The Range Rover 

Diesel Hot Starting Fix


Range Rover P38 Diesel - 1994 to 2002

Suitable for the 2.5 diesel BMW engine


no more endless cranking when the engines warm or hot

Does your Range Rover have the infamous hot starting problem! 

Do you crank the engine for ages before it fires up when the engine is hot! 

This is a very common issue with the BMW (M51) 6 cylinder diesel engine which is fitted in all diesel Range Rovers [P38] manufactured between 1994 to 2001. 

The cause of this problem is general wear to the diesel distribution pump, a new pump is around £1200 or £700 second hand if you can find one. Your local Land Rover dealer would charge you close to £1500 including labour however, we can now offer you a simple do-it-yourself alternative. No specialist tools are required and it takes less than 20 minutes to fit. All you have to do is connect 4 wires and we even include the connectors.

This unit has been designed specifically for the P38 diesel Range Rover, manufactured between 1994 & 2001 which is fitted with the BMW (M51) 6 cylinder diesel engine. 

BMW and Vauxhall Omega owners

This unit will resolve the hot starting issue on any vehicle fitted with the BMW (M51) diesel engines, this includes the BMW 3 series, BMW 5 series and the Vauxhall Omega.


Here's a close-up view 

This is a timed relay circuit board. 

In brief, it takes the signal from the engine management temperature sender and routes the signal through a resistor, thus fooling the engine management system into thinking the engine is cold even when it's hot.

The result is that the glow plugs are heated & the fuelling is slightly adjusted enabling easy starting every time the engine is fired-up even when hot. As this is a timed relay circuit board the signal is only routed through the resistor for the first 30 seconds after the ignition is switched on, after that, the relay is then automatically switched off and everything's back to normal. 

Can I use a standard relay you may ask

Others are selling a standard 5 pin relay & a single resistor claiming this to be a hot-fix starting cure. Well, in the short-term your Range Rover will start on the button when it's hot however, all this does is fools the engine management system into thinking the engine is always cold. Result: The engine is continuously over-fuelled making the idle speed higher and fuel economy a lot worse, not to mention any long term implications.

I found an interesting forum on the 'BMW hot starting issues' 13 pages in total and well worth a read, it also confirms my views. Follow the link below if your interested.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
