96-SL500 Huge Oil Leak on Garage Floor
Went in the garage yesterday and saw an oil leak with probably at least a half quart of oil on the grage floor just from overnight. Oil was low so I filled it up and have taken it to the shop.

They have not had a chance to look at it today so I am asking for help in case someone else might have had this problem. I am hoping the problem is only a loose drain plug.

Update-It Appears to be Coolant
It was clear and felt like Mobil 1 yet shop called and says it was coolant. They had replaced all of the noses a couple of months ago and it looks like one worked itself loose.

What coolant do you run?

I am not sure. I had all hoses replaced by the third party MB repair shop.

If you run G-05, the yellow Zerex stuff, it looks very similar to oil.
