2014-land-rover-lr2-new.jpg

I have a 2014 LR2 that won’t start. It turns over but won’t crank. My check engine light came on and it kind of felt it was misfiring so I replaced the spark plugs and it cranked, I was able to drive home. The next morning it did the same thing. Battery seems to be good but kind of like not getting fuel. I bought an OBD II scanner and got codes P008A Low fuel pressure, P0461 Fuel Level Sensor A, P2066 Fuel Level Sensor B, and P0026 Intake valve Control Solenoid Circuit. It has gas. Any ideas what this could be, did all the sensors go bad? Maybe bad fuel? I was driving most of the day on deliveries and filled up and used about a 1/2 tank before the issues come up.



The fuel tank may have fuel in it. But the check engine light codes are telling us the electronics involved in monitoring and possibly controlling the fuel are having an issue. A chance that there is a loose air filter intake hose or crack in it.

Is there a test for this?

Yes. A quick test would be to spray starting fluid in the air filter area. If the engine starts then you know for certain the engine was not getting the fuel from the tank delivered into each cylinder.

The Fix

Looking at the different codes for anything common. Looks like wiring, connections and or the fuel pump level sensor. The Sensor is mounted on the side of the fuel pump. My best guess would be a faulty fuel pump assembly. Replacing that should fix the issue assuming the engine wants to run on starting fluid. Here is the fuel pump that I looked up that will fit your 2014 Land Rover LR2 2.0L engine.

Would not start. It urns over but won’t fire up. I have changed battery, changed fuel pump, done injector test but won’t start. Any help please


You will need to determine what the engine is not getting when it won’t start. We have created a no start diagnostic chart for just an occasion.

2001 Land Rover DiscoveryI continue to lose coolant/water out of my coolant reservoir. I just put in a brand new radiator, water pump, and coolant reservoir, but it’s still leaking. It seems to be dripping off of the oil pan, but I know it’s not coming FROM the oil pan. Please help! I’m actually desperate to fix this.


RESPONSE

You will need to perform a cooling system pressure test. This will apply pressure to the cooling system and allow you to pinpoint the leak easier.

Weird Fault. When vehicle gets up to temperature, engine keep going in re-juiced engine power. also been connect with DSC Fault & HDC Fault, also might be connect to noise brake squeak. I know the is some fault with battery cable, as found by a Land rover dealer when I needed a new key fob done. Last serviced 7/11/2015. Any Ideas?

Hi. I have 2009 land Rover lr2. My check engine light came on and my abs light is on, the vehicle revs up but when I put it in drive it doesn’t go past 5 km no matter how much I push the peddle. Then after about a block I get Hill descent and traction control lights come on and I get acceleration. Please help.

Hi all,as i was driving my rover 400 tonight,it suddenly died on me..no warning,nothing.the only thing that was on,were the ignition lights,but they were very dim.Even when i took the keys out of the ignition,they stayed on.I looked under the bonnet and found the positive battery cable was loose.When i touched the cable to the battery,there was a clicking noise from the other side of the engine.I couldn’t work on it ‘cos of the dark and i had no tools.The car is still at the side of the road,miles from where i live.Any ideas anyone please….
