The wiper fluid reservoir will not hold any water. The water which is poured in appears to run straight out at the bottom of the wheel arch. What do I need to do to remove any parts to allow me to look for the problem

Hello. Usually when you raise your hood look to the left or over to the passenger side against the side wall there will be a blue cap covering the washer fluid tank remove it fill the the tank and snap the lid back into place.
Unfortunately the washer reservoirs are not equipped with drains, you have to suck the fluid out or run the washer until it is drained. IF what you put in is not washer fluid or water then DONT run it through the pump. Since you didn\'t say what you put in, I\'m left to assume it really shouldn\'t be in there. Get yourself an antifreeze tester and a suitable length of hose to reach the bottom of the reservoir (or sacrifice a turkey baster) and suck out the fluid. Now for the hard part - you\'ll have to wash out the remains. If the bad stuff is water soluble (antifreeze is), pour some warm soapy water in and run it through the pump. If the stuff is not water soluble (like power steering fluid) then you\'ll be best to replace the plastic bottle. If the stuff hasn\'t gone through the pump, it can be transferred to the replacement bottle.
It should be on the back of the firewall. It is usually on the right side, but you should see the reservoir pretty easy. It has a cup pouring water out image on the cap. I am not familiar with this type of car, but look for the image. It should be on the cap. If you have a question, just right back. I am here to help you in anyway I can. Thanks for using FixYa.
It's a loose / broken hose running from the washer fluid reservoir to the windshield wiper. Trace the hose and look for the leak. May need to pull up the back seat since that seems to be where the leak is.
If your car is an automatic there would be lines from the transmission to the rad to cool the transmision fluid. Over time the lines inside the rad have been known to corrode and start leaking. This would put oil in your coolant. You would be looking for small steel lines going in and out that would trace back to the transmission. Hope this helps.
