B - Coolant temperature
Bar in left area – engine cold

  • Avoid high engine speeds and heavy engine loading.

Bar in center area – normal operating temperature
Pointer may move up to the red area when the engine is heavily loaded and outside temperature is high.

Bar in red area – operating temperature too high


Risk of engine damage.

If the coolant temperature is too high, the coolant temperature gauge moves to the maximum mark. A warning message is displayed on the multifunction display to indicate the high engine temperature and the warning light lights up or flashes.

  • If the red zone is reached, find a safe place to stop and switch off the engine. Do not continue driving.
  • Observe the following measures if the coolant temperature is too high:
  1. Please see chapter "Warning and Information Messages" on page 284.

If the coolant level is low, warning signals may appear if the vehicle tilts at an extreme angle (e.g. steep slopes) or generates high lateral acceleration while negotiating long bends (e.g. circular course driving). If the warnings do not disappear once the vehicle has assumed “normal” operating state, check the coolant level.

  1. Please see chapter "Checking the coolant level and adding coolant" on page 94.

C - Engine oil temperature
If the engine oil temperature is too high, a warning message is displayed on the multifunction display.

  • Reduce engine speed and load immediately.

The engine oil pressure varies depending on the engine speed, oil temperature and engine load.


Risk of engine damage.

If the oil pressure is too low, a warning message appears on the multifunction display.

  • If the oil pressure is too low, find a safe place to stop and switch off the engine. Do not continue driving.
  • Note the measures to take when oil pressure is too low:
  1. Please see chapter "Warning and Information Messages" on page 284.
