Might be worth contacting Guessworks, I think he only deals with manual boxes but he may be able to put you in touch with someone who knows about autos.

Try an oil and filter change, also double check the selection mechanism adjustment (a bit of a faff but doable)

The oil and filter change is a good place to start.

 

What year is the mini? For the later versions Rover recommended 10w 40 mineral oil.

 

There is quite a bit of info on the automatic mini website about oil for the automatic gearbox. Quite a few people recommend using oil that is suitable for motor cycles with wet clutches. This is oil with the specification JAPO MA2 and semi synthetic 10w40.

 

The gearbox does need very regular and frequent oil changes and if these have been neglected in the past this may be the cause of your problems. I hope so!

10/40 will be ok, my mate runs his late auto on 20/50, it runs good and is generally reliable

Should have added this to my previous post.

 

Do you know the correct way to check the oil level?

 

To check the level in your automatic transmission follow the info below..............

1) make sure vehicle is on a level surface

2) run the engine for 1 to 2 mins

3) stop and wait for 1 min

4) then check the dipstick
