Check out real-world situations relating to the Rover 75 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Relentless squealing brakes in '01 Rover
It's most likely caused by the pad material, or the discs have become glazed because of the pad material. Howard Reynolds of Race Brakes recommends TRW, which is a commonly found brand of pad or his own Race Brakes brand pads.
Stop that, rover
IT IS hard to diagnose problems like this without seeing the car and experiencing the problem first-hand. But the fact that changing the fuel pump hasn't fixed anything suggests its not a supply problem. I would look for an electrical fault, possibly even a loose or faulty connection. It could even be a problem with the ECU.
Attack of the tak taks
YOU can quickly determine if the problem is due to low oil pressure by having the oil pressure measured. A mechanic should also be able to tell if the noise is coming from within the engine and, if so, whether it's coming from the top of the engine or the bottom. If it's a light tapping, it's more likely to be coming from the top of the engine, possibly a tappet. A cracked manifold should be easily found on inspection; same with a valve or something in the exhaust system. If it is in the engine, the only way to determine the cause is to tear it down. Rover has gone from the market, but I would seek out one of the old dealers.
