Windsheild Wiper Fluid will not squirt on windshield
My 1994 Jeep Cherokee Sport windshield wiper fluid will not squirt out. It was working fine until I filled the thing that holds it. The wipers still work and it is squirting on the back window but not the front. Thanks.

While you were filling the tank you may have disconnected the pump wires. If you can hear the pump activating when you use the switch then the pump may have gotten clogged , check for sediment in the tank.
For the person with the mustang - if its only coming out of one side then its a nozzle clogged or a pinched hose.

go to a service station with an air compressor and with the air turned down to about 20 lbs blow into the washer top small hole to force fluid thru the hoses,not a lot of pressure so you blow hoses off or rupture something
your rear wiper motor might be faulty,in the front i would check your fluid level-if it is full and you hear the pump running-check your washer lines to see if they are pinched-usually around where the hood closes
check the outside first pull the fluid line where the fluid should be coming out have someone stand there if it comes out there the nozzle is plugged work a pin or needle inside of it to loosen it up if thats the case
I just fixed the wiper jets on my car this evening - you may have a similar problem of having hardened gunk (deposits) blocking the sprayer. Removing them is relatively easy: Open your hood and note that there is most likely a vibration-dampening cloth/fabric secured to the inside of the hood. You will need to remove the round discs that are holding this in place (most likely Christmas tree plugs - there are around 8 or so). Once removed, you will have access to the back of the sprayers. Some are held in with a nut, others are clipped in to place. You can remove the sprayers and try cleaning them or you can replace them with new ones (relatively cheap and guaranteed clog-free).
