Engine coolant check

Checking the coolant level
Checking the coolant level

CAUTION:
Make sure that the coolant level is between the MIN and the MAX marks.

Note: Coolant expands when it is hot.

The level may therefore extend beyond the MAX mark.

Topping up the coolant

WARNING:
Do not remove the coolant reservoir cap when the engine is hot. Wait for the engine to cool down.

Unscrew the cap slowly. Any pressure will escape slowly as you unscrew the cap.

WARNINGS:
Only add coolant when the engine is cold. If the engine is hot, wait 10 minutes for the engine to cool down.

Do not allow coolant to touch your skin or eyes. If this happens, rinse the affected areas immediately with plenty of water and contact your doctor.

CAUTION:
Do not spill coolant on any part of the engine.

Only add coolant that meets the Ford specification. See Technical specifications.
