Tips & Warnings


  • When the engine is hot - Never open the radiator cap when the engine is hot. Wait to for the engine to cool down first. You may get seriously burned if the cap is opened when the engine is still hot or warm. The cooling system may be under pressure and may spray hot coolant if the cap is removed, causing burns or other injuries
  • When towing - Due to the added load of the trailer, your vehicle's engine may overheat on hot days (at temperatures over 85°F [30°C]) when driving up a long or steep grade. If the engine coolant temperature gauge indicates overheating, immediately turn off the air conditioning (if in use), pull your vehicle off the road, and stop in a safe spot.
  • Coolant level keeps dropping -If the coolant level drops within a short time after replenishing Visually check the radiator, hoses, engine coolant filler cap, radiator cap, drain plug and water pump for leaks.  If you cannot find a leak, have a mechanic test the cap and check for leaks in the cooling system. 
  • When adding coolant - The coolant is neither plain water nor straight antifreeze. The correct mixture of water and antifreeze must be used to provide proper lubrication, corrosion protection and cooling. Be sure to read the antifreeze or coolant label.
