Coolant Level Check

WARNING
!
To help avoid danger of being burned, do not
remove radiator cap while engine and
radiator are still hot. Scalding fluid and steam
can be blown out under pressure if radiator
cap is taken off too soon.
To check level, lift hood and look at "see-through"
coolant reservoir.
It is not necessary to remove radiator cap to check
coolant level.
When engine is cool, check coolant level in reservoir (1).
A normal coolant level should be between FULL mark
(2) and LOW mark (3) on reservoir (1).
If coolant level is below LOW mark (3), remove reservoir
cap (4) and add proper coolant to reservoir to bring
coolant level up to FULL mark (2).
NOTE
If proper quality antifreeze is used, there is
no need to add extra inhibitors or additives
that claim to improve system. They may be
harmful to proper operation of system, and
are unnecessary expense.
