  1. mg zr engine cut out

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    throttle position sensor can be another issue, best to go to someone that knows the k-series, so many problems have the same symptoms, need to look beyond the obvious.
  2. Heater only blows hot air on high rpm

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    Late reply, but i believe you can get one of the older style pipes from the appropriate Rover 200 engine, they used a much simpler pipe system that doesn't have the valve
  3. Why was WTF banned ?

    Still not painted, might be happening before POL next year... shows how often i check into the forum now, used to be on for a few hours most nights. i do miss the banter, not quite the same on facebook.
  4. Why was WTF banned ?

    Community Help
    Wow, and this is one of the very reasons why members like myself have moved away from the forum. Unfortunately the facebook groups are now gaining unhelpful members too. Might end up returning to the forum for some abuse from you sometime 25x :P

  6. Minecraft!

    PC Gaming
    hey guys, you still going with that minecraft server? i'm now at the point where my computer has been offline so long i don't seem to be able to log on, and my minecraft doesn't want to update, it's so old. :lol: the map was awesome when i was on, everyone got on well and helped each other...
  7. locking, immobiliser and flashing dash....

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    might be worth checking the others just to be sure, i still can't figure why they thought cheese would be good as wiring. lol.
  8. Interesting reading indeed

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    might have to check my 2 on this. wonder if they just lump the Express in with the ZR's?
  9. locking, immobiliser and flashing dash....

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    have you checked the battery and fusebox cables? i've had a few issues where the poor quality cable has corroded and essentially burnt itself off the connecting bolt, had one come off the battery, one off the starter, and one from the slam panel didn't look too clever. might be that a cable is...
  10. Side light problem

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    do you have LED sidelights? if so, they might be fitted the wrong way, spin them the other way in the holder and try again if they are. if standard bulbs, it sounds like there are some dodgy connections, very strange for both front sidelights to stop working.

    wow, that is a STRONG bonnet.
  12. green relay, right side rear light

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    think the relay was moved for the mk2, most likely the boot loom is at fault though, not the relay. as you open the boot, there are 2 flexible rubber grommets between the car body and the tailgate, passenger side is for the water pipe to rear washer, driver side is electrical. the grommet has...
  13. Uprated ignition system

    MGF and MGTF
    yep. mems 3 is wasted spark, MGR never got to the point of individual coils, which is a shame. would have opened the engine up to more tuning options.
  14. Is this normal?

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    sounds like the mechanic couldn't be bothered to flush out the HGF gunk. mine rattles occasionally, but if i blip the throttle when it's sat still it goes quiet as soon as it hits 3000rpm, the oil naturally drains down out of the engine, so it is constantly pumped up from the sump. should take...
  15. Oh no!!!

    MG ZR / Rover 25, 200 & Streetwise
    must be pretty rare if it's being fixed, even the BRM's get written off for less.
