Washer fluid/tank question

Does anyone know how much volume the washer tank holds?
And does the car have a low washer fluid light?

Its in the owners manual which can be downloaded at this site.

It's amazing how much reading I accomplished while in the crapper:party0048:

I looked in the owners maual that came with the car and it doesn't say anything about that (just oil, tranny, rear end etc fluid types and volumes). I didn't see anything about low washer fluid warning, it just shows what the washer symbol looks like.

yes, you are right. The manual doesn't specify windshield washer fluid capacity.

You could empty it out and then start filling it with a gallon jug to see how much it would hold.

I don't remember any my cars holding more than a gallon of washer fluid when the reservoir was empty.

I ask this because I want to use it for a Methanol reservior, and they sell a larger container, I just figured this one has to be a gallon or more...and instead of buying their low meth indicator, if the stock tank has a level indicator, then when(if) if says low washer fluid, I'd know I was almost out of methanol.

I don't see an actual measurement called out. If you really want to know, I'd empty the fluid currently in your washer fluid tank and then put a gallon of whatever in it. If that doesn't fill it up (which I bet it will) then add measured amounts until it is full. A pain in the a$$ way to do it but it's not in the manual and there's nothing on the reservoir itself.
