    Hi all, My wife drives a 2013 mini Cooper s coupe with under 100k kms on the clock. We've had to replace the timing chain twice already, and it seems to be making the death rattle AGAIN!!!! We replaced it the first time in 2020, and then again less than a month ago. We've aways ensured...

    I have been trying to find some answers related to this rattling noise from my N14 engine. This is a GEN 2 engine with a Timing Chain Noise or something within the timing components. I'd like to get some opinions related to this. Already have had the RECALL timing chain and tensioner...
  4. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hi guys, if you do not own a Diagnostics scanner that can do a Vanos reset/relearn after a timing chain replacement, will it automatically relearn over time? The one I have does show the degrees requested for each cam shaft and the actual, and they virtually match at different rpm, does that...

  6. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    I bought a Mini One R56 in July. After a few miles the engine light came on. I didn’t notice any difference in power but contacted the seller. He has now replaced various sensors with no results. He then told me it’s dirty petrol. Don’t buy cheap (Morrison’s). I noticed, if I started and...
  7. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    Hi everyone. I'm posting this here as a bit of a warning /info to mini owners about the troubles with these N18 engines.... I bought my mini about 2 months ago from a used car dealer in Duisberg Germany. I live in Luxembourg so the car was marked by the dealer as 'for export which means I have...
  8. Second Generation Faults & Fixes
    There have been many posts about diagnosis and replacement of timing chains on the second generation engines. I was wondering if anyone has measured the chains they are replacing? Knowing how much wear indicates replacement is required would be useful. A wear limit should be more decisive than...
  9. Second Generation MINI Cooper S
    Hi, I bought my 2007 Cooper S in Sept 20 having never owned a Mini before. It was an absolute joy to drive and I was blown away by the acceleration. After I’d had it for a month, the engine warning light came on and the car went into restricted mode. Diagnostics didn’t find anything obvious but...

    Hey everyone, with a heavy heart my wife and I are having to consider the possibility that we need to let our van go. The timing chain went at the back end of last year, and I haven't been able to scrape together the cash to get it sorted. I've looked at the options for refurb engines, but with...

    Hello all- new to the forum as just about to buy a cooper s 2007. I know these are not great audio quality but could use your valued experience to understand if you can hear a timing belt issue with this engine. I will have to travel to view so wanted to get an idea thanks in advance
  12. Maintenance & MINI Care
    Hey guys, so recently bought a 2011 Cooper S and I've been battling an odd sound coming from the engine bay. I narrowed it down to either the chain rattling or the drive belt/pulleys rattling/chugging. I've seen some videos of a similar sound that turned out be the drive belt falling apart and...
