Page 71

MAINTENANCE Cooling System The engine coolant level is controlled or maintained by the recovery system... The recovery system components are the overflow bottle, radiator filler neck, radiator pressure cap and connecting hose... As coolant operating temperature increases, the expanding (heated) excess coolant is forced out of the radiator, past the pressure cap, and into the overflow bottle... As engine coolant temperature decreases, the contracting (cooled) coolant is drawn back up from the tank, past the pressure cap, and into the radiator... Some coolant level drop on new vehicles is normal as the system is purging itself of trapped air... Observe coolant levels and maintain as recommended by adding coolant to the overflow bottle...

Page 72

Radiator Coolant Level Always check and clean the screen and radiator fins at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart beginning on page 59... Do not obstruct or deflect air flow through the radiator by installing unauthorized accessories in front of the radiator or behind the cooling fan... Interference with the radiator air flow can lead to overheating and consequentially, engine damage... 1... Lift the hood... CAUTION! Escaping steam can cause burns... Never remove the pressure cap while the engine is warm or hot... Always allow the engine to cool before removing the pressure cap... 2... Slowly remove the radiator cap... 3...

Brake Fluid Inspect the brake system routinely... Inspect the level of the brake fluid before each operation... WARNING! After opening a bottle of brake fluid, always discard any unused portion... Never store or use a partial bottle... Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning it rapidly absorbs moisture from the air... The moisture causes the boiling temperature of the brake fluid to drop, which can lead to early brake fade and the possibility of accident or severe injury... Change the brake fluid every two years and any time the fluid becomes contaminated, the fluid level is below the minimum, or if the type and brand of the fluid in the reservoir are unknown... See page 61 for fluid recommendations... 1... Position the vehicle on a level surface... 2... View the brake fluid level at the reservoir
