First thing I would check is if there are any obstructions in the spray nozzles or the lines to them.
Check for power on fluid motor you should hear it when you turn it on check the plug sometimes there’s corrosion on the connectors then swap it out you can probably pick it up at the bone yard for 10$ hopefully this gives you some help

Another thing to try is to pull out a section of windshield wiper fluid hose under the hood and see if it squirts out. If it does then you know there is an obstruction downstream, most likely in the hood-mounted nozzles.

All this talk about Obstruction! Remninds me of.............nevermind.

I used to have to put a straight pin down the nozzle to get them unplugged, in a past life.

Similar issue 2005 ... reservoir was dry
  • filled reservoir
  • rear has fluid coming out of it.
  • took nozzles off and blew air from hose out.... lots of air
  • took hoses and individually plugged one, then other and blew air. I can hear the washer fluid bubble
  • no leaks
  • washer motor sounds as if working. Maybe a spritz here and there, no stream.
Suggestions?

Maybe take the nozzles off and soak them in some white vinegar. Perhaps there is some mineral buildup in them if tap water instead of windshield washer fluid was in the reservoir.

White vinegar is good. I find CLR is remarkably effective, as well.


I've just noticed their new labels say they're "woman owned." Like a lot of us, I suspect. :)
