    Exmoor have replied promptly. They have no plans or intentions to make any Freelander 1 seat trim in near future. Apparently Discovery comes next!! We can but try. Probs large business opportunity. Anyone know of other seat trim companies that...

  3. andyfreelandy replied to the thread 54 td4 not starting.

    Fairly common problem!! On your car pump is in rear wheel arch. Plug on top should show 12v on the 2 wires with ignition on. Temporary fix is a smart tap with a hammer on pump body whilst ignition is on. When I did this to mine one pump lasted a...

    Thanks both. Little bit new to me. My MGB don't have one!! Is the trace shown a good O2? Does torque pro produce the waveform or just the data. Need to check it before removal as it looks like a pig to remove!!

    Thanks. Could be sorted then. Maybe swap them back and measure emissions with each before I return for retest.

    It Is sommat to do with the power band provided for the different transmissions but maybe a theory thing!!

    Difference is unclear. My previous TD4 had a mix and now I run an auto with 4 manual injectors!! Seems fine either way but your call!!!

    Further testing reveals....the original sings a high pitch whistle and didn't move with ign cycling until cleaned. The spare sings but also clicks for about 10 secs whilst it finds the position it is happy with! Incidentally ran engine with IACV...

  9. andyfreelandy replied to the thread Ignition fault sometimes.

    Ok. If no voltage then most likely ign switch or bad contact / loose connection. There is a complex immobiliser circuit that uses chip in key. If chip not present then you get ignition lights but no crank. Also when you have checked voltage on...

  10. andyfreelandy replied to the thread Ignition fault sometimes.

    Can you hear starter clicking? If yes then starter solenoid sounds worn out. Change starter or replace solenoid contacts. If no then check voltage at starter small spade terminal when key is in cranking position. Could be ignition switch or immob...

    Jack underneath ball joint forces taper into hub and stops it turning.

    Thanks. Changing it seems to have solved problem, but will energise suspect one. I think I read in another of your responses that the ecu cycles the valve at ignition on so will try that to see if it is really stuck!

  13. andyfreelandy replied to the thread TD4 Aux. Belt change ?.

    Just a question. If the tensioner is on a LH thread and you turn tensioner anti clock to slacken belt then the pulley bolt should be being tightened and not rotate? Only time I unscrewed mine was when I accidentally turned it the wrong way!!

  14. andyfreelandy replied to the thread Freelander 1 1.8 emissions idle test fail - solved.

    Can anyone confirm whether the IACV piston should move without power to valve please? Want to confirm diagnosis! Another way is to false feed suspect valve. One manual diagram shows a motor another shows a solenoid!!

  15. andyfreelandy replied to the thread Freelander 1 Seat trim problems.

    Ok. Have asked Exmoor trim on behalf of all of us to price a F1 and F1 facelift seat cover kit. Have said that when I get info I will survey for interest!! Watch this space. Ready trimmed seats would exceed the cost of our lovely vehicles!! By a...
