Coolant
If there
is no coolant
in the reserve
tank,
check
the cooling
system
for
leaks and repair
if necessary.
m
Never
remove
the radiator
cap when
the engine
is hot.
The
coolant
is under
pressure
and severe
scalding
could
result.
Add coolant
to the radiator
and the reserve
tank,
then check
the coolant
level in the reserve
tank after
the engine
reaches
operating
temperature.
When
the engine
is at operating
temperature,
the coolant
level should
be
between
the MIN and MAX
marks
on the reserve
tank.
If the level is near
the MIN mark,
add coolant
to bring it up to the MAX
mark.

Recommendation
Use high quality
ethylene
glycol
antifreeze
that is specifically
formulated
for use in aluminum
engines.
Mix the antifreeze
with
low-mineral
drinking
water
or distilled
water.
A 50/50
mixture
of ethylene
glycol
antifreeze
and water
is recommended
for most
temperatures
and provides
good corrosion
protection.
A higher
concentration
of antifreeze
decreases
cooling
efficiency
and is recom-
mended
only if additional
protection
against
freezing
is needed.
A concen-
tration
of less than
40%
antifreeze
will
not
provide
proper
corrosion
protection.
(1
Th e use of unsuitable
antifreeze,
hard water,
or salt water
may
cause
corrosion
damage
that will shorten
the life of the engine.
