Alot of time some dirt will clog the nozzle. You can take a needle and stick it in the nozzle to clear it out, or you can use shop air and blow it out. seen it a bunch of times and thats it usually some sort of blockage in the nozzle itsself.

The thing in the hood that squirts the fluid

The nozzles are at the back edge of the hood. You might be able to remove a hose from the back side and test it.

Okay cool im gonna go check real quick

I have a KIA Sedona 2008 that has stopped squirting at all. The pump still works because when I unhook the rubber tubes, the pump still shoots water quite well. After sticking in straight pins into the nozzle outlets, the water still does not shoot out well. Any suggestions about how to change it out or what to try next?
