2005 Land Rover Freelander ProblemsRattling noise from worn timing belt rollers
The engine air filter should be inspected more often on vehicles that are driven frequently off-road or in dusty conditions. A contaminated mass air flow sensor can cause Check Engine Light illumination.
The automatic transmission may develop a problem with gear slippage because of worn clutch packs inside the transmission. Overhaul or replacement of the transmission will be necessary to correct this issue.
