Common MINI Cooper Service and Repairs Performed
Loud Squealing and/or Grinding Noise with Lack of Power in R50 R52 R53 Chassis
The most common culprit for squealing and grinding noises in these vehicles is the harmonic balancer failing and coming apart. The squealing and grinding is a result of the outer ring slipping on the inner ring of the balancer. If driven this way can also lead to the outer ring of the balancer grinding into the lower timing chain housing causing more damage.
Rough Running, Loud Rattle at Start Up in N14 Turbocharged Cooper S Models
Often times, the timing chain tensioner is “not extending” far enough (according to MINI) to maintain tension on the timing chain. The correct repair is to replace the timing chain with guide rails and tensioner. While not a trivial repair, if left and not repaired in time the timing chain can jump timing allowing the valves to collide with the pistons causing extensive engine damage. The Auto Clinic can service your MINI before such a catastrophic event occurs.
Inside Door Handle Not Working
The inside door release handle cable becomes dislodged from the latch housing due to its design. This can be repaired by putting a piece of friction tape on the cable and placing it back into the latch housing.
Rough Running, Check Engine Light N14 Turbocharged Cooper S Models
One common problem with these engines is a “carbon sludge buildup” on the intake valves. Restricting airflow into the cylinders causing a rough running and misfiring of the affected cylinders. Proper fix is to remove the intake manifold and remove the buildup without damaging the valves. The Auto Clinic has the tools to quickly perform this repair important repair.
Slow Coolant Leak on All MINI Coopers
The plastic thermostat housing on the engine warps over time, causing a continues but slow coolant leak. The appropriate repair is replacement of the housing and thermostat. Be careful, there are a lot of aftermarket knockoff thermostat housings available, and we have seen many cases of other shops using cheap housings which leads to customers coming to us for a coolant leak from their “newly” replaced housings.

Extremely friendly. Extra knowledgeable people. Good and fair prices. Nobody gives it for free. So they are very fair. Good place to go for parts and services!!!
I had a good experience there with my Volvo which not a lot of other mechanics seemed to know about because its a foreign car. They even took the time to break down exactly what they needed to fix my car and even showed me the parts that needed fixed due to being damaged that definitely needed to changed lol. Would I take my car back In the future for other issues? Of course!!
The best import shop in Mansfield.
Thank you for giving us piece of mind by going over the used car we were about to purchase.
We have brought various vehicles (domestic and imports) to The Auto Clinic (Mansfield, Ohio) for two decades. Beside exemplary work, Auto Clinic provides extraordinary customer service. You'll find timely, clear communication from everyone at the shop and work done expertly and on time!
I have been taking my cars to The Auto Clinic for over 8 years. I trust them to do the right thing and make me aware of future items to watch for. I travel from Columbus to have my cars maintained here. The knowledge and skill the technicians possess have saved me countless dollars. I find the price for parts and labor to be in line with other shops, but you cannot put a price on the experience and craftsmanship they deliver.
I've been taking my cars to Auto Clinic for at least 8 years and have always been pleased with their work. In addition, I trust them absolutely. As to their prices, I'm a car guy and I can say they are very fair. They've actually saved me money. I sent one person to them and they gave her a price, she went to another garage that gave her a lower bid. By the time she was done with the second garage she actually paid more than she would have at AC. You get what you pay for.
Great quality work. Worth the extra cash! Only recommend these guys!
