Green Fluid

55

Asked by Jun 19, 2008 at 02:02 PM about the 1995 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 280 Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just purchased a 95 Mercedes C280. I ran the air condition (not for the first time) and once turning off the car as well as turning off the AC I noticed green fluid leaking from underneath the car. Can someone please tell me what this is? Should I give this car back to the Mercedes guy as soon as possible?
When I bought the car I did run the AC and didn't notice any fluids leaking. Oh I forgot to mention that I added coolant after purchased.

Please Help!

sounds like either coolant or brake fluid. maybe winshield wiper fluid, but i doubt it.

90% certain it's coolant leaking... I've never seen green brake fluid... Brown, Blue, or Gold are the only colors I've seen brake fluid come in Washer fluid isn't dyed very dark and you likely wouldn't be able to tell what color it is on the ground. If you just added coolant to the resevoir and it started doing it, then you might have a crack in the coolant resevoir... If the coolant level just keeps dropping then you have a leak and take it to a mechanic and have the system pressure tested for leaks.

Hi I'm going the opposite way lol Mine does this too now and then I believe it's oil coming from the Ac compressor Most r12 has a die in it just for this reason
