1995 Land Rover Skipping Sign In

1995 Land Rover Discovery. I had a mechanic, that I can not find anymore, who repaired this car once before. It was dumping raw fuel and burning up the Cat Converters. He tried everything and I mentioned to him the car seemed to mess up every time it rained. He investigated that and called me back in five min and car was repaired after months of work. He said as I remember, this was over 4 years ago, The wires leading to the control box was holding water and he said he taped it up and the car has ran fine until now. It is doing the same thing, but I can not find anyone who knows where to look for this area of wires that may be in water. Please can someone help me. I thought it would be apparent were he did this but evidently not. Thanks

Imagine that, he doesn't answer his phone now.

You had a nasty misfire

He tried everything

Well yes, except diagnosing it

and I mentioned to him the car seemed to mess up every time it rained.

So you not only held out information to your mechanic that could help, it took you four months to do it? Wow. I don't know who is dumber, you or this phantom mechanic that you can't get ahold of.


He investigated that and called me back in five min and car was repaired after months of work. He said as I remember, this was over 4 years ago.


Well you were dealing with an idiot if it took months of work to pin down a simple misfire, especially one bad enough to cook a cat.





The wires leading to the control box was holding wand he said he taped it up and the car has ran fine until now. It is doing the same thing, but I can not find anyone who knows where to look for this area of wires that may be in water.

If a competent tech actually did just tape wires, he should be dragged down the road behind a car he HASN'T worked on so it will run right. Only a complete retard would do this.

Please can someone help me. I thought it would be apparent were he did this but evidently not. Thanks


I think the biggest problem in this whole issue is honestly you. When you saw a big quote from a real tech, you decided to find a cheaper option. Did you really think owning a luxury brand that isn't new somehow made it cheaper to repair? Why do you think the man who bought it got rid of it in the first place? Like he didn't spend enough money to get it off of the showroom?

You found some backdoor "mechanic" who claims to fix anything cheap. Well looks like he isn't what you thought he was. Here is a bite or reality. You drive a luxury SUV. In its day, the pimps, players and royalty bought it. Well it is not new now. So time to pony up real money (pimp, player, royalty type money) and get this fixed right.

Feel free to find the next retard whose cell number doesn't work a month later to try to fix this. Or go to a real shop next time and pony up Land Rover money to fix a Land Rover. Just because it isn't new doesn't mean it is cheap to fix. Kinda a prerequisite of owning a Land Rover.
