  1. Hi all, I finally connected a boost gauge to my ( discovery) 200 tdi in my 2a, at 60 in 5th ( LT77 on series 3 transfer case) I have 11psi and if I floor it the maximum reached is 16psi before it drops back , I would like to know if this is about right? Gauge is a cheap 2 bar Ebay job not a calibrated one , thanks Angus
  2. Hello! This is my first time posting here and would appreciate your feedback. I own a 2014 Evoque with CPO warranty. Last monday (seven days ago), i realtzed that the car was feeling very sluggish and would not accelerate as it should be. So i took it to the dealership and they told me that they would need to diagnose the vehicle. I asked them for a loaner vehicle for the time being and they informed me that they were out of any loaner vehicles and specifically because i had a walk in appointment it would be difficult for them to give me one. The advisor told me that he would let me know in
  3. Hi, All, I'm looking for advice on a dysfunctional turbo, please. My vehicle is a 1991 110 CSW, originally with a 3.5 V8, but retro-fitted with a 300 Tdi. The turbo had been working perfectly normally for the last N years, but has now developed some kind of fault. I was going up a long hill in 4th gear at about 3000rpm and instead of the boost pressure topping out at 15 – 16psi, as normal, it continued right up to ~20psi, at which pressure I eased off on the throttle. Since then I have been unable to get above ~10psi of boost, regardless of load or rpm. Also, power is signific
  4. Hi there all. My 300tdi got some issue recently, been reading all the threads but none seem to match exactly.. The disco got 180000 on clock, but engine was from a range with less mileage. Has always run well over last 7years. Took it to spain couple of years ago, up the Sierra Nevada 3000m skiing. Was bloody cold! At that point I had semisynthetic GTX oil in to cope with the cold.. on leaving the Sierra a few days parked at sub zero C. It smoked blue like a smoke machine for a little while.. Downhill steep. Totally cleared in 10min. it
  5. Hi Can I ask an easy question and get a quick answer? Hope so... One of the last checks I want to make on my 300 tdi is that the waste gate is opening. I'm planning to fit a pressure gauge so that I can see the boost and if necessary adjust the time that it occurs but I don't have that yet. I firstly thought I'd verify that the gate does in fact open and as I haven't any experience I don't know if my normal driving experience would show this - it probably would if I knew what to look for. So my quick Q is that I have removed the pipe to the FIP and stuck an airline into the fitting that al
  6. 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 bit of DIY, filter check etc. Did a bit of reading up on YouTube/Interweb etc & decided to do the air filter & crankcase filter at the same time. Noticed that there was a bit of oil to the side of the dipstick (indicating a blocked breather) & also a little about some of the hoses (po
  7. Hi, I have a '96 300tdi, its just blown the turbo to bits and there is a huge amount of oil in the intakes. I think it has entered to engine and hydrauliced it. My question is, what is the best way to get the oil out? The engine was working hard and suddenly made LOTS of smoke, I turned it off, but when I tried to start it again the engine tried to turn but wouldn't. don't think its seized, just full of oil. Help!
  8. Had this a while back, over a year ago for sure, but the wastegate spindle seems to be seized solid, performance seemed a bit lacklustre these last few weeks but put it down to barely being driven apart from groceries but a bit of a fettle with plumbing in the boost gauge to see whats going on showed almost nothing happening at all. done the usual, liberal dousing in wd40 slow steady applications of man sized pressure and zip all happening. whats next?
  9. Hi guys, Got a good question for you all. Is it worth it to install a dump valve on my new turbo? Now I know the valve lets off excess pressure so it's gotta help the life of it? But does it have any downsides?? Is it easy to put on and set up properly?
  10. Good day guys, My 2006 FL 1 td4 has developed a strange noise allmost like a Blow off valve when switching gears or letting off the gass under boost. Also when cruising on the highway, as soon as you go over 130km/h or up a hill at about 120km/h it goes into limp mode with the CEL on, but as soon as speed drops, it goes out of limp and the CEL goes off. I do not know if this is related to each other, and I dont have the cash at the moment to take it to the stealers to look for fault codes. I have replaced all the vacuum hoses, and from what I can see, the egr valve is clean. car has been ser
  11. Does anyone know where to get an 02 td4 freelander turbo from?
