Its not the end of the world as we know it.
You could probably take the tank off and clean it out and go on.
The only down side is the solvent will dilute the coolant, but not that much.

the windshield washer pump might be bad. It should be located somewhere on the reservoir

Hi
The problem is most likely 90% head gaskets but could be intake manifold gasket leaking too. Intake gasket has to be checked when intake is removed. Might find problem there if not continue and remove heads. Bars Leak will not work.

SOURCE: windshield washer fluid reservoir - MB ML 350

right where the lines connect to reservoir, has little black seals that leak. I recommend removing reservoir, empty it out, then use RTV silicone and place it between seals and reservoir. Let it dry for FULL day. than reinstall.

SOURCE: Windshield washer not working properly

If you have used ANYTHING beside windshield solvent in you reservor, you may have created WAXING from soap in the bottom of washer tank, which clogs pump,lines, and nozzel....take the tank out and wash it..disconnect washer hoses at nozzel and clear with compressed air along with the nozzel...if you use solvent only you may have a worn washer pump or restriction...check those and good luck.....

Where is the power steering fluid located?


It basically depends up on ,what is your car model and year.But the fluid is located in reservoir. The power steering fluid reservoir is located next to the coolant overflow tank and the windshield washer fluid reservoir. The location of reservoir can be different or some car model ans year.

I just wanted to know where to pour the antifreeze in a 1196 toyota camry. I know I should pour it in the radiator or something but I'm not sure where that is?


Hi, coolant goes into the reservoir pictured below. There is a different reservoir for the windshield washer fluid. There is also a much smaller reservoir for the brake fulid. That one is in the right rear of the engine compartment, just in front of the driver. Be careful not to put coolant in the brake or washer fluid reservoir. Thanks for using FixYa.

I know it doesn't sound like much, but, that is a very nice car that you have, and there are many sensors that could be damaged by the amonia in the washer fluid. This is what I would do.
You don't need to flush the whole cooling system, but, you want to try and empty out the coolant reservoir. You, or some can just pull the hose of the bottom of the reservoir and let it drain, or, some people might use something like a turkey baster to draw the fluid out of the top.

It may not hurt anything, but, I wouldn't want to take a chance unless I absolutely had to.

Good luck!

Hello: Recommend flush. You don't know what chemicals are in easier fluid so it will be lots cheaper to flush than replace water pump, radiator, heater core etc.

Adding water to a 1996 ford contour?


Check the level of the coolant in the reservoir at least once a month. Be sure to read and understand precautions when servicing your vehiclein this chapter.If the engine coolant has not been checked for a long period of time, the engine coolant reservoir may eventually empty. If this occurs, add engine coolant to the coolant reservoir. For more information refer toAdding engine coolantin this chapter.
Automotive fluids are not interchangeable; do not use engine coolant, antifreeze or windshield washer fluid outside its specified function and vehicle location.

Check page 169 from Ford-Contour-Owners-Manual for other details.

Hope helps (remember comment andf rated this).
