Re: Spluttering at low revs

500 ppm diesel is not a problem. Drain a little diesel out of the diesel filter to ensure there is no water . Possibly accelerator potentiometers. A diagnostic computer will ID this. Alternatively a strong spray of Q20 or similar into the pot box at the accelerator has helped in at least one case I ...

Re: Onreëlmatige sluk - Defender Td5

Dave, is the MAF that simple electric plug connection on the turbo pipe close to the air cleaner? I don't want to disconnect the wrong thing! Yip. I think you have the right one. There is a little clip that must be removed before the plug is pulled out. Dont lose the clip... The car should run quit...

Re: Wheel size

I assume that "touching the suspension" means the tyre on full lock is rubbing up against the radius arm ? Not a big problem - two minutes with a spanner under the right hand side will allow you to screw the steering stop bolt out a turn or two, as suggested by Naks. I dont think that trim...

Re: Onreëlmatige sluk - Defender Td5

MAF ? Disconnect the MAF , and run it for a few days . I once had intermittent power loss on my TD5 - turned out to be poor contact between the MAF and the loom plug . I twisted the terminals slightly and this fixed the problem. Naks might also be correct with his suggestion of fuel pump blockage.. ...

Re: Landy conversion

Hi Riaan I believe that quite a few Defenders have been fitted with a Lexus V8 . My own personal view is that it is an interesting conversion and could be fun as a hobby. But I dont think that " conversion" and " reliability " belong in the same sentence . You will spend years mo...

Re: Discovery 4 SDV6 S

Ensure that the car is good... have an expert Landy man check it out. Yes - the Disco does have some issues - but the big majority of owners are very happy. My daughter has owned one for three years and her husband has recently bought one , so they are now a 2 Disco and a Defender family. They are f...

Re: Help? Kitting out a Defender

Some good points Naks. I personally identify with the suggestion that weight is a big enemy... Dont try to take everything - if you do take too much you will find that it is not enough... you will require many spares because of the resulting breakdowns.. A simple rule I have is that when overlanding...

Re: Disco II Air Suspension issues

Typical of an airbag leak. Raise the suspension to full height , make a solution of dishwash liquid , paint this over the bags , airlines and compressor connections . Tell tale bubbles are your guide : the bubbles might take a while (15 mins to form). If it is airbag related you can try using tyre s...
