    series 1 discovery TDi Auto owners

    guys,
    as mentioned in my intro, i've been looking at a '98 discovery, auto, tdi, 167000kms.

    One major query i have is when i take my foot off the accelerator, the revs completely die away (to idling level) and it seems to 'coast', until you put your foot down again and it resumes.

    this happens in drive, not in the lower gears (ie 1st 2nd) - i drove down the toowoomba range in 2nd, using the engine to brake and it was fine.

    insight anyone?

    I think you'll find this is normal while it's in Drive. It's been quite a few years since I drove a Tdi auto though.

    There would be a gearbox problem if it didn't do it in 1st, 2nd or 3rd.
