Our Approach

Your MINI may be compact and efficient, but its engine still generates a lot of heat, even without factoring in the extreme Texas temperatures. Without properly regulating the engine’s temperature the engine would quickly overheat, causing damage to not only the cooling system components but the engine itself. The cooling system carries heat from the engine into the radiator, and that heat is then dispersed into the outside air. If any part of your cooling system isn’t operating properly, from the water pump to the thermostat, your engine could overheat and expensive damage could occur.

If you suspect your cooling system isn’t working quite right; if you’ve noticed a leak, or you’ve noticed your temperature gauge is climbing, bring your vehicle to Terry Sayther Automotive for a MINI cooling system repair. Our professional MINI specialists will perform an accurate and complete diagnosis and repair while ensuring you are completely satisfied with your experience. Whether the radiator is leaking, the thermostat is stuck closed, your heater core is plugged, or you just need a routine cooling system flush, Terry Sayther Automotive can do it for you precisely and reliably.
