Radiator and Cooling Fan
Check and clean the grille, screen and radiator fins for obstruction by insects or
mud in accordance with the Periodic Maintenance Chart.
CAUTION: Using high-pressure water, as from a car wash facility, could damage
the radiator fins and impair the radiator’s effectiveness.
Do not obstruct or deflect airflow through the radiator by installing unauthorized ac-
cessories in front of the radiator or behind the cooling fan. Interference with the
radiator airflow can lead to overheating and consequent engine damage.
Coolant absorbs excessive heat from the engine and transfers it to the air at the
radiator. If the coolant level becomes low, the engine overheats and may suffer
damage. Check the coolant level each day before operating the vehicle, and re-
plenish coolant if the level is low. Change the coolant in accordance with the Peri-
odic Maintenance Chart.
