Peter, My '93 9K leaked washer fluid big-time for a while. First I sealed up the cracked tank (around the mounting posts that bolt to the car body) with plain old RTV silicone sealer. It leaked less, but still leaked. The cause is that the little plastic three-way check valves in the hoses fail, letting washer fluid drop out pretty quickly. I understand they commonly fail. Fluid will drip out both the bottom of the valve as well as the bottom of the washer pump. Take it apart and look for the obvious leaks. Dealer cost is obscene (several dollars) for such a little doohickey, but whatcha' gonna' do? Paul
