Had bad coolent hose up behind intake on 98 quest . temp never passed half way in gauge . engine light flashed serveral time and car died . unable to restart right away . 45 min later started rough run . made 10 miles died again . unable to put water back in but never passed 1/2 temp gauge . now can start once and keep running if on the fuel dies as soon in gear. cant restart until sits again

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

It blinked for 3 mins approx and died

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your MINI?

98

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

Took to shop was told cost more then mini worth , head gasket blown

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

To me it doesnt seem it head gasket and dont believe it got that hot . it never really pooped cracked and sizzle as hot motors do
