Short answer, your batter is bad. or is disCHARGED:

wont crank?
no engine, cranks ,unless the starting system works.
unless pushed fast, like my car or i park on a hill and coast jump my car.(M/T tranny rule)

NO crank, is the true failure here:
slow Cranks are , bad battery , or a discharged battery , due to bad charging system or parked for 3 months or longer.

so ill assume its NO CRANK.
I turn the key TO START and the starter fails to CRANK.
the starter motor is dead. (key clue 1)
so i attach a set of jumper cables to my Caddy, running and this car
now cranks and RUNS (you left that out. above, huh? runs)

turnsover means nothing, because the engine starter turns over
and the engine can turn over and the engine can run,
once running the EFI system SUSTAINS runninng.
so there are 4 states there. (4 phases )

No cranks #1 reason to be slow , are a bad battery
so I charge that battery, and see how if it cranks , now?
it dont crank means a bad battery
it does work( crank) see how long it works.../?
if it dies again, or better, check the cars Alternator for by measuring
accross the battery terminals running , with any volt meter.
13.3 to 15vdc is a good alternator running the engine.
if NOT, the charge system is bad. (system)

On some cars the IMMO can block Cranking or for sure blocks
fueling after 2 seconds. So. watch the IMMO light on the dash.
Immo is the Immoblizer. option.

On my 1996 Honda Accord, I replaced the intake manifold gaskets and cleaned the EGR valve and EGR ports. My problem now is it starts ok when engine is cold but it doesnt want to do any slow running at all....

Degreaser typically won't really hurt anything unless it gets into a critical part. When you check for vacuum leaks, try it with a spray bottle of just water and spray around the entire intake and all hose connections. If the engine idles up , you've found your vacuum leak.

92 range rover county not reliable when engine is warmed up

This is going to sound a bit far-fetched, but I've had a similar problem with a '93 discovery... Turns out the problem was water in fuel tank.

the check engine light may come on for several reasons. first in newer models the light is used because the fluid levels might be low. Another reason is that the ecm may have detected a fault in the sensor system because the parameters were exceeded. another reason is it could be that your fuel cap is not on tight enough. at this point it would hard for me to determine what the codes mean due to not having the manual for your vehicle. in the mean time my suggestion would be to have a full diagnostic done on the vehicle at a shop. some of those codes could be active and some might be stored and unless cleared they will remain and the light will stay on. considering your vehicle is running fine =I suspect that there not actually be a problem but the stored codes need to be reset in order for the light to go out... please rate this........thanks
