Exhaust gas (carbon monoxide)

WARNING:

- Do not breathe exhaust gases; they contain colorless and odorless carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is dangerous.

It can cause unconsciousness or death.

- If you suspect that exhaust fumes are entering the vehicle, drive with all windows fully open, and have the vehicle inspected immediately.

- Do not run the engine in closed spaces such as a garage.

- Do not park the vehicle with the engine running for any extended length of time.

- Keep the trunk lid closed while driving, otherwise exhaust gases could be drawn into the passenger compartment.

If you must drive with the trunk lid open, follow these precautions:

1. Open all the windows.

2. Set the airbutton recirculation button to off and the fan control dial to high to circulate the air.

- If electrical wiring or other cable connections must pass to a trailer through the seal on the trunk lid or the body, follow the manufacturers recommendation to prevent carbon monoxide entry into the vehicle.

- The exhaust system and body should be inspected by a qualified mechanic whenever:

a. The vehicle is raised for service.

b. You suspect that exhaust fumes are entering into the passenger compartment.

c. You notice a change in the sound of the exhaust system.

d. You have had an accident involving damage to the exhaust system, underbody, or rear of the vehicle.
