Make sure that it is not still frozen it will then out slow. Check to see that none of the hoses are not broke or disconnected sometimes they hide them under the insulation under the hood if all of that is ok then you will need to replace the pump
good luck

Most likely the tubing between the pump and jets ruptured when the fluid froze. Have someone hold the spray lever/button while you follow the tubing from the jets down to the pump and check for leaks. Some of the tubing may run in the fender well and you will have to remove the plastic fender well lining above and behind the wheel to access it. It is possible that the pump was damaged by the freeze, but damage to the tubing is much more likely. Good luck, I hope this helps.

How to unblock rear window wiper water pipe on I10


Firstly have someone operate the rear washer while you listen for motor operation at the front wheel well of the car (same side as the washer fluid reservoir).
If you can't hear the motor, then the motor is likely faulty and requires replacement.
You can operate the front washers to locate where both motors are. (under the car, beside the wheel well.)


If the motor is working but no water is coming out, then remove the rear washer jet and disconnect, then using a high pressure airline, blow backwards into the jet to clear out any blockage. If you don't have a high pressure airline with nozzle, then use something like the nylon filament from a yard brush to poke into the jet, to try and clear the blockage.

I have a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS four door car and about a month ago the windshield wiper fluid has stopped working. When I pull the wiper ledger in the car to clean the windows, no fluid is coming into...


With the hood up, try to clean your windows. If you hear the washer motor running, you have clogged jets that need to be cleaned. You can use a small, sharp object to try to clean out the jets. If you can access the hoses that go to the jets, you can disconnect them and see if you can blow through them to clear the line or use compressed air.

If the washer pump is not working, I would disconnect the wires going to the pump. Test them using a voltmeter to see if you are getting power to the pump. If you are, it may be time for a new pump. If not check the fuse. If the fuse is good its in the control mechanism. Hope this helps. Good luck!

My screen washer isn't working properly


Hi Stuart,

The motor may be on its way out, but there is something you can do before you get a new one.

Disconnect the hose leading from the washer reservoir to the "jets" on the hood, or wipers, where ever they are located.

See if you can blow through the hose, if not, there is an obstruction. If you can, I don't know what to tell you.

Best of luck

2000 Chevy blazer this is the 2nd brand new fuel pump I've replaced in 2 weeks,It runs a hour or two, Then sitting all night won't work in the morning.Same thing the first time . I've checked fuse ,...


Spark......EQUIPMENT NEEDED: 1) fuel pressure Gage....Advanced Auto = $45..... 2) needle nose pliers ( fuse pull )..
There is a fuel pressure access valve located on the fuel injector rail. The access port or "shraider" valve has a black or gray screw on cap. Remove the cap and you will see the valve. CAUTION: The fuel rail is under pressure....before installing the pressure gauge, relieve pressure by starting the engine and removing the fuel pump fuse from the under hood fuse box......
Once the engine quits, turn the key to the off position and safely install the pressure gauge. Put a rag around or under the access valve to catch any drizzling fuel. I always prefer to do this when the engine is cool.
Install the pressure gauge, start the engine, check for leaks and read pressure output at idle, record pressure reading.
Also, it should be checked under load but you will need another person to help.
Once you have shut the vehicle off watch the pressure gauge, it should remain steady and not leak down.
Let me know what the readings are.
Regards,

WIper fluid does not flow


Hi Curran

Usual problem is that the jets nozzles become blocked.

Get a small sewing needle, and clear the jet, preferably when a friend operates the washers.

If this is not successful you will need to pull the feed hose off the jet body, and once again operate to check for blockage or a kinked pipe.

Good Luck !

Wiper washer


You didn't mention any lost fluids so we can assume that no hapless mechanic has accidentally pulled any tubing loose from the supply. 
If, as in many cars, the path of the tubing connecting the washer fluid bottle to the jets on the cowl are visible, carefully pull one the tubes loose and have someone operate the washer to see if the pump is doing anything any more. You may be able to find the 'Y' junction where the tubes split off to feed the two jets.
The rear window washer has its own fluid supply and pump so is completely independent of the front.
If you find the pump working, then you will have to carefully poke a soft, small gauge wire, preferably copper, to try to clean the jets themselves. You probably have some small bits of something clogging the jets and it can help if someone is keeping the washer pump running while you try to clear them as the pressure will aid you.     
Worst case, the jets can often be replaced fairly easy and at a cost of a few dollars.
