Starting & Driving
AUXILIARY EQUIPMENT CAUTION: DO NOT use auxiliary equipment, such as roller generators that are driven by one wheel of the vehicle, as they could cause failure of the gearbox differential. The vehicle will also drive itself forward through ETC action.
EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM
Exhaust fumes contain poisonous substances which can cause unconsciousness and may even be fatal.
Some local jurisdictions require emission testing using a two wheel roller dynamometer. Your vehicle is equipped with permanent 4-wheel drive and cannot be safely operated on these machines. For more information regarding safe emission testing of your vehicle consult your local Land Rover retailer.
DO NOT inhale exhaust gases.
DO NOT start or leave the engine running in an enclosed unventilated area, or drive with the taildoor open.
DO NOT modify the exhaust system from the original design.
ALWAYS repair exhaust system leaks immediately.
If you think exhaust fumes are entering the vehicle, have the cause determined and corrected immediately.
Land Rover vehicles are fitted with emission and evaporative control equipment necessary to meet a number of territorial requirements.
In some juridictions, it is against the law for vehicle owners to modify or tamper with emission control equipment, or to sanction the unauthorised replacement or modification of this equipment. In such cases, the vehicle owner and the repairer may both be liable for legal penalties.
It is important to remember that all Land Rover retailers are properly equipped to perform repairs and to maintain the emission control system on your Discovery.
