Why did my 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop S blow an oil gasket????
While traveling at 50 miles an hour my warning lights came on about low oil pressure
and that I should slowly pull over and turn engine off. I did so, and saw white smoke
coming out of the hood. I opened the hood to find oil spewed all over the engine, and
even on the back of the car. I called road side service and they transported the car to
the Mini dealership I had purchased the car from. They said it was a cracked oil gasket
that was connect to the vehicle not the replaceable seal, after oil changes are
performed. WHY did this happen? I feel unsafe driving this vehicle, it's a brand new car!
Parts fail sometimes. Just be glad your under warranty, and you weren't hurt. I wouldn't feel unsafe to drive it after repair. Just a gasket that let go.
