my wife has just come back from shopping,

the engine warning light, the one with the ! in it,

my wife said it also lost power when she changed to third, and now it wont start, its trying to turn over.

I know its a stab in the dark...any ideas ?

I just forked out for a new clutch,and fly wheel, then had an oil leak on one of the boots...now this...all in a matter of three weeks.

I can see this going early at this rate.....

its had a full health check from landrover when I had the clutch done.

also, this only started just after my wife had filled the tank...yes it was diesel she put in.

sorry...its a td4

I opened the bonnet and then closed it again as I might as well be looking at a blank page..cause thats all it means to me

I know that doesnt help much,

think I will let it cool down, the re-try just to start it tomorow, if it starts then Ill switch it off till monday and see if I can get it into my local landrover ???

edit to this...

the light is the engine malfunction light the one with the ! inside it...not just a ! symbol...which would be the handbrake...even I know that much :D

My Dads failed in exactly the same way. Turned out to be the fuel pump, I believe its located in the OS rear wheelarch
