    As part of the Winter/Spring maintenance (vehicle is currently in hibernation) I'm going to replace the thermostat on the M113 engine together with a list of other things to do and I was thinking of proceeding with the cooling system flush and replacement.

    What coolant should I be using? MB stuff or other type with MB approval? What is the correct fluid code for the MB coolant?

    I live in an area with very hard water. Should I fill and mix with distilled or filtered water?

    Thanks for any tips.

    I use MB coolant but there are lots of good branded coolants. Just stick to the same colour thats in there. Mixing isnt advised.
