Marriage and Land Rovers?

So i took the plunge guys, and got married yesterday! It was a great time and we both enjoyed every second of it.

Of course - this would happen to me though - I drove the 90 to the hotel (which was only 10 minutes from my house), so we could ride back in it the next morning. Go to start it up this AM and it wont fire! (of course she gives me the look "seriously, your going to have to fix this thing here and now!) Battery was fine just wouldn't start running. Ditched the rover, took a family members car and figured we would get it later (i thought it was the cold and maybe the glow plugs weren't working, since it was a rather cold night!)

Went back there with my brother-in-law and he pointed out that the return lines ( i think thats what they are, or maybe vaccum lines?) from the injectors look loose (the banjo bolts), sure enough they all were. Gave them all a quick tighting and it was all fixed.

Goes to show you even the monring after your wedding day, you may have to wrench on your rover!

Anyways - we're off to Barbados, St Martin and Anguilla tomorrow AM (EARLY). Will be ROTR when we get back!

sounds like you have a TDI I take it then. I just replaced those lines on mine. Order 2 feet of 1/8" ID viton hose and cut to fit each of the 3 sections. they are interference fit. you'll be set for the long haul.

Congratulations.

Hopefully this minor repair will start to set your wife's expectations for what is yet to come.

Owning a Land Rover can put any marriage to the test!

I also had to fix my truck the morning after my wedding. Fuel pump wiring was not good. Easy fix and funny having to do it in the drop off/pickup area of the hotel.
Congratulations!!!
