Question about 2002 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 2002 Mini Cooper Hardtop and I am having some issues what I think may be my clutch. This problem just recently started. When shifting up is when the issue always occurs. I can shift from gear to gear and slowly apply gas into the new gear, however when I need to gain acceleration and I apply the gas a little heavier the car will over rev and then eventually grab the gear. Could you tell me if this is a simple fix of transmission fluid change which may need to be done or something worse?

Sounds like the first gear syncro is going out you could have the trans rebuilt or the most expensive route is to replace the trans all together.

SOURCE: CVT transmission fluid mini cooper 04 automatic

The manual has a mis print, according to MINI the correct oil to use is ESSO CVT Z2L 799 fluid and there are no other manufacturers that use it so sorry but you will have to buy it from the main dealer.

SOURCE: CVT 2002 Mini Cooper transmission check and change

The only way to check the trans fluid is to drain the fluid right out of the trans pan. There should be 5 liters. The only way to get the fluid in is by pumping the fluid back in by means of the fill plug on the lower front of the transmission. I believe it is a 4 or a 6mm allen to remove the plug. Whatever you use to pump the fluid back in needs to seal where the fill plug is because fluid will pour right back out. I would change the fluid at least every 50k.

SOURCE: I have a mini cooper

There is no dipstick. Nor is it a sealed unit.

You need to remove the splash shield under the engine.
The use a 6mm hex key to remove the fill/check flug from the side of the tranny.. The fluid should be level with the bottom of the hole.

It's all on Page 020-28 of the Bentley Press Mini Cooper Service Manual. Amazon carries it.

If you have a manual tranny, which one do you have? 5 or 6 speed? Again, there is no dipstick, and you have to check the fill hole on the side of the tranny
