Default 2003 td6 Range rover starting problems.

Hello, my names Colin, and Ive got a startin problem with my rangie.
Between my independant garage, and my spending hours dredging through the threads on here we have made some progress but still not willing to start when it feels like it.
Problem first occurd in the morning (when cold) when it would turn over for 5-6 seconds before catching, then if you stopped it it would fall to start until it cooled down again.eventually it wouldn't start at all.
Garage got Bosch notebook on it low fuel pressure <120bar when cranking. New LP fuel pump fitted,Injector leak off test done(no problems there) fuel filter changed, and new Battery fitted.
Now its starting from cold again without nearly as much winding, but when you go back to it after its hot it doesn't want to know. After going right through the notebook today it is evident that the intake temp is 25deg C when the engine is stone cold, and 46degC after engine been stopped for 15 mins. this reading doesn't seem right to me?
The other fault code that has been ther from day and keeps reappearing after it has been cleard is code;-P2550. The garage found out today that it is:- torque management-input signal B- signal low.
Anyone got any ideas? As I am fast leaning towards a gallon of petrol & a box of matches!

Hi colwint, I have exactly the same problem, over the last few days it has been taking a longer time than useual to start, once started everything is fine, no power problems or anything like that it runs fine. IT has just failed to start on me while out shopping, the engine i would say was warm but absolutely no start. had to get AA out to it and he sprayed a little easystart in to the air intake and hey-presto it fired up. ran all the way home perfect. Have you got any info on what might be the problem ?

Yes, he plugged it in and no faults showed up, but he said that as it is not Land Rover specific that is sometimes the case.

I'm gonna guess that you have an injector going down. Get it plugged in at a landy specialist to confirm this. Crank sensor is also another option but a squirt of easy start wouldn't rectify this fault so I think it can be ruled out. (unlesss it started by pure fluke).

Thanks for the reply, I have been having alook around and some other guys have had similar problems and it turned out to be What they called a low pressure secondary fuel pump. Any ideas on this, I will obviously have to get it into Land Rover but I am trying to find out as much as I can before I apply for the mortgage.
