Giving you a fantastic, as new Rover K Series engine. No need to worry about whether a replacement engine has problems too, this way you KNOW that all the important parts are BRAND NEW.

Please note: We now always replace the cylinder liners on this engine with new ones as these so often cause a problem.

Do I need to return my old engine?

Please note that this is a rebuild of your engine, or an engine supplied on an exchange basis (subject to availability of an equivalent engine).

There is a surcharge of £250 if you are not returning your old Rover K Series engine, or if your old engine is not suitable as an exchange unit.

Engines are suitable as exchange units provided they do not have any cracks or holes in the block.

How do I get my engine fitted?

For the complete hassle free service, bring your car to us – we can help with this if required – and we will remove your engine, recondition it and refit it all for you – the next time you see your car it will be on the road and raring to go!

Take away all the hassle of getting your car back on the road for just £345 for non-turbo models and £445 for turbo models, which includes:

  • Removal of your existing Rover K Series engine
  • Fitting of your reconditioned Rover K Series engine
  • Coolant flush – so your whole system is as clean as your new engine!
  • Coolant
  • Engine oil
  • High grade engine additive to give superior lubrication to your new engine

If your car does not drive and you need to get it to us to fit your newly reconditioned engine why not try:

  1. Phoning your breakdown recovery service, if you have one. These will sometimes transport your car for free, or at a reduced rate.

I’m Worried about overheating?

If you are still worried about your Rover K Series engine being prone to overheating why not let us fit the new modified oil rail. The modified oil rail improves oil flow and rigidity, which is particularly beneficial for heavy load vehicles. At the time of reconditioning we can fit a modified oil rail for only £70.

    I have a 1998 lotus Elise which runs the rover k series 1.8 engine. Can u clarify that ur engine is compatible?


  12. Hello Jon,

    Unfortunately currently we do not have a compatible engine for your Lotus Elise available for reconditioning. However, we can recondition your existing engine for you, the process will take approximately two weeks from receiving your engine, and we can arrange the courier to collect the engine and return it to you reconditioned.

    All the best,

  13. Thanks for the post. Actually I was looking for such a service only wherein proper technical details will also be mentioned. It would be more helpful if you can explain the difference between normal engines and K-series engine’s valve and piston works. Looking for a revert back.

  14. johan

    hi there
    I am looking for a rover 75 1.8t engine. would like to know the cost of engine and shipping to South Africa

  15. Hi Johan,

    A Rover 75 1.8 turbo reconditioned engine, including non-return surcharge, is £1,695. Shipping to South Africa is £395 by air to Jo’burg airport (if you would like it delivered to a different airport please let me know and I will get you a quote).

    All the best,

  16. Justin Steward

    I have a Freelander 1.8 litre 1800 , petrol 4 cylinder. I need a reconditioned engine. I live in Lusaka, Zambia. What would it cost? Do you also install the engine or do I have to find someone local to do it?

  17. Hi Justin,

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    A reconditioned engine for your Freelander, including non-return surcharge (it is cheaper to pay this than to ship your engine back to us) is £1,495.

    The shipping options and costs to Lusaka are:
    By air to Lusaka airport: £545
    By sea to Lusaka port: £495
    By courier to your door: £745

    We can install your engine but it would be very expensive as the price would need to cover our flights, accommodation and time as we are coming from the UK. It would be much cheaper for you to find somebody local. We are available by email and telephone if your fitters have any problems or questions.
