Hi all, new to the forum! I recently took the plunge and bought a 1993 Mini Cooper SPI. Structurally she's sound, great bodywork, no rot, no oversills etc. But mechanically/eletrically it has a few niggles. The throttle issue is the one I'd like some guidance with if possible!
Firstly the throttle is very sensitive, which I can live with. But it does seem a little too sensitive, not how it should be at least. My issue with it is that if I actuate the throttle anymore than 5mm, the engine stutters. Throttle kicks out, revs don't climb etc. If I move it about 2mm, it revs perfectly, quite high too as the throttle is so sensitive. I can easily take the car to 5000RPM without moving my foot a great deal.
If I try to "floor it" the throttle kicks out and I lose power. Does anyone know where I should start with this?
