Rangerover p38 diesel stalls on over run @ when stood in trafic,sometimes takes ages to start, sometimes straight away can sometimes be a bit eratic. gives a feeling of bloked fuel filter but its new?

Back in the "older days" the problem was, what they called "vapor Lock" happens when the fuel gets too hot from the engine. Try to move the fuel line away from the manifold or other hot engine component.

Charged battery wont start just clicks

The clicking may be a starter motor problem, if it's been stood for a while it might need starting to get everything back to normal, eg the cars memory......

Battery drains after 40 t 60 days.replaced alternator and battery but it happened again

is the car just stood up doing nothing or are you only doing short trips 3 or 4 miles a day?
every time you start your car it takes 20 minuets of driving to put back what you took out the battery and thats with out head light/heaters on?
drive it further or walk?
if its stood up for months its likley to be the alarm draining the battery running it up once a week wont do any good realy. its the same thing as boing whats above?
if its just standing around get the bigest solor sell as you can find say 10 wats and hook that up to the battery,,, then its problem solved
