    Well apparently the cold got to my washer tubes. Whenever i try to spray em, i get two streams of fluid 4 ft past the nose of the truck, sprayed one person at school who was walking in front of me. Didnt find out they had busted till then. Anyway, what all is in involved in changing them, how much do they cost, or could i just electrical tape em or something? Id rather change em, cuz itd suck to have a windhsield covered w/ mud and no way to clean it. Thanks. Oh and if there was more than one type, my washer things are on my wipers. Thanks again

    Hey Chris,
    There are small ruuber tubes that go up your wiper arms and connect to the hollow steel tubes. More than likley, it was one or both of the rubber tubes that gave up, probably from wear. A salvage yard would be the cheapest place to look. I would think the GM dealer would have some new tubes for fairly cheap. The tubes(from each arm) connect to each other under the hood at the top of the firewall. From there they go back to the washer fluid bottle.

    Also, if you'll run washer fluid and not straight water they won't freeze up etc.
