    WK Frozen Window Washers

    Any body have a solution to this? Ohio DOT uses so much salt and urea, highway driving is damn tough when your windows are whited out.
    If this is addressed somewhere let me know, I just haven't found it. Thinking of running a separate tube for the washer fluid and routing with the cabin heater hoses, but not sure if my washer reservoir is frozen too. I changed the fluid out to a low temp version, but that didn't help.
    My previous WK and WJs didn't seem to have this problem as I recall.

    A lot of times if you take it to a place they dilute the fluid too much. I don't dilute and that usually works for me.

    Well geeze! I guess I'm just out of touch! Everybody in my office says they use Russian Vodka (-40* F). I guess if you slide off in a ditch, you can party till AAA shows up! One guy uses EverClear for super low temp.
    Hell I was trying for an engineering solution.

    Millennials, always have a different path, although I must admit, I can get into this! My wife may wonder where the Stolli's went!

    I'm thinking separate pump and tube to the cabin! Maybe more than one container! Maybe I won't give a shit if my windows are clean or not!

    I've always used the -40 stuff they sell at service stations. Only one time, I had an issue on a Toyota where a line near the wheel well froze up. It was -25f out and worked fine when I first started it, but when I was driving, it froze up. I think the windchill while driving put it over the edge.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
