I have a 2006 MINI COOPER S..Motor mount..leaking..Engine compartment

This answer was rated:

I have a 2006 MINI COOPER S and what looks like a Motor mount is leaking black oily substance on my Engine compartment.

The black oily substance is engine oil.

The mounts have an hydraulic element that is driven by the engine oil system, the mount will need replacing as they can't be serviced and if the leak becomes much worse then you'll start having oil pressure issues whcih can seriously damage the engine

Matt, then how come my Engine Oil isn't that color and also my Engine Oil is full. And I should be able to drive it to a engine repair center, being I just spotted this, so this is something that has just started.

Matt, also where can I find a Chilton for my 2006 Mini Cooper S, so I can see if what I think looks like a Motormount is in fact one or not?

I sure do wish you would answer me again, cause I really need to drive my car right now.



the oil is being discoloured by the rubber seals breaking up I'd say, if you're unsure of what the part is you can post a picture on here using the littel green tree icon

as for a manual

As your ANSWER was totally CORRECT and I had my HYDRAULIC MOTOR MOUNT REPLACED today, and there is no more LEAKAGE of any kind! I just couldn't stand anything leaking under my HOOD of my 2006 MINI COOPER S, especially when it runs so GREAT! Thanks again, I am accepting your ANSWER.

No problem glad to help
