Freelander 2 cuts out in the cold

When it's cold, it'll start without any problems but after a couple of minutes it'll suddenly switch on the engine management system and make you go slow. Restarting the engine will remove the problem. Today after it happened, I continued my journey in gear 4 and at 40 mph and it did not resurface. Definitely a link with cold weather. Local garage ran the faults machine on it, came up with error P1259 immobiliser to PCM system error. Note: have another key which broke down recently. Pressing the button makes all the windows open. Can you help

Go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the ECU (they do it for free, where a shop will charge you). They'll give you the codes, and you can post them here. Once you do that, I can help you narrow it down.

SOURCE: Ford Focus Engine System Fault warning light

yes there is a know problem with the fuel system. fuel pump breaks down, empty your fuel filter into a bowl and check for metalic, if you have this in the filter your pump is F..... along with all the other common rail stuff. expensive job... error codes though, i find that hard to believe, fuel pressure faults will occur, i think you garage does not know what to do. or does not want to tell you the cost of the job and he will be in doubt himself of wether he is right..... was you engine coil light flashing at any point.!!!

SOURCE: car started then cut out, engine fault system

So what's your question?? The codes don't lie, they pinpoint a specific problem that is causing problems. If the codes point you to the immobiliser then I would start there, your always free to get another scan for a second opinion..

1996 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 L has trouble accelerating

often times the engine needs to warm up to normal operating temperature. this varies from makes and models. if you cant wait that long, having it idle for approximately 5 - 10 minutes should at least lessen the acceleration problem, but the longer you wait the better it will be on the engine.

My 1995 subaru impreza wrx wont start from cold keeps cutting off and wont take any trottle till its warm but once warmed its grand till next morning again any ideas please and thanks

i own the same car, same problem. you'll need a new throttle body, your cold start isnt opening up. DO NOT get one from a junk yard. you'll spend 50 bucks to find out that one does the same thing.. it is a very common problem with subaru's, though very easy to fix and it is for sure a "diy" project all you need is a flathead screwdriver and a 10mm socket and a ratchet

Did you check timing 6*btdc? Could be bad fuel distributor. Misfire is either a problem with fuel delivery or ignition (spark). If you can't find or fix the problem you'll ruin your catalytic converter.

White smoke and engine cutting out

It sounds like the cylinder head gasket, or even a cracked head. You must go back to the repair shop.
