Got a bit of a strange one here that we have never come across before and asking to see if any Mini techs have seen these symptoms.
2006 R56 Mini Cooper (Non Cooper S)
- Upon Cold start up the car will idle Erratically for approximately 20-30 seconds before settling down to just below 1000 rpm
- It will fluctuate rapidly between 700 and 1300 rpm (like the car is hunting for fuel)
- There are no error codes stored & no engine management light
So far we have had the car re-programmed by Mini (which did cure the problem for about 6 weeks)
Since it's return, on the advice from local Mini dealer we have fitted:
- New Temperature sender & housing
- New Manifold & gaskets
Unfortunately the issue still exists, and we are running short on solutions. I cannot find any similar symptoms on the net either.
If anyone has experienced this and can enlighten us as to what the cure may be, then we would be grateful!
