I'm not familiar with your model of MB; however, there are some basic principles that apply across the board.

- Many T-Stats have an air bleed valve on them that must be positioned at the highest level.

- You may have introduced air into the system when the coolant was changed.

- What mixture of coolant-to-water is now being used vs. before? Excessive coolant can cause increased temps. as coolant does not disperse heat very well.

Liberty Firearms Training - After years of trying to regulate California criminals with a never ending stream of gun control laws they have still not given up with the belief that if they make something a crime that criminals will miraculously start obeying the law.
