      PS I nearly came up to Newquay for the remap, can't remember their name now, the big one up there. Heard a few mixed reviews of them, but in the end they cancelled all bookings (i was booked in and one day to go) when Covid stuff started, so I sent my ECU to Dynachip instead. Wish I hadn't!

      Hi Nodge. I thought I would reach out to you directly here. We are going to open up the engine again for lack of trouble shooting options known to local mechanics. Is there away I could reach out for more active help from you during the next week. Would really appreciate your help. BR/Haroon

      Hi nodge I’m having trouble with my abs pump (l series freelander 2000) I am unable to find decent freelander abs pump but I found that discovery 2 pump looks like the same so can I know that it will be a direct fit for the freelander?

      Hi Nodge, Could you answer one more question re tyres.. I want to go slightly larger maybe 225/70/16 or 215/70/16 would these tyres fit without having to alter the vehicle at all? cheers Mudinuri

      Hi Mate, seen as though You answer most questions posted here I decided to ask You direct hope You don't mind.
      My TD4 FL1 2006 freestyle temp gauge shows only 1/4 warm so I suspect the thermostat needs changing, why is it regarded as such a hard job as I can only see 5 torx type bolts holding the housing cap on is that it! is it as difficult a job as some make out to change ?
      Thanks in advance of Your answer, Alan.

      Sorry to be a pain but could you please give me some info. On the last MOT on my 2003 TD4 Auto I had 2 advisories regarding the Offside and Nearside Anti Roll Bar Linkeage Dust Covers. Are they easy to fit? And how would I go about doing it? I don"t have a garage so I will have to use the jack supplied with the car and then axle stands. Any help would really be appreciated.

      Hi, when you fit your £25 MAF I would suggest that you swap the clips from the original. New clips are weak and fall off when you fit them !! I've just done 500 miles on the weekend with my new MAF and not a foot wrong !

      Hi, Having read the post below, and seeing the V6 logo, I guess you have one.
      I have a freelander 2.5 V6I on a 51 plate, with what seems to be the same issues as below.
      A couple of weeks ago, while doing the normal oil and water check, I noticed it was low on oil, and had no water. I topped up the oil and filled up with water and now have problems with the water side of things.
      1. temp gauge stays at normal all day long, but now on tick over seems to (after about an hour) bubble in the expansion tank as if one of the gaskets has gone.
      2. on checking over cooling system feel that I have bled the air out but still have bubbles in tank. But checking today noticed heat in the top end of the rad but bottom end of rad was cold.
      Looking on this forum and good old google, pointing towards radiator or stat, or are these a false indication and it is the head that has gone??
      In driving, it will go all day with temp at normal.....Please can you help or advise me as to where I go from here :)

      hey i have a question, i just have to be sure...
      i've just replaced my waterpump and thermostat, and radiator...
      After i;ve changed the water pump the car sounded good... then i noticed that the hoses build up pressure, kinda like a block in the system, hence i flushed it, and still over heats about 8miins holding accelerator on 1200rpm,,,, i noticed that the heatercore hoses are cool, not hot like the lower radiator hose, and the upper radiator hose is somewhat cool not hot... the car also doesnt have heat... but blows... and at this point itsappears to overheat. :(
      p.s. the very frist day after the latest fix (waterpump) the vents blew smoke,,,, indication of heater core prob..... but after a camshaft cap replace, it stopped... now just over heats please help..
