    I fitted a new fuel pressure sensor and wiring loom but was still having problems then the reader came up with a fuel pressure regulator control valve fault so I fitted a new one, the car started and we took it for a run and it completely died it turns over but won’t start I also fitted a new low pressure pump and filter just in case. I’ve had this freelander for about 8 months and have only done about 300 miles on it as it’s contstantly
    in the mechanics garage please help

    We would need a lot more info to help diagnose?
    Model, Year, History of what happened and what was done?
    Have you searched for similar issues on the forum and gone through the various threads? There are loads of threads here for guys with cars that don't start and the various causes.
    I'm not saying I could help but the guys that could will need a bit more info.

    Have you put a diagnostic tool on it? Anything that stops the engine running should flag a code. It's pointless changing components willy nilly until a thorough investigation is carried out.

    There is one fairly commonly problematic and inexpensive component - that seal on the high pressure side.

    @Nodge68 - what’s it called? It’s a pain to get the bloody thing out.

    But nonetheless could still be piddling into the wind

    The High Pressure Regulator O ring. ;)

    And yes it'll stop the engine from running, although normally on from starting. Often once the engine is running, the seal holds well enough to keep it running. If however the HP regulator fails, then the engine will stop. It would flag a code for this fault though.

    No. There's only one pressure regulator. Maybe the plug wasn't fitted correctly and it's come off?

    This post reads like we already know about the car and the problem...

    Does your reader give any live data? Fuel pressures high and low, and crank/cam signal yes/no would be very useful.

    Any lights such as check engine or immob?
