The car is from Maine and the repair people said the pump was leaking so replaced it. Since then I had had a lot of noise when making turns which I never had before. I took it back but they say the pump is working properly. I noticed a response regarding a TSB to replace the fluid with a cold weather fluid. It is winter here but it fairly warm with tempertures in the 40's. Why does this fuild work better?

is there a recall on thermostat housing on 2002 dicovery

I pulled back the liner in the trunk and removed the two nuts. What needs to be done next?

The L.front seat randomly "lays down". No known association with other actions. It is a programmable seat - is this more likely to be a switch problem, or a control module? Any other ideas? It's disconcerting and dangerous. Any help would be great!

My care has 25,000 miles on it and since November, 2011 I have had the front rotors replaced because they were warped at 24,122 miles. On 12/13/11 Constant grinding noise at 24,958. Then again on 12/19/11 at 25,137 rear drum brakes resurfaced because they were warped. On 12/20/11 one day later At 25,143 rotors out of round, resurfaced and front brakes replaced. And on 1/14/12 at 25,789 had car towed into dealer for loud banging noise--poor maching--replaced front brakes and rotors again. Can anyone tell me what is causing this problem because the damn dealer can't or won't tell me. I am not a brake rider and all the mileage is highway driving. HELP loses power, and as I push on gas- no power, but its still running. I ususally pull over wait for it to cool down. then start it up and it drives fine again... untill it warms up. I started by adding sea foam fuel cleaner. Then cleaned distributor rotor and contact points, changed spark plugs, and wires. (it has 117,000 miles on it. I am not original owner, so I don't know what has been replaced on it)
