Mini QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Maybe you can help me with. I’ve got the new clutch installed
in my mini and reinstalled the gear box to the engine. Before I put the sub-frame back in I thought I'd test the gear selections and see if my install is correct. I thought If I engaged a gear I should not be able to rotate the front disc due to
the engine drag but they still rotate, what’s your opinion, should the wheel disc rotate or not? I'm concerned my installation is bad.
i was driving on highway and heard an incredibly loud sound in the front of car, as if i had hit something or fell in a deep pothole, however the car didnt dip, swerve, tilt, or anything. but now it is lower in the front than it used to be!! any ideas whats happpened to my car? it still drives.
We have replaced the thermostat and also the water pump
Random problem. I just had spark plugs and ignition coils replaced. It had 9 error codes in computer but it still spits and sputters with engine light going on and off before it finally engages. The mechanic says it's because its old. I disagree, car has only 48,000 miles. Now what
the off switch is off and car is off. all the lights flash and I don't know whats wrong
The front end is not out of alignment. The car drives fine, but both of my rear tires are wearing evenly on the inside.
I had the water pump on my 2006 Mini Cooper S replaced this weekend and while driving it the next day the serpentine belt came completely off. The repair shop claims that they never touched the belt to replace the water pump and are asking $150 more to replace and align the belt. Does that sound right?
I am thinking about buying this as a used car.
It also g as began to over heat
It's been broken and not ever since they had it in for the recall .? It's been broke down and I have been in tears over the car and lost my job and I drove it for 1day and spent so much money on it and it is still broken down
after having it replaced by the dealer i hear noise coming from front passenger door area but only when coming to a complete stop.
Is there any way to manually close the panoramic sunroof on a mini cooper s 2007
I had a question about a MINI we recently purchased. We just bout a used
2009 MINI Cooper Clubman (automatic) with only 45,000 miles on it. It had
a full tank of gas when we bought it. We accidentally have filled it twice
with 87 octane gas (not realizing it was to use a higher octane). I then took
it on a trip to Pennsylvania last weekend (about 3 hours away). I noticed it
rough idling once I got there when stooping at stop signs, lights etc. When
driving home I noticed the same, and now have had the check engine light
come on. It does not seem to do it when I first start it but after running for
awhile. I now have had it stall when sitting at stops, and have had the
check engine light come on with codes of "Random Misfire" on multiple
cylinders. Could this be related to the gas? I got down to about 1/2 a tank
left of the 87 octane, and at that point filled it with high octane, hoping that
would flush it out, but have only gone about 150 miles since then. I am not
sure if I should try to run out that tank, or if I need to get it checked out. I have error codes P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303 & P0304
I was getting the oil light ON when i do a hard turns and when I checked it with the dealer, he said that the car was missing a couple of quarts of oil which normal due to engine consumption of oil between oil change intervals .. is it normal that a new car consuming oil ?! and is it normal common issue in Mini Cooper cars ?
what is the time to repair and cost
It started about a week ago. It sporadically blew blue smoke, small amounts when going at slow speeds, stopped for a few days, then started a couple days ago again; last night it's doing it while idling. Again, very small amounts. No engine lights. Either piston rings, valve stem guides, or PCV valve? What else could it be? I'd like an estimate before I take it in :(
whistle goes away when pressed slightly. Happens almost always, but less noticeable after a longer drive, whistle Chirping best describes the sound.
The car has only 15,00 mile on it
the problem is transmission oil in it burnt. check engine light is on and has transmission related codes. To replace the transmission in car will cost in the range of $2800 to $3000
is fair price ?

My oil dipstick broke in two with part still inside the shaft. Tried to grab out with tong but seems stuck in bend. How can I get it out?
Hello, I have a 2003 Mini S and it's a six speed. When I push in the clutch I hear a slight whinning noise. Once I drove for about a mile it quit. What could this be a sign of? I have 130,000 miles on the car. January I put it in the shop for a total engine rebuild and front struts to the tune of 5604.00. Any ideas?
today the light came on and when I shut the car off the fan kept running for about 5 minutes
Come out in morning and my window is down.....half way out a cpl inches...
Bf jumped the car after the battey died. Now the windows are unresponsive, the interior lights (colored,roof) dont work, and the blinkers dont work outside nor in. Everything else seems to be fine. What could this be. Tried the unplugging and letting it sit of the battery. Nothing. Tried banging on the panels in the doors. Nothing. Tried toggling the switch for the windows. Nothing. Checked all fuses. They are all fine. Not sure where to go know. Im thinking its becaused it was jumped but how can i fix it and how much will it cost or is there something i can do. Pretty handy myself.
Spent 11 hours replacing my clutch yesterday and po117 code poped up and my car is overheating. Sensor looks like. Not sure whats the problem
