    Are you talking about the windshield washer fluid, or the radiator coolant?

Depending when you bought your windshield washer fluid you may have summer formula. Stores will stop selling winter formula, which won't freeze, around march. if you have the older fluid it may have frozen in the line, and anti freeze won't help. What you will need to do is on a calm day let the car idle to warm up all the parts under the hood. With an assisstant have them operate the washers. If it isn't getting to the windshield it probably broke somewhere under the hood. It won't be difficult to find when your operator is working them. Your local autoparts store will have fittings and hoses to remedy the problem. Thanks, and don't forget to vote.

If you mean the rear window washer... the tank for that is located at the rear of the vehicle... lift up the hatch and look around the edges for a place to fill it... failing that in one of the side pockets of the trunk

Where can I look for the leak that floods the passenger side floor?

Look for places where two or more body panels meet. They're most likely secured together with spot welds and filled with sealant at the factory. You may have to look in the channels that are under trim surrounding a window or other glass. I had have 2013 Altima that pooled water in the rear seat floor area nearly 2 inches deep due to a poor seal between two panels in the engine compartment (firewall) just below the front windshield. Water followed wiring channels and contours in the floor pan (without getting carpet wet) to the lowest point - the back seat floor. So - don't overlook *anything* Good luck!

Only rear winscreen washer working

Either the switch or the washer motor, or the nozzles are blocked in the front. Have someone select the washer and listen if you can hear the pump running, if not remove the front pump and power it directly from the battery to see if it will run. If it does check the lines and jets for obstructions. Last choice is replace the switch. (Costly and difficult).

All my antifreeze is gone no heat

DO NOT RUN THE CAR WITH NO WATER,water has to be present in the reservoir to enable the output of heat from the heaters. switch the engine off put water in the reservoir/antifreeze look at the bottom of your engine, see if there is a leak, ifnot fill water on to correct level, close cap, turn engine on, check for leak under the engine, if not when engine reaches optimum temperature, your car should give out heat. after an hour check level of water in reservoir. if it has totally depleted or decreased by a significant amount then, go straight to the mechanic and tell him your observations, it could be your HEAD GASKET, if it is then start saving

Had the water pump and thermostat replaced still leaking antifreeze and over heating

You need to look in the engine compartment to see where the antifreeze is leaking. It could be coming from a hose or the radiator. Get a flashlight and start in the front of the engine compartment and work toward the back to locate the wet spot. The source of the leak will be in front of or above the wet spot. If you do this with the engine hot (be careful so that you do not burn yourself), you may be able to see the coolant spraying out somewhere. You could also get a pump from your local auto parts store and pressurize the system while it is cold and look for the spray.

Leaking coolant from the rear of the engine compartment near the ac drain on a 97 isuzu rodeo 3.2 litre. Not coming from the heater core hoses.Cant seem to find the leak.

try using a mirror to see in the rear of the motor because ther are freez or welch plugs at th rear of the head & engine block!
it may also be leaking behind the flywheel & can only be seen coming from where the transmission or gearbox bolts to th motor!

While running air conditioner, water began leaking from under dash on both sides of my 99 Nissan Frontier.

check the soft rubber drain tube inside the engine compartment it hangs down between firewall and engine, squeeze it to let the water out probably cloged. if cloged it backs up water into the passanger compartment and leaks inside car

Rear Window Sprayer not working.

Rear washer pump is located near bottom of washer reservoir, below the left front wheel house extension and between left inner and outer fenders. Have some operate the rear washer switch while you listen in this area to find out if the the pump is running. The hose from the pump routes up along side the reservoir filler neck, into the engine compartment. Just aft of the reservoir neck an in-line connector joins the hose to the engine compartment hose. The engine compartment hose travels the top left front fender wheel house to the dash panel, passing through a grommet into the passenger compartment. In the passenger compartment, another connector joins the engine compartment hose, and then up through the front driver pillar to the headliner, then above the headliner along the left roof to the rear of the vehicle. It comes out above the lift gate, in the hinge gap, and into the lift gate to the nozzle.

Not likely to be stopped up. First find out if the pump is running, and that there's fluid in the reservoir. Look for fluid running out somewhere near the reservoir. The pump isn't running, or the hose is disconnected around the tank. Look for leaks (when running the pump, and reservoir filled) at the lift gate hinge joint.
