There is a strainer/filter and the grommet fits over the inlet of the pump and that grommet assembly sits in the opening of the tank. Are you sure you are installing correctly?
Yes, the old pump pushes water out of the jets just fine. The problem is when I installed both new pumps - exactly the way the old pump was, grommet included
- and nothing comes out of the jets. Both new and old motors are identical in appearance. I just lived through this winter with the old motor that leaks a gallon of wiper fluid in a couple days.

When i warms, I'll put the last new motor I purchased and see if there are still leaks, maybe the tank is leaking. the weather has just been too bad to do this yet.
