Hole in oil pan...need advice

Asked by Jun 19, 2014 at 11:53 AM about the 2014 MINI Cooper Coupe S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just got a brand new  Mini Cooper S that was special ordered.  The oil light came on and I was leaking oil.  I pulled over immediately and had the car looked at.  There is a hold in the oil pan.  Any ideas on if this is a sign of other problems or if the engine was likely damaged.  Should I be highly concerned?

Probably a manufacturing defect. As long as you pulled over right away, you should be fine and get a new oil pan with your warranty. The mini mechanics are the ones to ask the questions about the motor or other future problems. You can frequent some Mini Forums with like minded drivers like yourself and learn more about the car. Good Luck with your new purchase!
