Where do you put the steering fluid in for a 2006 mini cooper? There's nothing in the owners manual about steering fluid.


Every answer here is wrong. Your Mini Cooper has electric power steering. No service required. That is why it does not list fluid type in your owner's manual.

So I picked up a 2006 mini last year and I noticed in the last couple of months that the overflow tank goes empty every couple of days. I hadn't noticed anything on the ground until I had my oil...


Start on a day you're not using the car. park it in a spot where any fluid leaks will be imeadiately obvious and if you see a fluid leak jack the vehicle on the spot and get under it and start looking for wet spots. It could be something as simple as a bad or loose hose clamp.

Have a 2005 Pathfinder with about 120,000 miles. My son is primary driver and he noticed transmission problems and service engine light came on. Took to dealer and they said they found fluid and metal...


sounds like trans cooler in radiator has breached leaking coolant into trans and trans into coolant.i know for sure that nissan extended the warranty on radiator for this problem.i am not sure the mileage and time limits.but if you fall within those limits they should also warrant the trans as this would be the source of failure(collateral damage).good luck and remember the squeaky wheel gets the grease!1-800-nissan1.ecm relay would not be a contributing factor.

Leaking either trans or power steer fluid. 1 or 2 drops per day under left front area


it sounds like power sterring, check level of fluid, inspect around pulley, if it is wet or oily looking, the seal is going bad, you can put some power sterring stop leak in it, it will buy you some time until you can change the pump

Steering makes a whining noise - where is the fluid reservoir?


the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..

CVT 2002 Mini Cooper transmission check and change


The only way to check the trans fluid is to drain the fluid right out of the trans pan. There should be 5 liters. The only way to get the fluid in is by pumping the fluid back in by means of the fill plug on the lower front of the transmission. I believe it is a 4 or a 6mm allen to remove the plug. Whatever you use to pump the fluid back in needs to seal where the fill plug is because fluid will pour right back out. I would change the fluid at least every 50k.

Where do you add power stering fluid?


The power steering reservoir looks to be right next to a clear fluid reservoir, most likely for coolant but could be windshield washer fluid. Its a small black reservoir. It takes Pentosin chf 11s hydraulic fluid.
