    Summit are great for MG Motor parts and can get them to you by next day at a really good price. The guy in the stores will also tell if the parts are the same as the Rover 75/MGZT which can save you a lot of money!

  • On my 2011 MG6TSE P0318 was caused by front wheel bearings. The nearside was quite noisy but when replaced the light still came one. After replacing the nearside bearing which wasn't noisy, the light stayed on! Only after looking very carefully at the sensor on the offside it was noticed that the tip of the sensor had a very slight wear mark. Replacing that sensor cured the MIL light but of course the bearing needed changing anyway. Front wheel bearing are the same part number as Rover 75, bur the sensor has a longer lead on the MG6 than on the Rover.

    The contacts here might be able to help with a diesel clutch.
    Does the diesel have a dual mass flywheel? If so that is likely to be part of the kit. Unfortunately the MG6 Diesel is a different basic engine to the petrol so you can't use the Ford trick of fitting a petrol flywheel and clutch to a diesel. Save about £500 on Mondeo or Transit!

    Is anyone else over 100,000 miles? Just gone over 101,000 on my 2011 MG6TSE.

    Euro Car parts have front and rear pads for diesel engine MG6 as well.

    If it is a Petrol, try Euro Car parts. They have Brembro, Pagid Eicher etc all at around £40 -£50. Alternatively try Summit MG in Dudley West Midlands, ask for parts and the guy there can usually sort you out. Great delivery prices as well for next day delivery. The guy there will also tell you if Rover 75/MG ZT parts fit.

  • Hi Maestroman. Thanks for the suggestions, and yes I think the 2 problems are unrelated, as the reluctance to rev freely started immediately after the coolant loss, but the misfire started only a few weeks ago. The car has a full MG Motor Dealer history so the fuel filter should have been changed at the regular service intervals. I have certainly paid for the filters! Surely a blocked filter would be blocked all the time and not just when the engine has come up to temperature? Plugs and HT leads were changed about 10 months ago, at the 90,000 mile service.

  • An update on this problem!
    I have now had the car connected to the MG Motor Diagnostic system at two different dealers and it doesn't show any faults. Would I be right in assuming that all the sensors are therefore working correctly and within parameter limits when cold and when hot?
    To add to the reluctance to rev, which is now closer to 4000rpm than 4,500rpm, it has started to slightly misfire around the maximum torque point of 2,500rpm. the second diagnostic session was after the misfire started and there are no errors showing up even for that. I've tried some doses of Forte fuel system cleaner, and at the same time running it on super-unleaded fuel but there has been no change.
    The temperature gauge shows a normal reading, and it is not losing coolant or using oil. Fuel consumption is slightly down by a couple of mpg.
    I am getting desperate as I seem to be running out of diagnostic options, so does anyone here have any ideas as to the cause of the poor running?
    Pete

    Hi there
    A long subject title but hopefully this will warn others and I will get some helpful suggestions as to what is current wrong with my MG6
    Firstly it is an early car (register August 2011) and now has done 93,000 + miles. It has a full service history. In December 2017 (and here is the warning to others) it suffered a sudden and total coolant loss, which was due to the steel pipe from the top of the radiator having rusted through from behind one of the plastic clips that hold it in place. So unclip and check the state of the pipe for any signs of corrosion and replace if necessary.
    I had the pipe replaces by my local MG Motor dealer, and the coolant loss had stopped. There was no signs of the dreaded Head Gasket Failure that plagued old K series engines, but since then the car runs fine until the coolant comes up to temperature. Once warmed up it is very reluctant to rev beyond 4,500 rpm. It will go though but the revs take a long time to build up further. This means it is easy to drive around, but nowhere as interesting to drive! Once it has cooled down it revs fine until it warms through again. It is not reporting any faults on the OBD2 port, and on its last service a couple of weeks ago, the plugs and leads were changed but if anything the problem seems to be slightly worse since. Equally I was told there were no fault reports so they couldn't diagnose the problem.
    My thoughts are that when the coolant was lost a temperature sensor was damaged and that is now giving the ECU incorrect reading leading a change in the fuelling once warmed up. But which sensor and where is it?????
    So can anyone here provide any guidance, thoughts or ideas as to what is causing the problem.
    Thanks in anticipation
    Pete

  • In the end I bought the clutch myself and had a local garage fit it. I think the 3 part kit was around £220 from Summit Garage in Dudley, West Midlands (01384 259555) who were recommended by MG Rover Mobile Mechanics mentioned in this thread. The local garage I used couldn't source a clutch for the MG6 through their usual suppliers, but Tazo Parts ( tazoparts.co.uk/collections/mg-6-parts ) also have them listed at that price.
    It might be best for you to source the clutch through one of these or MG specialists who have MG6 parts (I know Brown and Gammons do) and get it fitted locally but beware - if you provide the clutch the fitting garage will take no responsibility if there is a problem with the new clutch and you will have to pay again to have it taken out. My local MG Motor dealership wanted around £850 to supply and fit a new clutch so anything lower than that is to your benefit.
    Incidentally, the local garage that fitted mine reckoned modern clutch pates have a thicker lining on the flywheel side than on the cover assembly side. This is so when it slips it doesn't damage the flywheel.
    Hope this helps,
    Pete
