Pretty sure on the bottle it says DONT let the motor cut out too. I wouldn't want to flood the engine.

My guess is you've never winterized a boat with the stuff then.

Thanks to AFBond03 I bought some new lights, and killed my brain splitting whistle under my hood. Intake gasket leak.








Also found out a local lady is selling her 99 white XJ. Black interior 3.5" lift, no rust for what I blew on my truck.

Oh well

She may trade though, hers is too high for her

Current: 99XJ 6.5 lift-Bought 2015
Sold: Patriot Blue 00 XJ.

I still want a pic... I'm not familiar with the layout of the 97+ engine bay.
