Checking Things Under the Hood

WARNING:
An electric fan under the hood can start up and injure you even when the engine is not running.
Keep hands, clothing, and tools away from any underhood electric fan.

WARNING:
Things that burn can get on hot engine parts and start a fire. These include liquids like fuel, oil, coolant, brake fluid, windshield washer and other fluids, and plastic or rubber. You or others could be burned. Be careful not to drop or spill things that will burn onto a hot engine.
