Defender 300TDI Staring Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Looking for some guidance on starting issue.

Its always started on the first turn off the key until about 2 weeks ago where it took about 5 minutes to get her going.Then yesterday I had the same issue ( on both occasions I did get her fired into life.

However today no such luck ( battery now on charge due to excess starting lol.

I have changed the fuel filter but still no success.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

If 90..remove the drivers seat baseand check the fuel pipes at the top of the tank. Not unheard of for them to corrode and end up with pin holes. Which leads to sucking air not fuel.....

Leak-off lines on injectors too, leaks there will result in poor starting as the fuel drains back.
