Asked by Feb 16, 2016 at 02:32 PM about the 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I fill my fluid resivoir it leaks out instantly
and I've tried simultaneously filling it and activating
the motor and it doesn't go through does anyone
know if it would be the reservoir is cracked or is
there a tube not connected or?

yes, a tube...but like my toyota...the damned motor rusted and fell out...and the connector did not connect, but needed to be stripped and soldered...and I had to buy lugs to crimp on~ and came out okay, but had to replace the entire washer tank to fix the motor...near impossible to see down there (maybe with a dental mirror) but you may want to just order a replacement tank...extra hose should be there...beware of connector incompatibilities~ ....tho YES, a hose on the bottom may have fallen off~


Check to see if the tank may have a leak and see if your hose may have fallen off as Bob says..

we used to do a "farmer's repair" back in the early 80's in Wisconsin..you'd simply trim 1/2 inch off the troubled hose and stuff it back on, because the failure is due to Bloating, which you trim off~ so this NO cost repair might help if on a budget~
