Asked by Dec 17, 2014 at 05:09 PM about the 2010 Nissan Sentra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Window Washer Fluid container is full but when you pull the lever to squirt the front
windshield, the passenger side sprayer doesn't squirt at all the the driver's side only
squirts a little? What is the problem?

Blockage in the lines or the pump is just about dead.


You can submerge them, use a straightened paperclip or shop air to blow back thru on many types of nozzles. Having contaminated washer solvent can cause this and much sitting in a wet climate is more likely they are full of funky buildup in my experience.

Bad Prosrate?

meant to say Bad Prostrate


The medical term you are trying to spell is prostate. Your ma is goin to whoop you now. unless it is too late. All you can do is use wikipedia or a webster's .

You obviously knew what term I meant to type, or you wouldn't have corrected me! It must be hard for you to keep that "know it all" mentality going, day in and day out.


saw you having trouble correcting yourself, so , offering the benefit of my own experience. Gran would go after ma and then I would get told to find the medical term and use it. comical to me so I was sharing, sorry. didn't mean to upset your apple cart.

No problem, I apologize for my own sarcastic comment. How did I do with that?


allright, you must be older than i first imagined. But hey, they are trying to clear their windshield with this thread. So I can surface elsewhere.
