Question about 2003 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

I just bought a used 2005 Mini Cooper S (6 spd Manual with supercharger). Vehicle has 40K miles and in imac condition. Driven by a housewife for local driving in Grafenwohr, Germany. Car ran fine during the 3 hr drive back to Stuttgart. I drove the car for 1 day since with no problem. The 3rd day, while going up a bit of a hill, the power cut out to 10% and the EML light came on. Pulled over, turned the car off. Let it rest a minute and then restarted the engine. The EML light did not stay on, however, the Service Light came on. Dash shows 10K miles before next tune-up.

The service engine light is on because the ECU has stored a code. Have someone with a reader check the code to see what needs service.

SOURCE: What does this warning light mean?

If you have owned the car since new 40K miles is a lot on a set of brake pads, it could be. But to be sure, you might consider a faul code reader as found on the Mini Mania Website: http://new.minimania.com/web/Item/NME4020/InvDetail.cfm

SOURCE: 2006 mini overheating

Check for leaks around the Coolant Overflow Reservoir (the yellow bottle in the middle of the firewall.) I had the same problem with over-heating, and replaced the thermostat with no help. I went to the dealer and picked up the Reservoir for $26~, installed it in 5 mins (at work) and haven't had a cooling issue since.

How can i install another automatic transmision fluid cooler to a 2006 mini cooper s


air transmission oil coolers lower oil temp by over 60%( more it the ambient temp is low) so yes they are the way to go
what is suggested is that you go to an accredited transmission specialist shop and get a kit made for mini cars and see how to fit it properly
They are not cheap( up to $500.00 aud ) but will ,save in transmission costs over time

2005 mini cooper battery was dead, bought new one and now will not crank. Radio and lights come on.


Have you looked into the PSP (Power Steering Pump) relay, or the cooling fan? This problem has been know to create issues and lead to a dead battery. For more information, read this forum of MINI owners, there are quite a few with your issue, and they are trying to get a recall. the 2005 MINI's also have a headlight recall.

At what kms do the timing and supercharger belts need replacing on 2005 mini cooper s


A 2005 mini cooper s does not have a timing belt. the engine is driven by chain and is probably good food for 200000 miles or untill they start rattling.
You will just need to inspect the super charger belt. If there are no cracks in it it will be fine.

What does this warning light mean?


you're do for brake service. either the front or rear brake pads have worn down to
minimum. if when you apply the brakes you don't feel pulsation, just replace the brake pads and sensors and that will take care of the light.

Quick Question on MINI break-in period bmw


When I picked up my car. the very next day I went on a 800+ mile trip. During the trip, I made a mental note to vary my speeds between 50 and 90 and do frequent gear changes to keep the RPMs moving around... did my best to simulate city driving.

The oil change intervals are based upon your driving conditions. depending on which oil they use, it should be fine. My oil was drained in my car at 11k miles and it turned out to be in good condition.
