Customer Question

2008 Mini Cooper S Clubman. Steering locks up. Sometimes feels like power steering failed, will turn but requires great effort. Sometimes feels as if the steering lock hasn't released, like it hits a stop and bounces back. Happens at low speed after the car has sat parked (engine running or not) sometimes after backing up out of driveway or parking space. There is another problem where the car slowly loses coolant.
