i have two windshield washer fluid pumps both for the front windshild. the resistance for the one that came with the car is 7.3 ohms and the other one i baught offline is 2.5ohms. they both sounds like they work but i am getting no pressure to spray the fluid out of the jet sprayers. i live in pa could the lines freeze? the washer has de-icer in it and its not frozen in th,e resivueor. not sure what the heck is going on here. any ideas?

In shop practice fine detail to a difference of a few ohms does not matter.

The usual way to test is an ohmeter... have continuity(irregardless of resistance) it should work. no continuity=open circuit=no good.

In your case, either one will work equally well.

Cheers.

follow the washer line and see if there is a connector around the hood area. disconnect and run the washers... check to see if washer fluid shoots out.

washer motors working? yes...? no...? if no, check fuses.

washer motors working but no washer fluid shooting out? = clogged line

washer fluid shooting out of the disconnected hose but not through the nozzles = clogged nozzles.

** clogged nozzles u can clean out with fine wire
