Blinkers are out

The blinkers are out on my Mazda 3 - when I press the lever up or down, they do nothing! I assume this is a spark plug issue, but I have no experience with spark plug issues. Is there anything more to fixing this than buying a new spark plug, finding the right spark plug hole, and sticking the new one in there?

It's a dumb question, but I'm a well meaning fool! And I submit myself to the collective wisdom of people who know better than I.

Check your Boar Torque level glass indicator.

Re: Blinkers are out

Holy cow, I had no idea there was blinker fluid. Can you get it at Kragen? Where do you pour it in?

Re: Blinkers are out

Goes in the headlight itself--just pop the blinker bulbs out of the back of your headlight housing, and use a tube + funnel to get it in there. Can be a little tricky, but works like a charm!

Re: Blinkers are out

There isn't any headlight fluid at Kragen, and the sales person was really rude to me when I asked about it. I called back five times to try to get a different sales person, but it was him every single one.

Can I get headlight fluid on the internet? KaleCo is sold out

Check your boar torque level. Should be OVAR 9000
