Fixed It !

Ok, Went out this morning and fixed it - works great now. I could hear the pump running so I had tried cleaning out the nozzles, disconnected and blew thru the lines, checked all connections for leaks, ect - Finally took off washer tank to look at pump. I had the separate the two tanks (washer and coolant) by cutting, no big deal since they have there own mounting brackets - the AC lines were in te way to take the whole tank off together. After that I pulled off pump which is just a pressure fit into a rubber ring. I pulled off the rubber ring next and it had a screen on the inside that was completely blocked off by some type of slime. Cleaned that screen, put back together and works perfect - about a 1 hour fix -

Glad to hear it! I never realized there was a crud-catcher in the reservoir. Good to know!
