    Thumbs up Replace Intake Manifold 2002 freelander

    I have a 2002 freelander with 42,181 miles. Fault codes:P0171 & P1472. my actuator 2 valve is stuck open and air intake tube is broken. Dealer wants $2,000.00. I would like to become self-reliant and make this baby last. Is this repair for mortal men(or women)?where to start?

    Welcome to the forums. The repair should be straight forward. Others will chime in with more experience with the Freelander as I just know my Disco. Good luck with the repair; it should cost a lot less than 2 grand when you do it yourself.

    I have just finished this repair myself.
    Do you have any specific questions that I can help you with?

    I have this exact issue right now. The intake is a $1200 part & is sold as 1 piece. Cannot find any sources including rave showing the inside mechanisms but that is what is inoperative!

    Did you replace the intake or open it up & service the valves?

    Unfortunately it was a replacement of the entire part as it is not serviceable.

    I had intended to cut-up the old part to learn about the mechanism inside, but I never got around to doing it.

    After I got it running again, I sold the car immediately ...

    As scrap.

    I gave a full history of problems that I had with the Freelander and even though it was currently running well,
    I told the new buyer that I considered it a parts car only.

    To call it a safe or reliable mode of transportation would have been stretching the truth too much for me.

    The latest are the MAS sensor & #3 cylinder coil since i posted last!! misfire in #3 & #1 cylinders. checked plugs & coils. Pulled the MAS connector & #1 resumed firing! Replaced MAS sensor. #3 coil tested not working so i replaced that too. On what other car on this planet does an ignition coil & MAS sensor fail at the same time except this POS!! Parts & labor $ total for the past 3 months are about $4500 excluding the new coil & MAS & the butterflies in the intake are still fooked. Sold that worthless piece of shyte yesterday for $2600!! Could have got more but i just wanted that devil car away from me as quick as possible!

    Found this when searching for OBDII codes!
