Question about Cars & Trucks
I wish to refill wind shield washing fluid. Is this simple water or something else?
Washer fluid is simply clean fresh water with a grime busting additive added by you when refilling the bottle. Fill the bottle with clean fresh water and add the detergent in the proportion as on the bottle.( windscreen cleaner --not washing up detergent---too corrosive on the metal and paint work)

Normally yes just ordinary water but if you want you can add a few drops of dish washing liquid for an anti streak windshield (remember just a few drops as you dont want to put too much because you will land up with a very foamy car)

SOURCE: Water on floor board
The drain tubes are a definate possibility, but, usually you will see a water mark on the headliner. The panels are fairly easy to remove, if it has assist handles you will need to remove the rubber or plastic plugs that cover the screws, then remove the screw and gently pull out and upward on the panel, it has metal clips that snap into the sheet metal but it also will have a plastic hook to locate the bottom of the panel, you don't want to break this. This will allow you to check the drain tubes. Also don't rule out the windsheild itself. Especailly if it has ever been replaced. Sometimes there is an air bubble in the sealer/adhesive tube they use to secure the windsheild, if not caught and filled in it will cause a water and or air leak (this happens from the factory too).

No drain plug..
Should only be a few screws to remove it so you can empty it out..
Hope this helps !!

Look underneath the front of the car at the bottom of the radiator (you may have to remove some plastic shields) and you will find a "petcock" This is a just a big screw with a wingnut attatched to it. Get a pair of pliers and open it up and remove it. Get a bucket to collect all of the fluid (antifreeze, windshield washer fluid) that runs out the bottom of the radiator. Next get a flat head screwdriver and release the upper or lower radiator hose clamp and pull the hose off of the housing so you can get all of the fluid that is trapped inside the engine block. Run the engine for like 10-15 min to get ALL fluid out of system. Watch your temp gauge so you don't over heat the engine. Get some new antifreeze from your autoparts store and after you reconnect the raditor hose and bottom drain plug, pour new fluid into the top of radiator (remove radator cap) and fill it back up with water. Allow engine to run and check it after 15-20 min, then top it off with more water to complete the fill

is the fluid going somewhere, check your hose to the wipers. Check your fuses, if this does not work motor may be bad but very unlikely.
