Check Compression on cylinders looking for a bad head gasket. Look for bubbling in coolant and check spark plugs for residue. Check exhaust for steam.

Hope this helps?

Front washer motor not engaging, rear washer works

hits electric and water hydraulics, so 2 technologies merge.
1: fuses blown?
2: does pump motor spin when asked, (2 men or kit and you)
yes, good
no, ? bad, pull hose, spin now,
yes, line clogged
no? pump dead, or clogged clean pump or replace, your call.
if pump seems dead i check for 12vdc at pump on demand.
kid turns switch and 12vdc lands on motor pins.
got 12v, good.
so pump spins, and no squirt.
A: the line is long, very long. and can clog easy due to that fact
or the jet on the end is clogged.
so why no remove the hose. does the hose squirt on demand.? at rear of car>?
yes, nozzle clogged.
no,,, line clogged. big work finding long hose line.
some lines near front of car (hoses) have check valves.
they too love to clog.
there you go, washer 101.

Only one winshied wiper spray works

Check the rubber hoses to the sprayers. If they are on the hood they can come unplugged when you open it. Have a friend work the sprayers as you watch for leaks. An old toothbrush can be used to clean spray nozzles by scrubbing over the hole.

Rear wiper water wash jet not working, water pump working water bottle full winscreen dry

Look at the nozzle where the Fluid comes out.
Using a straight pin (like for sewing), inspect this hole. Insert the pin straight into the hole to see if you have any blockages. Recheck operations.
During the Winter these often become frozen with outside precipitation. You can also use a hair dryer set on "hot", and heat up and thaw-out the nozzle.
During the Summer months these often become blocked with wax or dirt.
If the Pump is actually working, you may have to disconnect and check the tubing for fluid flow.
Just because you hear the Pump "humming" does not mean the Pump is pumping.
If the Pump is pumping, the tubing may be clogged and/or frozen. Again use the hair dryer to thaw out.
Make sure you use the proper fluid and not water to prevent the system from freezing.
Further: If you have tried and tried to use the Pump with no results, you can burn the Pump Motor out. Again it may sound like it is working, but in actuality it is not pumping.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

Also could be cooling fans. Did you notice if your fans are working when it is hot? Could be bad fan relay which would keep your fans from turning.
