WARNING

While working in the engine compartment, always observe the safety precautions. See SAFETY IN THE GARAGE.

WARNING

Do not start the engine, or drive the vehicle, if leaked fluid could possibly make contact with a hot surface. Any leaked fluid coming into contact with a hot surface, such as the exhaust, could result in combustion. Seek qualified assistance immediately.
