FLUID FILLER LOCATIONS

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.

WARNING

Always observe the safety precautions when working in the engine compartment. Potentially serious injury or death may result.

NOTES

For more information on safety precautions, see SAFETY IN THE GARAGE
