I have a new clutch and slave cylinder in a 2005 mini cooper non S and I've done the compress it and bleed it process and no air is coming out but I still have little to no pressure in the pedal, if I pump it I can sometimes get it to go Into gear on jackstands but it is undriveable
So I have this problem that when my Mini is idling or stopped at a light the RPM's will dip ever so slightly. There is no signs of stalling or chugging, but I get this little putter like symptom. It doesn't always happen, but it is pretty constant. If you are stopped it might happening every 15-20 seconds.

A little back story is that I have all 4 spark plugs and fuel injectors replaced a few months back and that actually rectified a more noticeable problem. This seems to be like the last little bit of my problem.

If you use a code reader I get no issues, I have no dash lights on, absolutely nothing indicating a problem. But I can tell its just not perfect. Not far off, but not exactly perfect.

My question is where do I start lol .. I've seen a couple mechanics and I have gotten no answers and I would love to fix it, but no clue where to start. Hoping you all might have some suggestions I could start with myself and conduct a little testing.

Really any advise is appreciated. TY
The heater never blows out heat unless you are sitting idling. The thermostat has been changed. The mechanic thinks it is under the dashboard.
There is no spark from the coils. It turns over but doesn’t fire. Just driving one day and got home and it wouldn’t start. I have changed the ignition coil. I reset the computer.
when i start my car in the morning the power steering work, the battery light comes on but it still works if i stop and shut off the car and restart again battery light stays on but power steering is hard. any idea why this is happening? oh and by the way i replaced the power steering pump but same thing
Engine turns over but won’t fire

Everything else works fine
Had a mechanic out, he plugged his computer in and found no faults, tried to start the car and it started first time
Mechanic said he had done nothing to it

Hi there,. I've owned the car for 4 years and this has never happened before. I started the car this morning, and at first I thought it might just be the fan playing up, as I put the fan speed on full blast and I heard a little "whirring" (like it was starting up) noise, then nothing, but I could feel heat coming through the vents. It's never overheated. My car also has heated seats, and they are now not working either. I haven't tried it again since I got to work, but any advice would be really appreciated.
steering pump is shot is there a recall on it
I'm one of the unfortunate JCW owners needing a clutch at 31k miles. Is it better to go with Sachs or mini. I don't know who makes mini part nor if they upgraded so is another OEM better. It's an expensive proposition and I don't know how much longer I plan to keep car.

When I reached highway speed, I heard a sound like a popcorn popper coming from underneath my car. I checked for tires and anything hanging off the car and found nothing. No fluid is leaking. No warning lights are on. No smells. It shifts and turns fine.
