FUEL GAUGE


FUEL GAUGE

The needle on the gauge indicates the approximate fuel level in the fuel tank. The fuel capacity is given in Section 9.

ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE


ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE GAUGE

WARNING:
Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot. The engine coolant is under pressure and could erupt and cause severe burns. Wait until the engine is cool before adding coolant to the reservoir.

The needle on the engine coolant temperature gauge should stay in the normal range. If it moves across the dial to "H" (HOT), pull over and stop as soon as possible and turn off the engine. Then open the hood and, after the engine has cooled, check the coolant level and the water pump drive belt. If you suspect cooling system trouble, have your cooling system checked by a Hyundai dealer as soon as possible.
