Engine light, reduced power & louder exhaust
Hi there, I'm new to this forum but can't bring myself to post about my new mini because I can't really drive the thing!
I got a 07 Cooper R56 last week and two days after I noticed the clutch was slipping. The dealer agreed to replace it under warranty and it seems to have been rectified. However, it's caused other problems.
I noticed a significant reduction in power and a louder noise from the exhaust. I had a diagnostics expert come out to check problems on the ECU but nothing came to light. The next day, the yellow engine light came on and I'm reluctant to drive it until I know what's up.
I know to replace the clutch they would have had to take the engine off its mountings and unlink the gearbox. Could they have knocked something loose, or done a bad job of putting it back together?
If anyone has any ideas to what the problem could be, or a similar encounter, please lemme know! Thanks.
