1999 Land Rover Discovery Problems
A Coolant leak under the middle of the vehicle can be caused by a leaking throttle body deicer. Coolant travels down the engine towards the rear before dripping to the ground.
Low coolant levels can be caused by leaking head gaskets and/or failed cylinder liners. Misfires or engine performance issues usually accompany these problems.
A sticking windshield wiper switch can cause a delay in wiper operation, especially in cold weather.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to a defective EVAP leak detection pump or defective a oxygen sensor.
