    don't guess, have a trouble code test run to see if anything shows up, replacing parts gets very expensive when they don't fix the problem, if u are going to work on this yourself buy a factory repair manual.

Is the coil down the back of the engine? If so, these had problems with water ingress, and the HT lead shorting out. Also had a multi function control box on the bulkhead, it is a black box approx 4in x 3in x1.5 with a multiplug on bottom. Check for water damage

Check the ignition timing is correct. I see that you have changed the wires so I suggest that you recheck the firing order for the plugs as it is easy to get it wrong when replacing the leads.

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

Hi justin, sounds like you have a headgasket problem are you going through any water? If not you may have a leaking fuel injector or faullty fuel pressure regulator. you either have fuel or water leaking into a cylinder causing it to miss fire on first start up.

You need a noid light for that but since they are all not firing it's most likely the cam shaft position sensor. That tells the computer the cam shaft position so it knows when to pulse each injector. Let me know if that's it. The cam shaft sensor should be pretty cheap.

I have a landrover discovery that wont start, it has a new fuel pump andv is getting spark from the coil. any ideas?

The reason for the engine to start is relative of a correct TIMING setting with a correct valve settings and the fuel delivery.
So if your fuel pump was changed , I am sure it was calibrated, hence please check on the injectors or change them as it will be best to have this done with the new pump.
Now make sure that the plugs produce a good intensity spark, if not go back to check the triggers on the HT coils - check the trigger units- check the coils using a manual make and break, check the HT wires.
Now finally check the compression on all cylinders, check the timing of the spark . Make sure there is no overflow of fuel as this flooding will not allow the engine to fire.
The car must start.

My car is not starting anymore the plugs keep getting soak with gasoline does anybody know why?

The fuel soaked plugs are what's called "flooding". You need to troubleshoot the ignition system, my guess is that you're not getting spark to fire the cylinders. Was this a gradual thing or did it just fail one day?

BAD spark! check plugs wires and coil packs. the wires are a real pain to replace because of the location of the coil packs between the intake manifold and firewall.
