Mysterious Coolant Leak.....

I know that coolant leaks can be frustrating. I've had them before so I
decided to be proactive on my 200. Considering how old our cars are getting
I would highly recommend biting the bullett and doing a full on replacement
of all cooling hoses (might as well do the thermostat and heater valve while
you are at it). That is what I did when I bought my car a few months ago. I
also did the radiator and aux. radiator hoses a few weeks later. Now I have
the peace of mind knowing that my cooling system won't let me down. Just
order up the stuff from the famed sjmautotechnik.com website. His prices
were better than Blaufergnugen's.
