there is a valve in one of your heater core lines in the engine bay that controls the flow of the hot engine coolant to the heater core and is controlled by the hot/cold selector on your dash by a cable. have someone watch the valve while you move the selector back and forth from hot to cold and make sure it's moving the arm on the valve.

Best way to get the sequence and torque is from a Chiltons repair manuel. There not cheap so unless you plan on doing a lot of your own repairs in the future I'd go find a copy in the library and write down the info you need. The only time I bought a Chiltons was when I was restoring a classic MG. I believe it was about $50 at the time. You might also try a LR owners club on the internet.

It takes 3 amps to run your ecm, you need to check your power wire to the ecm and ground wire however I do expect you to find the power wire bad or corroded, and that will give you all your faults,I have had this problem before

yes. there is a small weep hole in the snout of the water pump. if you see the coolant coming from there, it's time to replace it. coolant could also be leaking out of the front cover seal. but that would be lower than the water pump. check it well.

Hi this is a common problem with vehicles the age of yours its not a major problem its just a case of getting the starter motor replaced.

The clicking noise you hear is the selanoid on the starter moto not engaging properly.

Its best you change it sooner rather than later as you could find that it wont turn over at all.

If you are ever stuck anywhere and cant get the car to turn over then you can give the starter motor a couple of hard hits with a hammer or something hard this usually gets you out of trouble but get it changed as it would save all the stress of being broken down somewhere.

1. check tie rods and ball joints
Door hinges lift up on the outside of the door up and down if it raises more than a 1/4 inch it is worn out walk away. check transmission fluid. and do a price check at kelly blue book and look up the price private party and whole sale, put in mileage and such. go to and run the vin number and see if it's been in a crash a flood or fire or has been stolen, if it has walk away. ask to road test the car and take to your own mechanic for a vehicle inspection. It can save you thousands of dollars of repairs before you buy.

1590 is not really an "ABS" code per se. It is an ODBII code for a rough road fault that the computer throws when you have an ABS code. You need to get it to a dealer (or someone with a T4, Testbook, Rovacom, Hawkeye, or Nanocom system) for the ABS codes to be read properly.
Odds are? Shuttle valve, Wheel sensor or Wheel Bearing.

Remove the road wheels, clean the exterior of the calipers. Remove the split pin from the retaining pins on either side and then remove the pad retaining pins and anti rattle springs. Remove the brake pads and clean exposed parts of pistons using new brake fluid. Wipe away excess with a lint free cloth. Using a piston clamp, press each piston back into its bore ensuring that the displaced brake fluid does not overflow from reservoir.
Refit the new brake pads, retaining pins and anti-rattle springs, using new split pins to secure them. Apply the service brake pedal several time to locate pads. Check fluid reservoir and top up if necessary using correct grade of fluid.

Guys with questions on brakes scare me. They are the single most important system on any car. On the discovery the caliper must be removed by removing a brake pipe and therefore openeing the hydraulics, If the system is not bled properly, the brakes will be compromised.
