Subaru Tribeca / Subaru Tribeca 2006-2019 Owners Manual / Maintenance and service / Maintenance precautions / Before checking or servicing in the engine compartment

WARNING

Always stop the engine and set 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 is stopped.

Do not spill engine oil, engine coolant, brake fluid or any other fluid on hot engine components.

This may cause a fire.

Always remove the key from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is in the “ON” position, the cooling fan may operate suddenly even when the engine is stopped.
