A WORD ABOUT YOUR KEYS The dealer that sold you your new vehicle has the key code numbers for your vehicle locks. These numbers can be used to order duplicate keys fr om your dealer . Ask your dealer for these numbers and keep them in a safe place.
immediately after the ignition switch is turned on for a bulb check. Afterwar ds, if the bulb remains on, this indicates a problem with the electr onics. If the bulb begins to flash after the bulb check, this indicates that an invalid key has been used to start the vehicle.
consists of programming a blank key to the vehicle electronics. A blank key is one which has never been programmed. NOTE: When having the Sentry Key Immobilizer System serviced, bring all vehicle keys with you to the dealer . Customer Key Programming Y ou can program new keys to the system if you have two valid sentry keys by doing the following: 1.
STEERING WHEEL LOCK Y our vehicle is equipped with a passive steering wheel lock. This lock prevents steering the vehicle without the ignition key . If the steering wheel is rotated no more than 1/2 turn in either direction and the key is not in the ignition switch, the steering wheel will lock.
W ARNING! When leaving the vehicle always remove the key from the ignition lock, and lock your vehicle. Do not leave children unattended in the vehicle, or with access to an unlocked vehicle. Unsupervised use of vehicle equipment may cause severe personal inju- ries and death.
Child-Protection Door Lock System (Rear Doors) T o provide a safer envir onment for children riding in the rear seat, the r ear doors of your vehicle have the child- protection door lock system. T o use the system, open each rear door and slide the control UP to engage the locks and DOWN to disengage the child-protection locks.
INTERNAL EMERGENCY TRUNK LID RELEASE W ARNING! Do not allow children to have access to the trunk, either by climbing into the trunk from outside, or through the inside of the vehicle. Always close the trunk lid when your vehicle is unattended. Once in the trunk, young children may not be able to escape, even if they entered through the rear seat.
REMOTE KEYLESS ENTR Y This system allows you to lock or unlock the doors and trunk or activate the panic alarm fr om distances up to about 23 feet (7 meters) using a hand held transmitter . NOTE: A slight delay of up to two seconds can occur before the doors or tr unk will unlock.
T o Unlock the T runk Press the TRUNK button on the transmitter twice to unlock the trunk. NOTE: A slight delay of up to two seconds can occur before the tr unk unlatches. Using The Panic Alarm T o turn on the panic alarm feature, pr ess and release the P ANIC button.
General Information This device complies with FCC rules part 15. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference and (2) This device must accept any interference that may be r eceived, in- cluding interference that may cause undesir ed operation.
POWER WINDOWS The window switches on the driver’s door panel control both front windows. The switch on the passenger’s door panel controls the passenger’s window . OCCUP ANT RESTRAINTS Some of the most important safety features in your vehicle are the r estraint systems.
W ARNING! In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you are not properly buck- led up. Y ou can strike the interior of your vehicle or other passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and others in your vehicle are buckled up properly .
W ARNING! • W earing a seat belt incorrectly is dangerous. Seat belts are designed to go around the large bones of your body . These are the strongest parts of your body and can take the forces of a collision the best. • W earing your belt in the wrong place could make your injuries in a collision much worse.
2. The seat belt latch plate is above the back of the front seat, next to your arm in the rear seat. Grasp the latch plate and pull out the belt. Slide the latch plate up the webbing as far as necessary to allow the belt to go around your lap. 3. When the belt is long enough to fit, insert the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.
4. Position the lap belt across your thighs, below your abdomen. T o remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. T o loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A snug belt reduces the risk of sliding under the belt in a collision.
W ARNING! A frayed or torn belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no protection. Inspect the belt system periodically , checking for cuts, frays, or loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately . Do not disassemble or modify the system.
Lap/Shoulder Belt Untwisting Procedure Use the following procedur e to untwist a twisted lap/ shoulder belt. 1. Position the latch plate as close as possible to the anchor point.
2. At about 6 to 12 inches above the latch plate, grasp and twist the belt webbing 180° to create a fold that begins immediately above the latch plate. 3. Slide the latch plate upward over the folded webbing. The folded webbing must enter the slot at the top of the latch plate.
Keep the belt low so that it does not come across the abdomen. That way the strong bones of the hips will take the force if ther e is a collision. Seat Belt Extender If a seat belt is too short, even when fully extended and when the adjustable upper shoulder belt anchorage (if equipped) is in its lowest position, your dealer can provide you with a seat belt extender .
If the vehicle is equipped with side airbags, they are located inside the driver and front passenger seats, and their covers are also labeled SRS AIRBAG. NOTE: Airbag covers may not be obvious in the interior trim; but they will open to allow airbag deploy- ment.
Airbags inflate in moderate to high speed impacts. Along with the seat belts, front airbags work with the instr u- ment panel knee bolsters to provide impr oved protection for the driver and front passenger . Side airbags also work with seat belts to improve occupant pr otection.
If a child from 1 to 12 years old must ride in the fr ont passenger seat because the vehicle is crowded, move the seat as far back as possible, and use the proper child restraint. See the section on Child Restraint. Y ou should read the instructions pr ovided with your child restraint to make sur e that you are using it properly .
Airbag System Components The front airbag system consists of the following: • Airbag Control Module (ACM) • AIRBAG Readiness Light • Driver Airbag • Passenger Airbag • Steering Wheel and Column • Instrument Panel • Crash Sensor • Interconnecting W iring • Knee Impact Bolsters The side airbag system, if equipped, consists of the following: • AIRBAG Readiness Light (shared with the fr ont airbag system) • Side Airbag in the Driver’s Seat • Side Airbag in the Passenger’s Seat • Right and Left Side Impact Airbag Control Modules (SIACM) • Interconnecting W iring How The Airbag System W orks Front Airbag System • The front Airbag Control Module determines if a frontal collision is sever e enough to require the airbags to inflate.
• The Airbag Control Module also turns on the AIRBAG light in the instrument panel for 6 to 8 seconds when the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN, then turns the light off. If it detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it turns on the light either momen- tarily or continuously .
• The knee impact bolsters help protect the knees and position you for the best interaction with the front airbag. If A Deployment Occurs The airbag system is designed to deploy when the Airbag Control Module detects a moderate-to-sever e frontal collision, to help restrain the driver and fr ont passenger , and then to immediately deflate.
W ARNING! Deployed airbags can’t protect you in another colli- sion. Have the airbags replaced by an authorized dealer as soon as possible. Side Airbag System — If Equipped • The Side Impact Airbag Control Modules determine if a side collision is severe enough to r equire the airbag to inflate.
Maintaining Y our Airbag Systems W ARNING! • Modifications to any part of the airbag system could cause it to fail when you need it. Y ou could be injured because the airbags are not there to protect you. Do not modify the components or wiring, including adding any kind of badges or stickers to the steering wheel hub trim cover or the upper right side of the instrument panel.
Children 12 years and under should ride pr operly buck- led up in a rear seat, if available. According to crash statistics, children ar e safer when properly restrained in the rear seats, rather than in the fr ont. W ARNING! In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby , can become a missile inside the vehicle.
• Children who weigh mor e than 20 lbs (9 kg) and who are older than one year can ride forwar d-facing in the vehicle. Forward-facing child seats and convertible child seats used in the forward-facing dir ection are for children who weigh 20 to 40 lbs (9 to 18 kg) and who are older than one year .
• The restraint must be appr opriate for your child’s weight and height. Check the label on the restraint for weight and height limits. • Carefully follow the instr uctions that come with the restraint. If you install the r estraint improperly , it may not work when you need it.
the rear seat to install the child r estraint. Y ou will easily feel them if you run your finger along the intersection of the surfaces. The lower strap hooks are passed over the top of each bar , pushing aside the seat cover material. In addition, there ar e tether strap anchorages behind each rear seating position located in the panel between the rear seat back and the r ear window — under a hinged plastic cover with this symbol on it.
3. Attach the tether strap hook (A) of the child restraint to the anchor (B) and remove slack in the tether strap according to the child r estraint manufacturer’s instruc- tions. W ARNING! An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and possible injury to the child.
W ARNING! Do not install child restraint systems equipped with LA TCH attachments at all three rear seating posi- tions at one time. The LA TCH anchorages are de- signed to restrain no more than two child restraints at a time in the event of a collision.
• The lap portion should be low on the hips and as snug as possible. • Check belt fit periodically . A child’s squirming or slouching can move the belt out of position. • If the shoulder belt contacts the face or neck, move the child closer to the center of the vehicle.
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles of operation. This is a normal part of the break-in and not an indication of a pr oblem. SAFETY TIPS Exhaust Gas W ARNING! Exhaust gases can injure or kill. They contain carbon monoxide (CO) which is colorless and odorless.
Airbag Light The light should come on and remain on for 6 to 8 seconds as a bulb check when the ignition switch is first turned to ON/RUN. If the bulb is not lit during starting, have it replaced. If the light stays on or comes on while driving, have the system checked by an authorized dealer .

MIRRORS Inside Day/Night Mirror Adjust the mirror to center on the view thr ough the rear window . A two point pivot system allows for horizontal and vertical mirror adjustment. Annoying headlight glare can be r educed by moving the small control under the mirr or to the night position (toward r ear of vehicle).
Electric Remote-Control Mirrors Use the mirror select switch, located on the drivers door trim panel, to adjust the view obtained in the outside mirrors. Pr ess the rocker knob to the L or R for Left or Right mirror selection. Use the center of f position to guard against accidentally moving a mirr or position.
W ARNING! • Adjusting a seat while the vehicle is moving is dangerous. The sudden movement of the seat could cause you to lose control. The seat belt might not be properly adjusted and you could be injured. Adjust the seat only while the vehicle is parked.
Folding Rear Seat T o provide additional storage ar ea, the center of each rear seatback can be folded forward. Pull on the loops shown in the picture to fold down either or both seatbacks. W ARNING! • It is extremely dangerous to ride in a cargo area, inside or outside of a vehicle.
TO OPEN AND CLOSE THE HOOD T o open the hood, two latches must be released. First pull the hood release lever located under the driver’s side of the instrument panel. Then lift the safety catch located under the front edge of the hood, near the center and raise the hood.
Use the hood prop r od to secure the hood in the open position as shown. T o prevent possible damage, do not slam the hood to close it. Use a firm downward push at the center of the hood to ensure that both latches engage. W ARNING! If the hood is not fully latched it could fly up when the vehicle is moving and block your forward vision.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER DESCRIPTIONS 1. Fog Light Indicator This light shows when the fog lights are ON. 2. Brake System W arning Light This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking brake application. If the brake light comes on, it may indicate that the parking brake is applied, or there is a low brake fluid level.
If the ABS light remains on or comes on during driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is requir ed, however , the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally provided that the BRAKE warning light is not on.
The light does not show the quantity of oil in the engine. This can be determined using the procedur e shown in Section 7. 9. Seat Belt Reminder Light When the ignition key is first turned on, this light will come on for about six seconds. A chime will sound if you have not pulled the shoulder belt out of the retractor .
16. Malfunction Indicator Light This light is part of an onboard diagnostic system called OBD that monitors engine con- trol systems. The light will illuminate briefly when the key is in the ON/RUN position before engine start. If the bulb does not come on when turning the key from OFF to ON/RUN, have the condition checked promptly .
20. T rip Indicator This light will illuminate when the T rip Odometer is in use. 21. T emperature Gauge The temperature gauge shows engine coolant temperature. Normal operating range should be within one notch above or one notch below the 200 degree mark.
ELECTRONIC DIGIT AL CLOCK The clock and radio each use the display panel built into the radio. A digital readout shows the time in hours and minutes whenever the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position. When the ignition switch is in the OFF position, or when the radio frequency is being displayed, time keeping is accurately maintained.
Electrical Disturbances Radio waves may pick up electrical disturbances during transmission. They mainly affect the wave amplitude, and thus remain a part of the AM reception. They interfere very little with the fr equency variations that carry the FM signal.

• Driving under wide bridges or along tall buildings can cause intermittent reception. • Placing objects over or too close to the antenna can cause signal blockage. COMP ACT DISC MAINTENANCE T o keep the compact discs in good condition, take the following precautions: 1.
CLIMA TE CONTROLS Air Conditioning The Air Conditioning System allows you to balance the temperature, amount, and dir ection of air circulating throughout the vehicle. The air conditioning system of your vehicle contains R-134a, a refrigerant that does not deplete the ozone layer in the upper atmosphere.
Bi-Level Air is directed thr ough the panel and floor out- lets. NOTE: There is a dif ference in temperature between the upper and lower outlets for added comfort. The warmer air goes to the floor outlets. This feature gives impr oved comfort during sunny but cool conditions.
NOTE: If your air conditioning performance seems lower than expected, check the front of the A/C con- denser located in front of the radiator , for an accumula- tion of dirt or insects. Clean with a gentle water spray from behind the radiator and thr ough the condenser .
Operating Tips UNDERST ANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT P ANEL 81 4 .
W indow Fogging V ehicle side windows tend to fog on the inside in mild rainy or humid weather . T o clear the windows, use the A/C, P ANEL and blower controls. Direct the panel outlets toward the side windows. Do not use r ecirculate without A/C for long periods as fogging may occur .
ELECTRIC REAR WINDOW DEFROSTER A push-button at the center of the instrument panel, below the radio, turns the defroster ON or OFF . An amber light shows that the defroster is on. NOTE: The defroster turns of f automatically after 10 minutes of operation.

ST ARTING PROCEDURES Before starting your vehicle, adjust your seat, adjust both inside and outside mirrors, and fasten your seat belts. CAUTION! Long periods of engine idling, especially at high engine speeds can cause excessive exhaust tempera- tures which can damage your vehicle.
If the engine fails to start within 15 seconds, turn the key OFF wait 10 to 15 seconds, then repeat the normal starting procedur e. W ARNING! Do not attempt to push or tow your vehicle to get it started. Unburned fuel could enter the catalytic converter and once the engine has started, ignite and damage the converter and vehicle.
CAUTION! T o prevent damage to the starter , do not crank the engine for more than 15 seconds at a time. W ait 10 to 15 seconds before trying again. After Starting The idle speed will automatically decrease as the engine warms up. T urbocharger “Cool Down” NOTE: Letting the engine idle after severe operation allows the turbine housing to cool to normal operating temperature.
MANUAL TRANSAXLE NOTE: The parking brake should be engaged and the gear selector placed in REVERSE before leaving the vehicle, especially on an incline. NOTE: Clutch must be depressed for engine to start. Fully depress the clutch pedal befor e you shift gears.
Never drive with your foot resting on the clutch pedal, or try to hold the vehicle on a hill with the clutch pedal partially engaged. This will cause abnormal wear on the clutch. Never shift into REVERSE until the vehicle has come to a complete stop.
If you exceed these speeds, you may notice the engine cut in and out. This is caused by an electronic limiter in the engine computer . The engine will run normally when you reduce engine speed. Downshifting Proper downshifting may impr ove fuel economy and prolong engine life.
When parking on a hill,, turn the front wheels towar d the curb on a downhill grade and away from the curb on a uphill grade. Y ou should always apply the parking brake before leav- ing the vehicle. W ARNING! • Leaving children in a vehicle unattended is dan- gerous for a number of reasons.
BRAKE SYSTEM Y our vehicle is equipped with power assisted brakes as standard equipment. In the event power assist is lost for any reason (for example, r epeated brake applications with the engine off), the brakes will still function. The effort r equired to brake the vehicle will be much greater than that requir ed with the power system operating.
W ARNING! • Anti-lock system (ABS) cannot prevent the natu- ral laws of physics from acting on the vehicle, nor can it increase braking or steering efficiency be- yond that afforded by the condition of the vehicle brakes and tires or the traction afforded.
TIRE SAFETY INFORMA TION Tire Markings NOTE: • P(Passenger)-Metric tire sizing is based on U.S. design standards. P-Metric tir es have the letter “P” molded into the sidewall preceding the size designation. Ex- ample: P215/65R15 95H. • European Metric tir e sizing is based on European design standards.
T ire Sizing Chart EXAMPLE: Size Designation: P = Passenger car tire size based on U.S. design standards ( ....blank.... ( = Passenger car tire based on European design standards L T = Light T ruck tire based on U.S. design standards T = T emporary Spare tire 31 = Overall Diameter in Inches (in) 215 = Section W idth in Milimeters (mm) 65 = Aspect Ratio in Percent (%) —Ratio of section height to section width of tire.
EXAMPLE: Service Description: 95 = Load Index —A numerical code associated with the maximum load a tire can carry . H = Speed Symbol —A symbol indicating the range of speeds at which a tire can carry a load corresponding to its load index under certain operating conditions.
Tire Identification Number (TIN) The TIN may be found on one or both sides of the tire however the date code may only be on one side. T ires with white sidewalls will have the full TIN including date code located on the white sidewall side of the tire.
Tire Loading and T ire Pressure T ire Placard Location NOTE: Some vehicles have a “T ire and Loading Infor- mation” placard located on the driver’s side “B” pillar . T ire and Loading Information Placard This placard tells you important information about the, 1) number of people that can be carried in the vehicle 2) the total weight your vehicle can carry 3) the tire size designed for your vehicle 4) the cold tire inflation pr essures for the front, r ear and spare tir es.
Loading The vehicle maximum load on the tire must not exceed the load carrying capacity of the tire on your vehicle. Y ou will not exceed the tire’s load carrying capacity if you adhere to the loading conditions, tir e size and cold tire inflation pressur es specified on the T ire and Loading Information placard and the V ehicle Loading section of this manual.
6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer , load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle. Consult this manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle. NOTE: The following table shows examples on how to calculate total load, cargo/luggage and towing capacities of your vehicle with varying seating configurations and number and size of occupants.
ST ARTING AND OPERA TING 103 5 .
W ARNING! Overloading of your tire is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the recommended load capacity for your vehicle-never overload them. TIRES—GENERAL INFORMA TION Tire Pressure Proper tir e inflation pressure is essential to the safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle.
2. Economy— Improper inflation pr essures can cause uneven wear patterns to develop across the tir e tread. These abnormal wear patterns will reduce tr ead life resulting in a need for earlier tire r eplacement. Underinflation also increases tire rolling r esistance and results in higher fuel consumption.
CAUTION! After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure al- ways reinstall the valve stem cap–if equipped. This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the valve stem. Inflation pressur es specified on the placard are always “cold tire inflation pr essure”.
W ARNING! High speed driving with your vehicle under maxi- mum load is dangerous. The added strain on your tires could cause them to fail. Y ou could have a serious accident. Don’t drive a vehicle loaded to the maximum capacity at continuous speeds above 75 mph (120 km/h).
CAUTION! Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an automatic car wash with the compact spare installed. Damage to the vehicle may result. Tire Spinning When stuck in mud, sand, snow , or ice conditions, do not spin your vehicle’s wheels above 35 mph (55 km/h).
T read Wear Indicators T read wear indicators ar e in the original equipment tires to help you in determining when your tires should be replaced. These indicators are molded into the bottom of the tr ead grooves and will appear as bands when the tr ead depth becomes 1/16 inch (2 mm).
W ARNING! • Do not use a tire, wheel size or rating other than that specified for your vehicle. Some combina- tions of unapproved tires and wheels may change suspension dimensions and performance charac- teristics, resulting in changes to steering, han- dling, and braking of your vehicle.
Tire Chains Due to limited clearance, tire chains ar e not recom- mended. CAUTION! Damage to the vehicle may result if tire chains are used. Snow Tires Some areas of the country r equire the use of snow tires during winter . Some standard tir es are of the all season type and satisfy this requir ement as indicated by the M+S designation on the tire sidewall.
Snow tires may have a lower speed rating than factory equipped tires and may not match the maximum vehicle speed. Snow tires generally have lower speed ratings than what was originally equipped with your vehicle and should not be operated at sustained speeds over 75 mph (120 km/h).
The requir ed rotation method for directional tir es is to swap the front tir e with the rear on the same side of the vehicle. Do not cross switch tir es without dismounting the tires and r e-mounting them in the correct rotational direction. SELECTING FUEL 2.
Reformulated Gasoline Many areas of the country r equire the use of cleaner burning fuel referr ed to as Reformulated Gasoline. Re- formulated gasolines contain oxygenates, and are specifi- cally blended to reduce vehicle emissions and impr ove air quality .
vehicle. The MMT content of gasoline may not be indi- cated on the gasoline pump, therefor e you should ask your gasoline retailer whether or not his/her gasoline contains MMT . It is even more important to look for gasolines without MMT in Canada because MMT can be used at higher levels than allowed in the United States.
ADDING FUEL NOTE: The fuel tank filler tube has a restricting door about 2 inches (50 mm) down from the opening. If fuel is poured fr om a portable container , the container should have a flexible nozzle long enough to force open the restricting door .
W ARNING! • Remove the fuel tank filler tube cap (gas cap) slowly to prevent fuel spray from the filler neck which may cause injury . • The volatility of some gasolines may cause a build up of pressure in the fuel tank that may increase while you drive.

the fan control to High. This allows the heater cor e to act as a supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling system. CAUTION! Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If temperature gauge reads over 250 degrees (in the red zone), pull over and stop the vehicle.
JACKING AND TIRE CHANGING W ARNING! • Getting under a jacked-up vehicle is dangerous. The vehicle could slip off the jack and fall on you. Y ou could be crushed. Never get any part of your body under a vehicle that is on a jack. Never start or run the engine while the vehicle is on a jack.
2. Loosen, but do not remove, the wheel nuts by turning them to the left one turn while the wheel is still on the ground. CAUTION! Do not attempt to raise the vehicle by jacking on the crossmember below the radiator or on the front suspension crossmember .
Do not raise the vehicle until you are sur e the jack is securely engaged. 4. Raise the vehicle by turning the jack screw to the right. Raise the vehicle only until the tire clears the surface. Miminum tire lift pr ovides maximum vehicle stability .
7. Finish tightening the nuts. Push down on the wrench while tightening the wheel nuts. Alternate nuts until each nut has been tightened twice. Correct wheel nut tor que is 100 ft. lbs. (135 N·m.). If you are not sur e about the tightness, have them checked with a torgue wr ench by your dealer or at a service station.
1. W ear eye protection and remove any metal jewelry such as watch bands or bracelets that might make an inadvertent electrical contact. 2. When boosting from a battery in another vehicle, park that vehicle within booster cable reach but without letting the vehicles touch.
W ARNING! Battery fluid is a corrosive acid solution; do not allow battery fluid to contact eyes, skin or clothing. Don’t lean over battery when attaching clamps or allow the clamps to touch each other . If acid splashes in eyes or on skin, flush the contaminated area immediately with large quantities of water .

ONBOARD DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM — OBD II Y our vehicle is equipped with a sophisticated onboard diagnostic system called OBD II. This system monitors the performance of the emissions, and engine control systems. When these systems are operating pr operly , your vehicle will provide excellent performance and fuel economy , as well as engine emissions well within current government regulations.
Normally , the OBD system will be ready . The OBD system may not be ready if your vehicle was r ecently serviced, if you recently had a dead battery , or a battery replacement. If the OBD system should be determined not ready for the I/M test, your vehicle may fail the test.
vehicle serviced before going to the I/M station. The I/M station can fail your vehicle because the MIL symbol is on with the engine running. REPLACEMENT P ARTS Use of genuine Mopar parts for normal/scheduled main- tenance and repairs is highly r ecommended to insure the designed performance.
Engine Oil Checking Oil Level T o assure pr oper engine lubrication, the engine oil must be maintained at the correct level. Check the oil level at regular intervals, such as every fuel stop. The best time to check the engine oil level is about 5 minutes after a fully warmed engine is shut off, or befor e starting the engine after it has sat overnight.
Change Engine Oil Road conditions and your kind of driving affects the interval at which your oil should be changed. Check the following list to decide if any apply to you. • Day and night temperatures ar e below 32°F (0°C) • Stop and Go driving • Extensive engine idling • Driving in dusty conditions • Short trips of less than 10 miles (16.

the engine oil. Engine oil is an engineered pr oduct and it’s performance may be impaired by supplemental ad- ditives. Disposing of Used Engine Oil Care should be taken in disposing of used engine oil fr om your vehicle. Used oil, indiscriminately discarded, can present a pr oblem to the environment.
Catalytic Converter The catalytic converter requir es the use of unleaded fuel only . Leaded gasoline will destroy the effectiveness of the catalyst as an emission control device. Under normal operating conditions, the catalytic con- verter will not requir e maintenance.
Engine T iming Belt Replace the engine timing belt at the intervals described in the appropriate maintenance schedule. Ignition Wiring System The ignition cables should be kept clean and properly connected. T erminals should be fully seated. Cracked, damaged, or faulty cables should be replaced.
CAUTION! When servicing the battery , always reinstall the battery thermowrap. The thermowrap provides bat- tery heat protection and will extend overall battery life. Failure to reinstall the thermowrap can result in evaporative loss of the battery fluid.
CAUTION! It is essential when replacing the cables on the battery that the positive cable is attached to the positive post and the negative cable is attached to the negative post. Battery posts are marked positive (+) and negative (-) and identified on the battery case.
Power Steering Fluid Check Checking the power steering fluid level at a defined service interval is not requir ed. The fluid should only be checked if a leak is suspected, abnormal noises are apparent, and/or the system is not functioning as antici- pated.
Windshield Wiper Blades Clean the rubber edges of the wiper blades and the windshield periodically with a sponge or soft cloth and a mild non abrasive cleaner , or use the washer solvent. This will remove accumulations of salt or r oad film and help reduce str eaking and smearing.
Windshield W asher Reservoir The washer fluid reservoir is located in the engine compartment and should be checked for fluid level at regular intervals. Fill the r eservoir with windshield washer solvent (not radiator antifreeze) Exhaust System The best protection against carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle body is a properly maintained engine exhaust system.
Cooling System W ARNING! • When working near the radiator cooling fan, dis- connect the fan motor lead or turn the ignition key to the OFF position. The fan is temperature con- trolled and can start at any time the ignition key is in the ON position.
Engine Coolant Disposal Used ethylene glycol based engine coolant is a regulated substance requiring pr oper disposal. Check with your local authorities to determine the disposal rules for your community . Do not store ethylene glycol based engine coolant in open containers or allow it to remain in puddles on the ground.
Adding Coolant When adding coolant, a minimum solution of 50% eth- ylene glycol antifreeze coolant in water should be used. Use higher concentrations (not to exceed 70%) if tempera- tures below –34°F (-37°C) ar e anticipated. Use only high purity water such as distilled or deionized water when mixing the water/antifreeze solution.
The radiator normally remains completely full, so ther e is no need to remove the radiator cap unless checking for coolant freeze point or r eplacing coolant. Advise your service attendant of this. As long as the engine operating temperature is satisfactory , the coolant bottle need only be checked once a month.
E. Make sure that the radiator and coolant bottle hoses are not kinked or obstr ucted. F . Keep the front of the radiator and air conditioning condenser clean. G. Do not change the thermostat for summer or winter operation. If replacement is ever necessary , install ONL Y the correct type thermostat.
Brake System In order to assur e brake system performance, all brake system components should be inspected periodically . Suggested service intervals can be found in the Mainte- nance Section. W ARNING! Riding the brakes can lead to brake failure and possibly an accident.
W ARNING! W orn brake hoses can burst and cause brake failure. Y ou could have an accident. If you see any signs of cracking, scuffing, or worn spots, have the brake hoses replaced immediately . Brake Master Cylinder The fluid level in the master cylinder should be checked when performing under hood services, or immediately if the brake system warning lamp is on.
W ARNING! Overfilling the brake fluid reservoir can result in spilling brake fluid on hot engine parts and the brake fluid catching fire. Use only brake fluid that has been in a tightly closed container to avoid contamination from for eign matter . Do not allow petroleum based fluid to contaminate the brake fluid as seal damage will result! Manual T ransaxle Lubricant Selection Use only manufacturers r ecommended transmission fluid, refer to Recommended Fluids, Lubricants and Genuine Parts for correct fluid type.
hot or cold weather and other extreme conditions will have an adverse effect on paint, metal trim, and under - body protection. The following maintenance recommendations will enable you to obtain maximum benefit from the corr osion resistance built into your vehicle.
Special Care • If you drive on salted or dusty roads or if you drive near the ocean, hose off the under carriage at least once a month. • It is important that the drain holes in the lower edges of the doors, rocker panels and r ear deck lid be kept clear and open.
DO NOT USE: • Any abrasive cleaner • Any abrasive cleaning pad (such as steel wool) or abrasive brush • Any cleaner that contains an acid which can react with and discolor the chrome surface. CAUTION! Many wheel cleaners contain acids that may harm the wheel surface.
W ARNING! Do not use volatile solvents for cleaning purposes. Many are potentially flammable, and if used in closed areas they may cause respiratory harm. Cleaning Headlights Y our vehicle has plastic headlights that are lighter and less susceptible to stone breakage than glass headlights.
Seat Belt Maintenance Do not bleach, dye or clean the belts with chemical solvents or abrasive cleaners. This will weaken the fabric. Sun damage will also weaken the fabric. If the belts need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water . Do not remove the belts fr om the vehicle to wash them.
Interior Fuses The fuse access panel is behind the end cover at the left side of the instrument panel. T o remove the panel, pull it out, as shown. A diagram identifying the components and circuits is located on the inside of the cover . CAUTION! When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct amperage rating.
