Default Hello!

I have a 1998 Discovery. I have had it for about 2 1/2 years. I have replaced the radiator hoses, the battery, the master cylinder, and a few other things that are escaping my memory right now. My car has a semi-self changing oil system (it leaks quite a bit), but not as much as it used to.

My current issue is that it won't actually start moving. I start it, starts great, and move the shifter, then wait and wait and it never actually goes into gear. This started yesterday. Before that it would take forever to shift from 1st to 2nd. I was very gentle with it, so I would drive around at under 30mph until it was willing to shift.

Any advice it appreciated. I would love to fix it, without spending a fortune.
Thank you.

Buy a used transmission or sell it sadly... maybe part it out like I am doing with my 97, my engine started using 4 quarts of oil per tank of fuel.. decided it was time to put it to rest and bought a 2002 Disco.

When working with GEMS vehicles. Never try to locate a misfire by pulling plug leads off - pull the injector connector instead. Otherwise you can blow up the ECU.

Secondly never swap ECUs between vehicles to test them, because both vehicles and ECUs may stop working, and you'll have to have them all reset by a franchised LR dealer (ouch!).

Default Sone More information.

So we have also replaced the spark plugs, and the alternator drive belt as well as the valve cover gaskets, the pcv valve and hoses.
I know we need to do additional oil leak repairs, as well as cruise control repairs, I also know I need to find leaks in my windshield washer system.
Here are some pictures:
