Question about 1994 Land Rover Discovery

2 Answers

Discovery land rover will not fire.

Getting ligths and other power, but car will not fire. Getting a spark from the plugs, which incidently are fairly new. Replaced fuel filter with new one and cleaned out petrol to ensure no blockage - still will not start

Have looked for the path of the fuel line so i can fully check. Can spot it when i look under the vehicle, but cannot find under the bonnet

    Had the same problem and replaced the cap and rotor.

    That made it possible to start at all, but it was not good enough,

    so we cleaned the throttle body, that helped but it's still not starting

    clean. Too much time on the starter.

Try taking the air cleaner assembly off you might not be getting enough air to engine
if this is the case then the throttle body needs to be maintenanced

heres another suggestion it just hasnt sucked gas to the engine to crank over sometimes they help

go out buy an electric fuel pump
find the fuel inlet source to engine hook up electric fuel pump
attach only ground to something in engine compartment
then get a can so that when gas comes out it has something to go into
tap the electric fuel pump power lead to the positive of battery let run till gas comes out make sure not to spark your working with gas
once gas becomes present detach electric fuel pump all the way set aside
hook gas line back to port and then start vehicle this should start

also with fuel filters there are 3 on a vehicle
one in engine compartment
one on chassis back by the tank
and one in the tank called the sending unit this has a filter in the tank this one could be clogged
make sure these filters are in the right position with gas flow flowing in right direction

I have a 79 New Yorker with a 318 it has a hard time starting we just replaced air filter,fuel filter and lines plugs, Roter and cap it floods real easy


The old chryslers are very touchy. It sounds like the float is stuck on the carburetor flooding the engine or it is stuck closed not allowing enough gas to get into the cylinders. Pull a spark plug and see or smell if there is gas on it.If so is there spark? You have solid state ignition I believe. Pull a spark plug wire off of a plug and hold with insulated pliers and see if you are getting spark to the plugs. The engine needs air, fuel and spark to run. Check firing order for the wires 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 is the firing order. That should get you started. Let me know if you need more troubleshooting.

02 land rover discovery turns over but wont start


OTHER THAN A MECHANICAL PROBLEM THERE ARE 2 THINGS THAT KEEP YOUR CAR FROM RUNNING, 1 No Spark, 2 No fuel. To check fuel open the air intake and squirt a little fuel into the air intake if the car starts or at least fires you probably have a loss of fuel.. The spark problem, You need to find out if the spark plugs are firing.. if they are not firing the car will not start.. THEN YOU MUST FIND OUT WHY THERE IS NO FUEL OR NO SPARK, BUT FIRST Isolate the system THAT IS NOT functioning.

Truck want start


replace the coil and condenser as the spark has to be bright dark blue with a definite snap. The orange spark is an indication of either a failed condenser (first point to check by replacing) or a burnt out coil.

Not getting any spark or fuel pressure


If there is no fuel pressure then its not getting fuel.If its not getting fuel, then getting spark is rare/.-------- So the problem relates to faulty fuel pump and clogged fuel filter.------- It is possible that the fuel filter is clogged. If you're real careful you can inject a small amount of fuel in the air intake and see if the engine fires. (you can also spray starter fluid in the air-intake) If it does, you know you have a fuel issue; if it does not it could be an ignition issue. The air-intake is the best place to inject the fuel. ---------- Get the voltage checked at spark plugs and also check the coils.The spark plugs gets power to spark from coil pack.If the coils are faulty, the spark plugs will not spark.If coil is checked ok, then problem is spark plugs itself, causing the problem.--------- It has to be replaced.This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
