WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID

Check the washer fluid whenever you stop for fuel. The reservoir is highlighted with a symbol.


If the level is low, add enough fluid to fill the reservoir. In very cold weather, do not fill the reservoir all the way.

Only use a washer fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to Lubricant specifications in this chapter.

State or local regulations on volatile organic compounds may restrict the use of methanol, a common windshield washer antifreeze additive.

Washer fluids containing non-methanol antifreeze agents should be used only if they provide cold weather protection without damaging the vehicle's paint finish, wiper blades or washer system.

If you operate your vehicle in temperatures below 4.5º C (40º


If you operate your vehicle in temperatures below 4.5º C (40º F), use washer fluid with antifreeze protection. Failure to use washer fluid with antifreeze protection in cold weather could result in impaired windshield vision and increase the risk of injury or accident.

Note: Do not put washer fluid in the engine coolant reservoir. Washer fluid placed in the cooling system may harm engine and cooling system components.
