Hi one and all
I have read quite a bit on this site in the last week or so and i like it a lot.
I decided to treat myself to a Range rover 4.6 and found one that ticked most of the boxes, i have only had it since the beginning of December, it's a late 99 on a V plate, 4.6 with multi point lpg in dark green, it is so nice to drive and feels a mile away from my 95 Disco v8 3.9 lpg.
I did look into possible faults before i bought it, bad blocks, air suspension, airbags etc, but i love it or did until Friday.
I didn't use the car on Thursday, went to go out on Friday and it wouldn't start, the battery is a little suspect, but it turned over OK, i put my jump battery on as well but still wouldn't fire.
I then went through my DVD i bought and it said for not starting check start relay, well not much use that is then.
I next checked for a spark, ahhh found the problem w've run out of them, back to DVD and this site, crankshaft position sensor, right i will order one, it came today, i tested the ressistance of the old unit and the new one and they were the same
, so fitted the new one and it started
went in to have me dinner, came out to drive into town and the f****r wont start, no spark again, i have checked the fuses and relays and all looking very clean.
There are no fault messages on the dash like alarm/immobiliser, battery, alternator, only the airbag fault message that was there when i bought it.
Has any one else had this problem on the v8, i know there are postings on here for the diesel and others that the engine won't even spin over, but that's all i have been able to find.
Any help, ideas would be very much appreaciated, many thanks in advance.
