The main cooling issue that is for the 05 cooper is the Thermostat gaskets leak. MINI has updated the part but has not issued a bulletin or recall. Check under your car often and make sure there is not a puddle of coolant. They just updated the part within the last 3 months, so it is still pretty new. The old gasket is a white color and the new one is a semi clear. The only thing that you can do is be on the look out for coolant leaking on the floor in the middle or towards the drivers side of the engine bay, Almost positive that MINI will not allow you to replace a part under warranty unless your thermostat is leaking. Hope that helps answer your question

Engine Surge when cold


Since the engine light is on, you need to have the code/s read. There are different causes for your symptoms. This may be related to EGR valve performance, oil flow. vacuum leak, idle air control valve, or fuel flow and pressure. Have the codes read and let me know. The more specific and detailed you can be, the better I can help narrow down your search and repair it. Good luck.

After how many miles should i service my Mini Cooper 2009?


My recommendation is to open your glove compartment and see what the owner's manual suggests what the oil change interval is.
Remember all the engines are no the same. What the garanty especify, If is a 2009 mini cooper you still have a garanty.

2005 Mini Cooper Engine Cooling Problems


There is a problem with the thermostat gaskets. Often times they leak and allow cars to overheat. Check under your car and make sure that there is no coolant leaking. MINI has updated the gasket so if you get your car serviced at a mini dealer then your gasket will be updated. There is not a bulletin or recall for this replacement this would be at your cost.
