The "miss/studder" seems to happen in all gears. If I "floor" the accelerator, the missing/studder will immediately go away. Any ideas what the trouble is? Bad gas?...or something more serious?
the drives side door it wont unlock nor will the handle on the inside work so I can get out. what parts do I need to fix my problem?? Ive had nothing but problems with this car. Seems like now everything is messing up on it. Alternator, power window, glove box latch broke, & theres more small things but these products aren't cheap. thank you.
Could it be a relay or fuse and if so where would it be located?
The repair shop says the master and slave clutch cylinders need replacement for $3,100.00. Is this too much?
Car has no sun roof and the seals on the door look okay. The floor behind the driver seat is soaking wet plus the seat belt. Any ideas
I have a local tech who can "retrain" the transmission if I can get the software to do it. Otherwise, the nearest dealer is over a hundred miles away (one way). Is there a source available that will sell me the software to do the transmission reprogramming? Thank you.
It worked fine until my grandson took it for a drive. Could he have done something or is it just one of those things. What can be done?
How do I repair the rear seat releases and were there any recalls on the 2003?
Haven't looked anything up yet but wondered if anyone has any tips? Should I just shoot myself? Should I bring some dynamite? Thanks. Wisecracks/ jokes about the car are OK too , since it isn't mine!
Looking under the bottome of the engine from the ground there
is a fly wheel that keeps starting and stopping. It is making a noise and is also loose. What does this control and should I replace the entire thing or what? Is this a easy do it yourself fix, or do I need to take it to a repair shop?
I took my car in for an oil change and was told that it needed to have the transmission changed because it was leaking and since it is a sealed transmission they would have to change the whole transmission. my questions are: do Mini Coopers all have "sealed transmission"? does the intire transmission have to be changed? has anyone else had this happen with their manual transmissions?
is a manual transmission every a "sealed for life" transmission?
