Re: Rover 420i cutting out when cold.

Well its been long enough now and had enough cold mornings to say touch wood but the coolant temperature sensor has fixed it! Hasn't cut out since the new one was fitted nearly a month back. Still a bit lumpy for the first few minutes but I can live with that.

Re: Rover 420i cutting out when cold.

Had another look there for coolant temp sensor, looks like the part number is ADU7161 and fits every austin/rover ever made from maestro o series to 200 k series. Has anyone ever had any problems for the cheaper ones from eBay? Ail fit one see if cures the problem. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lemark-...

Re: New rover 420i owner

Hi, thanks for the welcome. Its not the parcel shell as I have drove with it removed and the spare wheel is properly secured. It sounds trim like, coming from passenger rear head height!
