  1. MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Hi everyone, New here but always reading! So here’s my problem; I have a very well loved Rover 25 SXI step speed. I started noticing that the ‘transmission warning light’ kept popping on and off car still driving. Then I lost power on acceleration but managed to creep home safely. Just seemed...

    Evening all, I have just been out in my relatively new (to me) MG TF 160 VVC. The engine started making a inconsistent knocking noise (see attached video) after I sped up on the motorway. Its made it home but I'm reluctant to drive until I have a semi-confident diagnosis. It subsides upon...
  3. Introduce yourself
    I own a Rover 25 1.4l 16v 103hp (naturally aspirated petrol engine) from 2003. I've had some issues recently, and I don't know if they're related to each other, so I'll start from the beginning. Since the end of November 2018, I've noticed that sometimes my car intermittently losed power at...

    Hi guys :) So finally after all my toils the car went in to the garage today to have new timing belt, tensioner, cam seals (were leaky) and water pump (also leaky). Just got it back from the garage and drove it round a bit, and a new noise has appeared. Sounds like a squeaky whirr (if that...

    Sorry in advance for the long post, want to make sure you have all the info for this one. So I pulled into tesco petrol station at about 2am this morning. Realised after I opened my window it was making a new noise... not a good one. Popped the bonnet and had a look. It was a sort of rapid...

    I must have spend about £1500 have my whole engine rebuilt and put back together. It was the moment of truth yesterday when the mechanic fired it up for the first time. I’ve done 50 miles on the engine so far and it sounds like a piece of ****** and i’m embarrassed to drive it. Here is a video...

    working under the bonnet today and i could hear a high pitched noise, not dissimilar to the noise you hear when the doors open with the lights on, just higher pitched and quieter. The keys were on the seat. it was coming from the plenum chamber area, to the right of the vvc control unit...
  8. MG ZT / Rover 75
    Please help. I recently bought Rover 75 1.8T (2003, pre-facelift, 53.000km, LH). Just yesterday, after coming back from work, I noticed some strange noise coming from under the bonnet. The noise is like constant tick-tock, but very noticable and vibrating. I looked and listened and traced it to...

    I got my car a couple months ago and ever since the brakes have squeeled quite badly. They dont even have to be applied and they make a horrible noise! So anyway I took them off and put some grease on the contact points to try and help and it has done very little. But I did notice the screws...
