mjjf Posted December 29, 2007 Share Posted December 29, 2007 Hi all, my 2000 td5 disco is starting to misbehave. About 3 weeks ago it started to run really rough, I put this down to bad fuel as I had just fuelled up at a small remote town.In the last week it has started to return intermitantly to a feeling of water in the fuel or a dropped cylinder, pull over stop the car and it may go away. I went and got it plugged into rovacom lite and the chap said that it is probably oil in the computer, that got there from getting into the loom as it passes through the rocker cover and migrating through the copper cores of the wires and into the computer where it causes havoc. He said that it usually takes about 5 years for this to happen and I should replace the part of the loom that passes through the rocker cover, clean the compter with electrical contact cleaner and keep up the contact cleaner on all the terminals for about 3 months. I tried asearch but could not find anything evidently this is quiet a common problem and I thought someone here might have experience of it.
