Engine Coolant Check


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 physician.

Note: 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, add coolant immediately.

Adding Engine Coolant


  • Only add coolant 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.
  • Undiluted coolant is flammable and may ignite if spilt on a hot exhaust.

Note: In an emergency, you can add just water to the cooling system to reach a vehicle service station. Have the system checked by an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Note: Prolonged use of incorrect dilution of the coolant can cause engine damage from corrosion, overheating or freezing. Note: Do not add coolant further than the MAX mark.

1. Remove the filler cap. Any pressure will escape slowly as you unscrew the cap.

2. Add a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water using fluid that meets the Ford specifications. See Capacities and Specifications

3. Replace the filler cap. Turn it until you feel a strong resistance.

Brake Fluid Check

Fluid levels between the MIN and MAX lines are within the normal operating range; there is no need to add fluid. If the fluid levels are outside of the normal operating range, the performance of the system could be compromised; seek service from your authorized dealer immediately.
