Question about Mini Cooper
We have a 2005 Mini Cooper. It jerks slightly when it's in low gears (or speed), usually decelerating, and only after it's warmed up. What could this be? I've had someone tell me that I HAVE to get the transmission replaced because that's definitely the problem... but, maybe there's another solution?

I cant say I have ever even seen one of these, but lets start with this; Most vehicles can tolerate quite a lot of moisture (driving in heavy rain) but when it is 'flooded' with water, even garden hose pressure, that water is going to get into places it shouldn't. Your mechanic may may be going down the right path but try this first; remove spark plugs and replace if they have 50k or more miles or any are dark brown to black on the porcelain around center electrode. When you gain access to them and after turning them out about 1.5 turns, blow out water and/or dirt from around them with compressed air, this keeps it from entering plug hole. While you are using air, blow out spark plug wires/boots on both ends. As I first said, I am not familiar with this engine at all so I am not sure if you have a single coil or multiple coils. Blow out any water in any connections to these if possible. Replace boots/plug wires if they show any sign of arcing/excess wear (cracks,tears,brittle,torn) or more than 50k miles.When reassembling use a good quality dielectic silicone grease To help 'weatherproof' them.Make sure you did not damage or dislodge any other hoses/tubing/ect.. when cleaning.Hopethis helps! Please rate me. Thanks!
