2001 Discovery 2 - Wont start sporadically

Asked by Dec 06, 2014 at 04:41 PM about the 2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II 4 Dr LE AWD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Need a little help. Engine will turn over sporadically. One minute it is fine and the next time it wont start or stall when sitting in idle at a light. There ore no codes when scanning. Fuel pump is working and pumping gas. I have previously replaced in the past 6 months the fuel pump and crank shaft sensor. Disco has run with no problems until recently. Any ideas would be appreciated.

1 Answer


crank postion sensor has failed, I know you replaced it but it could be bad again or not installed the right way.
