Anything can hit your windshield during a drive -- rainwater, snow and ice, debris, road salt, insects, you name it. Once caked on and dry, that mess can begin to smear, and that's sure to make it harder to see the road. It's a good thing you've got the right set of windshield wipers to sweep everything away. Don't discount a good OEM windshield washer pump, though: it's also critical to the cleanup process.
Windshield washer pumps are basically motors that draw washer fluid from a reservoir and send it through hoses, out nozzles, and onto your windshield. The liquid can then loosen and dilute the muck, so your wiper blades have an easier time removing it. Unfortunately, washer pumps can go bad sometimes.
What are the Signs of a Bad Windshield Washer Pump?
There are several. They include:
- When washer fluid won't spray evenly. This can indicate line or nozzle blockage or a non-working pump.
- When washer fluid won't spray at all. This suggests that either the pump's reservoir is empty or the pump itself is damaged or broken.
- When the pump won't engage when you try spraying fluid. This tells you the pump may not be getting the power it needs.
