Question about 2000 Mini Cooper
I have a 1998 mini when i start the engine it ticks over just fine,
but when I drive the the revs are high about 5-6thousand could my throttle cable be sticking l have just replaced it.
or could it be throttle body spring ???keeping throttle open.
engine 1275 metro su carb 1'' 3/4 k&n cone filter lcb exhaust
Worth looking to see if the piston is sticky in the carb dashpot. Remove the air filter and lift the piston up with your finger - does it return smoothly and go right to the bottom? If not then remove the dashpot and piston, clean up with cellulose thinners or carb cleaner and replace. Tighten the screws evenly while checking that the piston keeps returning - if there is a little stickyness then tap the dashpot with the plastic end of a screwdriver util the piston returns smoothly and then tighten the screws fully. It's also worth checking the mixture because a non standard filter is fitted.

You definitly have to check the cable installation/adjustment. Remove the air cleaner and with the engine off, advance the throttle to full open and then let it snap closed. The throttle plate should come completely closed. Also check your linkage to make sure that the progressive linkage is not hanging on the high steps oft the choke linkage. This could also have been affected by the cable installation.
Question, did the problem occur after the cable installation? If so, this is the area of your problem.
