Heres a nice 620 ti Turdblowa with a popped head gask! I would like to fix it up. http://cgi.ebay.co.u...emZ110474459587

On Christmas eve this piece of sh*t decided to fully live up to my expectations of Rover ownership and blow its engine in a fairly spectacular fashion. Steam, bubbling in header tank, temp gauge went right into the red sector despite it being -10 degrees outside.

Some people have a real downer about Rovers. -10 and overheating? Sounds like the coolant might been past its best, frozen up and clogged up the system, not exactly a design flaw.

Why not? The Atoz is a good little car, I'm going to hoard one away at some point, preferably one in that daft yellow.

http://cgi.ebay.co.u...emZ160389411122

I BOUGHT IT AS THE USUAL HEAD GASKET FAILURE WITH MIXED OIL AND WATER. I REPLACED THE GASKET BUT DID NOT GET THE HEAD SKIMMED AND THE VALVES WEREN'T SEATING PROPERLY SO IT CAME OFF AGAIN AND I FOUND A READY SKIMMED HEAD AND FITTED THAT INSTEAD. WHILE TRYING WITH NO LUCK TO BLEED THE COOLING SYSTEM THE WATER PUMP STARTED TO POUR OUT WATER AND AT THAT POINT I GAVE UP. IT IS NOW SITTING BEHIND THE HOUSE WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO FINISH THE JOB.BY THE WAY I ALSO FITTED NEW BOLTS .

Fuggin wars what a nightmare, I almost want to take that on as a challenge!

Indeed. Sure, K series lumps eat gaskets more often than I eat Walkers crisps but T series lumps are pretty good. I do wonder sometimes how many people blame the engine for the HGF when infact the coolant hadn't been changed in around a decade.

Exactly. I've had a lot of K Series engined cars and have never had HGF. Because I look after them. Changing the coolant isn't rocket science, and the proper OAT stuff isn't dear either.

My friend paid £800 for a 1992 Rover 414SLi in the late 1990s. It's approaching 400k now and it still hasn't had a head gasket fail.

That thing is about 2-3 miles from me, tops.If he's the chap who's got the K reg 1.8 in dark blue as well, he's a mega-dodgy driver who's still not got the hang of Marinas not having brakes.Not seen that one around.
