Make sure you have water or windshield wiper fluid in the reserve (open your hood and add more, look for a blue plastic cap) if you hear it humming when you turn it on then the pump is working. Also check the little nozzles on the hood (one on each side) and see if they are clogged, stick a small safety pin into the holes and move it in and out to free up ant debris inside that may stop the water from squirting out

Open your hood and have a helper run the washer system while you inspect for any leaks that may exist from broken or disconnected hose. u may even hear the fluid.

I have a 1988 Oldsmoble cutlass supreme gt and it wont start unless i spray starter fluid in the carbuerator.

Sounds like you are not getting any gas to the carb. Turn the key one click with radio off but don't try to start the car and listen for a humming sound coming from the rear of the car (gas tank area). You are listening to hear for the fuel pump. If you don't hear any humming then either the fuel pump relay is shot (cheapest fix) or the fuel pump is shot.

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.

Humming sound undercar

Does this happen at all while turning the car? It could be a hub bearing. Just replaced mine and it was a humming sound. It would be pretty loud around 15 to 40 mph but got quieter after that.

After I turn off my car I hear the sound of a motor running and a black tube-like cable vibrates. What is it?

It probably is your radiator cooling fan. It will run until the car temperature drops to near level temperature The line vibrating is more than likely just vibration of the which is nothing unusual.Hope this helps;

No fuel getting to injecdtors

2 things to check. Do a fuel pressure check. It will tell you if the pump is working. Take off the fuel cap and have another turn the key to the on position, but not start. You should be able to hear a humming sound coming from the pump. If you hear this, start by changing the fuel filter. If you do not hear the humming sound at the cap, time to replace the fuel pump.

I have a humming noise in my 2003 ss Chevy Silverado. It's loud in the cab but you can't hear it outside. The hum sounds like underneath somewhere. I heard it might be a belt or the tires. thank...

If it were the belt you would hear it clearly with the hood open! So if you don't it probably isn't the belt - but you should still check the condition of the belt - any cracks?
The tires would be loudest if the windows were down and driving - if that isn't the case - probably not that either.

Humming noise could be many things and you need to localize the problem. If it sounds like an electronic hum you might want to check the fuel pump since you almost sit on the tanks.

Try turning everything off - radio, ac, etc off and see if you can at least localize the sound to a particular area.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?

This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

Doesnt start but turns over

there could be a couple of things that could be wrong with your car first of all saturns are bad for the ignition switchs going bad, another thing is the fuel pump could have went out they will go out without warning. The way to check the fuel pump is to go to the gas cap and remove it and put your ear down to the nozzle and have someone turn the key to the on position and listen 4 a humming sound if you dont hear no humming sound most definitely your fuel pump is out. If you do hear a humming sound your fuel pump is working like it suppose to. Then you will have to have the key switch checked by a dealer to see if the switch needs replaced. hope this helped

Often, that sort of humming is a wheel bearing. Since you have newer tires, and the noise gets louder when you steer, it could also be your CV joints, but the wheel bearing is the most likely suspect.

My 2009 Nissan ultima windshield wipe won't squirt fluid

Have someone listen by the washer solvent resevoir, while you turn on the wipers and washer. If you hear the pump motor, you might have a plugged washer nozzle. Sometimes a very small needle or pin will "clear" out the hole.
If you don't hear the pump, you will need to get a volt meter at the wire harness to see if you have power to the pump to decide if the pump, or switch is the issue.
