I've experienced the same problem and after several visits to the dealer, I've been told I'm in for a new turbo at £2575.48 incl vat, fitted Big Cry

At this point I’m days away from buying a D4 TDV6 3.0 SE, and opposed to fixing the D3, I’d rather plough the cost of the turbo repair, into the D4.

BUT - having read the D4 thread titled ‘Faults & Fixes’, yesterday, I’m now not so sure the D4 is the way to go Confused – and am seriously considering living with the D3 turbo issue until the Jap’s produce something half decent.
 It seems, that the older I get, the faster I was...!

Loss of power

Had occasional loss of power when accelerating moderately and limp home mode when booting it to overtake. When going to limp home mode got loss of TC as well. Often just a bonging say engine system fault that cleared as soon as it came up but in limp home mode engine had to be restarted to clear. Into the dealers in Stirling and they said it was a sticky rod to the variable vanes on the TC sticking. Freed it off and no problem. been two months now and all is well.
Interestingly when fault kept re-occuring fuel consumption was around about the 31/32MPG but in usual usage I manage 27MPG and now about 26MPG seems to be the best. Always think fuel consumption is a bit high as I don't boot it for that reason but never seems to improve. Had an ERG valve changed a couple of years ago and initially it was nearly 30MPG but soon dropped back to the 27MPG.

I had this warning on my "almost out of warranty" 2007 TD3 three times in the past month or so. When it happens, the car is incapable of accelerating or increasing speed. The last time it happened, I noticed that the dial that alters the program mode, which is usually set on road use and is normally lit yellow, was not lit at all. Temperature was okay (at least 10 degs - I live in HK), dry and car not being at all laboured on a normal road, and in road use mode.

Like any computer run toy, I can turn the power/ignition off, then on, and the problem is resolved (until the next time).

Land Rover (Hong Kong, where I live) said last week there is nothing wrong. I have however sent the TD3 back to them again with 5 days warranty to go, and I want them to find a problem.


Hi Tfloyd,
Can share your result of this problem from LR Hong Kong? Eager to know about it since this problem happened to me once last week. And unfortunately, mine was out of warranty already, 2006 Disco3. Thanks in advance.

In my experience, lack of power cannot be put down to just one issue.
If something goes wrong the engine goes into 'limp home' mode to prevent damage to it.
Thus, power loss.
I've had it with turbo failure and with extreme coolant loss.
You may also get an accompanying message on the dash.
Best bet is get it to a dealer and let them plug it in to see what faults are recorded.

Oh, and welcome to the site.

Totally agree with you. My car went into "safe mode" twice, and with "engine system fault" message on the dash each time. I went to the dealer today and they showed me the ECU report result after checking my car. The fault was regarding oil pressure sensor/adnormal ( I don't remember the exact wordings ). Finally, they replaced only the fuel filter element and erase the fault code. So far no problem occur yet.

Could be intercooler hose split. Or EGR valves

No power

Had a look at all the hoses, all in order. Can you tell me where to look for the EGR valves. Almost feel like the engine do not get enough air.

EGR Valves are under the engine cover - but it is hard to work out if they are knackered or not. If you don't get a sudden power boost at about 2000 revs, then they are probably "ok".

The hoses may look ok on the outside, but can de laminate internally and give the exact symptoms you describe.

Thank you for the tips. I will have a look at the pipes after I remove them. I also will remove the EGR valve and see what it look like. Hope I can fix this.

Hi guys, I know this is an old post but it sounds like I have the same problem with my 2005 D3. I just have one question before I start pulling everything apart and that is what has changed to cause the smoke and loss of power in the first place and by blanking off the EGR ports am I going to cause any other issues... sorry thats actually two questions but I sure you could understand.
