Question about Land Rover Discovery
Check fuel pressure. You may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. Pressure may be too high, or the regulator diaphragm may have failed-if it is vacuum operated, pull off the vacuum line-if any evidence of gas in the line, the regulator has failed, and letting gas get sucked into the engine through the vacuum line. That could explain the gas smell and the flooding.

I had more or less the same problem. It would only happen when the engine was cold. According to the mechanic, the fuel pump was going bad. After replacing it, I havent had it happen to me again, granted its only been a couple of days since I changed it.

Check fuel pressure, and regulator. A leaking regulator gives a warm engine more fuel [ it does not like it] a cold motor does. same as a flooded motor. Good luck

I agree that it's probably the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS). Without the pulse from this sensor, you vehicle will never start. Sometimes water from a leaking water pump will run down onto this sensor and cause it to fail.
You can go to MSN Auto for your vehicle and under the "Reliability" tab you will see the same thing regarding the CPS (listed under Engine issues).

Start by making sure you have spark to the spark plugs. If not you may have a problem with the plug wires or coil. It's also possible you're not getting gas to the engine possibly from a faulty fuel pump.
If you change the fuel pump be sure to replace the fuel filter also.
