Recently, my 2008 Mini Cooper Base has been reeving up. Feels like the

Thank you everyone.

Check the transmission fluid level. If the trans is sealed take it to a transmission shop.

Ok but how do I know if the transmission is sealed? Obviously there must be a Dipstick to check I'm thinking or a Fluid Canister?

If there is no dip stick then it is sealed. Read your owners manual.

2008, OK, how many miles are on your car?? I've heard that these cars have many problems.

Hello. The mini has 119,000.

Is it a manual or automatic?
