Likely Causes of Mini Cooper Oil Leaks

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.
