Hello and welcome to Justanswer,

Your 2005 Mini Cooper doesn't have a timing belt but instead a timing chain and the labor to replace it calls for 7.3 hours. The 1.6 in not consider an interference engine unless its the R56 MINI with the French engine

i replace motor the motor installed will not turn over and the strange thing i drove car into shop and the old motor will not turn over either with a breaker bar motor has been out for only a couple days any ideas

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
If you sure the motor will not turn over something else has to be binding it up, are you sure the transmission is installed right and not causing the bind?

Have you pulled the spark plugs to see if there is fuel and or coolant in the cylinders causing a liquid lock?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

pulled plugs on both motors cylinders are empty old motor will not turn either and car ran with that engine

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
Something has to be binding up, will it turn if you disconnect the transmission, If not then it has to be something internal.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

IF TRANS WAS BINDING WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO TURN THE TIRES WHEN CAR IS IN GEAR

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
If the car was in neutral you should be able to turn the tires. It may not be the trans but if your sure the engine in not seized something has to be holding it from turning.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I CAN TURN THE TIRES IN ALL THE GEARS THEY SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME RESISTANCE IN ALL THE GEARS

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
Then I would think that rules out the transmission .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


SHOULD TIRES TURN HARDER IN FIRST THAN THIRD ITS A MANUAL TRANS

Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.
Yes they normally should, the lower the gear the harder it should be to turn. The engine should be holding them from turning especially in the lower gears and reverse.
