Replace your rear blinker and you should be good. The fast blinking is there to indicate a bulb has burned out.

I've been wondering if mine is going out. I have a strange rattle when coming to a stop. I figured I'd check my muffler bearings first before making such a purchase. I also still need to change the air in my tires to summer air.

I don't see where the problem is....

But to be on the safe side, drill another hole on the opposite side in order to balance the blinker fluid distribution.

It can be a bad blinker fluid pan seal, or the blinker fluid being used is not the correct one.

I'd love to ask what's everyone blinker fluid brand preference, but I really don't want to start an endless fight over it, ya know.

Personally I use Amsoil fully synthetic blinker fluid, because it's got higher zinc content and also because everything else is crap... again just personal preference. I totally respect the fact that other might use some other crappy brands.
