windshield washer sprayer...

On my truck, after a couple days (more noticeable 3+ days) of not using my washer sprayer... it takes at least 5 seconds sometimes 10 seconds before water is sprayed out... like the fluid runs back into the reservoir. is this normal?

Yeah I've noticed that but also noticed on a variety of different vehicles. Especially if the weather is hotter I suspect that some of it may drain or evaporate. I suppose you can try putting in a check valve to see if that makes it any better but I don't think the few "dry swipes" of the wiper blades, until the sprayers start working, are really that damaging. The hoses under the hood are easily accessible to put in a braid fitting style check valve (probably the ball style).

VIN details are accurate for the linked truck only, YMMV.

Is it full to brim? Might need to run it for 10-20 seconds to get air bubbles out. Mine works great!

X2 If you figure it out, post your fix.

On the C&C trucks, we have to replace the washer tuning and nozzles about once a year due to the underhood heat causing the little plastic "tee's" to dry out and crack/break..
Shoulda knows it was going to be a common issue when the dealership had all the parts in stock to fix it!!

Has to do with evaporation of fluid from the lines from the heat under the hood. Ford knows about the issue but at this time it is normal and the washers work as they should when fluid returns to the lines.

Mine doesn't do that. I used mine today and haven't for maybe 3 weeks. Only had to wait like 2 seconds.
