Land Rover’s Freelander 2 is a second generation sport utility vehicle designed for rugged durability and comfort. Land Rover uses cutting edge technology and top-of-the-line parts to ensure their vehicles will stand the test of time. Though usually very dependable, some Land Rover owners have engine problems with their SUVs.
A sudden and perplexing problem, some Freelander owners report that they experience a loss of power while accelerating. They describe the issue as stepping on the gas pedal and getting no further response. It is as if the engine has chosen a top rpm of approximately 2000 and will not go about that level. The engine will often idle fine and no engine warning lights will be displayed.
Several different issues may be the cause for a sudden loss of power in the Freelander 2. The air supply to the engine may be compromised, so the air intact should be thoroughly checked for blockage. There may be a computer software issue in the system and a computer diagnostic run is the only way to get the codes from the engine. Third, there may be an issue with the throttle body not responding properly. Any of these repairs will definitely take time and experience, of which the average mechanic may not have either. The best course of action is to visit a licensed professional.
The knowledgeable techs at your nearby independent Land Rover service center will examine your LR2 and promptly estimate needed repairs for your unique situation. You will be pleasantly surprised by their great service and customer-friendly prices.
