WARNING


  • Do not remove the radiator cap when the engine and radiator are hot. Scalding hot fluid and steam may be blown out under pressure, which could cause serious injury. Be sure to wait until the engine has cooled.

When the hissing sound has stopped, press down on the cap while turning it counterclockwise, and then remove the cap.
