Going high, then coming back down in a short time is caused by an air pocket in the engine. When the air reaches the thermostat, the temperature climbs fast. Then when the coolant comes back the temperature goes back to normal. Check your coolant reservoir and the hose that goes to it. If the reservoir has coolant in it, it is probably OK. Next is the hose from the reservoir to the radiator. It can't have any kinks/bends in it that will pinch it off. What happens is the radiator gets hot and pushes coolant out to the reservoir. When the radiator cools down it will try to pull coolant, if the line is bent, it won't pull any. Causing an air pocket in the radiator. Also check the reservoir and radiator cap/s.
Park the vehicle in a dry area, try pressing the washer, open bonnet and have a look to see if there is any water on the ground or in engine bay, if there is then one of the hoses that go to the washer nozzles have broken or come off, simply replace, if there is no sign of water, get yourself a fine pin and clear the nozzle with it (where the water comes out from), if you can get behind the nozzle you can also blow it out with compressed air, usually this happens after polishing the vehicle.
sounds like the water hose is kinked or the outlet ( inside the reservoir ) is blocked. also check to see if the spouts are blocked with dirt and stuff,, ( could be a blockage at the 'Y' fitting ). if you disconnect the line from the pump you should be able to blow air through to check flow to the spouts/sprayers.
try and fill up the washer bottle with water for test and use it. if you hear the pump work keep using it till you see where fluid is leaking out. my guess is a hose is broken and all the fluid is leaking out
the fuse is the same as for the wipers and push on washer switch and see if you can hear washer pump run,otherwise try this (unless the motor pump has been dry run too long and ruined pump assy) and can't pump any longer go to a garage that has compressed air and at the wiper nozzles first gently blow air into each nozzle, then go to reservoir and remove supply hose to wiper nozzles and blow air gently and see if there's an obstruction in the line, you can use say 30 lbs max,reason being if any hoses where you cant get to them they can blow off fittings, also take air hose and on top of reservoir blow into hole on top of reservoir to push product thru lines and help pump (same as removing hose) on reservoir, I bet its unprimed itself or blocked with dirt,try this first
but the washer fluid motor is at the bottem of the washer fluid reservoir. it will have to wires conecting it to a power/ground. if you can not locate it and there is a hose leading away from the washer fluid reservoir follow it till you reach a motor. will be black, has 2 wires.
