ml55 issues

I currently own a 2001 ml55 and I cant seem to get a dealer to help me with my issue.....Last week I sent the ML to mercedes for service "B" ....some time ago the (windshield washer cannister developed a leak)...They replaced it under warranty...The first day i had the vehicle back I drove to work (about 20 miles) the time I got to work and parked the windshield washer fluid was pouring out on the opposite side of the car what looks to be from an overflow hose?? (WEIRD)....When the vehicle is parked you can fill the cannister and it wont leak one bit...Only after the car heats up does the leak begin....ANY IDEAS? Also, at the time of the service B was performed, the dealer performed a radiator flush, when the vehicle is moving the temp is normal at about 80-90 degrees ...when at a dead stop (CALI traffic) the ML55 heats up to about 100+degrees before the radiator fans slightly cools it until I begin driving again.....Is this normal for an ML55...any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

RE: ml55 issues

There is an updated harness they install to kick the fans on when A/C is running. That may or may not help.

My 01 had washer problems as well. It had a leak. And was fixed. Sounds like a faulty install job. Bring it back.

100 degrees is nothing. normal operating temps for most vehicles is 195.
