I tried searching, didnt fine out a lot. Is there a method to use to help me determine if its the line or the tank without removing the wheel and inner fender? The system works as it should when filled, but it does not stay in there long.

No wrecks or issues that would have caused it to crack- or freezing weather, so I'm hoping its a line or connection, but just where are those lines?

Last, if it is a crack, anyone had good luck with a particular sealer/epoxy?

Thanks, George in Tallahassee

All you need to do is jack the car and remove the panel under the engine. You'll have access to the washer fluid tank from there and lines.

No need to remove any wheel or liner.

I've been a member here for 5 years and I've never heard of that problem...

Btw, only need to jack the front passenger side.

Not sure what your problem might be but it is not necessarily the tank itself. On another vehicle, I had leaks and it ended up being the o-rings where the washer fluid pump attaches to the tank.
