Unfortunately a coolant leak there can have only 2 origins: either the head gasket has failed or the head itself is punctured. The only way to know for sure which is to look at the engine with it running and see the leak - thoroughly clean it before that.

Why does my Mini's fan stay running for 20 minutes after engine is switched off & header tank from radiator needs topping up every week?


will assume it the newer mini produced


yes 20 minutes is too long

will need to go to a workshop for inspection
possible answers for the issue

the fan .......all fixable
faulty internal thermostat ..
faulty thermostatic temp switch not switching off
of fan motor not spinning quick enough


the fan thermostatic on /off switch is set that way to cool down the motor and not warp the head or block
after stopping the engine the coolant is at is hottest for a short time
so the fan shuts off when the coolest temp of coolant is reached

header tank needing top ups

check for hose leaks at clamps or small cracks in heater hoses
the cap of the header tank may need replacing
the internal heater radiator may have a leak
(you would have wet carpet inside the car)
a welsh plug may be leaking
radiator may have a hole hole
or other coolant leak unknown

worst case
if the coolant in the header tank looks like it is sludgy
(has oil in it ) or oil dip stick has coolant or water with the oil
there is a possibility the head gasket has blown

Mini Cooper temperature gauge goes to red zone when idle


check coolant level could be too low allowing air in the cooling system causing air pocket in engine around the engine coolant sensor.coolant sensor needs to be in hot coolant so it will cause the cooling fan to come on at a set temperature.make sure coolant correct level and the coolant level in the cooling overflow jug should be at full cold mark.the cooling overflow jug should never be empty,if you see empty cooling overflow jug air got in the cooling system so make sure when engine cold every time raise hood make sure cooling overflow jug coolant level at full cold mark.if jug stay empty you have cooling leak.so replace radiator cap,if coolant level all good,i would replace the engine coolant temperature and thermostat.when your car come to a long stop or driving along long line of slow moving traffic the engine coolant blower motor should running if not have vechicle code scan for faulty coolant fan motor control module.or ecm problems.

My mini cooper is blowing cold air inside when the car is hot and it start overheating


Clarence,
your mini-cooper may just need a new thermostat. if the thermostat in your car is the original, then 4 years is a goodly amount of time for any thermostat to last. Thermostats fail in 2 ways: (A) stuck open, which causes engine to warm really slowly, and (b) stuck closed, causing overheating and
causing the heater to blow cold air - since the heated coolant can't get past the closed thermostat to
circulate through the heater core (a small radiator-like device used to heat the interior of your car).
Your car's thermostat has failed in mode (B).
Your cost: $5-$15 at any auto parts store.
Project complexity: any handy person could teach themselves to replace a thermostat.

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.

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.

How do you replace the coolant on a 2006 mini cooper


this is how i replace the coolant on minis. remove the lower splash shield and disconnect the lower radiator hose right off the radiator. when it stops draining, resecure the hose and clamp. next , ur going to have to refill and bleed the cooling system.i do this through the coolant resevroir. this is important, or else ur vehicle is going to overheat and boil over no matter if the system is full or not. there are 2 coolant bleeder valves. open both valves a little and fill the coolant system with the correct coolant. fill the coolant. fill the coolant till it begins to come out of the 2 valves . when coolant begins to come out through the valves slowly and steady with no air pockets , go ahead and close up both valves and run vehicle to normal operateing temps, make sure vehicle isnt overheating and u should be fine. u may have to repeat the procedure over again. once u do it once u remember how next time. ( the two bleeder valves are sort of hard to explain in words where they are, they arent hard to access ) u can turn them with a flathead screwdriver) they are usually black and plastic.

Radiator cap


There is not a radiator cap on mini coopers it is a closed radiator. The coolant expansion tank is in the back of the engine compartment twards the middle. The fill for the coolant is just on the drivers side of the engine block between the engine and the battery box/ engine air filter.

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.

I just read in the 2009 Consumer Report Best and Worst Cars


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
