What problems with the chain tensioner on Mini Cooper S?
Years 2007-2014

Answer

On this car model of the German company, some problems of ignition irregularities and a clear drop in power at high revs have been reported, as well as a high noise when starting the engine. When these symptoms occur, the problem can be traced back to the chain tensioner which causes the engine to go out of phase and therefore the power drops and the reported noise. To solve this type of problem it is necessary to replace the chain tensioner quickly in order to avoid subsequent serious problems.
