  2. MINI Faults & Fixes
    Hi All First post, so go easy... :) I have an R56 Mini with the N12 1.4 petrol engine (Non Turbo) with 70000 miles, that has developed a misfire.

  3. General Discussion
    I bought a 2007 min copper not s in January. The valve cover looked tinkered with and it used a lot of oil so I decided to change it. After valve cover was changed the oil consumption has gone down but it started leaking instead. It leaks from the corner near the vacuum pump. It is not the...
  4. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hello everbody, I have an issue on mini n12 2007 with low oil pressure. I checked all the possible blogs, threads, that exist on this issue with no positive outcome.

  5. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hi all! So every time it rains my car loves to make a high pitched squeal, allerting all of the neighbours (and everyone in a 30 mile radius tbh) of its presence.

It needed a timing by chain and I wasn’t worried about it. All that was fixed. She drove it some. But it...

    Hi everyone, I've got a story for you. I bought a cheap 2009 70k mile/113k km automatic Justa that had previously been overheated and developed a persistent misfire in #2 but still had good compression. Head was pulled and found to have a dropped valve seat along with a displaced rocker (popped...
  9. MINI Engine & Drivetrain Tuning
    I wanted to share some information about my recent experience with a 2009 Mini Cooper clubman 1.6l non turbo N12 auto trans. I had a no start no crank situation. I called a tow truck and by the time it arrived I decided to try to start it again. It started right up! A few days go by and another...
