Mini Cooper S Backfiring
June 6, 2011 9:32 AM Subscribe
My mini ('09 S, automatic) is backfiring after I turn it off. Yes, I know about the "burble" you can hear when you shift gears in a manual, this obviously isn't my problem. Details inside.
I use premium fuel, get the oil changed when I am supposed to (only once since owning it - just following instructions) and generally take care of the car. Is there a reason for the puttering after I turn it off? It typically only happens in the morning after about a 10 mile drive. Not a loud backfire, but definitely a noise. I am terrified that this change the oil once a year madness is the problem. I'm at 32K and don't need an oil change for another 7K. Please help.
