1996 discovery starting problem

Hello,

I am need of help with my 1996 discovery. I recently just changed the fuel filter several days ago because it was running sluggish as if it was having a fuel supply problem. It fixed that issue but when the car sits over night I have problems starting up it. The past three days it will take 20 to 30 minutes to start in the morning. Today it will not start at all I am not sure if the engine has gotten to much fuel, not enough fuel or if the problem is with the fuel injectors or fuel pump. I will appreciate any troubleshooting advice on what to check myself to eliminate each possible area.

Thanks,
Angel Del Pino

Hi.

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.

SOURCE: 1995 Land Rover Discovery WHERE are fuel filters

The fuel filter is mounted to the frame just ahead of the right rear tire. You can see it through the wheel well. The fittings are very likely to be frozen so I would soak them with some penetrating oil before you try to loosen them. if it is not starting however, I would focus more on the ignition system, the ignition module near the coil in the front left side of the engine compartment may be bad.

Hi justin, sounds like you have a headgasket problem are you going through any water? If not you may have a leaking fuel injector or faullty fuel pressure regulator. you either have fuel or water leaking into a cylinder causing it to miss fire on first start up.

Oh wise ones...please help me. I have a 2001 Land Rover Discovery II LE-7. Where is the fuel pump located and what is the process for changing it? Thank you in advance. Have a Great Day!


The fuel pump, like all vehicles these days, is located inside the fuel tank. To replace most of them, you have to drain and remove the fuel tank. Luckily for you, yours can be accessed from the top by removing the carpet etc. from the rear cargo area.

1996 F250 powerstroke 7.3L keeps dying


It is sometimes difficult to determine exactly what is wrong with the 7.3L engines. Many times it is hit and miss for the do-it-yourselfer. It sounds like you are getting enough fuel at first and then fuel is being constricted. You might want to try changing the fuel filter. Sometimes debris becomes lodged in the fuel tank switching valve which would require cleaning the valve or replacing it.
