Wiper fluid not spraying strongly

When I pull the lever to spray wiper fluid on my windshield, it sprays normally for about a second or two, and then it dies down and only reaches the bottom of the windshield. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Thank you

I have to ask.

Is the tank full?

Is this while parked?

Completely random guess, but I would be on the hunt for a hole/crack somewhere in the line or a loose connection which could be allowing air in. First thing that came to mind is when drinking from a cracked straw, which is almost impossible.

Tank mounted pump I believe. If the rear has lost its prime that could grab some pressure once the check opens... Use the rear washer until no air and see what happens. If topless I'm not sure how to coax it into giving up the juice...

dealt with this last weekend. behind the reservoir is the fuse/pump pickup that sends the fluid. it will develop a good layer of sludge. wipe/hose it off and reinstall......... voila!
