Coolant Leak

  Mini Cooper S JCW

im about to buy a valver and i had it AA checked at the weekend, the report said the main problem with it was, it had a small coolant leak possiably from or around the head gasket.

the lad im buying it off has got it booked into Renault to fix the problem, but i was wondering if this is a major problem, and if it happened again, how much am i looking to fix it??

Cheers Marc

Can be an expensive job as it is best to have the head checked to make sure there is no cracks, but if the job is done properly by Renault you should not really have any problems in the near future, just make sure the cooling system is all in working order and you should be fine.
