Try isopropyl alcohol. Also in the future, don’t add fluid to the Motiv system. Add fluid to the master cylinder, add more as necessary before allowing air to get into the brake system, and use the Motiv as an air pressure pump only. This has allowed me to use it on many cars regardless of brake fluid type and never clean it. I’m aware that the design is made to add fluid to the Motiv but I’m giving you an option without ever having to clean it.

Huh thats interesting, well anything that can be done right and faster with less clean up is ok with me! So just standard isopropyl alcohol is fine? I called motiv
Products ans the gentlemen told me to put a lil simple green in the power and dry it out which i though was ofd because am sure simple
Green leaves some sort of residue behind right?

It’s probably ok. I would hope their tech support would give good info. The Iso alcohol won’t hurt either.
