      Hi, post the problem on the open forum cos i'm not doing these kind of things in private as i can be wrong and there's nobody to correct me... but if you see the gauge rising from the middle that's the reason for the power loss cos the ECM reduces fueling as it enters overheat protection mode... also the gauge leaves the middle at 120*C which means if it happened not once the injector seals are affected, check the oil if it doesnt smell like diesel... i'm not gonna answer again in private to this issue

      Good day I need your help please. This week I ran out of lucky when my land rover discovery 2 td5 2000 model ran out of diesel, I had to fuel it and it with 10 liters then another 20 liters of diesel at the garage. Then after driving for almost 60 km it started choking and I suspected the fuel filter was blocked so I quickly bought one changed the old one and everything seemed to be back to normal again. The problem started again but this time it was when approaching an incline it would start doing the following:
      [*]The car start vibrating to the extend everyone in the car can feel the shaking
      [*]It loses power on incline you hardly push it over 80km/hr no matter how hard you press the accelerator that does change anything
      [*]The fuel consumption is high
      [*]On incline you can see an increase on the temperature gauge But on a level or flat road you can reach 120km/hr with 2600 revs

      Hi Sierrafery, Thanks for your help on the wastegate thread. I got it sorted in the end.

      Turned out it was the injector seals, must have been causing some sort of blow back through the engine. I had replaced them about 6 months ago, but didnt use genuine parts, Britpart failed again

      Anyway, lesson learned, no more spurios parts for me, they really arent worth it.

      Thanks again,

      Gordy

      Hi there,I noticed a little while ago you mentioned a friend was using a v8 EAT ecu in his TD5 DII. Can you enlighten me as to the changes it brings please ? My own DII TD5 is making plenty of power/torque with a remap,but the gearbox ecu does not seem to want to make best use of what is available.I've done my own research into having the EAT ecu altered and found it to be an expensive route - the v8 ECU would be a far cheaper route if there are improvements to be had...
      Kind regards, Jon.

      Hi, i dont solve technical problems in private, sorry... see you on the open forum, by the way did you plug it in a tester...cos if not that's compulsory for further actions... especially live data...cos you may have an injector issue

      Hi, I'm new as a member to this sight but been viewing for a few yrs with help on other stuff. But my td5 disco is beginning to test me now :( thought you might be able to point me in the right direction because you seem to know your stuff.

      It's got a starting issue! This is what it's had so far
      Injector harness
      Fpr
      Injector seals (twice)
      Starter motor
      Air bleed valve
      Battery tested
      In tank pump (vdo)
      Fuel lines checked with pressure gauge attached an running just over 4 bar.

      In the morning it's a pig to start an the same when I get back in it after work. Or when it's been left for over 30mins it's a pig to start. Sometimes I can run in a shop come out and it takes a few winds then. Everybody tells me get rid but I need to see this through :-/
      Thanks for any help you can offer.

      I may take a look at it in the future. Either sending a signal to the motors or sending a signal to the mirrors ecu. I have a RAVE cd, are the wiring diagrams in there?
