    On my 1990 ford f250..... I noticed my wiper spray wasn't working anymore so i went out got some fluid(thinking i was all out) When i went to fill it i noticed it was half full.My wipers work fine, is there a separate pump for the fluid that may have went out?My brother said he thinks there may be a fluid pump inside the reservoir that probably stopped working . I checked with the auto parts store online and couldn't find anything on it. Any help would be great .:help:

    washer pump is in the bottle

    when holding the washer switch

    see if you can hear the pump running
    if not youll need a test light to check for power+12v

    and ground-12v

    Maybe the sprayers are plugged?? I had to run a wire in the spray nozzels on a truck a while back.

    I have also used an electric pump setup that is added inline with the existing washer setup. It just pulls fluid thru the failed factory pump. Seems to me that setup was under $30.00.

    Anyhow, good luck
