    So i currently own a Disco2 on a 2000 plate td5 manual. 110k miles currently (owned 2 years)
    My previous was a Disco1 on a 1996 plate 300tdi manual. (owned 11 years)
    I do my own servicing and things (except welding) but mainly my background is in electrical fault finding.
    So im based in the central belt of Scotland. (about 15 miles out of Glasgow).
    I have other cars and motorbikes that i service too!
    Mainly got a Disco to ferry the family around in snow and bad weather (not for off roading.)
    And then got bitten by the Landrover bug, and couldn't be without one now.
    If i feel down, then driving my disco always puts a smile on my face if you get me.
    I do have a problem on my Disco that i'm going to reserch on the forum for,.. its that my gear shift becomes difficult to move if ive been in 5th Gear on the motorway for half hour or so and the need to change down to 4th.. it doesn't move in the "gate" when you bring it out of 5th gear it just kinda sits there? its seems to be ok if you leave the car for a few hours, changes faultlessly (always has previously) .
    if you can piont me in the right direction that would be brill.
    Thanks Steve

    Just before you move to the Discovery section.
    I'd go for a gearbox and transfer box oil change to begin with then take it from there!

    Cheers Stanleysteamer.
    Didn't want to pop too much info on the intro bit.:)
    Checked the gearbox level that was ok and all the oils in everything were replaced when i bought the disco as a "precaution" at 103k now on 110K.
    I didn't check the transfer box level so i will that next ;)

    Welcome Aboard :)

    The R380 is a good gb, for a manual ;), but at that mileage it would benefit from a flush IMHO - ATF is my choice on such occasions...I've also found some 380's like ATF, and some like MTF, so o_O

    Synthetic gear oil, of the correct grade is worthwhile IME - our 2 D1's have benefited from it..

    If a flush and change doesn't "fix" it, then the bias springs might need adjusting or replacing..
