Rover 25 OBDII test results advice, please?
Please could someone find it in their heart to offer a virtual mechanical numpty the benefit of their greater knowledge?
I purchased and ran an OBD II tester on my underperforming Rover 25, 2001, 62,000 miles, 1396cc 5 door hatchback, yesterday.
Results are as follows:
1 of 4 N/A
2 of 4 P0304 Generic Cylinder 4 Misfire detected
3 of 4 P0313 Generic Misfire Detected Low Fuel Level
4 of 4 P0313 Generic Pending Misfire Detected Low Fuel Level
025 Not Ready
H025 Not Ready
CAT Not Ready
Additionally, Iíve noticed misfiring, especially when climbing a hill or fully laden
My engine gets hot (smells of burning rubber/plastic)
Coolant is cold
Coolant leads are hot near engine but cold near head-tank
Heater blows but no (or very, very, very little) heat
For a while, I was having to top up my coolant on a weekly basis but for the past couple of weeks the level has remained stationary, at full.
Oil level seems OK (although I am aware that I do have a small leak because I can see evidence of it on the road, when I move my car to look).
Any and all advice would be gratefully received.
