rovers are known for headgaskets, get it tested ASAP, but it's most likely gone.

These Rover 200 are famous for the head gasket. If you have oil in the water you are two thirds the way to failure. If the garage say they have done a head gasket job ask for the job sheet or a bill if done somewhere else. If they can not produce walk away from the car.

Any half decent mechanic will double flush the system to get rid of ALL the oil in the water and oil in the filter housing is just lazy - if they had done the head gasket why did they not wipe out the filter box?
