Check for leaks around the Coolant Overflow Reservoir (the yellow bottle in the middle of the firewall.) I had the same problem with over-heating, and replaced the thermostat with no help. I went to the dealer and picked up the Reservoir for $26~, installed it in 5 mins (at work) and haven't had a cooling issue since.

I turn my car off and take the keys out but the fan keeps running?


if the car is warm the fans are designed to continue to run untill temp drops to normal temp and then fans shut off. This is a normal operation of the fan nothing to worry about. Now if they stay running for more than 10 minutes you have a problem.

My fan comes on when i start the engine on my 2006 mini cooper and goes off 10 mins after the engine is switched off


This is a likely "fail safe". Have your coolant temperature sensor tested. If the temp sensor is faulty, it could keep the fans on as a safety so the engine does not overheat.

First thing i would do is make sure the cooling fans come on when it gets to operating temperature. They should also come on when you have the A/C on if you want to check quicker.

2006 mini w/ 30k miles. when stopped, temp gauge shoots up to the red zone. when i start driving again, it drops back down. also, unsure if related, but heat will not blow hot. what could it be?


most likely is going to be a bad thermostat. when you are moving cold air comes through the grill cooling engine but when you stop you don't have that air and thermostat is not allowing flow causing overheating.

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop


I had this exact same problem -- for about a year and a half! Replaced thermostat, replaced sensor twice, replaced overflow tank, replaced radiator cap, placed a grounding kit on the car in case the problem was electrical ... and was ABOUT to replace thermostat again and then the water pump when a new mechanic suggested we bleed air out of the cooling system. The heater core was PACKED with air, as was the upper hose valve area. Previous mechanic had been using a pressurized fill device to bleed the system and this had just been backing air into the heater core. There are two valves under the hood for bleeding air -- one on the heater core and one on the upper hose. It only takes a few minutes to fix this!

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop


I had the same problem two weeks ago. I have a 2006 Mini Cooper. Brought it into the shop. They changed out the themostat (under warranty). The service advisor said that the 2005 and 2006 Mini's had a problem with the themostat's.

Good luck.
