Why is my Jeep crying like a little beotch??

This is something new...haven't used the windshield washer in a couple weeks but today it started doing this again...the sprayer nozzle weeps and runs down the hood. The washer fluid tank is only half full. I pulled the hose loose but there was no fluid built up in there. Could it be due to the heat (80's here) and a bad sprayer valve??

Sounds like expansion in the lines, I had mine do it before on a different vehicle. Both or just one? But not around 80 and ESP at half. Check the cap to make sure it's not clogged.

just the driver side....doesn't seem to be any pressure built up in the tank....


just walked out and checked it now and its not seeping since I pulled the hose and put it back....guess I will see what happens later.

you think maybe I need to replace the head?

I had same problem, I drilled a small hole in the lid of the washer reservoir

Mine used to do it in winter when it was below freezing at night and then would get warmer during the day... I always just figured it was expanision pushing fluid out? It hasn't done it since I drilled the hole
