CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON HILLS CAR

2003 Land Rover Discovery 3

Engine Performance problem
2003 Land Rover Discovery 3 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

Vehicle is a 2003 Land Rover that has recently been leaking radiator fluid. We have been having issues with the truck on hills. It is VERY sluggish and the check engine light flahses. We had it overheat when a hose blew. We replaced the hose but are still having the climbing issue. What should we do?

Hi there,

Air flow meters are a big problem on these cars, I would start with a scan, you would be best suited to go get one done at a dealer as often generic scanners don't read all Land Rover codes, the check light is an indication that there is a set fault code in the ECU, start here.
