1994 NAS D90 Hot Starting Issue


New member
I need some help with my Defender. Recently, I noticed that it was getting difficult to start while hot, and the other day it stalled at a stoplight and wouldn't restart. After pushing it to the side of the road and letting it cool (20+/- minutes), it fired up and got me home. I've searched the forums and checked the fuel temperature sensor, coolant temperature sensor, coil and fuel pump; but none of these seem to be the problem.

Now I'm hesitant to drive it for fear of getting stranded.

Any other suggestions?

Finally got around to changing out the ignition module and that appears to have solved the problem. In hindsight, had I know the PITA changing the module was going to be, I would have installed the relocation kit at the same time.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Grab a spare and throw it under the seat, I hear the quality of Available amplifiers is pretty bad these days..
