Rovers HG Lotus HG

Your K series Powered Lotus,

Did Lotus Develop a gasket or solution to the K series gasket problems, just interested as rovers can now be fitted with MLS gaskets to prevent hgf for as long as possible.

Any info would be useful !

Believe that the work was done by Rover to address the (relatively) high number of Land Rover Freelander 1.8K failures… ie. high loads from cold.

What does the guarantee state as ‘as long as possible’ in terms of miles or days

Maybe it’s call the ‘failure guarantee’


there has been so much written on this subject - it would be near impossible to precis it…if you search on hgf, temp and read all the king k posts, you’ll be right up to date
