Question 1987 300E Questions.

Hello! I recently acquired an '87 300E that had been stored inside for over 5 years. Everything seems fine, except that there is a noticable whine from the auto trans when driving, especially at low speeds. It's not terribly loud, but is a concern. She seems to shift fine, although a bit abrupt. Anything I should be aware of? Also, the last two mornings the idle has gone up and down until she warms up. I'm thinking vacuum leak? Also, today 06/09 She started losing coolant from somewhere under the intake manifold. A bunch ran out when I stopped at a store, so added a gallon to get home. When I arrived the leak had disappeared. Later there was a small amount under the car. The AC was not on. Any ideas. Thanks for any assistance, I may have placed this in the wrong spot, as no one has replied to my plea for help as yet. Mike in Rockaway Beach, Oregon.
