  1. its a P reg 300tdi manual. its got a really annoying habit ....... sometimes when i try to start it, i turn the key and nothing happen, the starter just wont work, it seems to happen when ive got no access to tools or a multimeter. Normaly if you leave it half an hour and go back it starts straight away. last night was slightly different because it would start at 18.00 when i went to work, the mrs tried it at 21.00 and still nothing but when i got home this afternoon to have an investigation it fired up instantly. seems to happen if the engine is hot or cold and does this about once a month. really dont know where to start, if it just died i could probably trace the problem, but its difficult when its intermitant. any ideas??
  2. i could........... then possiby pass on to treebloke???
  3. perhaps hes not sorted the correct technique yet, as he said it kept stalling
  4. running on brand new General AT2s....... so a little bit grippy
  5. my mate has a face lift Disco ll...... been really happy until today when he tried to pull a van off a wet playing field. the traction control seemed to be working but it just could get enough grip to move himself and the stuck van....... he felt that his M reg with the difflock engaged would have had no problem what so ever. is this normal?? as its an 03 plate TD5 would it have the diff lock fitted to the transfer box? just minus the lever etc.
  6. thanks, been and changed it today.

  15. watch there are some idiots about....... someone i know went driving this lane, they had problems and breakages. the long and the short of it is that the truck had to left until they could get i recovered. thing was when they went back someone had been at it........ weather they were not ment to be driving it i dont but mindless stuff like this is disgusting.
  16. Basicly what controls a TD5 rev counter? trigger wheel? I have a mate with a VW camper with the 5 cylinder engine and hes looking to fit a rev counter but all the aftermarket ones seem to be 4 6 8 cylinder engine ones. He has a trigger wheel etc if this is how landy ones work. Or any other suggestions?
