Customer Question
I have a 99...

I have a 99 Landrover Freelander 1.8L Petrol. I've just re-done the haed gasket and, while the car is running generally fine it feels as though the balance between O2, fuel and timing is a bit out making it idle a little unevenly. I wonder if the ECM needs looking at?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

What sort of details?
