2009 Mini Cooper S Clubman QuestionsRefine by vehicle
on at 80,000 miles seems to be running fine but do these cars start to have major problems at 80,000 miles
seems to be running fine has been burned a lot of oil
The only way to get them off is take off the batter terminal. I called the Mini dealer but they couldn't tell me.I believe it may be an electrical problem and the flashers are a warning?
do you think it could be the timing chain tensioner?
It starts up right away and runs perfect until I come to a stop then it quits .It starts right up again no problem but then when I come to another stop it quits
The dealership says it will cost $1950, which is "parts only" - they have previously (within last 11 months) repaired the timing chain by replacing/installing a timing chain tensioner. Now they say the whole thing needs replacing. My car only has 52,000 miles. They also say the water pump is leaking, that the seal is loose. I don't trust them.
