hey guys, well recently its gotten snowy, and this means road mess and a filthy car..and windshield. well i recently noticed that i pull on the lever to spray the washer fuild in my accent, and i just hear the vrrrrrr! of the little motor working, but no juice! at first i thought this was cus it was cold, but then i decided to check it out on a warm day..and realized if i hold it down for a LONG time..it'll like finally squirt and dribble..maybe up to where the wipers are when motionless. the rear sprayer, odly enough, works strong and fine, almost instanly, even tho the travel is much longer. i tore out the wheel well plastice to see if there was a leak, cus i watched with the hood open, and the liquid goes down visibly in the tank as i hold the lever, but no juice!. the line didn't SEEM to have any leaks, and i followed it from the tank to the top of the car, then along the hood... so the liquid drains, but doesn't seem to go anywhere! ?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>? i also squeezed the tubeing, and it feels like there is just less pressure in that hose to the front than the one to the back. i don't think the motor or pump is busted, cus you hear it buzz and it sounds normal (i think there is a pump for front and back and they sound the same. just no juice! anyways..as i typed this i realized i guess i COULD re-route the hose for the front to the pump thats working the rear... and then id have to push the rear thing for the front..but that might let me see if its the hoseing, or the pump cus if it worked..then id kno all my hoses are ok... guess i COULD check that out now that i think of it, but its a last resort as it'll be some work (and wasted fluid when i bleed the tank to switch) so, any theories or experiences with such things? no my car's not on warranty, so don't just say that <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

i forgot to say that..i poked a needle down in all the holes... most times it won't even spray. if it does after holding the lever for a good 15-20 secs or more, then it only just like squirts a few inches, but it squirts the same amount...its just not a jet, but a weak dribble!

That happened to my car when it was six months old. I took it to the dealer, and they removed the tank to have a look at it. The mechanic proudly came to the waiting room with a bit of plastic from a washer fluid bottle cap. He said "this must have fallen in when YOU filled up the fluid last". I promptly walked with him to the garage area, opened the trunk, and pulled out my trusty funnel with a fine screen in the bottom of it. I showed it to him, and asked "how do you figure it got through this?". He reinstalled the tank, and sent me on my way no charge. Before I left, I think the dealership sent one of the lot boys out to buy a bunch of funnels with the nifty filter screens for their P.D.I.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

There is only one washer fluid motor that supplies both the front and back with fluid.

I have 2 washer motors. One for front and one for back on my 99 Tibby.

It could be your pump, a kink in the line, or a block in the hose, or clogged up nozzzles.

Try yanking the line off the nozzle closes to the pump, and turning the sprayer on. If nothing comes out, keep re-tracing the hosing till you get back to the pump. Yank the hose off the pump and repeat. If nothing comes out the pump, you found your problem.

As a side note, my 99 tibby came with 2 one way valves in the hose line. One before the 1st nozzle, and one between the 1st and second. I removed them both and just used vaccum hose connectors from my local auto parts store. I now get about 100% MORE fluid than I did before. Those 1 way valves are a fairly serious restriction.

Yes, they are mounted within 2" of eachother. They are side by side on the same tank.
