Question about 1998 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

My 1998 Land Rover Discovery starts intermittantly. Sometimes it is OK, sometimes it chugs for awhile then quits and sometimes it simply won't start. Mechanics gave up because it always started for them!

    I have had this in the shop twice for a total of 5 days-- they never found the problem and damn thing always started for them. I understand the fuel pump is about a $700 replacment-- is that about right?

This sounds like a failing fuel pump, this would cause low fuel pressure and that would account for the chugging as u call it, if the fuel pump has over or near 100,000 miles it is very likely that it is the problem, the pump is located inside the gas tank, if u replace it also check the fuel pump connector for burned contacts and replace the fuel filter or the manufacturer won't honor the warranty.

1998 land rover discovery starting itself


The relay is on the starter itself, its the smaller round object that actully has the wires from the battery run to it. Sometimes they will stick connected, causing it to start as soon as you turn on the key. If you have had the wires off, you may have put the main hot wire on the wrong side of the relay.

Does the starter spin? Has the battery been load tested? Are the battery cables clean and tight on the the battery posts? Check all this and you will likely find one of them to be the problem.

99 land rover discovery intermittant problem runs rough then runs fine


Having a similar problem with my Disco. Talked to a couple guys I know who done a lot of work on them and you might check the O2 sensors and/or the spark plugs. My Disco kinda pulses during acceleration especially when you first crank up. When it warms up is smooths out. If that is what you mean by running rough. If your more chugging like the car just doesn't got it, it more likely a fuel flow issue.
Last thing cause it would be the most expensive. Your computer could be crapping out. The Disco doesn't have a mechanical distibutor. It is all done by computer and that could going.
Hope this gets you started.
