    Testbook is the LR diagnostic computer,22,000m is fine to have a failed injector - I diagnosed one 2 weeks ago that had been replaced less than a year ago.It was replaced under LR warranty.

    Many independant 4x4 or LR specialists have testbook so maybe worth finding one local and seeing what they will charge to have a look, no doubt will be cheaper than LR dealer.

    There is also a good chance that they will be cheaper for carrying out the work too so maybe try and negotiate a discount on the testbook scan if you get the work completed there.

    Or, once diagnosed a local diesel specialist may be able to do the injector(s) cheaper.
