Customer Question

received a low coolant message. All dealers are closed now and I need to drive at least 250 miles tomorrow. Can I put water in with the coolant until I can get to a mercedes repair facility?

Hello David,

My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.

I would top up with water as necessary, and carry water in some bottles with you, until you get the car inspected, hopefully in a day or two.

Keep an eye on the level at each cold start.

Let them know you are topping it up with water as it will need a flush out, after the coolant loss is rectified.
