Under The Hood – Car Care Blog
Our first bit of advice is to read your owner’s manual. We offer general tips for checking vehicle items but your manual will give proper procedures according to your vehicles needs. Confirm and understand all the safety warning lights and stickers that may be under the hood and abide by those. Secondly, the engine will be hot if it has been running for any length of time. Fluids other than transmission should be checked on a cold engine. For safety, do not put your hands or clothing around any part of an engine that is running. If you are uncomfortable being around a running engine have your vehicle checked by a technician – Safety First.
