Wading issues.


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

I have a 2003 Discovery TD5 which I have owned for a few months. In that time I have taken it off road quite a bit but have found that when driving through water of maybe no more than 8 inches or so at fairly low speed the engine seems to splutter afterwards when you put your foot hard down if pulling away from a junction for example. Its the same sort of thing you get when a petrol engine car gets a wet distributor and starts spluttering. It clears after a while but I'm sure a vehicle like this shouldn't suffer from going through fairly shallow water. I am going to put a snorkel on the disco but I dont know that this will definately solve the problem. If water was getting to the air intake surely the problem would be more serious than spluttering for a while. What does anyone think?
