A little late to the party there DB/DM. That's been posted for at least two years now.

I am not sure they are "facts". These articles are written by people attempting to sell their products and services. A great number of their write-ups are just attempting to scare you are exaggerate things significantly.

For all the people that are still asking about valve train noise, it still makes a good read.

Do you know how to use "Google"? Try typing in "Rover". I guess I'm in the minority. Ian's comment stands with me because they are a vendor wanting to sell you their product, their view of the world. So read with a little skepticism.

Is there a point somewhere in your personal diary?

Discobob has 25 posts, joined in April of 2010. He found the RPI site so what's your excuse? 87,200,000 hits and you found nothing....try the second page. Tough clicking a left mouse button.

Critical? Sure, throw some shims under your 4.0L pillars. One poster didn't even know how to drain his power steering reservoir so I'm sure these articles will incite more dumb questions than you do not capitalize your sentences.

Multimedia major, they must not include writing or is it your just too lazy? It doesn't bode well for your image my friend.

I use my cellphone too, wouldn't you know!

You typed three hundred and ten words, two words capitalized, zero excuses.

Priceless.

You are not fit for duty soldier.

FWIW I read the article; very little of it seems like a sales pitch. Sure there's a link or two to buy parts and or services but overall I found it very informative, and would likely return to it if I was rebuilding.

Wow!

Try to share information and this is what He gets! This does not impress Me as a newcomer!!! Does it matter how it is typed, really? Can you not read it still? I thought the goal of a forum was to share information on the vehicles We have come to love! Does it matter if the company is trying to sell their wares, they are still trying to help by sharing the info, if you don't need parts you don't have to buy them, wow what a concept!!!! It would be nice if people could just say "Thank you DiscoMike for trying to help with info."
