Exclamation 1995 S500 over-heat issues

Hey everyone.

My dad has a 1995 Mercedes S-500 that's having over-heat issues. Now he has taken it to Mercedes shops, to local shops, each time paying the 75-150/hour to just inspect and is getting tired of doing so because no one can find a problem. However, when hes driving on a warmer day here in California for more than 20-30 minutes, the overheat gauge comes on the dashboard and sends the car into overheating. He has to pull over let it sit. The other day, he found lots of coolant he believe under the car after leaving it parked for several minutes.

No one can figure out what the heck it is, but if anyone has any ideas on what he should check, that would be huge. Please let me know and I'll forward the message. Thanks!

has a coolant flush been performed? Have they made sure the auxiliary fan is working? Post in the 140 section and you will probably get more suggestions.
