When my land rover first turns on(in the morning), the service engine soon light blinks, and will not allow me to accelerate it just kind of rolls. After a minute it will go back to normal. Sometimes it will do it ever time I turn it back on, most the time though its just when I first turn it on;waking up the beast I assumed, but its getting worse. I'm not sure if that has something to do with it having problems getting up hills, its barely making up small hills at 30;which is a problem on the interstate.I'm trying to figure out what these two things mean and how can they be fixed!
Do you

Scan for codes and check fuel pressure first.

Troubleshooting: P1300, P1590, P0174, P0300, P0734. I wasn't really sure what all you needed, but I hope that's right. If not let me know.

Doyou or have you recently gone over a rough road kinda fast? That may have either damaged your slabs ecu or shorted wires an dis setting these codes. It says misfire for most of them which if your engine runs smooth then that may be the problem with the slabs ecu. A pro is going to have to try to track this down because it's the self leveling antilock brake ecu so it may the problem for all these codes. It may be because you wen tover rough road to fast and it couldn't keep up with it or there are damaged wires. This shold be looked at immediately due to the one code is saying it is damaging the converter.

When I first got the car a year and a half ago I did, and it kinda was smoking I assumed it was the brakes, but for safe measure I didn't off road again. I'm not really sure where I would go to have someone look at it, not many people no about land rovers where I'm at. Any suggestions?

Any qualified mechanic that has a scanner can look at it as they probably have the same data I do with them. Of course I am assuming you are in the u.S. Just look under repair shops or know someone who has had good luck with car repairs anc call them see if they will take it. You can always print out the reply I sent with the pic larger and show them. They aren't that different

You could try clearing the codes and seeif it straightens out as well if you are off roading with it and see if it straightens out you might be able to go to an auto parts and do it there or if you have one of their type fo scanners do it and see if the codes come back as they may not.
