The type of engine fitted to the freelander has a head gasket problem.it sounds to me that yours is on its way out as they only last about 60.000k if your lucky.you have water entering the cylinders thats why you need a pull to start.

I am having problems starting my car. I have already changed the distributor cap with a new one, replaced the rotor arm,changed the plugs and replaced the leads from the distributor. I still have the problem which is as follows, when I start the car in the morning I have to pump the excelerator quite a number of times just to keep it going. Somtimes there may be a small backfire but this doesn't happen on a regular basis. When the car is running for a while the problem seems to go. Can you give


This sounds like a faulty fuel pressure regulator. It could also be a clogged fuel filter. I would replace the filter first, as it is good routine maintenance anyway, and then monitor the fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the engine. Many auto par ... 1991 Mercedes-Benz 190

1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee will start then immediately die. I've replaced the Crankshaft sensor, ignition coil, fuel filter, battery, new plugs and wires, new cap and rotor, tried swapping the fuel pump relay with the auto shutdown relay and installed a new ECU computer. Before installing a new computer the jeep would crank but not start. After installing the new computer the car started right up. I then attached the vacuum hoses to the air cleaner assembly and now it won't keep running. Any ideas

My 1991 pathfinder has some issues, when I start it cold it always starts right up. At times when it is warm it wont start unless I pull out the fuel pump relay. My compression when warm is over 180 per cylinder. It also blows black smoke intermittently but not sure if that is from the sea foam I put into the tank. I changed the MAF sensor but I still get the ECU code for it, even reset the ecu. new plugs, cap, rotor, wires & fuel pressure regulator.


If you changed the maf sensor and you still get the code for it the problem could be in the wiring harness for the sensor. the ground in particular is important, but high resistance in the leads that report to the engine computer can also cause probl ... Nissan Pathfinder

1986 Dodge W150 with 5.9L(360) (105,000 miles on it)runs ok cold but starts to run bad once it warms up under load(regular driving). I'll be driving along and stomp the gas and the truck will fall flat on its face(works better if you ease the gas pedal down)!

I have a new carb on it, new plugs, coil(MSD), wires(MSD 8.5MM), air filter(wide open). only the dist and cap and bal. resister have not been replaced. th


Falling on it's face is almost always too much gas versus spark. You're going to find that your timing is off, or the carb isn't right. On these motors there's not much else that can cause it to fall out like that. ... Dodge W150
