How do you install a radio in your Rover Metro if the wires are different?

You should be able to get a wiring harness from a locally-owned or small business type car audio shop that also does install. Usually the small businesses have better access to get the "odd ball" parts than do Circuit City and Best Buy. If they can't order it, ask one of the guys in the install bay if they know a way to "engineer" something. You would be surprised what they could do!

How long will a 1993 Rover Metro run for with a blown head gasket and can I do anything to Improve its odds?

I have a similar car, same problemIt's difficult to tell. I have a 1995 one with the problem, and it has done 1000 miles. However, it's surely doing it no good and I'll be trying to fix it when the weather improves.

However, you can never tell when it will go. Keep the water topped up, and drive very gently - it is more likely to go faster if you drive your car hard, an acquaintance who races stock cars managed to wreck his metro in a single race - with the accelarator floored most of the time.

Let me know how you get on.

All the time you are driving with a blown head gasket you could have oil mixing with water, water mixing with oil, recipe for disaster!

How can you get a workshop manual for a Rover Metro diesel?

In terms of running gear etc. probably best to get hold of a Haynes manual off of Ebay or try the likes of Halfords etc. - the generic manual for the Metro should include the diesels, just check the years it runs to first. Alternatively, if it is engine related, Rover did use the PeugeotCitroen Diesel from the AX 1.4 then latterly the 1.5 TU5, andd have a copy of that manual here.

How do you keep your Rover Metro L reg 1.1 from overheating?

If it has electric fans? If so, are they coming on? If the vehicle has a mechanical fan clutch instead, maybe it quit working. If all this is good then-

Start with the thermostat. After changing it, and it is still having an issue with overheating, then the radiator will be suspect as being clogged, and will need to be flushed. Depending on the age of your vehicle, it may be a good idea to go ahead and have this done. And the only thing left would be the water pump. It is very rare, but impellers have been known to erode away (metal) and plastic ones have disentigrated, or fallen off their hubs.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1992 Rover Metro?

Hi, the thermostat is located at the rear of the engine under the inlet manifold. There is a metal pipe which runs along the back of the engine and enters the main block on the left side. The pipe has two securing bolts, bolted to the engine block. follow this pipe towards the cambelt (left) this pipe leads to the thermostate housing. It is secured by three 8mil bolts. remove these also the two securing bolts and pull to the right the pipe will separate and the thermostat is located.

NOTE: you may find it easier to remove the inlet manifold out of the way (not remove) this saves you un-doing accelator linkage. plus it is easer to get to the pipe and thermostat housing.

Why is your Rover metro overheating?

I have a rover metro and have had problems with overheating for ages. first i thought it was loose pipes making me loose water but this wasnt the case. i thought it might be an idea to remove the thermostat to stop overheating but it had already been done so that wasnt it either. i thought maybe the fan wasnt kicking in so it wouldn't cool down the engine but there was also nothing wrong with that. in the end i decided it must be the head gasket. with a little help i took the engine apart and yes, it was the head gasket. i also needed a few other gaskets replacing along with a new water pump. im hoping the car will be finished by next week at which point it should run like new.

WARNING. this will be very expensive if you don't know the right people. probably better off buying a new car to be honest
