What did you use to clear the maf sensor. cleaning the maf you need a special spray. I do not think your problem was in those 2 sensors. do you know if you have spark at the coils

    Hi,ok how did you get it started .? how you use starter fluid? if it is flood that would mean you have a weak spark. that can be a bad ignition control module,and I just the price on a new one wow I almost had a heart attack.. or a crank shaft position sensor.. a used one is better. I have a lot of ideas to go through

    I have a similar problem, we replaced the coil and have power going into but not coming out of the coil. We do not see a spark from the plugs when we pull them out and roll it over. It will try to run on starting fluid???

The ignition system is controlled by the ECM. Check power at fuse box in on right side under dash. Check fuses right side engine compartmentlower dash panel if all OK check power to ECM located right side "A" pillar in alloy box. this unit could be faulty if no spark at coils, assuming they have been connected correctly. may have to get tested for codes at L/R dealer or someone with test tool. Another source of problem may well be flat battery in transponder key. The indicator light on the dash willflash rapidly for 10 seconds if the vehicle has been unlocked with the remote and the drivers door is opened if the battery in remote is getting low

98 land rover turns over but wont start

Get a used spark plug and hook it to a sparkplug wire and have someone crank it over and ground the plug and see if it sparks if it don't you have a problem with the computer or electronic ignition. Or it could be that it jumped timing.

Landrover discovery idles rough when hot but idles good when fuel tank is low

Hi have you made sure the fuel tank is vented? or if the vent is blocked as i know of a couple of these that have done a similar thing, the fuel cap vent got blocked and the tank was under a lot of pressure causing problems in the idle, worth a try anyway

I have bought a 99 land rover discovery and it is overheating

From practical experiences of heavy trucks, this problem is created by poor coolant flow thro' the Radiator Core. Flush cleaning the Rad. or decontaminating the exterior air flowways will not cure the problem. My recommendation is a Recore or after market replacement.

Starts fine when cold, after running dies on idle then wont start

Sounds like the fuel filter is dirty and needing to be changed. It's cheap and easy to swap out.

I get a gas odor in the interior of my 1996 land rover discovery only when I open the windows. There is no leak from what I can see. The car runs fine at speed but dies occasionally at idle.

The gas smell is from your tail door seal,the window that is open causes a vacuum from this area , adjust the door to close tighter or replace the seal.V8 idling problem ,remove and clean the idle control valve situated on the rhs rear of the intake manifold (seen from the drivers seat )adjust the idling on the allen key screw near to the throttle cable lincage.
