What are the symptoms of bad Mini engine coolant?
- When the 'Maintenance' light is on.
- When the 'Engine Temperature' light is on.
- When the engine runs at a higher temperature than usual (engine overheats).
How long will an engine coolant replacement take on my Mini?
An engine coolant replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
When should you change your Mini coolant?
Without a steady supply of cool engine coolant flowing through the cooling system there is a risk that the car will overheat, in some cases the engine can then suffer expensive internal damage. Debris like scale or rust shed by the internals of the system can cause an inadequate flow of engine coolant through the system. Eventually, the system can clog up entirely.
Should you experience problems with the engine coolant supply, then it is advisable to have the cooling system inspected and, if necessary, have the coolant replaced. Seeing that engine coolant is generally prone to deteriorate over time it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
Is it ok to drive Mini with low coolant?
No, it is not safe to drive with low engine coolant. Doing so can cause the engine to overheat, which can lead to serious and very expensive engine damage.
How long does coolant last in my Mini?
Coolant can last anywhere from 2 years to 5 years. However, it is recommended that you change your coolant at least every 5 years, if not sooner, to help prevent rust and corrosion.
How do I know if my Mini needs a coolant flush?
If you find that your temperature gauge warning light is illuminating and your engine is frequently overheating, it is possible that you may need to get a coolant flush by a qualified mechanic. It is dangerous to drive any further when the temperature warning light comes on as it could cause catastrophic damage to the engine parts.
How much does a coolant flush on Mini cost?
The cost to do a coolant flush ranges from about £70 to £150 depending on the make and model of the car and coolant used.
