leak on my 1991 300 e 4 matic

Hi..I've just buyed mercedes 300 e 4matic 1991 in realy good shape.Well I've notice that It has a leak under the radiator but liquid is green and greecy..I don't know is it from A/C or radiator.White bucket under the hood contain same liquid and some kind of spiral heater in it..I am not sure what is it but that liquid is on the low level and I don't know how serious it is.On the instrument board lite is on with radiator on it.
What kind of liquid is it so I can refill it till I find someone who will solve my problem?
Thank you

the white bottle is your windshield wiper fluid reservoir.any green and greasy fluid under your rad probably indicates a cooling system leak.this should take priority

ilijaneli, green coolant is a no-no for MB automobiles. Once you have the leak fixed change to genuine MB coolant (amber color). If you are not a DIY'er best to take your MB to a knowledgeable, independent MB-trained tech to diagnose the source of the coolant leak. It could be lots of things ... leaking water pump, leaking hose, loose hose connection, etc. Best to have it repaired immediately before you end up stranded somewhere or overheat the engine.
