Subaru Forester: Maintenance precautions / Before checking or servicing in the engine compartment

WARNING

  • Always stop the engine and apply the parking brake firmly to prevent the vehicle from moving.
  • Always let the engine cool down. Engine parts become very hot when the engine is running and remain hot for some time after the engine has stopped.
  • Do not spill engine oil, engine coolant, brake fluid or any other fluid on hot engine components. This may cause a fire.
  • When the ignition switch is in the “ON” position, the cooling fan may operate suddenly even when the engine is stopped. If your body or clothes come into contact with a rotating fan, that could result in serious injury. To avoid risk of injury, perform the following precautions.
    • Models with push-button start system:

      Always turn the push-button ignition switch to the “OFF” position and confirm that the operation indicator on the switch is turned off. Then take the access key fob out from the vehicle.

    • Models without push-button start system:

      Always remove the key from the ignition switch.

  • Before performing any servicing on a vehicle equipped with a remote engine start system (a dealer option), temporarily place the remote engine start system in service mode to prevent it from unexpectedly starting the engine.
