3WARNING  
Carbon monoxide gas is toxic.  
Breathing it can cause unconsciousness and  
even kill you.  
Have the exhaust system inspected for leaks whenever  
The exhaust system is making an unusual noise.  
The exhaust system may have been damaged.  
The vehicle is raised for an oil change.  
Avoid any enclosed areas or activities that  
expose you to carbon monoxide.  
When you operate a vehicle with the tailgate open, airflow can pull exhaust gas into  
the interior and create a hazardous condition. If you must drive with the tailgate  
open, open all the windows and set the heating and cooling system*/climate control  
system* as shown below.  
An enclosed area such as a garage can quickly fill up  
with carbon monoxide gas.  
Do not run the engine with the garage door closed.  
Even when the garage door is open, drive out of the  
garage immediately after starting the engine.  
1. Select the fresh air mode.  
2. Select the  
mode.  
3. Set the fan speed to high.  
4. Set the temperature control to a comfortable setting.  
Adjust the heating and cooling system*/climate control system* in the same manner  
if you sit in your parked vehicle with the engine running.
