Re: Starting problems again!!

One of my K series engined tourers has a love of rotor arms, the new replcements don't seem to last long I,ve taken to carrying a spare in the car along with a socket to change it. Ironic that in my original tourer which I still have, it's done over 240K on the same one.

Re: Rover 216 died

Sounds as if one of the main cables to the battery might have done its self some damage. Check the cable ends and battery terminals themselves for damage,follow main cables for both +tve & -tve to see if they have any breaks along their length.Do you have side or headlights working?

Re: Rover 216 Cabriolet 1998 Fuel Pump Relay

Most likley the rotor arm one of my K series engined seems to go through them I can only assume the are of a poorer quality than the originals.Starts by the occasional misfire under load and gradualy develops and eventually engine cuts out and won't re start.
