HELP ME! My 1989 300E has a coolant leak and I can't find it. It's dripping between the driver's side engine block, towards the front of the engine, and the A/C compressor area. I don't think it's the waterpump, I checked that and it is dry. Are there any hoses or anything on the driver's side engine block at the front of the engine.

In your case, the coolant pump will appear to be dry, but there is a "weep" hole on the coolant pump that is not visible when you are looking at the top of the engine. When it does leak, it will drip onto the engine block and trickle down a complicated path until it reaches your garage floor.

Other than the hose from the pump to the radiator, there isn't much else to look for at that location...sorry.
