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

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
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?
today the light came on and when I shut the car off the fan kept running for about 5 minutes
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
Car received a tune up for malfuntion in two piston not releasing, now I am replacing the clutch. But it seems that the Brake light won't come off nor will the icon of the car on a platform. The machanic does the logistic test and nothing comes up. What could it be?
Is there a gasket below the trans. cooler? The hose fittings are tight and not leaking. Thanks
Brake check engine and Eml light is coming on
My daughter's car was making an unusual noise and so she brought it to repair shop. It was 3qt low on oil! Repair shop added oil, drove it a bit (surprised it sounded and felt fine but there were some error codes) and recommended brake job and water pump replacement (leaking) along with a thermostat replacement. Started the car in the afternoon to bring it in for water pump replacement and it sounded so bad he didn't start the work and will do some more inspection (remove valve cover) but the engine will probably need replacement. No obvious oil leaks, oil changed and checked regularly. Issue may be with reading the dip stick? Does anyone else have this issue?
I have a 2006 mini that I just bought and I can't figure out how to set up the Bluetooth so I can use my phone /navigation through the stereo. Any suggestions?
acted like it was out of gas, but after I pulled over a few min. later it started. It stalled again going about 40 mh. It started again . I drove home and here I am.
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?
I hit a pothole yesterday (not a very big one in my opinion). Immediately, my car started running rough and died within a few seconds. Now it won't start. The starter engages but it's as though the engine is either not getting fuel or isn't getting a spark. I read that there is a collision sensor that cuts the fuel supply and that sometimes the sensor gets jarred and needs to be reset. Is this a common problem or is there another common problem that leads to my problem?
80,000+ miles. Ticks faster as I accelerate
2005 Mini Cooper S, mechanic found a leak in the AC evaporator, quoted $2400 to replace. Car's got 160,000 miles. Is it worth it?

It into the diagnostic machine and it is coming up that the brake fluid level is low but I opened the bonnet and looked in the brake fluid is full.What could it be
Yellow check engine light. Tried erasing with code reader could not remove.
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.
I have a leak coming from under the dash on the passenger side. I have determined it is NOT the windshield, but likely coming from the overflow tubes that originate at sunroof area and feed through. I want to know how difficult it is to replace this item and what the approximate cost is for shop labor and the part. This is only on the passenger side and only happens when the roof gets wet hence the sunroof tube guess. My Mini is in very good condition, with approximately 40,000 miles on it. Always garaged and very low miles for the year of the car. Thank you
