    Unhappy 03 Freelander wont start!!

    Hey all,

    First post here, and already having issues. My gf owns a 03 Freelander and as of last week it wont start anymore. When I put the key into the ON position, you can hear the fuel pump engaging, but when I try to start it, it cranks, but no ignition.

    Had a check engine light, pulled the codes to be P1160 and 1472. Looked up on quite a few forums and spoke with someone at dealership. I thought he was pulling my leg (as they are trained to do). He said if its a 1472 (code relating to the variable intake system), that the entire intake manifold would need to be replaced. Part costs 1200 alone!

    Can anyone provide any assistance? Gf needs the car to run. Is it even worth fixing? I'm mechanically inclined so if the car needs to be fixed I'll probably do it myself but I would need engine diagrams and a repair manual. Do you know where I could get my hands on the details?

    Thanks in advance!

    - Kevin

    I guess there is something problem in the engine. If you cant fix it, better find someone else to do it.
