I've got a 51 plate cooper.

and since owning it Ive already had a new gearbox put in at just over 50,000 miles which is disgusting in my eyes, BUT Im over that now these problems are annoying me :mad:

1. when i accelerate from standing hard the car is overcome by an unbelievable judder on regular occasions.

2. when accelerating there is a scrapng noise that continues even when the clutch is engaged.

3. losing loads of coolant, filled header tank up last week and just had to fill it up again

4. fan is staying on all the time and it sounds like a b****rd space ship!

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am getting ear ache from the missus and am currently having to sell my mx5 due to not being able to afford to repair it :(

Gearboxes in early minis are prone to going....so this is fairly normal unfortunately, and it looks like you need to replace your spark plugs
