Coolant level question

894 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Rmac58
Hi folks,

When our W126s are left standing for almost a couple of years, does the coolant rest mostly in the radiator? I ask because mine had been standing and not driven for around this amount of time, and when I started her up tonight, the level in the reservoir looked very low.

1) Does it take more than 5 mins. for the plastic coolant reservoir to fill after a prolonged non-use of the car?

2) The driveway of my home is on a slight incline downwards - does this make the reservoir look lower than it actually is?

3) What line should it be at to be correctly and amply filled?

Cheers in advance,
