Windshield washer keeps freezing on 2002 Ford WindStar: No engine codes


How do you keep the windshield washer fluid from not freezing in the windshield? I have to stop my minivan every 20 minutes to clear the blades of ice and it is very frustrating. Help!

ATS Advisor:

Here in Canada, we use a winter anti-freeze windshield washer fluid which does not freeze in your blades. This fluid should be available in most local automotive parts store. Also, replace your windshield washer blades with winter type blades which are coated with rubber and helps prevent the blades in forming ice between the blades and the windshield. Finally, make sure your windshield defroster is turn on to heat up your windshield while your engine is running.

ATS Tip:

The air vents to your windshield defroster must a good flow. Any restriction will prevent heated air from going to the windshield. For proper servicing of the windshield washer system, contact ATS.
