I have an 1981 Camaro Z28 and the wipers work, however I can’t seem to get the mist to work. It appears everything is connected properly. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this issue?
I’m sure the car had been sitting for awhile before I got it, so I was thinking the tubing could be gunned up. I will try blowing the jets and hoses out.They do make a rebuild kit for the pump assy that is on the wiper motor, think it is just a rubber diaphragm and spring. But first check your screen on the end of the pick up tube in the resevoir and make sure it is clean. Are all the lines in good shape, not hard and brittle or real soft (kinks-collapsed tubing). Are your jets on the hood clean (blow out with compressed air or use a welding nozzle cleaner or very tiny piece of wire to unclog the outlets. I actually used clear tubing on my car and you can see the liquic being sucked up, but since I have the Detroit SPeed vari speed wiper motor I used an old European truck electric washer motor that I had laying around from when I worked for Iveco Trcuks back in 79-80.
