    Hi,

    Can anyone tell me the correct MB spec for coolant for a 2001 W210 E200K (111 engine) estate please? j.e. MB325.0, MB325.3 etc. Have a bit of a leak from the water pump at the moment. I am waiting for a replacement pump to arrive, but am unable to get to my nearest MB dealer for a couple of days to buy genuine MB coolant. My local autofactors only has Prestone and Bardahl but they don't know the spec. Was hoping to get some coolant locally to tide me over for a few days.

    Thanks,

    teddyk.

    When I replaced mine a few weeks back, I just went to the local shell garage and bought the coolant they had in stock.... dont know the spec, but ive had no problems.
    In the past ive also used Halfords Advanced, in the grey bottle... again without checking spec.. but also no problems using it

    Thanks Dan,

    Was thinking of going to my local Halfords too just to tide me over, though its quite a bit further to walk than my local independent motor factors. I'm just a bit unsure as I have read reports of incorrect spec coolants eating radiator welds/joints etc. Hopefully the Halfords stuff will be ok for the couple of days before I can get the correct one from MB.
