Why Is the Windshield Washer Pump & Reservoir Important?

The washer pump and reservoir are very important components to your vehicle's design. This system helps keep you safe during inclement weather by pumping washing fluid onto your vehicle's windshield. With the assistance of windshield washing fluid, the wiper blades can keep your view free from obstructions and clear from dust and dirt. The windshield washer reservoir holds all the liquid used to clean your windshield and is located under your vehicle's hood.

Your windshield washer fluid reservoir can go years without issues or damage as long as it is seldom left empty. If the pump's motor is turned on without fluid or with frozen liquid inside, it could cause damage and appear brittle, cracked or leaking. Once the problem is diagnosed, replacing your washer pump and reservoir is easier than you think. You can complete this DIY repair in your home garage or at your local NAPA Auto Care Center where our experts can ensure professional treatment.

Replacement Windshield Washer Fluid Reservoirs

The typical replacement windshield washer fluid reservoir comes engineered using automobile-grade plastic designed to withstand extreme engine heat, pressure, antifreeze and ethanol deterioration, as well as intense vibrations along the road. Although each vehicle may require a specific reservoir, any part purchased from The NAPA Network is a direct replacement that functions like the original equipment. A straightforward install will likely include the reservoir and its washer fluid cap.

A windshield washer reservoir kit is a convenient, all-in-one option that includes a pump, reservoir, wiring, screens and a helpful instruction manual. Other kit contents will vary; you need to verify which type of reservoir you need because some are universal. In contrast, others are pressurized or non-pressurized depending on your vehicle's make and model.

Keep in mind that investing in a washer fluid that includes antifreeze is critical during the cold winter months. If the wrong solution is used and temperatures drop, the fluid could expand and cause damage that will block the functionality when you need it most. The Prestone De-Icer / Winter Washer Fluid - 1 gal; -27° Protection melts ice fast and is precisely engineered to improve winter driving conditions and wipe away road salt and grime, as well as leave a streak-free, glare-free finish.

Windshield Washer Pump Replacement

If your windshield washer pump is not transferring washer fluid from the reservoir to the washer nozzle, it is possibly time to shop for replacement parts. As time passes, your OEM pump, found at the bottom of a reservoir, might seize up and stop working, especially if no washer fluid is present due to a reservoir leak. Temperature sensors are used to monitor the fluid levels in your reservoir to alert you when it's getting low. If your windshield is not getting clean, consider inspecting to see what reservoir and windshield washer pump replacement parts you may need.

The washer pump sends the window washing fluid through spray nozzles onto your windshield. The washer fluid pump includes electrical components that might eventually need repair. The washer pump repair kit is an economical option that functions as an essential replacement part for keeping your windshield clear and your vision of the road unobstructed. The kit's equipment restores windshield pumps to their original operation. It contains a valve, valve seal, one straight connector, angled connector, connector seal and all the hardware needed to install.

Universal washer pumps ensure the safety features of your vehicle are in good condition and can make replacing your malfunctioning unit a breeze. The universal pump replaces your OEM washer pump, and you can use it on nearly any domestic or imported vehicle. Additionally, don't forget to grab a windshield washer fluid heater kit, which quickly melts ice, frost and snow from your windshield for your convenience and is safe to use on all windshields.
