John Cooper Works 2007

Hello my name is Robert and I reside in Cali.

I recently purchased a 2007 Mini Cooper JCW edition. Love the car but I have a small dilemma and I want to see who can help me. I know everyone has heard about the coolant leak (tank inflation). I been researching a lot and I add the right amount of anti-freeze but I'm not sure what brand to use. But anyways I add the amount and I could drive for the whole day but once I park my mini I hear something bubbling and as i open the hood is the coolant bubbling to the tip top and it starts to leak from the sides of the cap.

Any advice or feedback please let me know.

Thank you Mini2 Team

2nd Gen JCW models were introduced until the 2009 model year ... unless you have a 2007 Cooper S with a JCW Tuning Kit.

Please verify what year and model you have ...
