Question about Ford Taurus
I just bought a 2004 ford taurus and when I tried to clean the windshield, the wiper fluid would not spray out, i checked the fluid level and it was full, so I tried again and nothing, you can hear it making the noise as if it is trying to spray but nothing is coming out, what can i do??

The washer pump should be in the resivoir bottle...remove the plug on the bottom of the resivior and check it for power when the washer button ie pushed... if you have power, then you should replave the washer motor...

There are a number of different issues that could cause this.
-The circuit for the wiper should be the same as the washer; same fuse. -I'd suggest trying to run the washer while the hood is open and the engine off. If it runs, you should hear a dull whine.(a 2nd person might be of use to help look and listen)...(find the pump by following the hoses from the wipers to a unit mounted close to the dashboard in the engine compartment)
-If it runs, check to see if any fluid is coming from a hose that might have become disconnected.
-If the pump runs, and if you see no fluid coming from anywhere, and if you can reach the hose connected to the washer pump, pull that hose off the pump. Try running the pump again to see if anything comes out in a good stream.
-If the pump doesn't run at all, check to make sure the connector hasn't come loose.
-If the pump still doesn't run, check to see if you have 12 volts at the connector at the pump. A simple check can be done with an auto bulb connected to the plug at the motor while the pump switch is pushed.
-If you have power at that point, you likely need to replace the pump and motor.(depending upon the age of vehicle & your mechanical abilities...a call to a local wrecking yard is suggested ..atleast to compare the cost vs. new)
hope that helps

first check the tubes to make sure they are not off and if they are connected then take a straight pin and poke it into the little holes where it sprays out

go to a place with compressed air and blow VERY EASY on both the hose off the reservoir and then back through the washers on the windshield outputs, but NOT too hard of air pressure so you don't split hoses or blow them off
