drove the rover to the supermarket the other day , that's the only part the rover played in this story. parked and the wife went and done some shopping while i sat in the car . while sitting in the car i noticed several things where happening , people had trolloies full off toilet paper. others had the usual stuff just 5 times the amount which is sort off understandable under the conditions but why the toilet paper , i'm talking shit loads off it like 200 rolls plus, trolleys that dont hold enough , people running around to do it twice because they didn't get enough the first time . i'm sitting in the rover slightly giggling to my self about the carry on and then the wife comes back!!!! things are not what you think inside the supermarket, wifey starts with ;they are mad they are buying stuff that they just don't need , i had to confront a woman that was protecting the toilet paper she had pushed the trolly across the front and standing in the way off the rest pushing people past . an older gent was trying to get some toilet paper that was being protected by this lady, wifey just pushed the trolly out off the way and grabbed some paper and handed it to the elderly jent and then turned to the lady and gave her a serve she deserved much to her dismay . it's getting beyond a joke , they are still doing it , just how much shit do these people have to clean up,one person brought $800 of toilet paper WTF.now it's the mince that's disappearing, at lest they have realized that all that paper is useless if you haven't got food, lets face it if you don't have food you don't need toilet paper!!!
how is it over their , has anyone noticed similar things in your super markets LOL i think it's hilarious having to employ guards to protect the staff from these clowns , they are brawlling in the iesle , shopping has never been so much fun i need to go more often.

quick question, where do you find the paint color for the rover??

16 May 2020 - 02:06

as stated it starts and then promptly stalls. so far i have removed and tested the TPS all good , removed maf cleaned and inspected removed idle bypass valve cleaned, appears to be working maybe ? also have good fuel pressure at all times. can you test idle bypass and maf with a multi meter if so how ?
this problem started as it would idle but not run , would brake down as you tried to rev the motor and then would go back to idle, now it will just starts and then stalls out and will restart and stall out again. i have used timing light to check that the spark is their all the time , sparks to the last turn so that indicates that it is most likely turning off the injectors . no alarms on the nano other than o2 sensor (yes it is a bit fumey) but was not a problem until now? dose the CPS turn off injection when faulty also can this be tested with multi meter. no alarms on dash or check engine light . it appears that my problem may be associated to something that turns off the fuel system. any help appreciated.

can you retro fit the heated rover seats into another car, or do you need the BECM to control them . if this can be done what parts are needed for the transfer?
