My EML light comes on as well as service now light and my 2006 MCS goes into "drive slow/protect engine mode" when the car has been idled for say 10 minutes or driven for say 20 minutes. The temperature gauge is mid scale and mechanic says the computer code is said to be the fuel-air sensor ($350 symptom non-solution?).

The car is salvage due to body wreckage so it seems not under california smog warranty for newer car smog systems. - note, I feel the radiator fan never comes on.

Question Oil Change on 2009 Mini

I just bought a 2009 Mini with 9,000 miles on it, which was sold new 10 months ago and I believe the oil is not due to be changed by the dealer, however I want to change it as I believe that is enough miles on any oil. I'm wondering if it takes 4 qts. and if the filter is in the front of the engine instead of the rear of the engine like my 2006 was. I can't find a shop manual like the 2006 had. Please advise

I've got an old bimmer w/heater core issues. My windshield fogs up like you wouldn't believe. Try wiping the inside of the windshield with RainX's Anti-fog solution or just use denatured alcohol. It's the same thing only cheaper.

Default battery problem and carbon on inside of hood.

my 2009 mini wouldn't turn over. good thing it was home when it decided to die. Upon opening the hood noticed carbon residue on inside of hood. Any ideas on my the battery would go at 17 months and why the carbon is showing on inside of hood?

Thank you. I also raised the temp control to 68 and that helped.

Hi, I have a 2005 Mini cooper S automatic. it has started shifting rough on the down shift and laggish on the upshift. my mini mechanic says transmission passed computer test and it is a sealed transmission with lifetime oil, so he cannot service transmission. is this possible? and what could be wrong why it has started shifting very hard?
