Once that starts leaking you have no choice but to change the water pump. you can leave it for abit... but suddenly it will leak at a rather rapid rate.... considering the damage that can be done from overheating the motor.... having the water pump changed would be a better investment.

Sunroof slider for s320 stops after 6 inches


I had a 94 s420 and now my 96 s320 same problem. nothing with lubricating but u can try buying some. I was told Mercedes come from Germany where it always is cool or cold. they have an inuation made of this hard like tar material. you may even see it on your glass and see some chunks that feel off after time and time being heated here in the northeast or where your from. I know my cars interior reaches at times in the summer sometimes 120f. If you take down the headliner u should be able to see if it is that tar board insulation. I just leave mine closed.

My 96 Jimmy leaks coolant from below, sometimes worse than other times. What's the problem do you think? How expensive? Thanks! Gordon


Look at the water pump. These will usually leak more when the engine is cold, such as when it sits over night, and can sometimes stop leaking all together when the engine is warm. There is a breather hole in the pump, right below the fan blade, and that's usually where you'll find the leak. See if the lower hose has a coolant stain on the bottom of it. follow it up to the water pump and you should probaly see the breather hole leaking.

I have coolant leaking from underneath my 1998 Chevrolet Lumina


Water pump is located in the center of the left side. If you remove the plate you mentioned, you can probably see it. It is probably the source of the leak. The seals are prone to go bad in them.
