help low mileage 02 cooper

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My mum has a cooper for 7 years and have spent a fortune on it, the car has started to display a amber engine warning light and it looks like a one of the fuel injectors is playing up. She's Tempted to sell too we buy any car for 1800 quid but want to advise if its a costly job or not. we love the car but its only done 6000 in the last years 7 years, which works out to be a very expensive car to run , any advise will be great. My mum lives in NW9 London.

Hi ya

Have you had a diagnostic run on it, if so what are the codes ?

To change an fuel injector is about an hours worth of work very easy job, what makes you say the injector has gone.

Playing up like its starving for fuel? Or air? You can clean the injectors to see if it helps. Or as my mini brotheren stated above its about an hour to swap em out. I would go from the 280 cc injectors to 300-400 range injectors. The higher the milage the better they run =)
