Mini Cooper Clubman Power Loss

Hi, please can anyone help...... Bought our 1.6 Cooper Clubman 45,0000 miles a few months back, had just been serviced prior to us having it and all as been well...... Until now :-( I've develop power loss between the 2-3,000 rev range..... More noticeable when moving from 1st to second gear. If you drive it lightly it's not so noticeable but the more you give it throttle the more more it seems to hold back.... It's like you notching on the handbrake one click! I took to a mini specialist and the car came up with no faults? Any thoughts? Have checked the air intake and no blockages..... It's a bit like it's choking? Cheers Steve.

Hi ya

I think it may be one of your O2 sensors.
Get your self a cheep code reader from ebay for 15-30 pounds, worth having if your going to keep the car for a while.
but it's does sounds similar to what my dads was like when his O2 sensor went wrong.

Something like this

Hope this helps

Thanks for your help...... just collected my car from main dealer, turns out its a failing catalytic converter. They quoted me 1100.00 to replace. Think i'll be getting another quote. Have to say I was impressed with the main dealer service though.

Nice to know the answer, as long as it is that, its not unknown for the dealers to replace items charge you a fortune and its just the same, in the end it turns out to be something like a loose wire.
Hope theyre right, they dont tend to give a refund if they arent thats the problem.
