Questions About 2006 Mini Cooper’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Mini's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mini Cooper? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Cooper transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Mini Cooper transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Mini. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Mini Cooper transmission fluid leak? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Mini Cooper, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Who can fix my  Mini Cooper transmission leak? Look to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for Cooper transmission system diagnostics and repairs. Schedule an appointment online today.
  • Is it okay to drive a Cooper with a transmission fluid leak? Driving with a transmission fluid leak is not recommended.
