Rev counter

The rev. counter displays the engine speed in revolutions per minute. The start of the red zone on the dial, fig. 32 indicates the maximum engine speed which may be used briefly when the engine is warm and after it has been run in properly. However, it is advisable to change up a gear or move the selector lever to D (or lift your foot off the accelerator) before the needle reaches the red zone.


Caution

The rev counter needle must never enter the red zone on the scale. Risk of engine damage.


For the sake of the environment

Changing up a gear early will help you to save fuel and minimise engine noise.

Engine coolant temperature display


This gauge shows the engine coolant temperature.


Fig. 33 Engine coolant temperature

Needle in cold zone


Avoid high engine speeds and heavy engine loads ⇒ fig. 33

Needle in normal zone


In normal driving conditions, the needle should be in the middle section of the scale. The temperature may also rise when the engine is working hard, especially at high outside temperatures. This is no cause for concern, as long as the warning lamp does not light up on the instrument
panel.

Needle in warning zone


The warning lamp*, fig. 40 will
light up and a buzzer will be heard if the needle is in the warning zone. Stop the car and switch off the engine. Check the coolant level ⇒ .


Even if the coolant level is correct do not continue driving. You should obtain technical assistance.

WARNING

When working in the engine compartment, always bear in mind the safety warnings.


Caution

Accessories in front of the air inlet reduce the cooling effect of the coolant. At high outside temperatures and high engine loads, there is a risk of the engine overheating.
