Is it spraying and sucking up ok? Check the filter inside the dirty water tank, it needs a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. If it isn't spraying out a good stream along the bottom, maybe running a mix of vinegar and water may clean out the lines to help it spray better.

My hoover steam vac is losing all the cleaner and water out of tank the trigger isn't stuck

You will need a resevoir. This is the valve that the solution tank sits on when put on the machine. If your exact part number is not available ask to look at another model series, you may get a different colo but you will have a working steam cleaner.
