| | 2003 Mini Cooper S Engine Noise and Gas Smell, please help!!
Hello! I have a 2003 Mini Cooper S with about 120000 mile on it. Recently, when starting my mini, after running about 10 minutes the engine starts making a noise that can only be described and chunky and ticking. It doesn't start this way, and when I'm driving the noise goes away at speed, but when I slow down or stop, it sounds horrible. What can this be? Any thoughts are much appreciated! Also, can smell gas when driving.
