I have a 2006 Mini Cooper Cabrio S. I live in Melbourne Australia.
In the last year, only a handful of times I've experienced the fan running after the ignition is turned off.
However, in the past couple of weeks, the fan kicks in almost every time after turning off the engine.
In addition, when driving, and idling at a red light, the temperature gauge will shoot up and redline, but with the fan kicking in on high, it will eventually drop back down. Or once I start driving again, it will drop down to middle again.
I will check the Coolant level in the morning, hopefully I find that it is low, and this is causing the temperature to redline.
If this is the case, do I need to purchase special coolant from Mini? Or what should I be looking for? Is this something I can top up myself?
Or should I take it in to Mini to let them top it up and flush etc?
