2006 Chevrolet Equinox Washer Fluid all over back floorboard

I have a 2006 Chevy Equinox that will not hold on to washer fluid. I can fill up the reservoir and the front will work fine (the back is difficult to see because of the tinting, and I haven't taken the time to park someone else back there to check it). After about an hour or so, the reservoir is bone dry and the back passenger floorboard is soaking wet with the washer fluid. Is there a hose back here that's easily replaced or am I looking at taking it to the shop for repair?

    I know that I have a leak and approximately where the leak is. I'm just wondering if this is user-serviceable or if I need to invoke my warranty and make the dealer do it.

    Nobody has experience with this hose? That's disappointing.

Where can I purchase fuse #45 for my chevrolet equinox lt 2007 in richmond, va


It sounds as if the windshield washer pump, located at the base of the windshield washer fluid reservoir, has lost it's seal. When this occurs, washer fluid seeps into the pump and shorts it out. I advise that you remove the pump to confirm this before replacing the fuse. A replacement wind washer pump and fuse can be found at your dealer, local auto parts store or the internet (Rockauto.com has always been a great source for quality parts at a very competitive price and I use them all the time). Hope this helps.

2006 equinox washer pump not working


If your sure there is fluid in the reservoir and not leaking out ( you'll notice by looking under the car right after you fill the reservoir. If the problem isn't either of those a fuse is bad (doubtfully) its probably a bad pump the pumps the fluid.

Equinox has wet floors on both sides in front.....windshield wiper fluid has been filled twice, and just becomes empty. 2008 chevy equinox, do not know what is wrong or what is leaking


1) don't these cars come with a 5 year 50,000 mile warranty? if so take it to a dealer

2) if not under warranty I would replace the washer fluid lines coming from the washer fluid reservoir. something has become disconnected and fluid is not getting to the nozzles. you may need a repair manual to show you how to get to them.

Hi, where do i find the dipstick to check the trans fluid on a 06 chevy equinox?


this model doesn't have a transmission fluid dip stick, it is a sealed transmission, there is a fill plug on the case of the transmission just above the pan in most cases, the fluid should be just below the plug, u must access this from under the car.

How to check transmission fluid level


Unfortunately you can not. Chevy put sealed transmissions on most of their cars starting in 2006. It would be out of luck if you got one without a sealed transmission. If you did, look behind the engine on the passenger side for a dipstick similar to your oil dipstick. If you dont see one, you will have to go to the dealership to have it checked.

On my 06 equinox the rear window fluid is empty and I cant find how to refil it


The fluid for the rear washer just comes from the front fluid container. If it is not coming out through your rear squirter, try and hold the lever that makes it spray for about 10 seconds. If it is still not working, there may be either a blockage in the lines (if you live in a cold climate it could be frozen), or the line may be broken or disconnected, or the pump that supplies washer fluid to the rear window could be burned out, or the fuse could be blown.

If you activate the rear window washer, do you hear any pumps making any noises? If it is making noises, then the pump works, meaning either the line is frozen, broken, or disconnected.
If you do not hear pump noises, then it is either your fuse for the pump, the pump itself, or perhaps even the switch (which is less likely)

All of these solutions are only going to help if you make sure that the washer fluid container is full :)

I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox and my windshield washer fluid does not work. The reservoir is full and the wipers wipe, but no fluid comes out. nothing is leaking under the car either. what else can i check...


u will need to pull the washer fluid tank out and check to see if the tank motor that pumps the fluid is getting 12 volts when the washer switch is pushed, if it is the pump will need to be replaced, if it isn't then the washer switch is defective, this switch is part of the turn signal switch.

2005 chevy equinox, washer motor working but no fluid is coming out to either front or back


hiya
it uses one washer fluid tank in the engine area that provide fluid for front/rear windows.
you could pull the rubber hose off at the bottom as a first check to ensure the washer pump does function to shoot fluid from the washer fluid tank.
if there's fluid still in it, look inside to ensure no forgein/gunk object is plugging the bottom inside.
check the washer fluid tank in the engine area and see if the rubber hose is still connected to it?
also check for no kinked or pinched point along the hose...just follow the hose to see it's not compressed flat which could be the cause of restricted washer fluid movement.
