So I noticed the other day the Escape had a puddle under her, near the front. Asked the wife what she thought (I hadn't driven her in over a week myself); being that's it's 112 lately, she assumed it was AC condensation; I looked at it, it wasn't yellow (coolant/MECS fluid) looked like water, didn't have an odor, so OK, maybe it is...
Go to wash the windshield next day, and it barely squits out... OK I just filled up a few weeks ago, she never uses the washers so, humm... finally put 1 + 1 togather, and fill the washer tank to be sure; and sure enough it starts dripping, a steady drip; just short of a stream.
So, Tank, or hose(es)?? Any easy way to figure out? Looks like the tank is hidden pretty well & will probably be a bear to replace; but then so is the pump/hoses... I got out the creeper, light & mirror; but couldn't see anything obvious. And as usual ext war. just exp 2 months ago (assuming it would have covered it anyway)
