Keep in mind the #1 problem with these vehicles is fuel pumps. As the fuel pump gets weak it can still allow the car to run but, it will have starting problems like you mentioned. Have the pressure tested.

Sounds like broken fuel pressure regulator. it is loccated on driver side of engine with vacuum hose to it and a clamp similar to ac hose connector clamp. If diaphragm is broken in this regulator it will allow raw gas to "flood the engine" when the engine is warm. When the engine has time to cool, the extra gas evaporates.

How do you reset brake wear indicator on mini cooper?

The brake wear indicator is a non-reusable sensor that is installed in the brake pad. If this sensor is activated then the entire sensor must be replaced. Parts are available on-line if you are not close to a MINI dealership. After the worn sensor is replaced, you turn the key to position II without starting the car and wait for the light to reset. The sensor can be replaced without removing the caliper.

1997 JGC Laredo You have had the coolant sensor replaced but it still tells you that the coolant level is low does the computer need to be reset If so how is it done.?

There are two separate sensors that play here. the "coolant temperature sensor" and "coolant LEVEL sensor". I suggest confirming which of these was replaced, as it is very common for them to be confused. likely you will find the coolant sensor that was replaced was the one on the engine (temperature); The LEVEL sensor is mounted either in the coolant resivoir or in the radiator. Probably just need the proper sensor replaced.
