Anyone else have windshield washer problems?
The jets just slowed down to a trickle that barely hit the windshield a few days ago, and now they don't work at all. The wipers just go back and forth dry. Anyone else have this happen to them? I guess I can't complain too much after 75,000 miles... grin

Oh and, yes, I just filled it. rolleyes Still no deal. I guess I can go out there and stare at it under the Hood, but I'll probably end up going to the dealership. wtf

if you open your engine bay, look near the passenger side strut tower. You'll see a triangle arrangement of bolts. Near that area is a black flexible hose.Your Hood may be pinching it. That tube carries windshield washer fluid to the nozzles.

^^^ mine does that also. I think it's normal and not suppose to spray. I could be wrong.

also on a side note.. if it wasn't the pinched tube.. it could have been that the filter on the wiper pump motor was clogged..

on my dad's '87 camry had the same problem on the front windshilds.. we stuck pins in the nozzles.. still nothing..
eventually i bought an aftermarket motor at kragen for about $20.. when i pulled out the old motor i saw the old motor's filter was clogged with BLUE stuff.. blue stuff from the windshiled fluid..i guess the coloring agent eventually gets clumped up together.. and bam.. clogged filter..

..now i cleaned it out and now use this

Prestone Bug wash thumbsup

its about $1.00 more than the cheap 99cent blue cleaner a gallon but at least its smells real clean like and does a really nice job thumbsup
