Question about 1993 Land Rover Range Rover County
My 1993 Rover just stops running when we drive over rough roads. It restarts easily, runs aways, then just quits.
Doesn't always to this. Sometimes runs as it should.
Rough roads means the chassis is rocked over washouts and humps here in Costa Rica. Thought maybe there was a fuel shut off (accidents). When you re-start, it takes a moment for the engine to build revs, ...will do it sometimes on normal paved roads, HELP
I had the same problem with my 1993 range rover. It turned out to be the ignition switch. after thousands of times inserting the key, over the years this process slowly pushes the back side of the switch away from the ignition switch housing. This consists of a plastic disk which holds the mechanical stop that keeps the ignition in the run position. If the disk is not secure and tight against the ignition housing the hold mechanism will not work properly. Mine would start and run however the first time i hit a bump the ignition switch would turn its self to the acc. position and the vehicle would stop running. I found the solution on okierover.com He was very clever in his way of a permanent repair. He opened up the steering column and used tie wraps to hold the plastic disk secure against the end of the ignition switch. Thus no more automatic ignition turn offs.

This can be a tricky gremlin to chase. this should most likely be either
A) a loose distributor ( the thing where all the spark plug wires run into)
B) Fuel pump going bad
C) loose battery cables (check both ends of all cables coming from the battery)
these may not solve the problem, but ist a place to start
