Thanks although we got the belt and tensioner changed is seems that some of the shreaded drive belt has maybe interfered with the cam belt and cocked up the timing so that could have caused ita own world of problems if am honesh i think we will just be selling the POS as spares and moving on we have put on 50000 mile in the 2 years we have had it

My brother being a rover collector has offered us an extremely low milage mgzr diesel with ony 1200 miles on a 54 plate

Change the cam belt and aux belt before you start using it and save yourself a load of hassle,service too !
