Just damn, my Defender finally left me stranded



It was enevatable after owning 4 different models over the past 17 years, without a hitch.

The specifics;

1997 D90 ST
Milage 71,000

I was traveling 45 mph and lost power. The oil light, battery light and service engine light came on. I coasted into a business and placed the vehicle in P. I double checked the fluids, battery cables and everything checked ok. I attempted to start the 90 and the vehicle turns over and attempts to start, then cuts off.

The check engine light stays on now.

I think the fuel pump is shot. I checked the fuse and it wasn't blown. Yes, I have fuel, I have only gone 135 miles on this tank.

Now I'm waiting for a roll back to take the vehicle to the Land Rover dealer in VA Beach. I just hope they don't have a gate blocking the entrance.

Oh, did I mention my doortops, and soft top windows are 1 hour and 45 mins away from me. + it's starting to rain.

sounds like a fueling problem to me. the big test is do you hear the pump prime when you turn on the ignition? If no, then there you go.

Yah, that sounds like a fuel pump. Do you have to drop the tank on those to get to the pump?
You probably do not have to replace the entire fuel pump cartridge, just the actual pump part. I just did that on the LeWB. Got a generic pump and filter from NAPA. Took out the cartridge, replaced the pump, had to recombobulate the wires a little, and put it back. Works great and was less than $70.
