2007 mini cooper. No power, Increased fuel consumption and oil usage

Asked by Guru134Y9 Oct 01, 2019 at 04:19 AM about the 2007 MINI Cooper

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had my mini cooper of just over
a hear now. It is on 156 000km It is
using oil, fuel consumption is high and
has no power on up hills. I had the
clutch replaced, oil leaks repaired the
vanos solinoids replaced. But still no
change. This week the red oil light
started to come on when the car gets
hot. And flickers on and off while
driving. The oil is topped up and there
is water in the car. I have taken it for 2
diagnostic tests. Reason why the
solinoids was replaced. Also found
another oil leak. There are no other
warning lights eccept for the oil one. It
does not smoke. It idles fine. But
sounds a little rough. Please help

Mini's were built to be disposable. The car's probably worth less than $3,000 and now you're continuing to try to fix it. High Oil consumption alone should tell you that the engine's gone, and that means that the car's gone. Get rid of this beast.
