I did search on this and did not see anything, so if it has been discussed before my apologies.

My 86gt used to do this same thing, when driving aggressively
around turns (mostly right turns) my windshield washer lets out some fluid. I never had this in an 86se i used to own. Now I see it in the new 88gt I have so I am assuming that it a common problem. Is there a cure?

My 86 also does it.
It is the remaining fluid in the lines that comes out because of centrifugal force.
Irritating, but normal.

Yes, cause when check valve is good.

Funny, when I was getting ready to go to the 30th, I realized PO had put a "fix" on my washer resevoir. I had noticed the blue stain around the cap, but never saw any liquid there. I happened to notice that a cap (like the ones on a tube of caulk) had been RTV'd to the underside of my resevoir cap. over the vent hole. The caulk tube cap had a vent hole in the side making it difficult for any liquid to splash out of the top.

At Run For The Hills, when the washer squirts in a sharp curve is how you know you're having fun. When you squirt, you know you've had too much fun
