Also, try waiting a second or two between depessing the clutch and engaging reverse. This will allow the clutch driven plate to stop spinning.

My Mk2.5 is definitely more noisy than the wife's Mk1.5 - more road noise and a lot more wind noise. Very disappointing. Definitely a step backwards IMHO.

The throttle position sensor is built into the throttle housing and isn't changeable, so I've read, so would need to buy a complete throttle.


From what I've read the throttle position sensor is built into the accelerator pedal assembly. The butterfly valve in the throttle housing is driven by a servo motor to follow the pedal position. In other words it's a drive-by-wire system.


On the 1.8 engine the throttle housing is at the front of the engine.

Currently removed the waste gate actuator on my ZTT to check it is functioning properly still trying to figure out why it smokes like mad


I presume you've checked the MAF? Have you had a browse of the MG/Rover forum and done a search for smoky engine?
