Ok heres the deal, my washer line rotted away in a certain spot under the hood. So I went to Checkers' and bought some couplings and some rubber hose. The rubber hose I bought was a little bigger than the original. I just cut out the bad part of the hose, used 2 couplings to make the bigger hose work with the smaller original hose. No more leaks, but now my sprayers are not working right. What I mean is my passenger one works too well, and the driver one not enough. Its almost like a trickle. What did I do wrong? can the nozzles be aimed? or cleaned? whats the best way to clean them?


Thanks
Adam

Are you sure there are no leaks? Since the passenger side is the first sprayer in line it sounds to me like it's a pressure problem, which in turn would be cause by leaks. Check the couplings too.

If the larger hose is between the passenger nozzle and the driver nozzle, then that is the cause for the pressure drop.

I just had that happen on my Taurus. I went to a smaller generic repair shop, and they took care of me for $1.

Thanks guys for the input! I hope its not the hose. Is there any way to clean the sprayer nozzles? or even adjust them?

Thanks
Adam
