Re: ricky's rover sterling

first decent run, down to somerset, it had an oil change at the time of the mot but it was smoking now and then on start up and misfiring when cold, so oil flush (sol-x) driven on for a couple of days... almost straight away no missing and no smoking... all good on the run with a proper caning along...

Re: Rover 100 Knightsbridge (1996)

I think all k series get a bad press for no reason.. other than rover trying to save money with cheap parts... when the good gaskets are fitted properly, issue solved... regards ricky
