My mini cooper surpintene belt broke and now i have rattle will this stop after i fix the belt

This depends if the tensioner was the problem, and thats why the belt broke in the first place it may need replaced. And if your talking about your engine is rattling this may not stop because the engine was over heated and this is the main cause of engine failure and blown heads.

MIni Cooper S Head Gaskets Issues

the "sniffer" in this case is a device to detect the presents of combustion gasses in the water or radiator .... if there is a good head gasket seal then there should be no combustion gas in the water .... if there is even a small leak then the high pressure gasses will be forced into the water .. the opposite is true when you turn off the engine ... as it cools, pressure in the radiator can force water thru the leak back into the engine .... this also happens during the intake stroke .. so you would be losing water that you might see or smell come out the tail pipe ...the fact that the failure has happened a second time might indicate that you had a warped head or block .. or perhaps a micro crack or surface flaw.. those things should have been checked when the last repairs were done ... i am wondering if the repair shop might negotiate a reduced rate for the redo ... often heads are slightly machined to remove any warp or surface faults during such repairs (if any problems are suspected) ... a used replacement engine could have the same problem or worse .. so if yours is otherwise in good shape then it might be worth while to give it another go ,.. sounds like a good garage, hopefully they will cooperate ... and they might be interested in finding out themselves what happened ...

just go to auto parts store and tell them the year, make, model, and engine size then tell them you need a head gasket kit this will include all gaskets affiliated with the job they will show you a picture of it and get it for you.

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.
