The temperature gauge displays the current engine temperature.

If the pointer moves into the red segment, the engine is overheating. In this event, the engine temperature warning lamp illuminates.

If the engine overheats, stop the vehicle as soon as safety permits. Allow the engine to idle until the temperature reduces. If the temperature does not reduce after several minutes, switch the engine off and allow it to cool.

If the problem persists, seek qualified assistance immediately.


Serious engine damage occurs if the vehicle is driven while the engine is overheating.


Engine performance may be reduced, and some vehicle systems may stop working, if the engine overheats.
