Toyota Corolla (E210): Exhaust gas precautions

Harmful substance to the human body is included in exhaust gases if inhaled.

WARNING

Exhaust gases include harmful carbon monoxide (CO), which is colorless and odorless. Observe the following precautions.

Failure to do so may cause exhaust gases enter the vehicle and may lead to an accident caused by light-headedness, or may lead to death or a serious health hazard.

■Important points while driving

  • Keep the trunk lid closed.
  • If you smell exhaust gases in the vehicle even when the trunk lid is closed, open the windows and have the vehicle inspected at your Toyota dealer as soon as possible.

■When parking

  • If the vehicle is in a poorly ventilated area or a closed area, such as a garage, stop the engine.
  • Do not leave the vehicle with the engine on for a long time.

    If such a situation cannot be avoided, park the vehicle in an open space and ensure that exhaust fumes do not enter the vehicle interior.

  • Do not leave the engine running in an area with snow build-up, or where it is snowing. If snow-banks build up around the vehicle while the engine is running, exhaust gases may

■Exhaust pipe

The exhaust system needs to be checked periodically. If there is a hole or crack caused by corrosion, damage to a joint or abnormal exhaust noise, be sure to have the vehicle inspected and repaired by your Toyota dealer.
