Rover 416 R reg stalling problem - courrierdave
Does anyone have any ideas on my Rover 416 k series engined rover its a 1997 on a R plate with 91.000 miles. It was stood for 3 weeks earlier in the year when I restarted the car it started fine but after 20 seconds cut out I restarted it the engine then ran lumpy and keeps cutting out when returning to tickover. There is no missfire on revving the engine and no smoke. I have changed plugs leads e.t.c but nothing makes any difference.

I would check out the vaccum pipes to inlet manifold. also check out throttle body for any air leaks..you mentioned prob occured earlier in the year. have you been trying to get started over several months?

Thanks for the reply I will have a look at the things you suggested. the car starts first turn of the key everytime but tickover is lumpy you can rev the car and would never know that anything is wrong but when returning to tickover the cars tickover will be between 500 and 1000 rpm and more often than not will stall.
This happened after the car was stood for 3 weeks whilst I was on holiday when I returned to the car it started first turn of the key I left it ticking over for 20 to 30 seconds (tickover perfect) it then stalled when I restarted the car there was this fault I have just been driving around the fault but now the mot is due and I have to get it fixed
