Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
These engines are a bugger to get started after having the fuel system disconnected due to air in the system .
What i suggest you do is tow start the Rover or use easy start sprayed
down the throttle body when cranking .Do short burst from the spray can when cranking too much will hydrolock and stop the engine turning .
Also Note very common on this engine that if just one glow plug is bad very hard to start. check plugs remove and test bench.
Still need additional information then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service, this way i can get back to you or suggest another expert if needed.
