The aisin warner tf60-sn FAULTS

he aisin TF-60SN suffers from a list of issues that you need to look out for when purchasing a 2002-2006 cooper s r53 or 2006-2013 r56.

The Aisin transmission in the Mini Cooper S and 2 gen models is better than the CVT model but they also have a harsh shift issue that is attributed to the valve body. If this problem is caught early, sometimes just the valve body can be replaced. If the shift issue is not addressed in a timely manner the transmission will need to be replaced or rebuilt. Most of the transmission issues are caused by the maintenance interval or lack thereof that Mini specifies. Mini states that the fluid never needs to be changed and this is wrong..

info given by the haus of minis.


this is a pdf on the oil change procedure..

recommended fluid is bmw own which costs a fortune!

luckly toyota type 4 fluid can be used as it is the exact same transmission used in the toyota yaris
