1999 Discovery 2 V8 4ltr is experiencing 'TOTAL' lack of power even in first gear and on inclines ??? In essence, there is NO power upon excelleration
total lack of 'power' when trying to excellerate even in first gear and especially on hils & inclines
My first thought is that the timing chain is loose and has jumped a link. I had a V8 Jeep that did that.
four GI's in a Jumpin' Jeep~ These V8 engines aren't too much different than an ordinary GM mill from what I've been told...also been told that an Oldsmobile engine and transmission are a 'bolt-in' retrofit for these...Land Rover gets a bad rap...probably earned it as the reputation of British engineering hits home. How could this be? are there like a ton of miles on this mill? wouldn't you start hearing the engine sounding like a can of marbles? we need an inspection to see of all is right stateside. THECOUNT---one, hahahahha~
Check for vacuum leaks and get the fault codes read, that should be a start. Personally I'm thinking fuel problem (pressure or flow), most likely culprits would be pressure regulator and pump. If not that, the MAF sensor might have packed in...
Did you ever discover the problem? Mine is doing the same thing!
