Question Maintaining 1990 300 e

My name is Bob and I reside in Las Vegas. The city that truly never sleeps. I am the original owner owner of a 1990 300e that now has 350000 miles.

Externally the car is in good shape. However, little issues are starting to consistently go wrong. The current issue is the low antifreeze indicator is now lit. When I checked the overflow it was empty. I filled this and 24 hours later it's empty again. There is no residue on the ground where the car is parked and the temperature gauge does not reach above 100. The upper radiator hose is relatively new, the lower hose is soft and tacky to the touch. The air conditioner does not cut on at the right times and the fans don't cut on as well.

I've decided to keep this car as it was my first benz and quite honestly, it runs well and there are no dents.

Any suggestions on the researching and or repairing the antifreeze problem would be helpful. I should mention that I have little experience repairing automobiles but since the car is, in NV a vintage auto, I want to learn to make these repairs myself.

I look forward to your help and support.
