    Discovery 1 Automatic Box not locking in Park?

  7. Re: Has Anyone Heard of LPG Injection System for 300TDi's?

    Thanks Johnno. I might give it a go for $300. Most blokes reckon it improves the power under boost significantly. I imagine it would help the burn which should lower egt's.

  9. Has Anyone Heard of LPG Injection System for 300TDi's?

    I just had a guy offer me an LPG system for my 300tdi that injects LPG into the intake manifold running off a small computerised system. He reckons it only starts once the motor reaches operating...

    New 300tdi Fanbelt Noise?

    As some of you may remember, I have just successfully reconditioned my 300tdi but had to replace a leaky Welch Plug next to the P Gasket.

    So, I fix the leak and...
  26. Re: 300TDi rebuild mistakes. I hope this may help someone

    Well, I was right, it was the Welch Plug leaking and not the P Gasket. Easy enough job to remove the housing and get to everything I needed to.
    Waiting on parts now.
    Do you know I replaced 4 x...
  27. Re: 300TDi rebuild mistakes. I hope this may help someone

    Trust the P Gasket to generate debate. I'm pretty convinced though on my motor it's the Welch Plug dripping slowly under pressure because the coolant only starts to show 3/4's of the way down the...

  31. Re: 300TDi rebuild mistakes. I hope this may help someone

    Yea, I think you're right! Whether it was the oil pump, the oil squirters (as an old Mechanic suggested) or the combustion passing by the rings the bottom line is, that oil was missing from where it...
  32. Re: 300TDi rebuild mistakes. I hope this may help someone
