Can you guess? In the center of America, Waynesville, Ohio, it's 10 degrees, and it's cold outside baby!

A perfect day to check your antifreeze. Just a simple specific gravity tester will do the job:

Make sure all your balls are floating to the top. If they are, you have -35F or the recommended level of protection. If you need to add some, get the Pentosin Blue stuff:

Pelican Parts or FCEuro are two sources for this and other Mercedes parts. A word of caution. Don't add antifreeze straight, mix it with tap water first in a 50-50 mix. For yourselves, you can take a couple of nips straight.:grin:

BTW, pull out your dipsticks and marvel at the miracle of synthetic oil!:nerd:
