Hi all , just joined need some help with my 09 C220 , been losing coolant for a couple of months but as I thought it would get worse , took it to my indie he says he thinks it’s the oil cooler , but has no interest in doing it as he’s moving abroad and said it’s a bad job labour intensive , wondering if anyone has had this fault and if it’s possible to diy any thoughts or direction to any videos would be great
Cheers David

Hi and welcome. Where are you based - there are some highly recommended Independent MB specialists we can recommend that could help. I've no experience of this myself.

Hi j0hn0
I have a 204 and had a coolant leak was told it was cooler but turned out to be thermostat housing and water pump, all good now.

Thanks for all your advise , I have new info , I have been in touch with a Merc specialist in Liverpool ,( ellsmere port is a bit far away if I have to leave the car there)he said the most probable cause is either the fuel filter housing or an egr seal , I had a look and there is coolant around the plastic housing on the fuel filter , it’s going in this week will let you know how it goes
