    Sir, I have a question for you regarding the RETURN of the 3 amigos. (no not the movie, sorry couldn't help it).
    I have replaced the Shutter Valve bled the system, cleared codes. Drove to work the next day and on my way home the 3 came back on, is there something I could have missed, or is there another possible reason for the 3 amigos?

    Hey Mike. Greetings from Atlanta. Have not seen anything from you for a long time and hope you are OK.

    Please tell me how to get grease in my new front driveshaft 1999 Disco II. The zerks seem to have a ball bearing blocking the passage of grease. Do I need a special grease gun or do I need to push the ball bearings back for the first use - or what???

    What do you suggest?

    Hi Mike. Quick question. I'll give you a brief history. I had a stuck lifter, spent 3000 to fix it, valve job, new gaskets, new heater core etc.... Been over a year, and I still have a stuck lifter. My mechanic will only cover the parts cost to fix it. Not labor. I cant afford that again. He said he used 7 lifters from one source, and one from another. He is no longer my mechanic...... I tried a bottle of Rislone, and it seemed to help a bit, but in the warmer weather, it's still pretty loud. Do you recommend an ATF Flush ? If so, what is the proper way to do that ? Any other suggestions? Thanks so much. You always have great advice. you can also email me directly at skeletonkeyartglass@yahoo.com

    Hello Disco Mike i have been following your advice here for a long time and now i have an issue that doesn't seem to be an easy solve for me. MY 99 Disco 2 will start just fine and once its warmed up it will not idle by itself. i have to play with the pedal in p or n to keep it running. i believe that there isn't enough rpm's to go once i put it in gear but not sure. And it sounds like my timing is off now as well but not sure what else can cause that. ive replaced the ckps since after a while it would only run once a day really than once it died i would have to wait. now it starts fine again like its been doing for a year now while i drive my car. any thoughts on what i should check?

    Hello Sir, hoping it's ok to message you here.
    2003 Disco II Cranks but no start.
    Has spark and fuel pressure, will start with starting fluid but dies, possible the injectors are not getting a Pulse? Replace crank sensor, and cam sensor.
    I'm stumped.
    Thank you
    Cody

    Mr Mike- JW in CO. 303-378-1020. Compressor problems. 2000 D2, blowing fuses (one in engine bay). Pump won't come on. I've removed it, cleaned it, put back in, same thing. I have a new pump on the way; hopefully this solves? It just won't come on. D2 runs fine otherwise. 88k mi. Thanks mucho in advance!

    Hey, Mike,
    Can you tell me the procedure to clean my idle air control valve? I have cleaned by throttle body and performed the SeaFoam induction. I'm having the same issues as other guys with the rough idle and then random stalls at stop lights. No codes.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hey there Mike,
    I've been looking and can't seem to find a link to forum rules on placing classified ads. Selling my 04 Disco and would like to see if fellow LR aficionados may be interested. Can you help? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Mike I read the enclosed caption,in regard to mpg from way back. My truck is struggling to get 12 avg via my scan guage. with cruise on at 65mph

    See Below:
    I run a 75/140 synthetic in both diffs. and my t/case, I live at nearly 7000 feet so my engine lost a good 30 horse power and I get an easy 18 MPG on the road as long as I stay under 70 MPH, that is with gears, lockers and axles, so it can be done.
    Howski, those tires hurt you a little, at least a MPG, a roof rack can easily take 1.5 MPG.

    My truck is a 2001 D2 set-up the same is yours but with a rack, not re greared approx 146,000 miles. The following are new 02, plugs, wires 8 mm., air filter. All fluids are change and serviced regularly. Truck runs like a champ no codes etc Tires are 32s KM2 with 40 psi.
    What am I missing? Does the MAF need cleaning or replacing? Is there some thing else?
