Recently, my 2008 Mini Cooper Base has been reeving up. Feels like the
transmission is slipping then re-engages. Any comments are welcomed.
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.

Hello. The mini has 119,000.

Is it a manual or automatic?
