Resolved Question:


I am having a manual 2008 mini cooper s with 26000 mils on it. I am having acceleration problems, during hard acceleration the car jerks until 3000rpm after this point it is normal. It is as if the power comes on and off during this period. this problem disappears after a few hard revs. Any help on what might be the problem is greatly appreciated
