Take off the Fuel filter and see if it is dry. If it is dry you know its a fuel line bleeding down or a fuel pump. Prime the new filter with fuel and see if the engine will hit.

Since you replaced the Glow plugs did you test the circuit? You should be able to test each plug wire when the engine is in startup. You can take out a Glow plug and ground it with a battery jumper cable while it gets power from its wire off the controller. The plug should heat up. Or you can just test the wire with a meter.

There are crank position sensors and cam sensors I believe on this model. Check with Autozone after you do the other tests.

The last case would be the worst, jumped time or problems with timing gears. Like to know results and Good Luck.

Won't Start & No glow Plug Light on Dash

I am with a similar problem...

After putting on a new sump i found that the starter motor would work cranking the engine but no power is going to the glow plugs. The light on the dash does not appear either.

The relay for the coils does click but that is the end of it. I have a suspission it is the imobiliser but after taking the battery on and off several times to reset... still nothing.

There is fuel, good battery (fully charged), fuel lines are clean pressurised...

Any ideas???

Land rover discovery 1996 very sluggish when trying to start

sounds like you gotta lazy starter motor,put a current clamp on it and see what the current(amps)are a high load and you got a dodgy starter.a good mechanic would have tested that...

Landrover discovery l reg 1994 .when i start the car it starts fine , when i try to turn it off the engine still runs and the battery and glow plug lights come on. i have to stall the car to turn it off...

its the fuel pump cut off switch... just change the switch which is located in the fuel look like a big screw with 2 or 3 wire coming out of it.

happy trying.

1996 discovery starting problem


Make sure there is voltage going to the fuel solenoid on the pump, i did the same with my landrover and it just would not start or would start and just cut out, turned out to be the wire going to the fuel solenoid was not working, just re-wired from a wire behind the dash board that supplied enough voltage, that when the landrover had started the wire then supplying voltage.

Just check by putting a multimeter on the fuel solenoid wire and turn the engine over if the voltage drops to below 12v then it`s most likely the same problem i had.
