Coolant.

WHO makes&supplies coolant to MB?,
& How much's required for a top up?,
As my coolant level indicator (on dashboard) intermittingly appears on &off doesn't stay on all the time.

Do a search on this site with the word "coolant". It has been tackled quite a few times.

The coolant is made by BASF, however you can't buy it from them. Any decent independent MB parts supplier can help you. It is a greeny blue colour. NOT fluro green.

I just bought mine form the "stealership" Silverstar Motors Doncaster cost me $32.91 inc for 1 litre container,
BUT one of the interpreters made a mistake&charged me for 2 litres,
Which i didn't etc need,
So instead of a refund he's going to deliver leather conditioner&polish (car polish),
Werner/Wilhelm won't know themselves after some "elbow grease& &"spit&polish" bot in&outside! :).

Next time. Drive down to 3 point Fairfield. It should be 30% cheaper there.
If you have the any bright green stuff in then you will need to flush everything out and start again with Blue

That's a bit expensive, we sold it for $18.50 a 1.5lt bottle when we had the spar parts business.
