Hello, pls I have overheating issues with my Rover 75. I'm thinking of replacing the whole engine with a honda or toyota engine. Is this possible?

Nope, manufacturer specific. You will be limited to whatever options were available from rover.

Are you sure the motor is bad? Did you have a leak down test done to confirm?

The head gasket was bad. That was replaced and after that the oil turned milky again. White smoke comes out at d back. Suspect a cylinder head crack. The thermostat was also removed. Pls note dis fault was noticed in d UK.I shipped the car that way to Nigeria, thinking it will be an easy fix as I had d intention of changing the engine to that of a honda ivtec or toyota camry 2.0. Ive also been advised to change d radiator to double cell as its now in a hot region. Pls ur expert advise on this is highly valued. Thanks

First, put the thermostat back in. That alone will damage the motor.

I agree with the cracked head.
