windshield wiper fluid problem

i have a 95 gmc sierra Z71. the windshield fluid on the drivers side comes out fine but nothing comes out on the passenger side. i have tried to put a needle into the hole and i have yet to see any leaks. any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've run across this a couple times. the hose that connects the left side (drivers) to the right side runs through some small loops under the cowl. With old age, that line will collapse in those loops, and the washer pump doesn't generate enough pressure to push through. It's take a little time, but replacing the hose from the pump to the "squirter" all the way across should take care of this.
