What to do in an emergency
If your  temperature gauge  indicates     4. Check  to  see if  the  water  pump
overheating,  you experience  a  loss
of  power,  or  hear   loud  pinging  or
knocking, the engine  is probably too
hot. If this happens, you should:
drive  belt  is  missing.  If  it  is  not
missing,  check  to  see  that   it  is
tight. If the drive  belt seems to  be
satisfactory,   check    for   coolant
leaking from the radiator, hoses or
under the car. (If the  air condition-
ing had  been  in use,  it is  normal
for cold water to be draining from it
when you stop.)
Do not remove  the radiator cap
when  the   engine  is  hot.  This
may   result   in  coolant   being
blown  out  of  the opening  and
cause serious burns.
Pull off the road and  stop as soon
as it is safe to do so.
Place the  shift lever  in P  and set
the parking brake. If  the air condi-
tioning is on, turn it off.
6. If you cannot find the cause of the
overheating, wait  until  the engine
temperature  has returned  to  nor-
mal.Then, if coolant has been lost,
carefully add coolant  to the reser-
voir  to bring  the fluid  level  in the
reservoir up to the halfway mark.
7. Proceed   with   caution,   keeping
alert for  further signs of  overheat-
ing. If overheating happens again,
call an authorized HYUNDAI deal-
er for assistance.
If  engine  coolant  is  running   out
under the  car or steam  is coming
out   from   the    hood,   stop   the
engine. Do not open the hood until
the  coolant  has stopped  running
or  the  steaming  has  stopped.  If
there  is no  visible loss  of  engine
coolant  and no  steam,  leave  the
engine  running  and  check to  be
sure  the   engine   cooling  fan   is
operating. If the fan is not running,
turn the engine off.
While   the  engine   is  running,
keep  hair,  hands  and  clothing
away  from  moving  parts  such
as the fan and drive belts to pre-
vent injury.
If the water pump drive belt is bro-
ken  or  engine coolant  is  leaking
out,  stop the  engine  immediately
and  call   the  nearest  authorized
HYUNDAI dealer for assistance.
Serious   loss  of   coolant  indi-
cates there is a leak in the  cool-
ing  system and  this  should be
checked as soon as possible by
an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
