things to look at

Check to make sure the hoses are not broken also check the nozzle for dirt or wax build up.Have someone spray and see were the water goes it should only come out of the nozzles.

help

a little bit of the fluid comes out on the windshield, but some drips on the floorboard and then it leaks to the outside somehow. Any ideas why it is leaking on floorboard and outside?

Are the sprayers on the hood or built into the wipers?

The wipers are on the hood. the hose is hooked to the sprayer at the firewall.

check it out

check all hoses for broken parts ,Lift hood and have someone spray and look for leaks pump either works or it does not work so motor is ok since you say it is weak.
Check the nozzles for junk like wax stick a small wire down them.

From what i can see , it looks clear. I cant get to it to see it close up. Once I take off the wiper arms, there is a piece of plastic that covers the nozzle. What could cause it to leak into the floorboard?
