Safety

When working use caution and look for signs like the ones below.

SAFETY FIRST: Protective gloves and eyewear are recommended at this point.

WARNING

  • Before running the engine, make sure that the working area is well-ventilated. Never run the engine in a closed area. The exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide gas which may cause death to people.
  • Gasoline is extremely flammable and is explosive under some conditions. The working area must be well-ventilated and do not smoke or allow flames or sparks near the working area or fuel storage area.

 

NOTE: Always wear safety glasses when using compressed air and never point it directly at yourself or anyone else.

WARNING:Removing the radiator cap while the engine is hot can allow the coolant to spray out, seriously scalding you. Always let the engine and radiator cool down before removing the radiator cap.

CAUTION:Radiator coolant is toxic. Keep it away from eyes, mouth, skin and clothes.

• If any coolant gets in your eyes, rinse them with water and consult a physician immediately.

• If any coolant in swallowed, induce vomiting, gargle and consult a physician immediately.

• If any coolant gets on your skin or clothes, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

 

Inexperienced technicians without the correct tools and knowledge may not be able to perform these jobs as intended. Caution needs to be taken for the vehicle and its operator as serious injury can occur. Always read a procedure in its entirety before attempting any repairs.
