Land Rover Discovery 2 Spark plug diagram needed.

I reciently helped a friend in replacing all of the spark plugs and wires in her landrover. However we did change them one at a time I just couldn`t be the one removing the wires from the coil due to lack of room! So i`m not sure if anything was switched or not! i am unable to find the schematics for the spark plugs so your my last choice!

If you have not removed any wiring yet,why not draw one out for your use ! You can number the wires,or tape them with masking tape then mark them,and to the cylinders, in order of firing or in front to rear on one bank left or right and to the coil towers with a white marker.or a card board template with numbered positions for the wires to hook up to the correct towers. Or just change them one at a time.

SOURCE: spark plug location on ignition

If you have individual cylinder coil pack, remove the coil pack and the spark plug will be under it. There is a spark plug boot on the bottom of the pack that plugs directly onto the spark plug.

1997 landrover discovery

First let me admit that I haven't worked on a LandRover in years, so I highly recommend that you contact someone that has recent experience.

That being said; it sounds like a throw out bearing failure to me. Although it could be a pressre plate issue, it really doesn't matter since I always recommend that the pressure plate, throw out bearing and clutch plate be replaced at the same time, since a failure of one is an indication the others life span is coming to the end.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, but my LandRover experience was mainly in the 80s and early 90s

it most likely is the coil, but recheck the spark plugs and spark plug wires just in case one of the new wires are touching a hot exhaust manifold..

As I accelerate my 2000 Discovery II Landrover, I get a vibration. It is not all the time, only at certain speeds... Is this a transmission problem or could it be simply spark plug/wire's mis firing? Can...

It may be your tires, either a weight has come off or the belts are starting to seperate. I am sure if you took it to a tire shop they could check them out for you. Usually, if it is a miss fire your engine check light will light. As far as replacing the plugs and wires it is fairly simple as long as you have the right tools and do one at a time it is possible to do it yourself. Hope this helped Tim

Here ya go...try rewiring your distributor and try setting the timing again by these schematics....whichever is applicable to your motor.

Hi there;

It sounds like you have an engine cylinder missfire. The spark plug wires are the most common cause of the issue you are discribing.
I recommend you have the spark plug wires, distributor cap & rotor replaced. If you haven't replaced the spark plugs reciently It would be a good idea as poor plugs can cause the other parts I listed to fail.

Good luck, hope this helps

Service engine light on 2002 mitsubishi galant

it could be the spark plugs, at least that is what it was for mine, if you have over 50k miles without a spark plug change i highly suggest one, also a oil /transmission change would be great for your car too if you haven't done those reciently. I would also suggest using a higher grade gas, sometimes this fixes the trick too.
If you try all those and still experiencing hard transitions please let me know and i'll try a more indepth analysis on your car.
Thanks jyotsna.
