Could be that one of the drive belts, when it's cooler, gets noisy. I could need tightening or replacement, and it's hard to say which belt. I would take the car to a shop for help with this--it won't be terribly expensive and it's good to have a check up.
This stands for Electronic Power Control, which means you have a trouble code relating to the engine management. You need to have the trouble codes pulled and have it diagnosed by a tech. It is a really general light, so it could be a large number of possible problems.
I'll be honest--if the shop can't answer this question on this hot, exotic car, please take the car somewhere else.
The clutch and the power steering have nothing to do with one another, so it's probably just a coincidence. The power steering pumps on Minis are electric, and they are a common problem. You will likely need a new one. For the clutch problem, I'd visit a shop for a diagnosis. Could be a number of issues.
If the motor is running with no trouble, then that points to the transmission. It's really hard to say without inspecting the vehicle, but this really sounds like something relatively severe. I recommend having the truck towed to a good shop and having the problem diagnosed.
Pay for a repair manual subscription. You need all of this detail . . . you may be able to find it in forums, but a repair manual is easier: http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online
Normally with these cars, as I understand it, problems like this are caused by a malfunction in the air suspension. These fail often and are hugely expensive to fix, and most owners opt to replace the struts with traditional non air-suspension parts.
This is probably an OBD 1 vehicle. The port is normally one one side of the steering wheel, under the dash, and is often behind a removable panel.
They've been getting better and better, but I still have heard mixed reports on reliability. 90s models are a nightmare.
