Question about 1988 Land Rover Range Rover
When it's cold out side it takes my rangie forever to start. I have to crank it until the battery is almost dead before it starts and then it idles very low @ about 500 rpm. When it's above 40 outside it fires right up and idles fine.
Its the cold start sensor, happened to me a few years ago. Sensor located just behind thermostat housing, there are two and you will see the wiring plugs going to them. I am sure it is the front one. Cheap repair, lucas part is about £6.
Be careful though, steel into alloy! ease it out gently and take time putting it back in to avoid cross-thread. Fiddly job but not hard.
