I have a 1997 Range Rover p38 with BMW 2.5 diesel injection engine,since being out in cold conditions (minus 4) on tuesday she runs like she is running out of fuel,but no she has plenty.
Also doesnt want to start unless you hold the ignition key on until it eventualy catches,she ran okay on the outward journey 16 miles then decided she didnt like me anymore.
Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

It turned out to be a broken wire on the injector which was causing a bad connection,now running better than before.
The cold was just a coincidence.

Thank you and best regards,Yvonne

P38 diesel fuel injector pump overheats and inhibits starting

This is an unusual problem as injector pumps use diesel to lubricate internally and to cool the pump. For it to overheat and cause you problems means that fuel is escaping under high pressure or the operating pressure is excessive . Best discuss this with a professional diesel pump repair shop as I feel there is a serious problem in the pump.

I have a 53 plate BMW X5 Diesel. Recently with the cold weather it wount start in the am? I have had the battery checked and it seems fine?? When the car is started it runs fine all day and will switch on...

A very common fault with them in cold weather is the lift pump, an in-line torpeedo like pump situation half walf between fuel tank and engine under the car.

Part number is 16146767383 however buy off BMW it'll be expensive so order the exact same one off Land Rover under part number WQB100482 and save £££s ;o)

I am 99.9999999% certain this is your issue.

1998 range rover p38 2.5 dse auto engine stalls

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.
