3.9l for a 96 disco mate, I deal with discos all day at work, the main thing that let them down is all the electrical crap

if it is on gas, check the air flow meter

and dont worry about oil, they all leak

They are a good car for the price, as said 1996 will have a 3.9ltr injected motor (good motor), if it's manual it will have a decent gearbox, r380 5 speed mated to an lt230 transfer which are also pretty good:smile:
If an auto it will be a zf which are known for their strength, also mated to the lt230 tranasfer.
The only let down will be the fuel consumption, not very good:frown:
