New to the Mini world and off to a rough start. Picked up a 2007 R56 base model hatchback last September and the list of repairs began shortly after. Replaced the valve cover gasket (was leaking from one of the little center bolt seals), had an oil leak from the oil filter housing until I did an oil change with the right oil and now as if by magic the leak stopped. OBDII kicked out P0015 and P0014 codes, replaced both camshaft position sensors and the crank position sensor, then discovered a coolant leak from the thermostat assembly and replaced it.
Now and here is the part I'm completely confused by, I'm still getting the P0014 code. I found out that if I allow the transmission to slow the car down the code pops up. If I drive and either apply the clutch or simply take it out of gear and use the brakes to slow down the code will not come up. As long as the gas peddle is applied doesn't matter if it's light or heavy acceleration the code remains off. If I clear the code it goes into limp mode (I'm sure there's a technical name for it) and clear the code while driving I will get what sounds like a waste gate sound in between gear shifts. I'm lost as to what needs changed. The valves get a little loud once warmed up, however it doesn't start rough or have the timing chain rattle.
Ironically my wife will be picking up an 2011 Cooper Clubman tomorrow. With the amount of Mini of St Louis hourly rates, looks like I'm on my way to a garage of specialty tools and shade tree Mini certification. Least I knew what to listen and look for when searching for hers.
If I need to repost my P0014 discussion to another area please let me know, I am surely in need of the help.
