Engine coolant check

Checking the coolant level

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

CAUTION:
Make sure that the 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.

If the level is at the MIN mark, top up immediately.

Topping up

WARNINGS:
Only top up when the engine is cold.

If the engine is hot, wait 10 minutes for the engine to cool down.

Do not remove the filler cap when the engine is running.

Do not remove the filler 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.

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

Do not top up further than the MAX mark.

Top up with fluid that meets the Ford specification. See Technical specifications.
