WARNING

  • Before closing the hood, ensure that all obstructions are removed from the hood opening. Closing the hood with an obstruction present in the hood opening may result in property damage or severe personal injury.
  • Do not leave gloves, rags or any other combustible material in the engine compartment. Doing so may cause a heat-induced fire.
