Question about 2000 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

We have a mini, 1982 that will start and run for approx 40 secs then splutters and cuts out. I have changed the points, plugs, the fuel pump is working, the leads have been changed, i also took off the metal fuel pipe and replaced it with a larger bore plastic one, could that make a difference? should the metal one be put back, does it create pressure which i have altered? any advice gratefully received, thanks, the details below refer to a different mini its a 1988 mini 1000 chas drew

This can be caused by a few things. Clogged exhaust system. An overheating electronic component in the ignition system, such as the coil, the module etc.

Wont start


I understand you replaced the relay but not the pump, right ?
Has the fuel filter been replaced recently ? Are you sure there is gas in the tank ?
You should be able to jumper the pump relay and check fuel pressure.

If this truck has the 4.3L vortec motor it will not start with 40-45 PSI fuel Pressure.Thius engine requires approx. 56 PSI fuel pressure or it will not start. The fuel pump more than likely needs to be replaced this is a common problem with the 4.3L vortec engine.Change the fuel pump and your problems will be solved.
