Windshield Washer Doesn't Squirt High Enough

The windshield washer on my 2007 Grand Caravan only squirts about one third of the way up the glass. Same on both sides. Dealer was unable to do anything last time I had it in. Is this normal? They say there is no adjustment so I'm wondering if maybe the pump is not strong enough.

    It's been this way since it was new. Last time the dealer had it they allegedly cleaned the jets. Shouldn't be sludge in the tank in a new car. I'm taking it back to the dealer next week and have an extended warranty which should cover it.

The only thing that you can do to resolve this is to Replace the Washer Pump. It should go half way up at Any given time. It sounds like what you said, It is a Weak Motor. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Hi Ed,

Suggest you clean the jets with a wire, pulled out of a wire brush, whilst someone operates the w/washers, and check the pipes to the jets for kinks, also try putting the garden hose in the w/washer tank too, and given it a flush out, as there might be some sludge restricting the pump inlet.
If no joy, a new washer pump looks like the final answer.

Good Luck !

If you think I have been of help to you, please give me a FixYa rating thank´s.

Windshield washer fluid doesn't squirt after windshield replacement

They probably knocked loose one or more of the tubes that carry the washer fluid. Try to trace the lines back from the sprayer nozzles and you may find the problem.

Windshield washer stays on too long in my cts 2007

Do you have one of those washers that wants to wsh the whole car for yu when you only need the window done? I am thinking it is in the switch that you push or turn to make it squirt.

I need the good marks, Let me know if it worked, Raz

Windshield Washer Pump Works But No Fluid Flow

May be the resevoir bottle may have something stuck in it, you are right, you may have a clogged line. Also check the routing of the hoses to the squirt that they are not pinched or kinked. Any washer fuild leaking anywhere?

How do you replace the tubing from the windshield washer bottle? where is the tubing located on 1997 dodge grand caravan?

If you've developed a leak than the problem lies within the washer tank and not the lines. If your washers just aren't squirting then you've got to clean the nozzles on the hood. The washer feed lines are very rarely at fault unless the vehicle has had a fire. Thank you, Dana

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner

it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.

Windshield wiper fluid won't squirt

When you pull the lever to activate the windshield washers, do you hear any type of sound coming from under the hood?  A whirring sound should be heard from the little electric pump that feds the washers.
If you can hear the whir, then you should look for a possible clog in the washer hoses (there is more than one...).
If you cannot hear the whirr, then you should check the fuse that protects the windshield washer circuit.  Check your owner's manual for the location and correct amperage for this circuit.
Good luck!

Front windshield washer won't squirt

Sometimes it's as simple as clogged jets where the solution comes out. I would take a fine needle or pin and insert it into the hole where the solution comes out to see if it frees it up enough to squirt first. They sometimes get clogged with salt or dirt.
