    Just tested if any of the hoses are clogged. NO. put my finger over the little sucker thing that gets the water out of the tank, and yes i could feel it sucking trying to get water, but it doesn't come out of the hoses that shoot it to the windshield.

    Then it is leaking somewhere....... Cracked hose....... Put water in it, and run it for a while and see if/where it leaks......

    The nozzles themselves could be clogged as well. Make sure they are good too!

    they're not. I unplugged the hose to the actual nozzles, and you would see water coming out of it, but it's not. I don't think there is a leak, because the fluid level stays consistant.

    Im saying there could be a crack in a hose and it could be leaking..... wether or not it goes to the ground....... Or an insect or something like that could have made a home.......

    Re: Windshield Wiper FLUID

    My suggestion would be to remove the existing hoses and go to like a Home Depot and get the same size hozing and 'rewire' the washer fluid lines. That may be easier than all this guesswork IMHO

    Re: Windshield Wiper FLUID

    I think there is some miscommunication going on, so let me do a quick recap.....

    When you unplug the hose from the motor, it sprays (so the motor is good)...... When you plug the hose back into the pump, it gues but nothing comes from the nozzles...... What happens when you unplug the hose feeding the nozzles??? Any spay-age???

    Ok, i put my finger over the suction hose that goes into the tank of fluid, and feel a little pressure. I put it back in. I unplug the hoses from the actual pump that go to the nozzles that squirt out the water onto the windshield... Nothing.

    Well if you remove the hoses from the pump and get nothing then you need a new washer pump!
