2004 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.

2004 Land Rover Discovery Reviews
Have owned a 2004 SE7 since '05 - purchased used from LR Dealer with 20k miles, now has 76k. In the 6 yrs of ownership, it has been very, very good - although not perfect: loves to drink premium gas, window motors in both front doors needed replaced, moonroof seals are leak prone, and CD 6-pk got stuck & needed repaired. Mechanically, it has been flawless UP UNTIL NOW - coolant has been disappearing (resovoir almost empty after only a month after filling) with no obvious signs of leaks. Little bit of research online yielded Head Gasket Issues as source - which will not be fun to replace. Still, as it's the only Real powertrain issue in 6 yrs of ownership, overall the truck is a tank and has been dependable. My family is safe in it and, of course, it's offroad capabilities are absolutely incredible. Although head gasket repair is not a cheap by any means, we remain very pleased overall with our Disco and look forward to several more years of ownership.
The vehicle is great. HOWEVER...DON"T deal with the dealer if you can avoid it...it will be a nightmare. ALSO, the electrical systems suck..always a problem. Every door lock does not work..all 5doors and NO RECALL. It drive sgreat and handles well in the snow..
