So after another 6 inches of snow last night I left the house to drive to work. The snow had stopped early in the morning and the roads were just wet. After a few minutes on the highway I go to clean my windshield and no fluid comes out. :eek Now my wipers are just spreading salt across my windshield. :mad I figure I am out of fluid so I pull off at the next exit to pick up some. I pour it in and it only takes about a quarter of a gallon (takes close to 3/4's when empty). I try the pump again and still no fluid. I check the lines on the wiper and they are frozen solid. :cuss When is GM going to realize that exposed washer fluid lines DO NOT WORK in cold weather. :banghead I had the same problem with my Avalanche. The lines are exposed so they will not thaw from the engine heat. I only run pure washer fluid in and never add water into the tank.

Has anyone else had this problem?

:rant

Buy the good antifreeze fluid and it won't happen again. Here in Missouri the yellow colored fluid is the only one that doesn't freeze in the low teens. I don't know about any single digit weather yet. Good luck keeping it from happewning again. I was told that adding "Heat" to the washer fluid is even better, but I am not sure as to how much and if it would hurt the paint.
