Before checking or servicing in the engine compartment

WARNING

● Always stop the engine and apply the parking brake to prevent the vehicle from moving.

● Always let the engine cool down. Engine parts become very hot when the engine is running and remain hot for some time after the engine is stopped.

● Do not spill engine oil, engine coolant, brake fluid or any other fluid on hot engine components. This may cause a fire.

● Always remove the key from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is in the УONФ position, the cooling fan may operate suddenly even when the engine is stopped.

● Before performing any servicing on a vehicle equipped with a remote engine start system temporarily place that system in the service mode to prevent it from unexpectedly starting the engine.
