Walk-Around Inspection
For any type of leak, clean up the fluid. If leaking is observed, find the source and correct the leak. If leaking is suspected, check the fluid levels more often than recommended until the leak is found or fixed, or until the suspicion of a leak is proved to be unwarranted.
To obtain maximum service life for your engine, make a thorough inspection before starting the engine. Make a walk-around inspection of the installation. Look for items such as oil or coolant leaks, loose bolts, and trash buildup. Remove any trash. Make repairs, if necessary.
The guards must be in the proper place. Repair damaged guards or replace missing guards.
Ensure that the areas around the rotating parts are clear.Air Inlet System
Unburned gas in the air inlet and exhaust system may ignite when the engine is started. Personal injury and/or property damage may result.Before starting an engine that may contain unburned gas, purge the unburned gas from the air inlet and exhaust system. Refer to the topic on purging unburned gas in the "Starting the Engine" section.
Ensure that the air inlet piping and the air filters are in place and clean.
Ensure that all clamps and connections are secure.Cooling System
