Where is the thermostat in reference to the windshield reservoir?

Asked by Feb 21, 2007 at 03:01 PM about the 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just had the thermostat changed in my car. The mechanic also added the needed amount of antifreeze afterwards.  Now, my windshield wiper fluid is no longer coming out of my wipers, and the resevoir is full. Could the mechanic have done anything wrong, to cause this? It was working fine before I took it in for the thermostat.

Hi ktaran. It's unlikely that the repair to your thermostat directly led to problem you are having with your windshield fluid flow but moving around the engine compartment can sometimes crimp or disturb other systems. If you live in a cold weather area like I do your windshield wiper fluid is life itself. Go back to the mechanic and have him run down the issue with the fluid. Once he figures that out it will become pretty obvious whether the two are related or whether they were unhappy coincidence. He'll probably just take care of it either way if it's a small problem. Good luck!
