Washer fluid during hard cornering
Something new this morning...
I was coming around a 270 degree, uphill cloverleaf onramp. There isn't much room to merge with 70 MPH traffic at the top, so I was using that as an excuse to hit it pretty hard - as hard as you can on BFG AT's, that is. Anyway, I see water on the windshield near the end of the ramp and then I notice that it is actually windshield washer fluid running out of the driver side spray nozzle at about 1/4 the normal pump-driven rate. Nothing was coming from the passenger side nozzle.
All I can figure is the G-force in the right hand turn was pushing fluid to the left and the 270 degree turn was long enough for it to travel to the exit point at the driver side nozzle. Yes, I refilled the reservoir a couple of days ago, so I'm sure that the level was near the top.
I don't remember hearing of this before. Anybody else ever see that happen?
