Exclamation 1999 c280 coolant flush/heater core

I need to service my coolant system ASAP -Sept. 28th-2010
This is my first German Vehicle.. I love it, and need to replace and repair many little things that the previous owner has neglected to.

w/133,000 miles
First thing is My Heater core. I Have taken out my carpet to dry and glove box. Next I need to know what the steps are to drain/FILL my fluid CORRECTLY.
- First I patched the cracked reservoir (ordering a new one)
- Refilled coolant
- Heater + AC work when full
- looses a Gallon in 2.5 miles
- doesn't overheat but heater blows cold and wet after 2.0 miles
- Air in all lines
- circulating to all hoses ( air + water from hand pumping hoses )
- Pollen filter has never been changed (very dirty)
- After driving 2.5 miles it leaks on roadway in steady streams ( also under cal. induct=dash/floor )
- No loss of power
- No smoke
- No present signs of head gasket being out
- I have yet to order a factory repair manual or plug into a diagnostics...

Help if possible thanks - Nick
