Go to the dealer, do not pass go, do not... You get the drift. The Transmission will function in a limited manner, but is not in a happy place.

As for a class action, go to North American Motoring and check the forums. They will probably have information on any action involving Mini's. They are at http://www.northamericanmotoring.com/

What do the letters EP stand for on the dash board of the mini cooper 2003 model?


EP means "emergency program" - this means there is a fault with the transmission. This can be a simple sensor issue, a need for calibration or teach in, bad alternator/battery, old fluid, total transmission failuire, etc, etc, etc.
The fault memory needs to be read out to determine exactly what is putting the car into EP.
EP is essentailly the transmission warning light.

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.

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.

My MINI '03 is screwed up


have you checked transmission oil?
I am not familar with MINI's but it sounds like either your transmission oil is low or is too thick (cold weather could do that) that the computer is safe gaurding you for destroying your transmission or you computers messed up.

Recommendation: get the car to a shop ASAP before you do serious damage.
