More Stupid Question From A Newbie
As a newbie Mini owner i have some more daft questions.....Can anyone answer some basic questions:
What is the best oil to use? I have a 2011 Cooper Convertible used on UK roads.
Any tips on reading the dipstick?....I find it really difficult to read....so I feel like the dipstick!
On the engine what is the round shaped item on the side of the cyclinder head, right hand side as viewed from the front, seems to run off the exhaust side cam shaft. It has a black plastic pipe that comes out of the top and seems to go into the vehicle via the bulkhead. The pipe is similar to the ones used for fuel. When the engine runs this item ticks away. No problems just intrigued to know what it does.
