Hi folks, I am not a mechanic, but bought a 2003 Land Rover Discovery Se for some remote camping, but - avoiding all the background - quarantine and lock down fate prevented me from getting maintenance and it was driven by a family member resulting in an engine failure. It had sat unused for 3 months and I ironically had come back to pick it up, do maintenance etc. I was not the driver so can't speak first hand, but it seemed there was a strange noise (tapping or clicking) while driving then the engine died. That's when the white steam (and possibly smoke, drying coolant?) was spotted billowing out the sides. The temperature gauge was low the whole time. When I arrived on the scene an hour later, things had cooled, and I found the oil OK, but coolant was empty. I added 3L of water and after it circulated each time it would hiss and steam up at the thermostat housing. The engine turned with the ignition, but would not engage at all. It sounds like there is spark, but no ignition. I got a tow. Now parked up waiting for a mechanic to take a look Monday. 1. Manual Mode and Sport Mode are both flashing = bad. 2. Check Engine is illuminated = bad. 3. Low Oil Pressure illuminated = bad. 4. Temp overheat light illuminated = bad. I'd like to ask those of you who may know whether you have some idea of what the cause might be - based on probabilities. I'll come back once I have a professional look at it, but my concern is that I am at the mercy of the mechanic who could easy fleece me (the Noob!) on this. Thanks in advance!!

Took the 90 over to a friends who lives opposite the mot centre where its going in for its mot tomorrow. On the way there the fuse to the brake lights and indicators blew... fixed that and off we go again arrive ok and running fine. Final check of lights etc, no hazzards... trip to local bits shop.. relay replaced..relay blows...replace relay with second relay bought at same time just in case. The hazzards now work and indicators work but no tell tale flashing in cab and switch gets rather warm. Surrendered to fate and have left a note for MOT tester to "just fix what ever needs doing" So has anyone else had this kind of thing and would it be expensive...gulp Cheers A very demoralised James
