Question about 1998 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

Starting Have a 98 Discovery II. Get in it in the morning and it cranks a little to start. After running it and getting it warmed up, cut it off and leave it for 15-30 minutes and it won't start. Have to hold pedal to floor to get it going. And sometime that doesn't work. After it sits for hours and cools down, then it starts. What would be causing this problem? Could it be a throttle sensor?

Don't run premium fuel (lights harder) Light weight oil like 5- 20 synthetic helps some,however,an engine heater would be best,simple to install,keeps everything warm,heater gets hot in seconds,engine life is prolonged.

06 equinox eng cut out when warm does not crank over untill cool

Start with the fuel pump.When you get into your car turn the ignition key to the on position but do not start your car.Listen for the fuel
Pump to engage,you will hear a low whine.If you hear the pump engage,that doesn't rule that the fuel pump is fine.It sounds like the pump though.

2002 disco II hard to start if it sits 15minutes. It takes 3 or 4 cranks to get started. Once started it runs great and there are no fault codes.

Take it to the dealer.. Theses guys are jokes on this website and could not solve a starting problem if the car just needed gas as a fix. What a joke...

Landrover 2001 cuts out after 5 to 10 minutes (no spark,no fault lights/warning signals)After 30+ minutes car starts runs perfect for 5 to 10 and cuts out.Help needed, thanks

I just ran into a 2002 Discovery doing the same thing. What ended up being the fix was a cam sensor and crank sensor. That is about all I can say without more information. Hope this helps and best of luck.

Hard Start in the mornings

it is your battery. some batteries have a higher rating than other batteries. look at your battery and check the "CCA", or Cold Cranking Amps. that is how much power it will put out in the mornings or when in cold weather. the higher the cca rating, the easier your car will start in the mornings. your also have a larger vehicle with it being an SUV, so it will generally take more power to turn the starter anyways. Just walk into any parts store, even Wal-Mart, and get a battery with a higher CCA rating than the one cu5rrently in your vehicle. There should be a sticker on the battery that will tell. Good Luck
