Hi guys, just want to see if anyone has had the same problem as us with this particular model or whether it is across the board with minis from
Bought the Mini one around 3 years ago, the other half really wanted one but couldn't afford a new one so she opted for the 2008 1.4, with about 65k
miles on the clock. Had no issues for a year then it Clunking as it started idling after coming to a halt. She told me, I took a look and there was no
oil and no coolant in the system.
So put some oil in, coolant in etc, within a few days, coolant had gone again. Took it to the garage, and they replaced the thermostat and housing.
A year later, it's happened again. Twice.
Long story short, is this a common fault or is there something we can do to stop the car destroying thermostat housings? Thanks.
