Could be a couple of things. The older motors ('93-95) had valve guide
problems, mostly limited to the 4.0L, but I think the 4.2 also had some
problems. However, his first step should be to replace plug wires. This
solved the problem on my '95 LWB.

There's a series of Land Rover lists at Haven't been
there in a while, but when I was, it was a great resource...if a bit quirky

'95.5 S6 avant
'96 A6 quattro avant
