It could be due to a slight loss of compression from your head gasket going out. compression can be tested with a simple meter attached to a cylinder, but it may not be severe enough to be detectable.

you dont always see smoke or coolant dripping from out of your tailpipe when the head gasket does bad, but if the coolant has an oily film on top, then you should strongly consider it.

Misfires when cold

Just means it isn't warmed up yet when sputters and misfires. Most likely a bad connection on the temperature sending unit in the engine or that sending unit is faulty. This sending unit tells the computer when engine is warm or cold and has to be functional. When working properly, it tells the computer to put engine in cold start mode, which it is not doing. The sensor is stuck in open position or warm mode and not giving the engine enough fuel when cold making it misfire and sputter. Fix that and you'll have no other problems with revving either.

Constant engine jerking and misfiring

What the problem might be is that you need a tune up. New spark plugs( NGK Laser Platinum- $10.00 ea.) and new ignition coils at 18.00 ea from All you need is a good mechanic or someone like me that is good with cars to put them on and you will see the difference.

2003 freeland code p1319 , misfire code po301,po302,po303,po304, misfire at idel, high speed drive fine,

OBDII those codes generally mean misfire.

P0300 multiple missfire
P0301 missfire cyl 1
P0302 missifre cyl 2

Ensure you have the proper spark plugs. Check the coil boots/wires, look for burn marks. Anything beyond that you may have to take it back to the shop.
You are misfiring on all 4 cylinders and it is not spark plugs. Those misfires if not addressed can cause serious engine and/or cat converter damage. There are lots of things that could be causing it and most of them need to be checked out at a shop - unless you want to invest several thousand dollars in the appropriate equipment and training.

My y reg freelander has a droning noise from back of car ,thought noise was berring .jackt up 1 back wheel tried to turn but seems 2 be still in gear

Possible tyre noise, Have tyres been changed from left to right lately. Each tread section wears at an angle and changing direction of rotation will create noise. Just a thought as i had this problem with a vauxhall.
Regards. Rob.

Loss of torque

your timing belts are probably loose or worn and the timing is slightly off which results in diminished power. check out for freelander needs.
