CAUTION: Fuel supply lines remain pressurized for long periods of time after the engine is shut down. This pressure must be relieved before the fuel system is serviced. The fuel system on these vehicles is depressurized by disconnecting the inertia switch and cranking the vehicle for a minimum of 15 seconds.
