When trouble arises Steps to take in an emergency
If your vehicle overheats

If your engine overheats:

  1. Stop the vehicle in a safe place and turn off the air conditioning system.
  2. Check to see if steam is coming out from under the hood.

    If you see steam:
    Stop the engine. Carefully lift the hood after the steam subsides and then restart the engine.

    If you do not see steam: Leave the engine running and carefully lift the hood.

  3. Check to see if the cooling fans are operating.

    If the fans are operating: Wait until the high engine coolant temperature warning light goes off and then stop the engine.

    If the fans are not operating: Stop the engine immediately and call your Toyota dealer.

After the engine has cooled

After the engine has cooled down sufficiently, check the engine coolant level and inspect the radiator core (radiator) for any leaks.

Add engine coolant if necessary.

Add engine coolant if necessary.

Water can be used in an emergency if engine coolant is unavailable.

Have the vehicle checked at the nearest Toyota dealer as soon as possible.

■Overheating

If you observe the following, your vehicle may be overheating:

●The rightmost segment of the engine coolant temperature display is flashing or a loss of power is experienced.

●Steam comes out from under the hood.

CAUTION
■To prevent an accident or injury when inspecting under the hood of your vehicle
●If steam is seen coming from under the hood, do not open the hood until the steam has subsided. The engine compartment may be very hot, causing serious injuries such as burns.

●Keep hands and clothing away from the fans and drive belt while the engine is running.

●Do not loosen the coolant reservoir cap while the engine and radiator are hot.

Serious injury, such as burns, may result from hot coolant and steam released under pressure.

NOTICE
■When adding engine coolant Wait until the engine has cooled down before adding engine coolant.

When adding coolant, do so slowly. Adding cool coolant to a hot engine too quickly can cause damage to the engine.
