Please please please help ?!?!?!

I have a problem with my 2007 mini cooper s. on a cold start it has trouble starting, and sometimes when driving it shortly after I put my foot down and it kinda lags slowly then like misfires and then the power comes in

Symptom when I first start the car is that it starts tries to hold cold idle revs and fails then stalls. can do it 4-6 times then will eventually idle but lumpily or with a hint of a misfire.

I believe this may be a common thing, but I am new to mini and this forum, any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Nikki

Hi ya

It could be a few things causing the problem, with out looking at it or plugging it in to a diagnostic machine it's hard to tell, Is it ok once it's warmed up?

It could be something as simple as a bad plug or coil pack or even a coolant temp sender or worse a high press fuel pump but if it is you may be covered by bmw as there has been recalls and problem with them

The only advice I could really give you is if you are a member of the AA,RAC or similar or you have a friend who has a membership that covers them if there in your car. Call them out and get the code read from the cars computer.
Once you have the code you can track it down quick and easly.

Sorry I can't be much help
