CVT Transmission on 2003 base Model MIni Cooper
My 2003 Mini will not go above 2000 RPM and 10 MPH while driving in a straight line (road) After I pulled over I discovered the dash position indicator reads in "P"ark even when the gear shift shows R or D. Is this a CVT Transmission issue??
The mini is in what is called limp mode, and yes the CVT transmission is notorious for failure, unlike the manual. you may just need a trans fluid change or it may need replaced, from what i understand costing upwards of 8k usd. or WayMotorWorks sells a cvt/manual conversion for much cheaper, and more reliable, if you can do the manual thing.
Thanks for your answer. I can do a manual...but I thought the CVT was a closed system and you could not change the fluid??
