Default HELP! I can't get it running!

I am a new member so I'm not quite sure how this works, but I'll give it a shot. My 95 Disco needs some much needed help. It was running fine and then sat for a few days without being started. The next time I went to use it, it turned and turned and then sputtered to life. It ran fine the next few days and then it sat for a few again. This time it cranked and cranked but didn't start and now doesn't turn over at all. I tried jumping it off of my wife's car, but it still wouldn't turn over. I have had the starter rebuilt in the last year so I don't think that's the problem, but I don't think that there's enough juice to turn it over anymore and am thinking that I may have burnt out the starter by cranking it too much. Other than that I am thinking that I am having vacuum line issues? Has anyone else ran into this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Replace the battery first.

When working with GEMS vehicles. Never try to locate a misfire by pulling plug leads off - pull the injector connector instead. Otherwise you can blow up the ECU.

Secondly never swap ECUs between vehicles to test them, because both vehicles and ECUs may stop working, and you'll have to have them all reset by a franchised LR dealer (ouch!).
