If you placed the washer fluid on the radiator expansion tank instead of the washer fluid tank, and it was only a small amount of a 1/4 cup as stated,don't worry about.It will not harm anything.
If you still want to remove the contents from the tank, you can use a turkey baster to pull the liquid out, then be sure to add antifreeze coolant to fill it back up to the proper level.

Windshield washer fluid motor.


With most Fords the screen wash motor is mounted on the bottom of the fluid reservoir, it is just pushed into the sealing ring. So just unplug the wires, twist and pull the motor out (your going to get wet, if fluid in reservoir), coat a little washing up liquid on the new pumps nozzle and push into place, reconnect wires. Job done

Need to add transmission fluid to 5 speed manual transmission on 1992 Toyota Celica


Open the hood up. You will find two different types of sticks, one near the alternator to the belts side, which is yellow or white colored and one on the battery side. It is orange colored, round small cup like dip stick, secured with a safety lock on it. Press the lock a side with your thump and take the stick out. When you push the stick inside it will sit in place firmly with a click sound.
You can add the Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) here.

Orange liquid leaking under the car


That would be either Antifreeze or trans fluid. Neither is good to lose. Your should check the fill levels of both fluids. The leak must be stopped.

In order not to damage it by driving, have someone look at it at home or tow it into a Repair shop.

Orange light on in van


you have put this in a merc C class classification but you state its a van ,so iam assuming its a commercial vehicle but this doesnt make a lot of difference ,well firstly iam colour blind but a orange light is the generator as the oil light is red ,or it could be depending on the symbol a low brake fluid or even a low washer bottle liquid ,check all the levels first and see if goes out .

Sometimes due to deposite of sediments in the hose or the joint of hose and reservoir the fluid stops flowing. Find out which is the washer reservoir, (there is one for the radiator with green liquid, and one for the washer with clear liquid) and the hose that leads to the windshield. Clean the whole hose of any blockages. Also check and clean the jet at the end of the hose. take a paper pin and clean the jet with it. And make sure that the hose is attached to the reservoir. Ask someone to run the washer and see where all these items lie.

Why would my transmition not engage we never had a problem till we put more fluid in it could it be the wronge color


IT SHOULD GIVE YOU THE REQUIRED SPECIFICATIONS ON THE FLUIDS TO BE PUT INTO YOUR VEHICLE. IF IT WAS THE CORRECT FLUID PUT INTO THE TRANSMISSION, YOU MAY HAVE JUST OVER FILLED THE TRANS FLUID. IF YOUR VEHICLE HAS A TRANSMISSION DIPSTICK (ORANGE), CHECK THE LEVEL READING.
