Hi all, new on here so be gentle with me :grin:
I have a 52 plate (2002) L200 4Life and to day experienced a rather large power loss whilst towing.
I had a trailer of hay on the back, about 100 bales for the farm types amongst us :grin: , and to start with could not get above approx 40 mph, after a while the engine check lamp came on (bottom left of instrument panel, engine shaped symbol?), and power dropped enough to slow me to 20 mph. I stopped and checked the simple things like air filter and the fuel filter drain, as well as a visual inspection of the boost hoses and vacuum lines - nothing instantly recognisable as a fault.
After switching off the engine and restarting, the inspection lamp went off. The engine revs freely to the red line - no problem - so swapped loads for an empty trailer and progressed back to base. On the way back, it cruised happily at 60 mph with no problems.
Does anyone have any pointers as to where to start looking as the truck will be needed quite a lot over the next few weeks
