Re: my freelander will not start when hot
Your anti-freeze level may be low....check the level in the coolant res. It will show higher level when cold than when hot. There may be a sensor in the res. that will not allow it to start when level is low....

sounds like a hot and cold issue with either the transmission or transmission computer module. take to dealership and have them take a look. its possible you have something faulty in there. Also check to see if you have transmission fluild in it to proper levels.
Check transmission fill and differential fills for proper levels. Also, if temperature is cold, allow vehicle to warm up with transmission in forward gear for about ten seconds before moving to allow fluids to move freely along channels in transmission. In extremely cold climates, some change may be needed in viscosity of fluids. See your dealer for information on this. You didn't indicate how cold it is where you are driving, but low fluid levels, lack of adequate lubrication or severe cold can be a cause of this problem.
Assuming they're not frozen to the windscreen(!), the problem could lie with the wiper motor or linkage being fouled with sticky grease which goes solid when cold. Locate the motor and linkage from the engine bay by removing the covers and spray the moving parts with WD40 while operating. Once clean, stop the wipers and use clean multi-purpose grease.
check the entire exhaust system (in the engine bay, don't worry about the pipes) for leaks probably around the exhaust manifold or some sort of pvc valve. also could be the cooling system for your transmission.
I am having same problem with my freelander...blowing cold air. But I tried something like starting the veh and drive round for 10 mins then turn the heater speed control to 3 or 4....it started warming up and was OK until next day and I'm back with same routine...try it and see
