Question about 1996 Land Rover Discovery

2 Answers

Land rover discovery 1996 very sluggish when trying to start

I My P reg 1996 Discovery is struggling to start when it's cold & is sluggish, I have renewed the air filter, fuel filter, heater plugs, put a new battery in & renewed the earth terminals & it is still the same. When it eventually starts it runs ok, but when I go to start it again after leaving it sitting for say half an hour it is still struggling to start.
I'm now desperate to try & solve this problem, as the mechanics I've used obviously don't know either...

At first I replaced the IAC valve. Idle control valve in other words and then I had to replace the throttle positon control valve. Now it cranks and idles good. After this you may need to check the fuel pump and the fuel pressure regulator.

SOURCE: 2001 land rover discovery II locate fuel filter and fuel pump

for Land Rover Discovery 1999-2004 no more external Fuel Filter serviceable anymore...it's a built-in part with the fuel pump. so if you want to change the filter then change the whole fuel PUMP.
