    Did you get a new motor or a used motor? Wipers on a dry windshield will
    often drag and operate slow, but they shouldn't on a wet windshield. Don't
    bother with the fuse - it's either good or it's not and if it's not, the
    wipers won't work at all.

    It's possible the linkage is binding, or I suppose it's also possible that
    your alternator isn't working properly, causing your system voltage to be

  5. Have you checked the bearings where the wiper arms attach. If either or
    both is dry (not uncommon), they will slow down the wiper action. Work
    some oil into them (real oil, not WD-40 or another light spray lube) and
    you should see a big improvement.

    I have had this happen a few times myself. Just lubricate the arms where
    they bolt with the car and everything will be fine. I do mine once a month
    so that it wont happen again

    I took it a part today and the linkage is very rusty. i cant hardly
    move the right wiper, i guess i should get new linkage. thanks.

  8. That would be the best thing to do, but as as an expedient, you can work
    some oil into the bearing to free it up. That will keep you going until
    you get your new parts.
