Be careful when removing radiator cap. If engine is hot, escaping steam could
burn you. Use a rag to cover radiator cap. Unscrew cap just enough to allow any
built-up pressure to escape. When all pressure has been relieved, unscrew cap
and take off.
Unscrew and take radiator cap off (1). Check that coolant level is within 1 inch (25.4 mm) below
top of radiator (2). Check for dirt, rust, or lubricating oil in coolant.
a. If coolant level is low, refill (page 2-628).
b. If coolant level is contaminated with rust or dirt, flush and refill (page 2-628).
c. If coolant is contaminated with lubricating oil, notify Direct Support Maintenance.
d. If coolant is clean and at proper level, put radiator cap (1) onto radiator (2).
Start engine (TM 5-3805-254-10).
Check oil level in main transmission, on dipstick (3).
a. If main transmission oil level is low, fill (page 2-906).
b. If main transmission oil level is not low, go to step 3.
