What are the typical indications of head gasket failure in the Rover K16 engine?
You either have a different manual from me or you've not read pages 5, 58 and 73 as thoroughly as I did.RallyElise said:Just FYI, there is no mention of not charging the engine by idling the car (actually, I usually hold the revs up and go through some rev cycles, but the engine is not put under loads) or the adverse impact of doing this in my manual.
I change the oil based on time, since I have only put a couple hundred miles per year on the car in the last couple of years. I am usually off rallying and I work out of my house.
It would appear that we have different manuals.Craigy said:You either have a different manual from me or you've not read pages 5, 58 and 73 as thoroughly as I did.
The "severe service" secion on p58 applies particularly to you, and it backs up what I said about more frequent oil changes.
If you've not got the same manual - give me a shout and I'll scan it for you.
