Question about 1996 Land Rover Range Rover
Hi. can anyone help with sugestions. i have a range rover p38 1996 model with a bmw 2.5 6 cylinder deisel engine in it. the car was running ok but it was going to france this weekend. did not happen fery booked and all. it had an oil change and fuel filter change both oil and deisel filters where the correct ones. the problem started the next day after it was power washed out under the bonnet. it was ok then 40 mins later after a 8 mile trip it developed a realy rought running engine . it is running like a petrol hunting on full choke and when you drive it it pulls like mad more then befor but then cuts when the throttle is only on light.it is also chucking alot of deisel smoke out aswell so it seems to be over fueling. took it to a local garage but there diognostic machine would not be excepted in it. but a trip to the main dealer would cost £150 just to hook it up to the computor so i would rather someone else tell me what the problem could be befor i let the big guns rob me. could it be relay i dont think it is injector as it runs smove at higher revs and also it seems like all the cylinders are miss fireing at the same time. anyway has anybody got any good idears. many thanks pete.
The fuel system is a drive by wire and there is no accellerator cable.Check the plug going into the injector pump and clean,there is probably water here stopping the correct voltage to the throttle pump spool.
