there is a possible fix short term/long term which is to re silicone up the offending wire connection hole, i have done this today

for any landy folks who face this problem here is the problem

remove the rocker cover, remove the electrics connections from the injectors, the plug has a pin missing, also the loom connector has a hole, oil can just pass straight down this hole!

sikoflex up the holes as shown and clean up all the other connectors

this might buy me a few days but still going for a new loom i think if i can

Td5 performance

Td5,s can go quick, block off the egr valve, fit a straight thro' centre box replacement pipe, k&n panel filter and Van Aaken chip and watch it fly. Dealer serviced and NO troubles, no oil leaks nothing, best car I have ever had, tows my RIB like it was not there 29 mpg while towing after mods, out accelerates my sons 1.4 escort easily. Far better than recycled u boats or tokyo tin !!

Rubbish

Why do you guys do it to yourselves, I am not rubbing salt into the wounds,
but this is pure bad quality, bad workmanship, vehicles 6 months old should not have issues like this, How do they keep those old Landys going on Heartbeat on tv.
I hope you get this sorted, right when you depend on a vehicle it behaves like this

Cods I have to give you ten out of ten for loyalty, loyalty to a brand like Landy , you always defend them even when the faults are so embarrassing.
What must have went on in the Landy design office, Id say the cleaners coming in an out even had a hand in the design

leave Landys alone

Gavin, there are good and bad ones wherever you go, mine has been faultless, yet some one I know who has a HA HA Honda has been plagued with faults, back Britain, what do you run, some foreign tin and plastic??

I think another forum member tows his Southern Cross 4.5 with a Fiat Punto!

The Honda's are very good cars with extremely sweet engines and ulitmate relaibility. The Jap 4x4s are undoubtably much more reliable that Landrovers and some of Landrovers quality is truley appalling. But people buy Landrovers because they have character, and are the 4x4. If someone sees a large 4x4 and doesn't know what make it is, its steriotypically referred to a 'Land Rover'. Buy a Landrover its inevitably going to go wrong, but rather that than be seen driving a eurobox. I drive a Volkswagen by the way 16yrs old and never gone wrong

Beats me why anyone would want a pre-3 Disco and from what I read in 'Which' last night the 3 is giving plenty of 'teething' probs. I've driven a few 2's and just don't think that they cut the mustard. I also drive a LWB 3.2 DID Shogun on a regular basis which I consider very mediocre also. The engine power and refinement are poor, the handling and brakes also don't fill one with confidence.

Land Rovers

Well guys, this is my second Disco, the first being 200 Tdi which I sold with 100,000 on the clock, all trouble free with nothing more than regular servicing, ok it clonked the trim squeaked, but it always stopped and started reliably. The Disco 2 is a vast improvment and with the mods mentioned earlier (van aaken chip,k&N panel filter,,egr valve closed and centre box removal and replaced with straight thro section) it is stunning. The sound is like nothing else ( pleasantly louder) and performance excellent. Fuel is about 25-32 mpg, cornering with A.C.E is done with no body roll. I have had nothing but 100% reliability so what can I say. my father had a Daihatsu...awful,my friend had the awfull non starting Honda and a work colleague had a fall apart shogun. I'm happy and do not want to change to any thing else. They all purchased Disco's now and are also happy !!!
