PCW1983 Posted May 26, 2009 Share Posted May 26, 2009 Hi all, i'm hoping someone can give me some advice. Im currently in the process of buying a 1999 Cooper Sportspack MPI, when i test drove the car i notice that when going hard and changing into 3rd gear the revs would fly up and there would be a loss of power, this also happened more noticably in 4th gear. To me a mechanical novice i presumed there might be a problem with the clutch however ive later thought that surely this would happen in all gears if that was the case. ? I called Green and Whites and he said the best thing to do would be to check the diagnostics. Im buying this car from a independent dealer who does not specialize in Mini's however he did say he will get it checked out and im also getting a 6 month warranty. Have any of you came across this type of problem before and if so what advice would you give. For the record i'm spending £5500 on this mini and its got to be my daily driver so i really cant afford to have a load of problems with it.
