    Yes, had it check, battery is good, alternator is good, i checked the cables to make sure they were clean and tight to the starter, along with ground.

    It seems to only do it after the truck has cooled down, say over night or after a couple of hours, It always starts just really slow sometimes like its not getting enough juice to turn it.

2000 Land Rover Discovery 2 hard to start during this winter season


Aside from building a garage or installing an engine block heater I have used this trick in the past on my 98 RR HSE. It may work for you if the starting issue is simply temperature related. Placing a shop-light or shielded work light underneath your block at night will produce just enough heat in many cases to overcome the slow starting problem.
Other possibilities may be under powered/weak battery. The rovers are known for high cranking amp demand and a weak or mismatched battery could certainly cause this problem. On the outside chance that it may be fuel delivery related you might try priming your fuel injection prior to cranking. Do this by turning key to position 2 (or last position before crank) wait til all the bells and whistles stop usually about 3-5 seconds, and repeat a couple times. If this is helpful, the bad news is it may be indicative of mechanical issues on the horizon.
****SAFETY NOTE***** PAY ATTENTION TO LIGHT PLACEMENT MAKING SURE NOT TO PUT IT IN PATH OF OIL LEAKS.
Hope this helps.

On my 98 silverado hasslow cranking moter or it just clicks battery charged it dose this but if i jump will start everytime when slow cranking headlights do not dim


Probably time for a new battery. If it is 3-4 years old or older I would lean toward that. Take the truck to your local parts store and have them test the battery out.

98 GMC k2500 7.4L Rouch Idle


TRY THIS BEFORE U SPEND ANYMORE MONEY N PARTS.
Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake

Make sure you have good clean connections from battery to starter and ground. If all okay, you may want to have a starter draw test performed.
