Dear Fellow Members,
I hope some of you can shed some light on a few predicaments that I'm experiencing with my Defender 130 300 Tdi.
I'll get straight to it.
1) My landi starts on the first kick when cold. but when I've been running it for a good hour, in traffic etc and I stop to buy groceries for example, it doesn't start. The starter whines and whines. So I let it cool down for a good 15 min before trying again. I usually just end up leaving it on, until Im done. Why is this? Battery? Starter? what could cause it?
2) I have a death wobble at 60km and above. Its terrifying actually. I have my suspicions that its the 35" Korean tires and heavy 15" steel rims. My undercarriage is new with all parts replaced. When I tried to use the standard 235 tired the wobble went away, but had a slight shake at 100km. I didn't really try to exceed that speed. I have spacers installed as well.
What could be the problem? I have tried to do balancing etc as well. I'm replacing the tires and rims soon, so i'm hoping it'll be over.
I'd appreciate any ideas.
