Your Mini Cooper is manufactured by BMW, but even the best designed vehicles can develop “issues”. Mini Cooper is known for developing oil leaks – fortunately at Fremont Auto Center we can find the source of any oil leak and get it fixed, so you can enjoy your Mini for years to come.
How do I know that my Mini is leaking engine oil?
We all know about oil spots on the driveway or the garage floor. But a pungent smell coming from the engine area (when the engine is hot) may also indicate that there is an oil leak. One good habit, though it requires a bit more effort, is to regularly check engine oil levels – if you notice the oil level dropping significantly between regular oil changes, or you have to repeatedly add engine oil between service visits, it’s likely a sign of an engine oil leak. Noticing any of these symptoms should motivate you to have your Mini Cooper checked out by a professional.
Common Areas of Mini Cooper Oil Leaks
Among the areas of Mini oil leaks are the usual culprits – damaged valve cover gasket, worn our seals (crankshaft seal comes to mind), as well as engine oil and oil filter housing, and turbocharger and the turbo oil feed pipe.
