Mini Cooper Oil Leak Repair in Stockton CA

Mini Cooper vehicles are fun to drive but they’ve been known to develop oil leaks. At Toole’s Garage Stockton we offer complete Mini Cooper services including oil leak repair. So how can you tell if your Mini is leaking oil? Oil spots in the garage or on the driveway are, obviously, a dead giveaway (check that it’s oil, not just water from the ac system condensation). But monitoring oil level is also a good practice. If you notice that you have to add engine oil between regular oil changes, it may indicate an oil leak – let your mechanic know at the next oil change. If the oil is leaking on the engine part that gets hot, you may smell a strong, pungent odor from the engine area. If you notice any of these symptoms, let us know when you bring your Mini for a checkup. Common Areas/Causes of Mini Cooper Oil Leaks Damaged components, like O-rings or valve cover gasket are prime suspects when it comes to oil leaks. Worn out seals, like the crankshaft seal, could ... read more

Properly maintained Prius can easily go 300,000 miles or more. During that time it may need inverter replacement.

Many vehicles had the work completed, but many may have sustained thermal damage before the recall was issued. As a result, these inverters may have to be replaced. This is in addition to inverter failure due to age and use - an event that is to be expected due to the longevity of Prius vehicles.
