Mini Cooper slow coolant leak repair in Temecula and Murrieta Ca. Mini Cooper Specialists in Temecula and Murrieta.

Watch this short video to see what it takes to get to the coolant leak on this 2008 Mini Cooper S We had a 2008 Mini Cooper S come into the shop with a very slow coolant leak. We added dye to the cooling system, got the vehicle up to running temperature and pressurized the cooling system over night. In the morning we found the coolant was coming from behind the heat shield of the turbo. We advices the client that the front of the vehicle and the turbo shielding had to be removed to gain access and inspect the coolant leak. The client approved the dis-assembly and inspection.

It is much more common for the gasket between the oil cooler and the oil filter stand to leak. That is precisely why we add dye to the coolant before dis-assembly to ensure we pin-point the leak and get it repaired right the first time and on time.

Only when the coolant bottle started to leak and they said that they "don't do that type of repair" did he search us out. We replaced his coolant bottle, performed an oil service and check all of his fluids (see fluid sample picture). Even we were surprised to see an oil filter in this condition (see oil filter picture). We had to remove all the pieces of the filter from the oil filter housing with a pair of needle nose pliers. It turns out that the lube shop that he has been patronizing for all of those years, doesn't stock the oil filter for his vehicle, so they just didn't replace it. As you can see the transmission fluid, power steering fluid and brake fluid is in bad co ... read more
