Would a Rover dealer not be able to help you out with an oxygen (lamda) sensor?

Hi,
Im not convinced that a Lambda sensor would cause the fault you have. Most ECU's will only adjust the mixture by around 5% to correct for the AFR from the Lambda sensor. To prove it is the sensor you could find the wire from the sensor to the ECU, disconnect it from the sensor and put a 0.45V supply on it. This is the voltage for the stoichiometric point, that the ECU is trying to adjust the mixture to. If you still have the same problem then its not the fault. You can use a 1.5V battery and a potentiometer to get 0.45V.
Or you could read the voltage from your sensor, but they do tend to jump around a hell of a lot so it might not prove anything,
