Safely Working in the Engine Bay

There are some basic safety precautions that you should take when working in the engine bay of your vehicle.

Safety Equipment Checklist:

1. Safety glasses - always wear safety glasses or goggles to protect your eyes from debris or chemicals.
2. Chemical resistant gloves - to protect your hands against chemicals.

General Precautions:

1. The engine contains many moving parts. Work with the engine off unless its necessary.
2. Connect the vehicle exhaust to an exhaust evacuation system or park outside – carbon monoxide is a deadly gas.
3. Park in gear and apply hand brake.
