Windshield Washer Fluid Weak

Q: The windshield washer is only spraying to the bottom of the windshield. It looks like a weak stream. What could be the problem?

A: You could have a clogged nozzle end, split or kinked windshield washer hose, or weak washer pump. Remove the windshield washer hose from the nozzle and then try it. If the stream is strong, the nozzle is your problem. Use a needle to clean the end. If is still weak, inspect the hose from the nozzle to the windshield washer reservoir for kinks or splits. Another possibility is a defective windshield washer check valve that is restricting the flow.
