Question about Mini Cooper

1 Answer

When the speedometer reaches about 50 and up to 65 or so, my 2006 automatic Mini Cooper seems to downshift and then rev up. It stops when I slow down, or speed up. I think the computer needs to be adjusted, but the dealership wants to charge $110 to just run the diagnostics. I tried a few other auto shops, but they say that they do not have the proper diagnostic tools. Anything else I can do but pay the dealer this outrageous amount?

Around 50 - 60 ish miles an hour the torque converter lock up clutch will enable and if it is slipping that could pose a problem. Proper fluid level in the transmission is something I would check first, then to go any further would require some tear down. If you are technically inclined you can take a shot at it, but otherwise just go to a dealer / reputable shop.

Whilst driving the rev counter goes to max and back quickly and car has to be stopped and put into netturak to go again and also when coming to a stop sign the car pushes to go on and has to be put in


1. Is your car an automatic with sport mode? Because sometimes if the car gets hit into sport mode accidentally, it will rev to extremely high RPM (because it is waiting for the driver to indicate shift timing).

Hi there!

This sames strange but i would say you might have a transmission problem that makes the car revs up because it look like it keeps downshifting after a high Rpm which makes the engine idles high. Good luck

2004 sebring lxi 2.7L V6, engine revs when slowing down at stops, when automatic transmission downshifting. what are some causes of this?


I had a similar issue with my Sebring. I took it to the dealership and they just "rebooted" my computer system. They said the computer was getting confused and having problems downshifting. I would check with them. It only took a few minutes at the dealership to reset it. I was relieved that it wasn't something major!
Hope this helps.
