Yes, from the workshop manual, the 1.8 litre K-Series engine
Firing order is 1 - 3 - 4 - 2

Download a copy of the RAVE CD off the 'Net and you'll have all the workshop manuals, owner's manual, electrical diagrams, etc.

SOURCE: my land rover discovery is stuck in 4 wheel drive,

The discovery is as previously mentioned permanent four wheel drive.However the difflock/range lever in most suffers from lack of use and siezes all i had to do when i bought mine was plenty of WD40 and patience as i don't think it had been in low range or difflock from the day it was built.don't try to force it just spray it and let it soak then try keep doing this and it should free up if not it may be the selector grubscrew has worked loose just threadlock it and screw it back in.

SOURCE: 1996 land rover discovery intake manifold gasket

oil from the pcv valve going into your intake manifold will cause a gasket to swell. but it should not be to the point where it's noticeable. you should probably replace the intake manifold gasket at this point.

You'll have to call the dealer have them pull the VIN to see if you have the latest and greatest software. Also you can check on the land rover website under owners put in the last 8 digits of your vin number and it will tell you if the BB8900 is fully compatible.

    Locate the drive-belt tensioner pulley (this pulley does not drive any accessory on the engine but provides tension to the belt). If the pulley has a recessed squared in the middle, use a 1/2-inch drive-breaker bar to pivot the pulley toward the center of the engine, then slide the drive belt from under the pulley. Carefully release the tensioner pulley. On other models, the tensioner pulley comes with adjusting and pivot bolts. Use a wrench or ratchet and socket to loosen the bolts and release the belt tension. Other tensioner pulleys come equipped with a third bolt to prevent the adjusting bolt from sliding and releasing the belt tension. Loosen this bolt if necessary. On other vehicle models without a tensioner pulley, it is necessary to loosen the alternator mounting and adjusting bolts to release the belt tension using a wrench or ratchet and socket.

    Slide the drive belt off the alternator pulley, but leave the belt properly mounted on the rest of the accessory pulleys on the engine.

    Remove the two alternator mounting bolts using a wrench or ratchet and socket. Move the alternator away from the engine just enough to unplug the alternator electrical connector and wire, then lift the alternator off the engine.

    Set the new alternator in place. Plug the alternator electrical connector and install the electrical wire. Install the two mounting bolts and torque them to 18 foot-lbs., using a torque wrench (see Tips for more information).

    Slide the drive belt over the alternator pulley. Depending on the belt-tension system on your vehicle, either: (1) slide the belt over the idler pulley after pivoting the pulley with the breaker bar, then carefully release the tensioner; or (2) adjust the pulley locking and adjusting bolts; or (3) push the alternator away from the engine using a pry bar to provide the necessary tension to the drive belt and tighten the alternator-mounting bolts. Double-check to make sure the belt is properly seated over the pulleys ribs.

    My 2000 land rover discovery 2 sd model will not engage into 4 wheel drive and the engaging handle has no pressure at all?

    Your DII is (always) in 4 wheel drive. There is NO 2x wheel drive option on a DII, it's always in 4x4 high, or low. To select 4-wheel drive low, put your transmission in neutral and pull down the high low gear selector.

    No 4 weel drive

    Put it neutral and then hit the button for 4 Wheel drive. It should work then and do the same to take it off 4 wheel drive.

    Connect four wheel drive for a freelander land rover 2005

    The Freelander, along with all Land Rovers are permanently in 4 wheel drive: You need to take the car to a workshop to see what is happening. Freelanders have big problems with the transfer box, this maybe the problem. When you reverse the car and put the car steering to full lock whilst reversing, do you feel that the car is blocking or binding, as though you have the brakes on. If so this is an indication that the transfer box is faulty. These boxes cannot be repaired, replacement only and are quite expensive.
    Hope this helps
