Understanding Tractor Engine Coolant
We want to teach you all about engine coolant to help your tractor run cooler and last longer.
If you do not feel that you understand these tips, steps, and strategies, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic.
NOTE: There are a few important things to know before servicing your coolant.
Here are some ways to help you keep from getting scalded when servicing your coolant:
Never remove the radiator cap if the engine is hot. Steam and hot engine coolant will spurt out and seriously burn you.
Allow the engine to cool down before you attempt to remove the radiator cap.
Tighten the radiator cap securely after you check the radiator. Steam can spurt out during engine operation if the cap is loose.
Always check the level of the engine coolant by observing the reserve tank.
Failure to comply will result in death or serious injury.
Here are some ways to help you keep from getting burned when servicing your coolant:
Wait until the engine cools before you drain the engine coolant. Hot engine coolant may splash and burn you.
Failure to comply could result in death or serious injury.
