Pathfinder 6-cyl

Driving down interstate 95 and a truck sent bud in the air, went to clean windshield and ran out of cleaner. Just had vehicle serviced. Windshield wiper fluid was filled that morning at jiffylube. Windshield fluid light came on. Stopped and manually cleaned windshield. Noticed that windshield fluid tank was empty and refilled. Fluid was leaking out. Returned home and removed fender shield to look at tank. Fluid leaking out of bottom of tank seal. To this day we still operate without fluid due to cost to repair. This only happened when the weather is very warm as it is most of the year in savannah.
