If you mean the DLC socket it should be to the right of the drivers position low down under the dash. open the drivers door and crouch down looking under the dash - you will see a multi pin socket that is the diagnostic port.

Why will the crankshaft not turn full circle on my rover 75 2004 petrol

I'm in the USA, so I don't have experience on your model of car. But usually when the crank will not turn full circle, something is blocking it.
Such as a valve or piston connecting rod, or something in the timing chain or belt area.

Why will the sprocket on my rover 75 not turn full circle

At a guess I would say that you have a valve stuck open or badly bent and the piston is hitting it If you have a noise before it happened and that is why you stopped the engine the valve head could be broken off or the top of the piston has broken away. The only other thing to cause you problem is a loose con rod hitting on the crankcase

To buy rover 75, what are the common problem


The main problem to watch out for on these Rovers is that they are extremely prone to headgasket failure. This Rover uses a K series engine and headgasket problems are almost inevitable at some point during the engines life due to poor design of the cooling system.

You do not say what size the engine is on the model that you are considering but 1.8 engine is particularly troublesome in this respect.

Other things to consider is the fact that Rover have long gone out of business and spare parts and body parts will become more and more difficult to source over the coming years for these cars.

There are a few other known niggles with electrics and immobiliser failures but head gasket is the main thing to watch out for. There is an uprated headgasket that can be fitted which is said to minimise the risk of the problem occurring but even the cost for this as a preventative measure is likely to run upwards of £300 to include labour and fitting.

I have included this link which outlines some other key issues to look out for on this model.

Hope this helps and please do rate my answer. Many Thanks.
