Did you bleed the cooling system - that's usually why level drops at "Fill tank". It's not an overflow reservoir, coolant actually circulates through the tank. I would pressure test the cooling system, maybe intake is leaking or there's a crack in block. (Note: these motors are sleeved and have been known to have sleeves drop) - here for your ref: download this service manual - "RAVE" (Rover Bible)

1997 Land Rover Discovery--Overheats right away . Someone HELPED me by putting black pepper in coolant to stop leak. That worked, but now it overheats

Black pepper? This blocks some of water channels in the engine as well as the thermostat, flash the system, repair the leak. unless you want to get your head gasket gone.

Losing antifreeze, but I see no leakage on the

If you are loosing radiator water/antifreeze and you see 'white' smoke out of your exhaust then it is likely that you are seeing steam: this usually indicates that you have a blown cylinder head gasket or have a cracked ylinder head: both situation will cause overheating of your engine. You can also check this situation by waiting until the engine is COLD, opening the radiator cap, refill with clean radiator fluid/water, restart the engine and see if the water as seen in the radiator is violently bubbling. Another condition before even starting the car again is if you see oil/white-brown staining in the radiator fluid caused by cracked cylinder head or gaskets letting engine oil in the radiator circuit. In any case, it is a critical sitation and you should get it checked and fixed immediately.
Hope it helps and please let me know if I have assessed the correct situation.

I have a 2002 Land Rover Discovery and the car feels like it is having difficult accelorating, and feels like it is jerking and putting. I have a full tank of gas, and recently had the oil changed, but did...

if it's sluggish and bucking and there may or may not be a check engine light on, it's probably in need of spark plugs, wires, and / or ignition coil packs. also if it overheated, it may have blown the a head gasket or two. at least take it to a good land rover dealer and have a multi point inspection done. ive worked on a lot of discos where theyve needed a water pump, head gaskets, throttle heater and gasket, new coolant lines, front main seal, just for starters.... most just get a complete engine reseal where we take the entire engine out and put all new gaskets in it. at least a $2,000 job for the customer. it may be time to look for a good deal on it as a trade in.

98 V8 petrol was spewing out water from radiator (but not all the time).We flushed radiator and now wont start at all.It sounds like it trying to start but just won't turn over. What could it be?

this sounds like you might have a blown head gasket. there has to be a reason that excessive pressure was introduced to the cooling system. i would run a compression test and im certain youll find a couple of cylinders low.
