Cutting out on idle

Hi,

I have just bought a 2007 Mini Cooper S and there appears to be an intermittent fault where the car cuts out when on idle or when the clutch is held down for a period of time, for example waiting to pull out of a junction.

The revís seem to drop very low and before the car stalls sometimes the revís pick back up again but after this happens once or twice the engine management light flashes up and the car cuts out. This seems to happen more when the engine is warm rather than when itís cold and does not happen all the time.

Has anyone else had a similar problem at all?

Thanks in advance

I had a similar problem with my 58' Mini, the revs dropping very low then cutting out, but it was happening whilst i was driving! All the info on it and what the problem was is on the thread called 'start-stop activating whilst driving'

same here , what was the fix ?

Hi there
I have exactly the same issue with my 2007 cooper. When its warm , as soon as I come to lights or a stop it cuts out, even restarting it will idle very low and then cut out again.
Did you find out what the problem was ? Any advice would be great.
Cheers

cutting out on idle

Hi, 1st time leaving a reply on here so hope I've got it right. The problem you have sounds just like a problem I had with my 07 cooper s. MINI INSITED THE PROBLEM WAS EVERYTHING EXCEPT WHAT I WAS SUGGESTING, THE FUEL PUMP! So I bit the bullet & bought a new pump & had it fitted by a local engineer that I trust & hey bingo problem solved, hope this helps.

For my pennies worth, I am a techy for Mini/BMW and as above, fuel pumps have been known to cause your symptoms. Generally you would get bad running from cold also if the fuel pump was at fault. Really needs diagnosing to be sure though.
