Tips for Handling the Radiator  
The Radiator is a delicate component and has to be handled very carefully.
The Radiator should be handled in such a way that it does not damage the product. The best method of lifting is by holding on to Side Supports.
It should be noted that all care must be taken to avoid forcefully touching the Core, as it may dent/damage the fins.
Holding or lifting the Radiator by the Filler Neck must be avoided at all costs.
Pressure Cap (Monthly Inspection)
Open the Cap, when the engine is cold and inspect the Pressure Release Valve by pushing against the pressure spring, if found sticky or tight, clean the Pressure Cap with soap and water and try again. The Pressure Cap will have to be replaced, if still found sticky or tough.

The Vacuum Release Valve shall also be inspected by pulling against the vacuum valve spring. Similar procedure to be carried out as in Pressure Release Valve.
Radiator Maintenance (Once a year)
The Core of the Radiator shall be inspected visually for dust particles or any other contamination that can physically affect the performance of the Radiator. In such cases clean the core by applying a-blast of compressed air taking care not to dent or damage the fins.

In case the Core is coated with dried up mud particles, the Radiator has to be taken out and soaked in fresh water for three to four hours till the mud dissolves. The radiator can then be cleaned both inside and outside with clean water. The radiator can then be dried by the use of compressed air to remove any remaining sediment.
Take care to check the condition of the coolant and top up, if necessary
It is advisable to filter the coolant through a clean cloth before use.

In case the Coolant is contaminated with mud particles, scales or rust form the engine, it is advisable to change the entire coolant.
