No water out from sprinkler even tho tank full

Posted by on

  • cucumberman Dec 04, 2008

    Same issue, same car. I pull back on the sprayer handle and no water is sprayed either on the windshield or on my headlights. However, the wiper do work (move back and forth) fine. It seemed that last summer, they all of a sudden quit. They used (the pump I guess) to make a noise when the water came out - but not now. I guessed electrical to be the problem, so checked all related fuses (#3 and #36) - they were fine. Not sure what to do next. Pls help. It's winter and I need the sprayers to work. Much thx!

Clean the inline filter right before the hose enters the sprayers.

My 2001 cavalier won't start tho the battery is new; it acts like it's not getting fuel even tho it has half a tank

Disconnect the fuel line off the carb then turn the starter over. There should be gas shoot out. If not your fuel pump may be shot. have you ever changed the fuel filter? If its plugged it will not work.

The coolant light comes on even tho the coolant is full could it be the fan

the coolant light needs water to keep the light off. Check the coolant level in the radiator and not the reservoir. If the wire to the sender unit is broken or not making good contact then the low light will also come on.

My car keeps cutting out as if its run out of fuel even tho its got a full tank of fuel

have the fault codes read and look for a problem EVAP system not venting the tank ( opening the gas cap to put in fuel is allowing the tank to vent until the next time)
never on fuel lights as they are only an indication and can be off

My 04 GTO was not used all winter - now it wont register any fuel even tho tank is full. I did have to jump start it.everything else seems fine.

Yes the float has probably sank in the tank (fuel senser) to test just pull wire off sender and put to earth gauge should shoot up to full ! then you know for shure just replace the senser unit they are only cheap!

1987 fuel level guage issue

thats funny, my 87 F250 does the same thing. At 80 bucks a sender unit I have learned to live with it even tho this is what I do for a living.

The reason fuel gauges fail is because of sulfur in fuels.

Do a search on sulfur and fuel sender units failures and you will find your complaint is the same as the masses.

I have problems putting gas in my car. the pump shuts off liek its full even tho its nowhere close to being full

Your tanks has a built in wire filter just below the neck. This has two functions 1) it removes any dirt in the fuel 2) it stops anyone from putting a hose into your tank to syphon fuel out.When you fill the tank pull the nozzle out partially (not fully out of the tank neck) but enough to let the fast delivery go through the wire filter gauze.
Hope this helps.

I have a '98 Rav 4 and problem with the water system. I fill the water reserve container near the radiator up to full and after some trip I found the container is drained. I even found one time after I...

The coolant overflow( puke tank) should only be full when the truck is hot.
If you are filling the overflow tank when the engine is cooled off, it will overfill the "puke" tank when it warms-up and possibly even empty it by syphon action.
