LMAO!!! Thanks Bobby for your concise reply ~ much appreciated ;)


Because Bobby doesn't know what he's talking about, I figured I'd let you know. There is no low washer solvent indicator because the electrical system for that particular model is designed by Mazda, not Ford. Mazda opted not to put in that sensor as a cost save to the car.

Thanks Zach _ this makes more sense but still an oversight from a car company that has sold hundreds of thousands of these trucks in Canada. I ran out again last night on my way home in a snowstorm.

Yeah, I know. I hate driving to work at 4:00am in the winter and running out of fluid.
