Land Rover Recalls 2000-2003 Discovery Due to Hydraulic Fluid Leak at Active Cornering Pump

A banjo bolt at the Active Cornering Enhancement (ACE) pump joint may leak, which may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will inspect the pump area for leakage, retorque the bolt if no leaks are found, and replace the bolt if leaks are found.

The Throttle May Stick Open

The engine throttle can stick intermittently during its operation. The exact point of sticking is not predictable and can result in a higher than expected engine speed. If this is encountered, the driver may experience difficulty bringing the vehicle to a stop, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the throttle body to correct this concern. The Land Rover recall number is D117/B150.
