Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Land Rover will not crank after a 30 to 45 minutes of
driving. I will have to wait for 30mins before it crank and
sometimes with a smell of fuel. I've changed the crank
censor. Any advice?

Sounds like the spark plugs are not firing. When was the last time a tuneup was done ?


Last year


Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.


P1607, p0500, p1193, p1178, p0460. Which one is directly the cause of my problem please?
