    Wisping noise

    Hi We have a 05 TD4 Freelander and all of a sudden the engine is making a wisping noise when accelerating - i gather this is turbo related - does it indicate impending failure or just blocked/broke pipes? I've noticed when accelerating the power drops off a little if the accelerator is...

    Turbo Disaster

    Ok so a bit of background.. I got a tidy TD4, new shape freelander1 about 4 months back from a garage, quite high miles, but in great shape body wise. Had been running well upto about 1 month ago, when I noticed a little lag around 40-50mph & a bit of smoke, nothing serious, so though I'd do a...

    2002 Discovery Auto Turbo problem.

    My Discovery has served me well 202500 miles on the same engine etc. Recently developed a 'screaming' sound which I'm told by my Spanish garage is a turbo problem. Cost to replace is over £1000 which is more than the car's worth. Still runs well and screaming sound disappears after 5-10 minutes...

    Expired Freelander TD4 Turbo Hose

    Hi, I've got a never-been-used turbo hose for sale. Part number: PNH500190G This is the part: http://britishparts.co.uk/products/9408-hose-turbo-PNH500190G This is the later version that supersedes the ones that used to perish. Would take £30 plus postage? Cheers :)

    200/300 Tdi turbo replacement

    I need to replace the turbo on my 200tdi Defender. Is here any replacement that will be a straight fit int? What options do I have, maybe by buying a replacement from a scrap yard? Also, I have the same problem with a 300 tdi so same questions apply. Thanks and regards to all!

    Disco 2 Turbo Oil Feed Question

    I have fitted a new turbo to my Disco 2 TD5 and would like to prove the oil feed to it is working. How can I crank the engine without starting it? I would like to see oil coming out of the feed as the engine is cranked but not start the engine with the feed disconnected. I have tried removing...

    Running out of steam

    Just returned from touring with the caravan (1.6T all up) and the Disco (S2 2003 Auto) appears to have developed a power problem somewhere along the way. It's happy to zip along the straight and level at 60mph with a bit in reserve for overtaking but has nothing left to cope with gradients...

    FREELANDER 1 AUTO TD4 no power on uphill climbs

    This is my first post and I have had some fun trying to sort out my auto TD4 performance issues. I have just replaced the MAF sensor with a Meat&Doria part to replace the original Bosch sensor (F 00C 2G2 029). Car is running a lot better than before when it would hesitate on take off and...

    HI all, 2006 Freelander 1 TD4, 134,000 miles, loss of power, smoke on throttle on, and smoke from between the two halves on the turbo.

    Turbo screaming

    Hi to all, Vehicle is Defender 200Tdi - engines I think in good condition, uses no oil or water, starts well, no smoke etc. I recently discovered that the rubber pipe connecting the turbo to the metal tube going to the intercooler was split. I taped it up pending arrival of new pipe. On...

    Turbo Problems in Africa - HELP!

    So, I'm currently coming to the end of an overland trip from London to Cape Town in a 110 300tdi. It must be said we've had our fair share of problems along the way - not helped by some rather dubious Ethiopian mechanics. Anyway, turbo started making squeeling when under load in Ethiopia...

    200tdi t28 turbo upgrade

    I've seen many people mention the the fitment of a garrett t28 turbo to their 200tdi, but here at so many different turbo a/r 's, turbine and compressor sizes. so which one/s are the best for low speed, cruising and flat out operations?

    Diagnosing a whining noise

    A couple months ago, I had my 200tdi turbo rebuilt. I had a turbo specialist do the actual rebuild, but I used a new shop I hadn't used before to remove and refit the turbo. The shop didn't think it necessary to test drive the car after fitting the turbo, and after picking up the vehicle, I...

    To chip or not to chip (the turbo)?

    Hi, Got a face-lift Freelander TD4. It's pulling a 4 berth caravan and it's for the most part effortless but hills do present a problem if they go on for too long. Would 'chipping' it be any help? I'm hearing 50% increases in torque and HP. Any owners out there to verify? It's got...
