I am getting a intermitent misfire at 4-4500rpm from my TD6, I have done some searches but they relate to the V8s nothing for diesel.

Has anyone had anything similar?

thanks

I can't offer any advice I'm afraid, but a Compression Ignition engine can not have a misfire as such so in all likelihood it could be either an injection or compression problem .

The car struggled to start the other day but fired eventually.

This happen before a while back and land rover assist diagnosed it as the primary fuel pump.

I wonder if it is the pump? The car revs ok when stationary and in neutral.

Sounds like a low pressure problem. Only way to find out is to get it tested. Stationary and reving its not under load and as such requires less fuel.

I wondered if it was the primary fuel pump too.

I have checked the fuel pump accessed from the panel beneath the fuel tank. It was a bit muddy in there, I checked the multi plug was secure and a good contact.

I have a list of problems building up so I feel its time to get it into the dealer, the lower ball joints sound knackered, the rear wiper motor is out of action, rear parking sensors playing up and its over due a gear box oil change,coolant and brake fluid change too.

You need a good independent Land Rover specialist not a Main Dealer/Stealer...

I have struggled to find a good L322 specialist in the East Mids. Whilst I have used one for the RR classic I got impression they were nt too familiar with the L322 when I quizzed them on some issues, I don't want them learning their way round on mine. I am sure they could do the ball joints and servicing but not the more electrical/computer faults.

The supplying dealer has always discounted repairs and servicing costs well, not charged for small stuff and offered e-mail support on a number of issues.
