One member here had a problem with the fluid line becoming detached. Maybe that is what happened to yours.

If all the fluid is still in the reservoir i'd have to say its the pump.

Never thought about that, but I still thing its something to do with the pump.

Or power is not getting to the pump. If you have a meter, you could check for voltage. I assume you already looked to be sure the wiring is intact.

Exactly, thats why I think it has something to do with the pump.

I dont even know where to start taking things off to expose it to check the pump. Where is it? I am not a novice, but time is an issue since I will have to get in and out since my wife drives it and we have conflicting schedules. And why the H#$l do the car makers cover these motors with all that plastic crap anyway? Seems like most of it would trap heat rather than release it. and I dont even think I want to see what kind of crap has been collecting under it.

pumps are usually in the resevoir. in the bottom. part of it sticks out the side. the rest is inside. its probably held in by a rubber seal.
