hi i need to find an electronic valve. It's gotta be a small y-pipe for going in a windshield washer fluid line. I'll give size later (maybe 5/32") , but is there such a thing? if so where could i find it, thanks!.

If you want strictly on/off control then you might consider a solenoid valve. ASCO, among many others, makes them. I think I saw one advertized in Jameco - low cost, low pressure capability but maybe it's good enough.

Note that some solenoid valves require a minimum differential to close tightly.

If on/off isn't what you want then you need to look at other kinds of valves.

The type of fluid/gas and temperature that you are using affects your choice of valves. But for water/air, you can usually find some fairly inexpensive valves surplus. Otherwise SMC is a good manufacturer.
