Question about 1997 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Have a belt sqealing and antifreeze in the engine bay on a 1997 230c mercedes sounds like sqeal is coming from the rear of the motor? Belt on front is intact. Motor did heat up? Can't see anything obvious except for the small amout of coolant in engine bay.
There is a good chance your waterpump bearings failed, and your belt was getting dragged over the drive pulley. Since your engine got hot, the impeller that moves coolant could have broken, so you should investigate that. The coolant could have leaked out the weap hole on the front of the water pump.
