This chapter contains information on the following subjects:

 → Warning lamp and coolant temperature display  

 → Coolant specification  

 → Checking the coolant level and refilling coolant  

Never carry out any work on the engine coolant system if you are not familiar with the requisite procedures, or if you do not have access to the correct tools, operating equipment and fluids  .

Serious injuries can be caused if work is carried out incorrectly.
