Hi I need some advise. I have a mini cooper SD 12 reg and I've noticed when changing from 1st to 2nd gears etc it seams to jolt like the engine mounting is moving any ideas which to look at also is it a expensive job and easy to do ? Thanks

Welcome to tM. Before you venture down the engine mount route and being relatively new, other causes is the type of fuel used, its only when we turned to using high premium diesel that our N47s engines started to act differently and no longer suffered from the jolting you describe. What's the mileage of your MINI?

My GP was doing this and I was convinced it was the engine mounts, there was an unbelievable amount of slop in the shifts and general pick up.

I changed the turbo diverter valve on a whim (no fault code present and diaphragm was perfectly intact) and it has solved everything - all the gearshifts are spot on now, it will pick up from low speed in 2nd without struggling, boost between gears is much improved and there's no noticeable 'spool' that it was doing on the majority of shifts.
