Question about 2000 Land Rover Discovery
Posted by Anonymous on
As a Land Rover Tech I can tell you that it is true that there is no filter on the series2 there is a small screen at the bottom of the pump pickup that acts as a filter,If you feel this is clogged you can remove the pump by pulling up the rear cargo area carpet as recommended above then just use break clean to clean the screen.Make sure you replace the pump gasket as a faulty gasket will cause a check engine light and a little trick I use is to put a small amount of vaseline on the gasket to ease installation.Also a quick note on series 1 filters is that the lines usually cease up causing the connections to break or damage when removing.I highly recommend getting the repair kit available at the dealer or rovers north before attempting to replace the filter .
BUT IN REGULAR 2004 lan-drover discovery there is fuel filter located.
Removing the fuel filter
The fuel filter is located on bulk head, to left hand side of the engine.
1: Start by cleaning the area around the filter head.2: Place a container beneath the fuel filter to catch any spillage.3: Loosen the bleed screw using a 10mm spanner4: Unscrew the drain tap on the bottom of the filter until the fuel starts coming out into your the container.5: Once all the fuel is drained from the filter, unscrew the whole filter assembly.
Fitting the new fuel filter 6: Clean the seal & seating on the new filter.7: Put a small amount of fuel around the rubber seal to lubricate it.8: Screw the new filter onto the filter head and tighten by hand.10: Tighten the bleed screw.11: You can now crank the engine until fuel is drawn through the system and the engine starts.Job done!
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

not likely a fuel issue,
try running it in the dark of night , no lighting and look for sparks ,
have the ignition coil tested , be sure it has good ground.
pull each plug and watch the spark ,does it maintain the blue long arc.
tune a am/fm radio to the sparks ignition sound an listen to it
a portable walkman can lead you to the faulty spark,
or just have them monitor the spark at the shop.

Hello trish...you must have a really fancy code scanner because i have never had one tell me that...lol
When you say "mass air flow filter" i assume you mean mass air flow sensor (MAF)? If your check engine light is "flashing" it's telling you there is a more serious problem to be dealt with and you should have it repaired now to prevent additional faults..and possibly costly repairs in the near future.
On your landrover the scanner should read "Manufactured Control Fuel and Air Metering" fault if it's a MAF sensor fault. This fault does NOT always mean the sensor is bad, in most cases the sensor is fine and is doing it's job by reporting to the computer a problem it has detected...
The MAF tells the computer how much air and the temp of the air that the engine is getting.
Then using those readings and the readings from your oxygen sensors and the gear your in, engine speed, engine temp, and the list goes on and on the computer gives the engine the correct amount of fuel for the load it's under.
There are ALOT of variables and if one or more is out of sync it screws everything up...it's like a domino effect..are you with me still?
...After you replaced the sensor...did you rescan the landrover and clear the codes...because if you didn't...the computer still has it stored and nothing has changed? let me know what you find on the next diagnostic scan...that blinking light is not good.
Good luck..i hope this helps ya...please take time to rate me a fixya...
PS: make sure the gas cap is secured properly.
