My wife and I own a 2011 Mini Cooper S hardtop. I believe it’s the R56 model with a N18 engine it in. Last week the car went into limp mode the 2nd time on us in a month. This time when we hooked a computer up to it, it showed a misfire in cylinder 1&2. The car currently has 103,000 miles on it. I believe it had 94 or 96,000 on it when we purchased it as the 3rd owner. It has an excellent maintenance record with all maintenance done through two different Mini dealerships in the local area. I tried replacing the spark plugs and seen oil sitting on top of the piston in cylinder #2. I did not see much, if any oil in #1. When a friend of mine came to look, he suggested a overhaul, or complete engine replacement. I was just wondering what your thoughts were. I’m on a fairly tight budget and don’t have interest in trying to find a new/used car.
Was the engine consuming any oil prior to this incident?  Was the car running okay prior to this incident?  Was a compression check or leak down test performed?

I'm not sure what your friend checked to conclude that you need a new engine.


Q: We purchased the car in Nov of 2019.  About 6 months into owning it, we noticed small puffs of blue smoke and a small amount of oil consumption. The oil filter housing was leaking at that time.

We sent it to a Mini dealer and had that replaced. A couple months after, the blue smoke never went away and oil consumption got worse.

By the end of July and into August, it started using close to a quart of oil every 2 to 3 weeks. Depending on how much my wife drove. She’s unsure of her weekly mileage, but I’d say somewhere between 50 to 100 miles a week. Maybe up to 150 at times.

My buddy checked the turbo and saw more than normal back and forth play with the bearing in it, there is some, but not excessive oil in the intercooler lines, and he put a piece of paper over the oil fill cap and watched it sail in the wind. We haven’t done a leak down test, compression test, or a vacuum test as of right now. He only mentioned that a new motor may be the cheapest option, depending on how bad it is inside the motor.

I’ll try and do some tests today, I got ahold of my brother in laws computer to plug into it to see what codes there are. The cheap antique computer I used last time only showed a misfire in cylinder one and two. In #2, all I could see was oil on top of the piston through the spark plug hole and the spark plug covered in oil. Right now it barely idles and has a very hard time starting. Even after putting in new plugs.


There may be more than one issue going on....  The limp mode and misfire 'may' be related to the high pressure fuel pump  failure.  Since you mentioned the loose turbine wheel in the turbo, the oil in the exhaust 'can be' from the worn bearing in the turbo. You might read the product page for our replacement turbo here since it has a lot of important information about replacing the turbo.

The oil in the exhaust can also be worn piston rings (which will show as low compression or poor leak down test) or worn valve guides (where there may be oil residue on the intake valves when viewed thru the intake ports of the cylinder head).

These are all speculations since it is very difficult to diagnose thru forum postings...  It may be something I mentioned, or the problem might be caused by something entirely different....

Sorry we can't be more help.
