did you ever figure out what the issue was on your RL? I am currently having the same problem. The car with continually turn over, but it will not start. Occasionally it was starting and once it does it ran just fine. But now it doesn't want to start at all. I am thinking that it is the fuel pump possibly going out. But I figured since you were having the same issue that maybe you could shed some light on what you may have done to fix the issue. thanks
