Check the bottle or where the pump is . make sure the suctio or pick up tube isn restricted. It should have a filtering screen in its tip. Second, pour som clr in the tand mixed with water to remove any cuilbup at the nozzles. The clr will clean the whole system. If a nozzle quits use compressedair to clear it. Good Luck

Ihave a 2000 Nissan frontier 2wd and it has 3.3 motor,in the morning when its cold it will not go in gear,it has an automatic,but if I put it in d2 it will go in gear. does anyone know what the proble

Try having the transmission fluid flushed and replaced with high quality tran fluid. If that does not help let the car warmup before you drive it as this condition is also called transmission slipping. This happens due to the truck being in very cold weather. The system freezes and contracts, plus the fuel line fluid begins to leak from the seals resulting in a low line pressure. If the vehicle faces a low line pressure or inadequate fuel supply within the system, the gears would refuse to function correctly and that would cause slipping.

Your hoses could be frozen if its cold where you are. Check the hoses for cracks. You might find fluid in your engine compartment if you have a broken hose. Listen to hear if the motor is pumping. There should be some sound either a click or a whiz sound when you push the washer button. If you hear no sound then check the wires on the pump. If they look good you probably need to replace the pump.

There is very low pressure on the washer fluid what could it be

Look over all the rubber hoses going between the spray motor and the nozzles. You likely have a leak, or even clogged if not that then the pump could be going

Wiper fuel not working looking for the motor. checked the fuse it was oK, Sounds like the motor is working but nothing coming out.

the washer pump is in the bottom of the reservoir. look up from underneath and you will see two wires and a hose coming out of the bottom of the reservoir. pull off the hose and hit the washer button. if the fluid squirts out, then you have a blockage in the washer lines, just follow the hoses and locate it. often when the weather is cold and you do not use the more expensive washer fluid, the fluid just freezes in the lines and nothing comes out until it warms up. water freezes below 32 degrees in case you never noticed. go to walmart, autozone, advance they all sell a winter version of the fluid with a lower freezing temperature. if the pump motor is turning but nothing is squirting out and it is over 32 degrees then i would pull the whole contraption out of the car and give it a good flushing out, something is blocking the pump inlet. if that still does not do it then take a look on ebay for a working replacement.

We were told that our windshield washer filter was clogged when we reported that it was working poorly to the dealer that we bought our used 2005 Hyundai from. They fixed it, but it's doing it again, just...

sometimes there is, and sometimes there isnt, if there is one it will be on the bottom of your windshield washer tank.. sounds like they fed you a line of **** to me... and if they arent i would take it back and ask them why its doing it again, and why they didnt clean the tank out before... theres something else going on.. either a leak in one of the hoses, your low on fluid, or the pump is weak... i think they fed you a line.. hope this helps

Window washers dont work

Cold temps can cause freezing, pour warm water on the nozzle and hoses. Next, some blue washer fluid can clog the nozzles, use a pin to clear them but be careful as you may break the point off. lastly the spray motor my be bad, would have to replace it. Check with AutoZone or O'Reiley....

I am having honda touring 2006.The windshield fluid is not comming out looks like it got froze in between somwhere

this is what happens in cold weather especially when using low grade windshield washer fluid, the best thing to do is find a heated garage to put it in until they start working but first test windshield washer motor to see if it works.

Winshield Washer Fluid extremely low pressure

The washer pump is located in the right front fender, mounted infront of the wheel. Remove the front portion of the wheel well splash cover to gain excess. This pump does the work for the front and rear washers. Verify that the pump is working and then check for a pinched hose.
However, if you hear the pump working,as you say, open the hood and take the hoses off the squirter nozzles to see if there is good flow of fluid. If there is, then your nozzles are plugged. You may be able to clean them out with some air pressure. Careful working with the nozzles, as they are plastic and break easy.

No front washer jets

well the easiest way to tell if the motor is working properly and the hose and the {Jets are not frozen / clogged up is to remove the hose to the pump or from one of the jets to see if fluid comes out when activated ....some washer fluid will freeze up in the line etc if it is not winter blend ..rendering warmer weather temperature fluid useless
this is the easiest way in determining this
