1994 C280 - Threaded hose from surge tank leak

Hi all,

I found a leak from the hose running from the surge tank the other day causing my car to overheat. The hose connects to the cap on top of the surge tank and runs towards the firewall.

Can anyone tell me where and what that hose is for? What does it connect to on the other end?

I also noticed that the coolant is very nasty\rusty so I flushed the system to clean it out and replace it. I had the radiator replaced a few years ago and regret not checking and making sure they used the MB coolant... Any pointers on getting the cooling system completely flushed out would be great.

Thank you!
