Question From Guest on wondering why the brakes are wearing at low mileage
I own a 2005 Land Rover LR3 with 17,000 miles and i just had an inspection done at the dealer and they told me that the rear brakes are 40 percent worn and the front 70 percent. I asked them why at only under 20k miles, and They told me this is normal for Land Rovers. does anyone else believe this?
Response From Tom Greenleaf☆☆☆☆☆Top Rated Answer
That's a bit early but possible. I'll probably get yelled at from every front but you can just replace the pads/linings at low miles if in good judgment all else looks well but I would do one axle at a time and let them break in then go for the other.
You can buy products that will last longer but it also depends on your driving habits. If you use two feet with an automatic trans it's YOU!
If you are a DIYer say so and if not get all the right work done. This is brakes and your life so don't fool around.
Always best to do something right and well. It costs to do that, T

Question From scythe on 96 Discovery Problems
Ok, well I have a 96 Land Rover Discovery, which by all means is a great car thus far. Currently I have had problems when the outdoor temps drop below 36F or so. The car turning over sounds like it is trying to throw a rod and is hard starting. I can let idle to warm up and once on the road when you brake at a stop sign it will die.
Restarting is even worse as it will chug and chug and after giving it gas it will eventually turn over.
I have replaced the fuel filter, plugs, plug wires and what not to no avail. I had another prognosis that it could be something to do with vacuum lines. My now understanding is that maybe I have a bunk fuel pump an electrical short, or even possibly bad injectors. The cars around 109K on it with around 20k on the rebuilt 4.0 V8.
I will appreciate any input what so ever.

>>>> http://www.autozone.com/N,15100111//shopping/partTypeResultSet.htm <<<< Click on that. This shows both a cam interupter sensor and a crank sensor which would have everything to do with timing which I think is the problem a guess for sure but if timing was way advanced it would react trying to start and could stall. Also could make sounds with the starter fighting an engine that fires way before TDC.
It's a guess. The cam thing is over $200 and crank sensor about $75. Get a full code reading and see if that helps even if no light is on. The tune-up items aren't a total waste but tossing lots of parts isn't the best fix.
Vacuum leaks wouldn't be much of an issue at cranking to just started time but they are worth looking for. It's the fact that it makes a noise that concerns me,

Thanks Tom! I never really think of simple things such as timing. I usually blame everything on some electrical or computational item. One more thing to note is that after first initial starts and once it gets going, I don't have the problem anymore. It is definately a first thing in the morning situation, even after 5-6 hours of cooling down in the fridgid northern Nevada climate I turns over like a charm. Really embarassing when you are getting off the freeway and your car dies on the way down. I will look into some more thanks for the link!

More info is always helpful, How old are You're tires ? Did this problem just recently begin ? Anyway, being winter and that city snowplows are lovingly tearing chunks of asphalt out of the road, You MAY have simply tossed a tire whieght or are seeing the begining of a tire being comprimised (a caseing problem). Either way-the best thing to do first is, take You're (Toyota? or land Rover ?) vehicle to a service station and have the tires inspected and rebalanced and check the pressure to be all ok. it's never a bad idea to have You're tires rebalanced and rotated once in a while anyway, just basic maintenance. At worst, and I mean worst and probably very unlikely (is You're vehicle 2 or 4 wheel drive ?) You may have a bearing going. But again very unlikely, But that can also be checked when the tires are being rotated and the brakes checked. But a bearing would usually be felt through more of a range and probably accompanied by a new noise. Good luck and happy motoring.

Need a bit more info to even guess. Auto/standard trans? Does it feel like engine, trans, or a wheel type thing?
