First off I would like to thank all on this group for thier wonderful information. It has made my first Rover experience very good,especially for troubleshooting. I had been stumped by my stalling and cut out problem since buying the truck a month ago. I had replace all I could think of, short of the fuel pump, with no improvement. I was getting ready to replace the pump when I read a post about the occasional ECU dry solder problem. I thought why not give it a try. So, I pull the ECU, open it up and re-solder the main transistor joints, although they did not look real bad. I had the the ECU out for about 45min. I reinstalled the ECU and the truck fired up, the check engine light was off, and I have not stalled in 3 days. Also the truck seems like a completely different vehicle. The power and acceleration is up dramatically and the fuel economy is also improved. So, the real question is- did I fix a dry solder joint or is this happy rezzurection from restting the ECU alone? (Starting a new fresh fresh fuel mapping from the factory default) I thought perhaps it could be from the reset. If so, I'm amazed. Even if I changed the correct part that was causing the fault would the ECU still behave as if I didn't unless it was reset? And therefore run the injectors the same (stall)? Fingers crossed that this fix holds.
