Hi just been reading this article about td4 being hard to start , I have the same problem first turn after being stood  over night not a problem. But after driving no matter wot the distance, walk away for abit ,come back go to start it up and it takes ages before it fires but when it starts it runs fine . I've changed my glowplugs and its still the same . My next step is the injectors , the compression test I had done didn't show any problems.

Land Rover Discovery. I've had most of the common mechanical failures, altenator, water leaks, wiper failure, door/hinge problems, roof rust, floor rust, loads of electrical problems. Remember, I'm not a dealer or a mechanic, just an owner like most of you.


Owner of a Discovery. I've had many mishaps with our Disco but I still like this vehicle. Talk to a fellow LR owner instead of a dealership rep. I'm not in this for the money. I'm just an owner who wants to help others.
