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. After dis-assembly of the Mini Cooper, we found that the gasket between the oil filter stand and the engine block was leaking coolant. 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.
