Over the years I have found there is a range of perennial questions asked by novice or inexperienced (and even experienced) owners of the Rover SD1 Vitesse and Vdp Efi cars about the function of individual Efi system components and other key parts. Various workshop manuals describe the components to a reasonable degree but they sometimes fail to establish a context of failure analysis, repair or replacement, particularly in the light of age and current availability of spare parts.

Printing off the PDF's
A neat tip for printing the PDF's into an A5 booklet. On most modern printers select 'Properties', select 'Page Setup'. In 'Printing Type' select 'Booklet Printing' and OK out of the Tabs. Select 'All the pages' and click 'Print' to produce your handy booklet (ready to fold and staple) containing the selected PDF for convenient bedtime reading. It saves75% of your paper too.
The Diagnostic Challenge Continues
The above fifteen or so presentations describe the key components making up the Electronic Fuel Injection System fitted to Rover SD1 Vitesse and Vdp Efi.
Pulling all these components together is the Efi Operations, Test and Instruction Manual enabling Home Enthusiasts to better understand its Purpose, Function and Maintenance.

There are some very good web based collections of material all in different styles, sometimes hard to locate and catalog, variously published by individuals, car clubs or commercial houses but in my experience they dont always expand on funtionality or give "alternative" advice or options related to the component in question.
Whilst not definitive in every case, this archive of descriptions and explanations is based mostly upon my personal experience, forum advice from others and material accessible elsewhere on the web. It endeavors to go further into the nature of the components and their relationship to the system. Then, of course, the concise Rover SD1 Efi Operations Manual, pulling it all together in one user friendly document, is also still available.
