The videos say spray it through the vacuum line, but shows it done through the throttle body :)
I might add a pic of my car once I style the exterior a bit :).

Which one do you think would be best to use? I just had a very quick look, maybe the one for the brakes? Since the car will be stationary, in park, with the handbrake on I was thinking it would be the most practical. However, this would also throw a check engine light I would presume? Again, would this go off after a while of proper operation? Im probably overthinking it!


That'd be fine, but you'd dump just as much fluid through the smaller lines too.

The only point to it Aspire is to avoid a CEL - I believe that will clear itself but I can't be sure in a CJ as I've not seen a code appear and clear :).

I have seen it in a CH though.

Yes they clear themselves. Or I can do it with several of my tools which read and clear codes

That's good. That was the main thing I was concerned about. The other issue with having the check engine light on is that if something else happens to go wrong you have no way of knowing until symptoms present, because you' d just assume the light is on from the clean.

I guess if there is a fault showing and it stays there for an extended period I'll ask you to check it out lol :)

Very, very occasionly I use to get a code. I've probably had it come up 4 times in 5 years.

Of course since I bought a code tool I haven't had one.
