any of the belowHi guys,
I have a problem with my "new" MINI Cooper Diesel ALL4 Countryman 1.6 manual 2012.
When the engine speed is <2000 rpm the performance of the engine is very poor.
During the hill start, I can't run slow, the engine seems doesn't have the strength to push my car when the rpm is <2000.
To make a hill start I need to use a lot the clutch (with classical stink).
When the hill is heavy it is a problem.
What do you think about it?
egr valve suck partially open enough to bleed off boost from turbo but not enough to throw a eml lights,
timing chain stretched running all wrong from if,very common
turbo vnt sticking,
fuel system problem
most common on those n47 diesels aroun 70-100k is the timing chain, but egr valve runs right up there, and dpf filter semi blocked if car is over 75000 miles on it filter that would be my first job replace or professionally cleaned out, you will need a diagnostic run to first off read whats doing what with egr and dpf filter etc then if or egr both need to be programmed in the ecu on the car, autocom cdp plus will do that look on ebay £35 ish well worth the coins, cannont even begin to know what is doing what without it,
i would get it fixed pretty soon as clutch will not take that kind of beating for long, if clutch does fail only a fool would not change the timing chain while gearbox or engine is out on anything past 50k as its a massive job on them and its their weakness timing chains,
