2005 Mini Cooper jerking at low speeds, only after it gets warmed up

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?

SOURCE: My Suzuki Liana 2007 (1.3L with M13A engine) jerks at low speed.

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!

Sounds like a tooth missing of the fourth gear, check trans sump for metal filings or pieces. if auto, adjust bands and check/change fluid and filters. as well.

Jerking accelerating


This may be normal but you can adjust your driving to reduce the impact. To speed up the warm up process of the catalytic converters, the power train computer holds first gear a little longer than normal. This causes your car to get higher in the rpm range than normal, at part throttle, which causes the hard shift. On your first drive, try NOT to accelerate while the car is in first gear--it won't take long for you to learn how far this is.

Automatic gearbox


A failed transmission component or a loss of fluid pressure due to a leak or worn parts.

Car jerking at low speeds and idle


Not fuel filter. Is your engine light on? Could be accelerator pedal position sensor. Does it do it only when you are accelerating?

Transmission Slight Jerking When Slowing & Accelerating


Have you changed the trasmission fluid and filter in your jeep lately, if not do so and that just might stop the jerking in your jeep, and if that does not do the trick you will need to have your trasmission checked out by a trasmission shop.

Engine jerking


It could be a broken engine mount. Some times the rubber bush separates from the steel plate on the mount and although it will still sit on the mount, when driving and changin gear the engine will **** as there is nothing holding it to the chassis at that point. I would check these as a first step then see how you get on.

Try a new set of plugs and an injection flush for the power problem.

Hope this helps
