My Landrover Discovery 1996 TDi Auto has developed a rythmic drumming noise, most noticeable when highway cruising 90 -100kph when under load. Ease the pedal a fraction and it stops. Has been doing it for a while now off and on but seems to be getting worse - even my wife comments on it. Has anybody had this sort of experience, or any suggestions as to the problem?

sounds simular to a universal joint on a tail shaft. if it is it wil star vibrating soon.
could also be a wheel bearing. turn the stering wheel from side to side while doing about 60 k's . if it comes and goes thats it.

While this hasn't happened to me in a 4WD, I have experienced this in my previous Commodore. It turned out to be the "budget" tyres the previous owners (Randwick City Council) fitted to it. You'd expect the problem to be present at a wider speed range, but it wasn't. Only around 100 km/h. A set Bridgestone RE92s fixed it then.

Thats a good point Savvas. My father has had this with Kuhmo OE car tyres also.

Drumming noise you are hearing is coming from the empty space between your ears . All Landrover owners have this space . Drumming is just a beginning of the simptoms , next you will get a bad case of verbal diarrhea . Just take look at the alreadytaken69 . The cure is simple and very effective. Just buy Toyota .

I just wish these cretons would go back to their channel 1&2 on UHF and leave us in peace. Tom, the drumming could be several things, the tyres would be the first thing to check. Wheel bearings may also although they should be a constant noise/feel. If your Universal joints are OK, then your tail shaft may be out of balance. I had this problem many years ago on a Toyota truck, and a rebalance fixed the problem. Good luck and ignore the idiot element, who seem intent on destoying this forum with childish comments.
Happy trails, Mike.

Tom, the drumming could also be harmonics building up in the door skins, or other panels. I have heard this occurring in a few different brands of vehicle. I believe that it can be solved by spraying the inside of the dor with a bituminous coating, similar to sound deadening. This reduces the vibration. Bill Church
