Cooling System Filling
Figure 2. Fill Cooling System.
Engine coolant is toxic to eyes and poisonous if ingested. Eye protection is required when
working with engine coolant. Avoid repeated or prolonged contact. Failure to comply may cause
injury or death to personnel.
Never use water alone for coolant. Corrosion can result from using water alone. Failure to
comply will cause damage to equipment.
If radiator cap is too hot to touch, do not remove it. Adding coolant to a hot engine can
damage engine castings. Allow engine to cool before adding coolant. Failure to comply may
cause damage to equipment.
Remove radiator cap (Figure 2, Item 3).
2. Prepare a 50/50 solution of half engine coolant and half water.
