After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2018 Cooper Countryman’s oil should be changed according to Mini’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Cooper Countryman may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mini if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mini Cooper Countryman. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2018 Mini Cooper Countryman Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mini Cooper Countryman motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mini Cooper Countryman engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mini Cooper Countryman oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mini exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Mini Cooper Countryman? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Mini Cooper Countryman oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is my Mini Cooper Countryman oil light illuminated? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Mini Cooper Countryman oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my Mini Cooper Countryman? It's recommended that you replace your Mini Cooper Countryman oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
