release the pressure gradually before completely 
removing the cap.

Hydraulic oil or diesel fuel escaping under pressure can 
penetrate the skin and cause serious injury. Before 
disconnecting any lines, be sure to relieve all pressure. 
Before applying pressure, be sure all connections are 
tight and all components are in good condition. 



Fluid escaping under pressure from a very small hole 
can be almost invisible. Wear safety goggles for eye 
protection and use a piece of cardboard to check for 
suspected leaks. Do not use your hands. If injured by 
escaping fluid, see a doctor at once. Serious infections 
and other problems can develop if proper medical 
treatment is not administered immediately. 



Disconnect the battery ground cable before working on 
the electrical system or working in any area where you 
might come into contact with electrical components. 
Disconnect the ground cable first and reconnect it last. 



The sulfuric acid in a battery is poisonous. It can destroy 
clothing and burn the skin. Wear eye protection and 
rubber gloves when filling the battery. If you spill acid on 
yourself, flush your skin with water and apply baking 
soda or lime to neutralize the acid. Then seek medical 
attention right away. If acid is swallowed, get medical 
attention immediately!
