Question My blinker is flashing quickly?

I was making a right turn and my indicator was blinking VERY quickly. I checked the bulb, it was good. So I'm wondering where the blinker fluid fill is. Anyone done this? Here's what I picked up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Front or rear? This is VERY important! Don't mix 'em or your hazard flashers won't work. And you got the wrong one, our rigs take the RBF800 dude, that stuff might work but they'll be dim.

Oh and the filler cap for that is under the hood near the 710 cap.

thats not true. the resorvoir is located on the back of each headlight as they run seperate for each blinker.

Oh my bad, you're right. On a Chevy its a single cap but it splits in the filler neck, such a pain. I think that's why those running lights never work.

Not true either. If you are going to try and correct someone atleast do it with REAL information. The resorvoirs are vaccum operated by a high tensile johnson rod. Allowing the equal distribution of pressure among the lines and blinkers.

To the OP. Your problem might be caused by the change in the weather. Cold temperatures cause the johnson rod to shink and contract. Making it harder to pump the fluid evenly throughout the lines.

I hope this helps. If not, here is a free bump.
