Fill with washer fluid only

Don't add water to the windshield washer reservoir. It won't clean as well as washer fluid, and it may freeze in cold weather and damage the system. Don't try to run your windshield washer system once you suspect there's no more fluid in the tank, or you may damage the washer fluid pump.

Fix the washer fluid tank

Cracked washer-deicer fluid tanks are fairly common once a car is of a certain age. A good remedy—until you can buy a new tank or find one at the junkyard—is to insert a plastic freezer bag into the tank and fill it with the washer fluid.
