Chevrolet Spark Owners Manual: Engine Overheating

The vehicle has an indicator to warn of the engine overheating. See Engine Coolant Temperature Warning Light on page 5-18.

If the decision is made not to lift the hood when this warning appears, get service help right away. See Roadside Assistance Program on page 13-5.

If the decision is made to lift the hood, make sure the vehicle is parked on a level surface.
