Question about Land Rover Range Rover Sport

Engine cutting out

Hi, i have a range rover sport, recently my fuel gauge has been showing my car is empty however i know i have diesel in the car. Also i was driving and it keeps cutting out and the battery light comes on, and the car seems to be holding back like running out of power especially going up hills. Also when i felt the loss of power i stopped and it would make a judder every so often when i had the engine running but i was at a standstill. Do you think i need a new battery or does it sound like something else to you ? Regards

    Martin this is most likely a fuel problem either water in your tank or a blockage at the line in or near the pump area. I have had this same problem with normal fuel on a buick engine. Try draining fuel and filling with clean fuel from another source. If your real keen remove and check fuel pump and filter.

It doesnt sound like your battery, it sounds like a fuel problem, possible water in tank or pump issue

SOURCE: '94 VW Golf 1.8 petrol - engine cuts out and wont re-start

It could be. The car seems to be flooding its self as though you are driving on the choke all the time. Replace the air filter if dirty and clean all the breather pipes. Also check the accelerator cable is not snagged and is adjusted correctly.

SOURCE: Loss of power on acceleration. Put new fuel

Check the catalytic converter, I have the same problem, replaced fuel filter, and crank position sensor, didn't help although the fuel filter was dirty. The car has no power, engine knocks horribly when trying to accelerate up a hill/on ramp. Starts, idles good, lousy power off a stop (should sqawk tires before traction control kicks-in)

Have a 2011 RR Sport Diesel. incorectly put 2 LTRS unleded fuel defore cut out activated.Used the reset tool provided & filled the tank with Diesel Intend on continually diluting on a regular topping...

You must drain and refill the fuel tank. Some of these systems use optical sesnors in the injection pump and can be damaged not to mention the damage to the pistons and valves. Great trucks. Drain the tank.

I have replaced fuel filter in range rover and i cannot get air out of diesel fuel? and it now not starting straight away

When you replaced the fuel filter, was it half empty of fuel ? if it was , then its the fuel lift pump thats faulty. Rotate the engine till the cam allows a full stroke of the fuel lift pump primer handle, check the amount of movement of the primer handle and feel of it, that is , can you feel it pulling fuel. If the movemnt is small, then you need to change the pump.
