Is the Land Rovers engine haunted?

By NickLitten

March 13, 2013


After the last bout of engine work (replacing the crank sensor thing) Boris was nice for nearly 3 months… before acting up again. Although a lot less frequently…. Up until this month hes only refused to start once every few weeks… I’ve been just living with it.

Last month he had major sulk and left me stranded on several occasions… I left him at another LR specialist in San Francisco who could not reproduce the starting problem (imagine that!)

Luckily he happened to break down within an hour of me collecting him from the garage and they came straight out… saw him refusing to start.. plugged in a spark plug tester and it started first time. The same thing happened a few days later… plugged in a sensor and it started again.

I had a kind of “aha” moment…. so left the plastic cover off the top of the engine so I could get to the sparks quickly when it happens again.

he’s been good for 2 weeks now…. including a cross country drive back to here (Folly Beach, SC)

This morning it happened again..

But this time… is there a spark of light at the end of the long dark tunnel of Landrover ownership? (pun fully intended)
