Windshield washer nozzle

(2004 Honda CR-V)
in Southington, OH on January 06, 2010
I have had problems during the winter months with my windshield washer nozzle freezing up....the reservoir is not empty but yet I can't get any washer fluid to come out. I hear the motor running when I try it but it just won't squirt anything out....this is very frustrating when going down a highway and I can't keep my windshield cleaned!!

my wife's 90 Camry had the same problem. Today, we disconnected the hoses from the nozzles under the hood and verified we were getting good pressure up to the nozzles. We put the hoses back on the nozzles and still no spray came out. We removed both nozzles from the hood and pushed a straight pin all the way back into the holes of the nozzles. The holes were gunked up with something because it took a little bit of force to get the pins to the back of the holes, but they work good as new now. Hope this helps

If you use plain water, this will happen. Make sure you are using the correct fluid, one that will not freeze.
