My Navaro starts from cold every time, but stalls after

Resolved Question:

Hi my Navaro starts from cold every time, but stalls after few seconds, and will not re-start. Feels as though it has just been turned off. About 1 in 3 times. Tried different amounts of throttle. Fine once warm. Any suggestions? David.

I would very much like to hear from someone who knows about these cars, please. It may be a common condition.
Thanks David.

Hello this could be incorrect fuelling due to a faulty water temp sensor. If this is the problem then the ECU will be leaving the car constantly ' on choke' and not reducing the fuelling as the engine warms - so unplug the sensor and clean the contacts on both sides with some switch / electrical cleaner (not WD40) and inspect the wiring for any signs of damage to the insulation especially where it runs over other components and through the bulkhead- if this doesn't help consider replacing the sensor as they're not expensive
