#1 of 20 transmission woes, I think?
Feb 22, 2006 (6:44 pm)
I have a 1997 Land Rover Discovery with 69,534 miles on it. I just got it about a month ago. I was driving home and I was going up a hill and the vehicle started to rumble a little as the vehicle began to slow down. I pressed the gas a little more and the car was bucking lightly. The RPM guauge was revving really high, so I pulled over, tried to put in 4 wheel drive to help it along and nothing. I shut the vehicle off for about 1-2 minutes. Started it back up again and put it in 'drive' and it ran fine for about 2 miles and started to slow down again. I stopped for about a minute or so, started the vehicle again and it ran for another mile or so. I repeated this til I got home.
I am hoping that the transmission is still good and this is a minor problem. My gut feeling is that the torque converter has gone bad. Big Money!
I need some input on this, please!
#3 of 20 Disco 96 anti-lock light

I have a 96 Disco with 144,000 miles on it. It is perfect in EVERY way- and I have had absolutely no trouble with it. I have done only regular maintainence. However at about 75,000 the anti-lock brake light came on. I took it to the service center (I use a Land Rover only service center, but not the dealer) and was told that it is a common problem with LR and not to worry about it. Should I be concerned?
#4 of 20 Sport, Manuel mode transmission problems
Apr 08, 2006 (2:45 pm)
I started my 2002 Land Rover Disco up Thursday and the Sport mode and Manuel mode lights started blinking simultaneously. When I excelled, it felt as if the my automatic transmission lost power. Moreover, I was unable to get my key out of the ignition until I unconnected the battery. What's up? My local Land Rover dealer said itís probably the transmission and it may cost as much as $8,000.00. You can keep the car at that cost.
#5 of 20 THUMPING NOISE AT SLOW ACCELERATION
Apr 09, 2006 (4:44 am)
I own a 2004 Range rover HSE. I have had a problem since I bought it but no one has properly diagnosed it. It appears to be a resistance noise, like a short thump at acceleration between 0 and 5 miles per hour. It feels like a dragging noise, perhaps like the brakes are holding the discs for a short second. At times you can even feel it slightly through the front floorboard.
I have been diagnosed from brakes which I replaced to transmission to trans box to no avail. Of course the dealer does not hear it, only every one else.

What was the final deal with this problem? Mine is having very similar problems (2001 Disco) and my local mechanic is stumped. Not looking forward to the trip to the dealer...
