Clarence, your mini-cooper may just need a new thermostat. if the thermostat in your car is the original, then 4 years is a goodly amount of time for any thermostat to last. Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (A) stuck open, which causes engine to warm really slowly, and (b) stuck closed, causing overheating and causing the heater to blow cold air - since the heated coolant can't get past the closed thermostat to circulate through the heater core (a small radiator-like device used to heat the interior of your car). Your car's thermostat has failed in mode (B). Your cost: $5-$15 at any auto parts store. Project complexity: any handy person could teach themselves to replace a thermostat.

Mini's have had problems in the past with the shift cables coming off or breaking. No worries: the only danger is that you will be stuck in the gear you where in when the cables break. No damage to the car will occur. You should check out the recall notices. Good luck
