    Is the pump pumping when disconnected from the nozzles?

It may be that the nozzles are clogged, in which case, replacing them is best. The pumping efficiency may have fallen below the neccessary threshold requiring pump replacement.

Check the pump for operation, all check the fuse and relays for the washer fluid

Both the front and back wipers of my 2007 Saturn Vue work, but no fluid comes out, even though it's full, and no sound is heard like it does when out of fluid.

Many possibilities.
Check to see if the electric motor that pumps the washer fluid is working by detaching the hose at the bottom of the washer tank and starting the car & dashboard washing switch ( the multi-switch that controls the washer.)
If you get no fluid squirting out, either the fuse or the washer pump motor is bad.
If it is pumping fluid out there, try hooking a hose to the fluid line and blowing on it to see if fluid will pass through the line, or if it is plugged up ( usually at the nozzle).
If that is clear, perhaps the whole system has lost it's "prime".
Try charging the whole system with water by blowing water from your mouth into the washer lines.
Many cars can lose their "prime" with months or years of dis-use.
God bless your efforts.

Rear washer not dispensing washer fluid

Fluid in tank? or does it feed from front tank? Is there a pump in the rear tank? does the pump run? Could be electrical connections or switch problems if not pump motor. If freezing weather is washer fluid freeze proof? if not motor pump may be damaged.

Windshield washer fluid doesn't squirt after filling the resevoir & resevoir is empty later.

Make sure your washer fluid line that goes from the tank to the pump is connected.

if you can hear the pump running when you hit the washer control you may have either a crimped hose somewhere or the spray nozzles may be clogged .also you might have a clogged hose . try the sprayer with the hood open and if it works , your hose is folding when you close the hood . if it still doesn't work , with hood open , dis-connect the hose at the sprayer . if washer fluid is coming out you can clear out the nozzles with a piece of fine wire .

Winsheild washer wont squirt

Possible bad wiper fluid pump. Remove the washer fluid tank and run a jumper to the positive ( red ) wire on the pump. If the pump runs then it's good and you may have a plugged line. Remove the small rubber hose from the bottom of the tank and try shooting compressed air into it to clear the line of obstructions and then re - install everything, fill tank 1/4 way and test. If it works you'll be good to finish filling the tank !
Hope this helps!

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.....

Liftgate washer problem on 2003 Ford Windstar

Yes a shop is usually great advice with this but heres some things you can do yourself. first lets keep it simple have you inspected rear nozzle and cleared nozzle openings with sharp pin?
First you must have these following tools:
haynes or chiltons repair manual
multitester with voltage and impedance features
Step one: location reservoir for washer fluid
Step two: access the sprayer motors under washer reservoir
step three: using multi tester set to 20V test hot leads to motors if theres power then move on if not check fuses and follow power leads to look for damaged power wiring
Step four: if there was power make sure the lines are intact and full of fluid after youve pressed switch (you may have to trace fliud line all the way to the rear for damage or leaks)
After all this you should've been able to find problem theres nothing left once theres power and fluid to rear nozzle except clearing the nozzle openings
