    I warmed the truck in the garage and it fixed the problem, must have been frozen?? I drove a few miles and it froze again. I'll try the antifreeze fluid.

SOURCE: 2001 Buick Regal LS windshield washer fluid does not spray

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

SOURCE: Loud whistle noise from my 97 dodge ram 1500

sounds like a vacuum leak. spray w-d 40 around vacuum hoses to find out. intake manifold might be leaking or sucking air as well use w-d- 40 there as well. if it has a turbo charger it may be going out. water pump, alternator and belts can make winning noises as well.

Windshield washer fluid not spraying


Three possibilities immediately come to mind: is there any fluid in the washer reservoir? can you hear the spray motor running? are the spray nozzles connected (small rubber hoses) and clear of any blockages? More information, please.

Washer fluid not spraying


Does the motor make a noise like its trying to pump when you press the water button? Best way to check is when the car is off and you turn the key to accessories, then try the water. If you hear a humming noise, your fuse and motor are working and you have a blocked spray unit. Just use a pin to unblock it.
If you dont hear a humming noise, locate the fuse and see if it is faulty. If the fuse is fine, your motor is bad so replace it. Hope this helps

Wiper fluid will not spray out, just a trickle, like there's a clog. This happens on both nozzles, not just one. Anything I can do to fix this without taking to dealer?


YOU CAN GO UNDER THE HOOD, AND LOCATE THE HOSE GOING TO THE SPRAY NOZZLES! THERE SHOULD BE A T-SHAPED AREA WHERE IT SPLITS OFF TO BOTH NOZZLES! UNHOOK IT THERE AND TRY THE WASHER BUTTON! IF THE SPRAY IS GOOD, THEN THERE IS A CLOG IN THE LINE TO NOZZLES! IF NOT, IT COULD BE THE WASHER MOTOR, LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WASHER FLUID BOTTLE!

The winshield washer fluid won't work, but it sounds like I can hear the little motor when I push the end of the wiper blade switch


Push the washer fluid button and hold it for 20 sec then look under the truck and seeif you see the washer fluid dripping on to the ground, if theres no sign of the washer fluid then you have a bad washer pump, which is located on the side of the washer bottle, if theres fluid dripping then you will need to follow the line, start at the washer nozzles, this is where it breaks the most, if the line is plastic you can use a peice of rubber hose that size and connect the broken line back together with the hose, hope this helps.

03 dodge ram 1500 hesitates and tries to stall when in drive at stop sign or light.The tachometer fluctuates up then down hesitates then stalls.


Remove IAC (idle speed control) motor, clean with throttlebody spray cleaner & the port (hole)it came out of. Re-install & try it. If it cures it for a while & does it again, replace the IAC motor.
