I definitely was not able to tell if the diff or front shaft went but its definitely the old propshaft when i looked under the front. thanks RRphil for telling me to check that. well today when i check the car out i notice that grinding noise i thought it was. it was actually the car cranking and not turning over. the way i had the key in i thought it was turned over and making that noise. that was dumb of me
. My friend put a fuel starting spray in the mass air flow sensor and the car turned over and was quiet but didn't stay on long enough for me to try and put it in a gear. Now im thinking its possibly something with the fuel pump that cause the suv to have proper fuel consumption and shut off?? these range rovers are so confusing. Any ideas anyone? currently im searching for a good mechanic until then Im trying to figure it out. Thanks to all
If you turn the car to position before start, it should shoot power to the fuel pump... If you have your head down near the bumper under the gas tank, you should hear a high pitch whine noise, if you don't the pump isn't running = no fuel = no start. Crack open the manual, find the fuse for the fuel pump, replace it! Hopefully its that simple. Also don't spray carb cleaner in there to start it, that's not, "horrible," for a car with aluminum intake parts, but it could back fire and explode the land rovers plastic parts. Its also pretty horrible to spray that stuff at the maf, if you need to use it, pull the intake apart until you get to the throttle body, then spray it in there.
If it isn't an easy fix, download the rav manual, search the forum, super easy to find to download, hit me up if you can't... Pull the pump, hard wire it to a battery and see if it works, if not replace it. There could also be a slew of other things that I don't even know about to trouble shoot, are you throwing any codes, possibly a hard fault that cuts fuel for some reason? Have you checked codes yet? Maybe a fuel line is broken or a fitting snapped, maybe a sensor is unplugged... It could be a million things, keep us posted!
