I am completely sure that it is a rollover warning label. (source: c-suvs.com) It is an official symbol, at least in the US, and it became required by the NHTSA on SUVs around 1999. From the LA Times, for example, March 1999 (emphasis mine) (archive): The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will direct auto makers to post a graphic new ...

There are two kinds of coolant long life and conventional. Conventional coolant uses silicate salts as a "preservative" per se. They help to reduce corrosion and what not. Long life coolant uses organic acid to do the same thing. The organic acid lasts longer than the silicate salts. Mixing the two kinds of coolant is not recommended. Adding long life ...

Leaving the car jacked for a long time is very risky: remember jacks are designed with systems for lifting and lowering a load. Some use hydraulics, other a screw type system but all of them works under a lot of stress because the huge load they need to handle. They should be solely used only for lifting, then use a jack stand to do the load support job. ...

There's a difference between a jack and a jack stand. I've left vehicles on jack stands for days, even weeks, but a jack, regardless of type, is prone to failure: they are designed to raise and lower, not to hold. A jack stand on the other hand is a solid piece of metal and is designed to hold. If you don't have jack stands, I strongly recommend you ...

The turbo on the Discovery 3&4 CAN be removed without removing the body, anyone telling you otherwise are simply not a skilled mechanic or are trying to rip you off by charging you for loads and loads more hours. How do I know? I've done a few and cannot see why you would remove the body. Now it's not a job for the faint hearted and you require a car ...

I'm pretty sure this symbol is suggesting there is a roll over hazard with the vehicle. The sticker you have shown seems to be the one on the back of the visor. It has to be one of the most useless stickers ever seen, due to the fact it spends 99% of it's adult life hidden next to the roof of the vehicle. The center image would suggest not to go around ...

Troubleshooting: Pull out the rubber seal between the indicator stalk and the housing for the steering column and stalks. If this fixes the problem that means that the rubber is pulling down the indicator stalk when indicating right, and when the click from the latching mechanism vibrates the stalk it wiggles loose. The fix for this is to bend the arm of ...

All three - front, back and transfer box/centre diff. As it's a permanent 4WD system, all three diffs are in constant use, so if you've got no record of them being changed, it's probably worth doing all of them. Saying that, what does the service schedule recommend? I can't remember if the Discovery 3 still has traditional 'swivels' on the front axle, but ...

According to this site, this is a "lost connection" issue with "Seat Control Module A." Find the location of the control module, make sure it's plugged in and that there's no corrosion at the connector.

From what I'm reading on various Land Rover forums, the dealer-recommended fluid, Texaco Cold Climate Fluid #14315, is a mineral-oil based fluid. Since this fluid is/was difficult to obtain, many of the posts are stating that a Dexron III compatible non-synthetic ATF should work fine as long as ambient temperatures in the area don't dip below -20°C (-4&...

Yes, it is possible to swap the pins on the female connectors. You must be very careful not to break the little plastic tooth that holds the metal pin in the connector. First, carefully pry out the white socket cover from the inside of the connector with a flathead screwdriver. This will expose the four pins and the tiny plastic tooth that latches into a ...

The plate is based on the date of first registration of the vehicle. Point to note, before a vehicle is registered it is classed as goods and moving brand new un-registered cars on a truck with trade plates is not allowed - this was first prosecuted in Canterbury iirc...

I would go to a scrap yard and find those connectors on a scrap vehicle and make up a "crossing" adapter to fit between these O2 sensors and the vehicle connector. The cheaper ones, apparently have a short life and you may want to purchase the OEM ones in the future - because the clips and bits go brittle over time...

There seems to be a couple of common things with the Puma that cause a non start. Fuel Pressure Relief Valve which is on the high pressure pump Fuel Metering solenoid which is on the fuel rail Immobiliser if fitted Using live data on a diagnostic tool will point you in the right direction with the above.

Having had several land rovers, if your jack is under the spring plate then it should be fine and not slip. If you have a couple of solid blocks then put them under the axle as well and lower down to the blocks to take the load off the jack.

I found this resource by searching on the terms "u0208 land rover." The linked document provides a step-by-step troubleshooting procedure. Try working through it and post a more specific question if you get stuck. Somethings to keep in mind / look for: Assume that it is a single problem until you've exhausted that option. Check the fuse. Look for corroded ...
