2003 Land Rover Freelander Problems

Engine noise due to broken doors inside intake manifold
Broken doors inside the intake manifold, that vary the length of the manifold, can cause an abnormal engine noise.
Rattling noise from worn timing belt rollers
A rattling noise from the right side of the vehicle can be caused by worn timing belt rollers. These tend to fail and should be maintained to avoid serious engine damage.
Dirty air filter can cause mass air flow sensor failure

The engine air filter should be inspected more often on vehicles that are driven frequently off-road or in dusty conditions. A contaminated mass air flow sensor can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

It ran fine and I shut it off, and now it will not start. The starter cranks, but the engine won't turn over. I have noticed a minor oil leak since the problem started. I checked the relays, and they are all good. Please help with this issue.

Car starts fine but drive it, turn it off, it won't restart. (1 answer)

This problem occurs daily. Doesn't matter how far you drive, could be a mile or 100 miles. Turn it off and it won't restart. Turns over good, but no ignition. Wait 15 min. and it starts.
