I have a c240 1999 w202 and I have a problem with my coolant level. I have been using the vehicle for a year without having to top up coolant but one day after traveling a 1000km the coolant level light came up and when I checked I realized it had gone down to just below the half level. I topped up with a liter of coolant and another of water. since then I have to top it at least once a week yet before this I had gone for almost a year without the level changing what could be the problem, it seems the are no visible leaks. please help.
