can they b done oe car or head must come off its a mini cooper ive never seen a cooper do this shit i wanna thank u for all of your input if anything else comes to mind gimme a shout or if anyone has heard something similar dont b shy i need as much info as i can get
it is definitely oil shes fine for a few miles then runs rough and starts to sputter and smoke
I tell ya what, get a combustion leak test done that will eliminate the cooling system or confirm if it is a head gasket leaking coolant into the cylinder. Test is bulletproof!!
