RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 1998 Land Rover Discovery based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
A sticking windshield wiper switch can cause a delay in wiper operation, especially in cold weather.
The intake manifold can leak coolant externally, however it is not typically due to a gasket failure. The intake manifold bolts tend to come loose and need to be replaced/updated.
Internal failure of the rear cargo door latch can cause the door to not open when using the outside door handle.
A sticky ignition switch can cause the ignition key to become stuck, and possibly break during operation.
One or more of the power windows may fail due to a worn window regulator. Replacement of the failed regulator should correct this problem.
And exhaust leak may be caused by catalytic converter securing nuts coming loose.
The transfer case can develop a fluid leak from the intermediate shaft and/or the access plates.
Uneven ride height on the vehicle can be caused by leaking air springs.
If a brake light is not working, and the bulb is good, the brake light socket should be inspected because they can burn out.
