Customer Question

Hello: 2006 Range Rover HSE having intermittent ignition issue. Has happened 3times now. Will not start, but turns over fine. Towed it in and next morning started fine and problem could not be replicated. Happened 1 week later and same thing. I left it dealer for 4 days, they checked everything said all was ok but there was a faulty EGR valve that gets stuck in open position, was changed and 3 weeks later it happened agin. Always happens after period of driving and parking at a store, etc. Never first start over night, starts up ok after 6 or more hours of rest...(Sam)

Hello and welcome to Just Answer

This is usually caused by a faulty crank angle sensor - the heat stops them functioning properly and when they cool down they are ok again for a while.

They are located on the engine block on the opposite side to the starter motor.

They run to about $60 on ebay last I looked.

Hello Again,
Thank you for your help. I hope This does the trick. Since I have little confidence in my local range rover dealership at this point, in your opinion is this a job a basic mechanic can do? As i would prefer to go back to my local mechanic i have used for past 20years, he is an old timer but a straight shooter.
