2002 Land Rover Discovery Problems

Internal failure of the rear cargo door latch can cause the door to not open when using the outside door handle.

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.

2002 Land Rover Discovery Questions

and the car is still running slow. Can you help me . Thank you.

When making a right turn or driving over a rough/bumpy piece of road, the traction control system slows the car down (light comes on the dash board too). Has anyone else experienced this and/or know of the reason and the solution?
Many thanks.

My car was left when I went home for the holidays. Came back and my car was completely dead. The only thing that I can do is unlock and lock it manually. This is my first car so I am worried sick. Waiting on AAA to get here to help but so anxious to know what's going on.
