2004 Land Rover Freelander Problems
A hydraulic valve lifter "tick" type noise may be noted at high engine speed. This commonly caused by lack of oil to the lifters. Our technicians recommend following the recommended oil service intervals to help prevent this problem.
If the window motor for the rear cargo door fails, the rear door may not unlatch.
A rattling noise from the right side of the vehicle can be caused by worn timing belt rollers. These tend to fail and should be maintained to avoid serious engine damage.
