Post by jrb- on Sat Apr 16, 2011 3:51 am

hi, i have a freelander 1.8 petrol, it was driving as normal then the engine just died on me without warning! It turns over but wont start, ive changed the spark plugs and theres definetlty a spark there. Ive checked all pipes and hoses,to no avail, has anyone got any clues before i go to a garage. thanks john
