439696be3e4e31d3
