It could very well be a tired pressure cap or the expansion tank itself is losing pressure. If you see no leakage on/around the expansion tank, try a new pressure cap. On other non-MB cars, I've also experienced this problem if there was air in the system; that sort of thing generally occurs right after a coolant flush/refill.

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.
