No hose issues. It started working again the other day. Ordered a complete set of check valves and nozzles. Apparently, the check valves are prone to failure. Why add a component, that when it fails prevents you from washing your windows, thus, degrading your visibility?Is the integrity of the washer hose OK, near as you can tell from the hood end of the car?
I had these exact symptoms. The pressure of the washer fluid kept blowing the hose apart at a junction (in this case) near the strut tower. Kept soaking the area until I got it tightened and secured again.
Hopefully it's just that simple.
The Buick heats all around but feels better up high. So I drive like a teen doing a driving test. :lol2:You have to watch about heated steering wheels, our Lexus is only heated at 3 and 9 o'clock. Normally I don't position my hands there, so the wood is cold on the rest of the wheel.
Your miles would be about a year for me in my wagon.Wrapped up a 886 mile road trip to visit our daughter at college this weekend. 29.3 MPG on the southbound leg and 29.9 MPG on the northbound leg. Would have broken 30 on the return trip, but played on some back roads instead. Too easy to blow past the posted speed limit through the twists and turns, though.
The roads in SW PA are really crappy right now. Pot holes everywhere. But, no mangled tires or bent wheels. But, a lot of teeth rattling.
Played with the rain sensing wipers for the first time. Mixed results. Generally okay. But, sometimes too much wiping, sometimes too little. They don't work well in the snow. This thing goes through washer fluid pretty quickly. Went through over a gallon on this trip.
Got to test the emergency braking today. On the eastbound downhill side of the Allegheny tunnel on I70 traffic suddenly dropped from 75 MPH to about 40 MPH. Got the V70 slowed down in time, but I was worried about the Jeep behind me and the semi to the side. A little excitement, but avoided crunching sounds.
I've put on 5K miles since I bought it in Dec. So, an oil change will be coming up soon. The oil level hasn't budged a millimeter. The Sable would typically go through a quart in about 4K miles. Still not high consumption by any stretch.
