Cooper S hardtop: I have a '08 mini hardtop S. The engine light

Customer Question

I have a '08 mini hardtop S. The engine light came on and a tech checked it out and suggested I change valve cover gasket. Did that along with plug gaskets, one had a lot of oil in it. Light is still on, how would I clear it or does it do it by itself, assuming that was the problem?
Thanks, Patrick

Hi I'm kevin you will have to have codes removed from system using scan tool. The valve cover has a breather valve combined and are a very common failure

What is it called and where is it located? I can't find a "valve cover breather valve" part.
