If the pump is making noise when you press the washer-fluid button then it is probably a hose issue. Open the hood of your car and have someone press the button. If you can see where the fluid is spraying out, then you have found the disconnected hose. It should not have fallen too far away from where it is supposed to be connected, so it should not be too hard to reconnect it.
If your washer fluid pump is not making noise when you press the button, then check the pump. If there are no loose electrical connections, then the pump it probably dead. Replace the pump and you will be fine. If you notice a burned looking wire near the pump, then you should be able to replace the wire and be OK -- but this usually indicates that there is a bigger problem at hand (wires usually don't just burn out for no reason).
I know this one is going to sound silly ... but have you made sure the washer fluid level is full? If your tank is empty, it won't spray. Double check this before you spend any money on anything else -- sometimes the washer-fluid tank will crack and leak, so even if you fill it, it will be empty again by the time you go to use it again (it once took me a month to find out that this was the problem in one of my old cars ... ha ha ha ... I felt really silly)
Most likely it is just a hose. Most auto makers use a friction connection for these hoses since it won't kill anyone if it pops off. If you find that this IS the problem, I recommend using a zip-tie to secure the hose where it is supposed to be so you don't have to deal with the same problem repeatedly.

Ever since i ran my isusu rodeo out of gas, it will crank but it does not want to crank. I've add additives to clean the injectors, i've changed the EGR sensor, with very little help. cld u give...

maybe it didnt run out of gas but just shut down, if it did run out it may have sucked up dirt from the botoom of the tank causing the fuelpump to lock up, what you can try to see if the pump starts again is to spray starting fluid into throtle body and cranking the engine, the engine should start and will die out after fluid is burnt but may stay running if power stays to pump and it frees up, you may have to try this a few times, if you spray and it doesnt start then you may have a diffrent problem. make sure to have someone hold pedal to floor and spray for 3sec, then release gas pedal connect hose to throtlebody and try to start. good day.

97 isuzu rodeo do can I change the filter, looks impossible, or do I just drain fluid and add new?

On what? Transmission I'd assume? If so you've gone that far pull the pan and change it. Why would you put new fluid to run thru a dirty filter when it's probably the filter causing the symptoms that got you started in the first place?

Probably 5w30. If it has a manual it will tell you. Most oil caps or oil fill plugs will tell you. You can also go to and check their manuals for fluid info under the general section.
