Re: [MBZ] w126 coolant leak just ahead of rear transmission mount.

2023-07-19 Thread Karl Wittnebel via Mercedes
I thought the same thing about antifreeze smell if the heater core was
leaking; my wagon heater core has had a leak like that for at least a
decade and it always smells a tiny bit when it first comes on. Gotta be a
heater hose. Thanks.

Ours had a leaky heater hose just off the back of the engine.  It was a bit
swollen, and would only leak sometimes.  P/N 126 832 12 94 for the right
side hose.  (Left is 126 832 28 94.)

The heater doesn't have to be on, the entire coolant system is pressurized
at all times, whether there's flow or not.

I'd think you'd smell antifreeze in the air from the vents if the heater core 
was leaking.

Another possibility is one of the heater hoses along the firewall, if leaking 
could be dripping down onto the transmission.
