    Hi Everyone sorry if this topic has been covered but i cant seem to find the answer I am looking for.

    I own a (04) Land Rover Freelander 2.0 TD4 and I have started to notice that when I am Driving along I Suddenly lose a little power. Its as if I am running out of Fuel but I am able to accelerate out of it and then it returns to normal as the lose of power only lasts a second of two. I was advised to look at the Turbo Inlet hose to see if it has split and it has not. I did notice that it was flat and a little flexible and remains this way if the engine is running or not. I get no smoke out the back and it is free of any dirt,oil or grease. I have also noticed that behind the engine their is a small rubber pipe with a White Filter attached to it just hanging loose. The filter has 2 connections for the pipes but only one pipe attached and I cant see where the other one would be if any.

    Again Sorry if this topic has been talked about but any advise would be great.

    That's the filter for your turbo actuator, only has one pipe as other end is for fresh air.

    i would second that, when I first got my freelander I noticed that filter and presumed the same but as James said one end is left open to the air. I just cable tied the filter so it wasnt flapping around.

    You state that the turbo inlet hose is flat when the engine is running or not. I would fit new turbo intercooler hoses, preferably silicone, as the originals become spongy and can cause the problem you are experiencing. Plenty of info if you use the search button as this is a common problem.

    Hi , you need to make sure the basic service items are done , engine oil/filter , airfilter , crankcase breather filter , fuel filter (located in the drivers side rear wheel arch) , all covered on here then its a process of elimination
