    I am sure this has been covered, but my exact issue can't be found with the limited search. 3.9L in my 1991 RRC wants to stumble and almost choke when starting up warm. Truck drives, idles fine otherwise, but wants to choke when cranking up after it's been driven for a while and shut off...

    In my 2 cars, an Audi and a Volvo, I have remote start which I can do from the key or my phone. I use it all the time in the winter to get the car warm, and summer to cool off, before getting in. Really the greatest thing ever! My Volvo remote-start is from the factory, Audi is Drone mobile...

    Hello, two questions today. I was going to do a compression test this weekend but I cant get it to turn over. It turned over twice then nothing. I looked in the manual to see if there is a starter relay but it just shows that there are three relays behind the fuse panel. One of the relays does...

    For once, I'm not posting a cry for help, just wanted to put out some info others may find helpful in a search. Working on my 1991 LHD ROW 200 Tdi. So I recently have been having some starting woes (other thread here) so I decided to put in a new starter (3.1 from Robert Davis). I also put in a...

    Hello Everyone, I am hoping someone can help me out. I recently had a 1987 Land Rover Defender 110 2.5 Liter Diesel pick up truck restored. The starter has now gone. Where can I locate/buy a new complete starter. I just want to swap out the old for new. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Prior to trying to pull out my starter today I read a bunch of stories about how much a PITA the bolts were going to be. In preparation I removed the down pipe from the turbo exhaust and moved the oil supply line for the turbo. As i started this I found that the down pipe seems to not be fully...

    Hey Guys, having some trouble finding the RIGHT starter motor for my car. I have a 1991 D90 200TDI. I ordered one from LDParts in the UK and its about 1 - 1.5 inches longer than the one that was in there and it doesn't fit but they seem to think it should. Anyone have this same issue? Any...

    My starter went out last weekend and I've been waiting all week for my replacement to ship from England... :whistling: When I had a DeLorean, of course the local auto parts stores couldn't look up my car parts (even though DMC-12s were sold in the US!) so I would just tell them that I had a...

    Drove my 90 twenty miles. Ran perfectly. Parked it and came back 1.5 hours later and it ran perfectly for the twenty miles home Parked it out front and tried to start it 20 minutes later and it wouldn't start. It would maybe turn over for a second then choke out. Let it sit an hour and it...

    Strange thing - tried to start the 110 and it won’t start. It did start just fine yesterday. When we turn over the key the truck beeps twice. Wondering if this has happened to anyone and whether they can help me diagnose it.

    Yesterday after driving my truck to work (~20min drive, truck ran great, no signs of trouble) I got back in it that evening to leave and it cranked but wouldn't start. I checked for fuel pressure at the fuel rail via the "bicycle tire valve" to find no fuel squirting out with the ignition on or...

    First, I do not get the chance to drive my defenders daily...after about 4 weeks of down time, I needed to run a bunch of errands in and around Belize City. This involved starting and stopping lots of multiple times. Truck fired up normally the first time with barely a turn of the key, drove...

    Vehicle: 1990 Defender 200 TDI Drove the vehicle all yesterday and it ran fine. Tried to start it today and it turns over just fine, but will not start. Threw a gallon of diesel in the tank and still doesn't start. I am noticing that when I turn the key today the dash lights (oil, battery...
