According: my 2005 mini cooper s seems to be overheating..park..fluids

Resolved Question:

my 2005 mini cooper s seems to be overheating - sounds like a fan is running after i park the car and turn it off. After this happened a couple of days in a row, i had all the fluids checked and filled according to previous brands used. Same thing keeps happening. No warning lights, but fluid temp goes up fairly quickly after starting and traveling a mile or two- sometimes to the highest point on the gauge. my nearest mini dealer is almost 2 hours away and I can't possibly drive there in an overheating car! Help! I'm a single woman and need some real help here. I'm on the verge of freakin out!

Hi there,


If the system is full of coolant and the fans are operating the first thing that needs to be done would be to try a new thermostat. This can be done at most independent repair shops.
