That's not where it goes.

Make sure you buy the 710 weight fluid.
The reservoir is easy to locate. Just look for this cap

You can get blinker fluid at O'Reilly's along with Rotor Wash for doing brake jobs.

The synthetic fluid is highly reccomended. This is some of the best available on the market... Blinker Fluid - $18.95 : KaleCoAuto.com, Your home for the rare, unusual, and hard to find auto parts.

Ok guys, fun is fun, but lets keep our eyes on the prize. This is a jeep forum, not a place for a bunch of teenagers to ramble on and on about blinker fluid. That being said, today I plastidiped a can of plastidip. WOW, the difference was amazing, it is so much better plastidipping all the parts on my rig with the plastidiped can. This is a must for everyone out there!

Ok, do I go with synthetic blinker fluid or use petrol based. I heard the synthetic fluid retains blinker heat and will overheat the contusion pipes.

I caution anyone not to drive with low blinker fluid. Not only may it damage both the left and right turn light circuits, prolonged driving can damage other electrical components. A common failure is radios that no longer function correctly and only play rap music.

Well I know where to buy it and it's usually next to the elbow grease, and headlight fluid. RvB brand is best

Hey, be extra careful to keep your Alternator lube full too. Bad things happen when you ask the new guy to go to the store...

They sell a kit to eliminate blinker fluid but the problem is you have to go under the hood and rub down the rod to keep the friction up so that way you don't lose your blinker heat extratification!!!

WAIT!! What does it mean when my blinker is making that "tick, tick, tick, tick" noise when I engage it??? Does that mean it is running low, is it out, did I put the wrong type in the fill tank?????

Mine used to make that noise too, so I pulled the cylinder from the battery panel and finished it off with a couple squirts of blinker fluid and no more tick!
