    Hey im pulling out my engine compartment fusebox to see if all connections are ok and there are brown plugs that go into the box that have some type of tan grease all through them. wondering if its sposed to be like that, someone told me that the grease shouldnt be touching all the other connections because it acts like a wire. its a del sol 93 si.

    It's dielectric grease....it does not conduct electricity until about 40,000 volts.
