Check or replace the coolant temp switch. they are cheap and in my truck it controlled the pcm's lean or richen function. which after warmed up changed the mixture.

Check the fuel pressure when the vehicle is cold and compare it with when it's hot.Also check the fuel return dump valve , that this isn't returning too much fuel.

1992 Range Rover starts up runs fine but after warmed up and shut off by key won't start for at least 2 hrs. Rick Please help


sounds to me like the cat converter is stopped up. Usually the engine will die out after a short while though if it is clogged. Over time the pressure will release enough for the engine to start again. The coil could be getting hot and fails to spark, but again this should kill the engine after a short while. If you let the engine idle will it die on its own? more info if you can supply any would be great.

Hi, I have a 1998 Range Rover P38 and it takes up to 4 cranks to start the engine when cold. After the vehicle is warmed up it starts after the first crank. Any idea what the problem may be?


Hi Servo, Try replacing the temperature which sends signals to the computer. Seems you have a problem with the cold start system which is controlled from that sensor. Regards John

Sounds like something is overheating then and possibly a sensor. Not familiar with Rovers but might be a problem with the CAS and/or CPS which tells the ECU the motor is running and when to fire. Also maybe the IAC is bad and when you go from throttle to idle it can't control it and allows it to die.

Range rover 4.2 vogue year model 1993.


The normal reason why a hot engine doesn't start is the choke. Your fancy new range rover will have a computer controlled choke that will be activiated by a temperature sensor. maybe in his enthusiasm to replace expensive parts your dealer missed replaciijng this cheap little component. i don't see it in the list of replacements in your posting. Another possibility is that the sensor is OK but just disconnected.

In my ancient range rover I have a manual choke but essentially the same engine. I know that if the motor is hot I can't start it with the choke on.
