I have not heard that one. Got a new ECU last night. Once it stops raining I will put it in. On that note was there a speed limiter on the defender ecu. The guy I got the ecu from said there was and the one he gave me doesn't have it. Not that I would go faster than 75 in the 90 anyway.

Went to switch the ECU and noticed the little computer screen in car shows code 2. Not sure it is related or not. I think it means the power was interrupted.

thanks

ECU is in. Since the issue is so random not sure how long I need to wait to see. I will say my truck still does a stepped idle though.

Code 2 is exactly that, a power interruption.... should be cleared the next time you started it up. nothing to worry about.

thanks. So with both ECUS I have the slightly stepped rpm drop at lights. I haven't driven this one enough to say the problem is gone but as Ron pointed out it would not change the step RPM. Is that just the way some trucks are. I think I notice it more because of the borla being loud. My 110 I can't tell if it is doing it but it appears to not be.

Anyway that is beyond minor, I just want the erratic RPM that happens with the occiasional stall to go away. Next with be ignition coil I guess or fuel pressure test.

I don't think that is just how some trucks are, I have three other 90's and none of them have ever run how the one I'm in now is. It is at a new shop today and hopefully they can come up with a solution. Hope you have some luck with yours!

Well we are talking ab out two different issues. One issue (the main one) is the stalling and RPM drop at lights and kick back up. That is the big problem. The other issue is when I get to a light the RPM drops to about 1000 for a few seconds then goes to 800. Two shops have told me this is normal regardless of the ECU I have.

mine does that for the first 10 min. or so of driving, maybe a warm-up cycle
as for the other, have you changed the speed sensor? not sure if your symptoms are related to that part...
the throttle position sensor will through a check engine code if it is bad, so must not be that

Yeah not that. This issue happens after driving for about 20 to 30 minutes on occasion. Sometimes it stalls but more the RPM dropping to about stall and kicking back up.

You need to hook it up to a land rover computer and check all the sensors to see what they are reading. Not sure if any of these places have a 1994 compatible computer scanner. I know the one the dealer had you could see O2 function, temp sensor, TPS etc.

where does this magic computer plug in? If it plugs in by the ecu I know they havent done it because the metal kick panel was never removed.

strange...
long shot here, did you drop the gas tank to see if you have something in there, and did you change the fuel filter?
could be a corroded wire that looks clean
too bad you are so far away, I bet if Kyle got his hands on it he could fix it

I know our local LR Center did and may still have one. I got to see it in action about 10 years ago, really cool.

Because I am a crazy person about 2 years ago I had an issue where when I filled the tank with gas it would stink. I had the smallest of small hairline cracks by one of the tubes on top. So of course I replaced the tank, breather and filler tubes, fuel pump, and the fuel cradle (slick rock). I think the issue started after that. Fuel filter is new as well.

damn, these Land Rover things have not been cheap for you!
Looks like you have narrowed it down some.

My fear is the pump is bad. last thing I want is to have to drop the tank again. Well I used to really spend on the 90 when the 110 wasnt making me poor

I think fuel pumps are either working 100% or not. I bet there is a lose wire or pinched hose. Check all wire and hoses you can access, then drop the tank if you still do not see anything.

New shop could not come up with anything other than the stepper motor...so he pulled the "new" one the former shop put in and it was finger tight and didn't seem to fit right. It looked new but was made in Mexico? Does this seem normal? He put in a used motor and the truck is running fine, the new motor tightend down like it is supposed to, so I hope this is it.

Well it aint the ECU. My truck still has the issue. I pulled up to a light today, put my foot on the clutch and it was like I was choking the engine, it jsut wanted to cut out until I stepped on the gas.
