No low down power
Advice needed please.
I bought my 2011 SD convertible with only 21,000 miles back in March this year. It has full Mini service history.
I've covered 4,000 miles since and love the car.
On a few occasions I've notice that the engine tone is deeper than normal, almost like in a petrol car when you try to accelerate in too high a gear. The other thing that happens is when I turn the engine off after the tone is deeper is that the cooling fan comes on and stays on for between 5 and 10 minutes.
Yesterday on a 120 mile motorway journey, I again noticed the engine tone was deeper and low down power seemed to be less than normal, instead of being happy at around 1,800 revs it felt as if I needed to change down a gear.
When I got to the car park, it wouldn't pull at all below 1,500 to 2,000 revs.
No warning lights came on.
After parking and returning to the car and hour later, it started without issue and was fine all the back for the 120 miles.
Any idea what could be wrong ???
