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.

We were able to perform a cooling system test (see video) and you can see the coolant spraying out of a cracked thermostat housing. After replacing the thermostat housing and stabilizing the cooling system, we were able to get the vehicle running long enough to properly perform a head gasket/block test. Unfortunately this Mini Cooper failed the head gasket test and we had to recommend removal of the cylinder head for testing and inspection. The machine shop found that the cylinder head was badly warped and had to be straightened or replaced. The only thing that could have prevented this is cooling system service. As you can see in the third picture, there is a lot of build up in the cooling s ... read more
