ICM Yellow liquid Leak

hi,

Can anybody enlighten me what that yellow liquid in the Ignition Control Module is/called? Have mine leak out and that sticky yellow stuff is a mess and hard to clan.

I want to get it re-filled before I epoxy and seal the ICM back up.

I do want to get it at the shop but at least armed with the correct name else the vendor will start giving me yellow plegm instead lol

Blinker fluid should work for the ICM

This is the corollary to letting the smoke out of the wiring.

Assuming for just a moment this is not a joke post, and your question is real.....
The electronics of the Ignition control Module are "potted"
Potting in electronics is a process of filling a electronic assembly with a solid or gelatinous compound for resistance to shock, vibration, and for elimination of moisture and corrosion. Potting material is commonly Thermosetting plastics or silicone rubber gels.

If the case is damaged, cracked, rubbed though and potting material is leaking out, you can seal the case with epoxy or RTV for now , but Id be looking for a replacement unit
