About the Windshield wiper intermittent problem: I have a 1994, same problem when I got it. I pulled apart the little motor [that mounts under the hood on the back wall, about middle of cab, a challenge to get at, but worked!] and applied clean and more grease inside the housing...it stopped the problem! [Rated all 4's just because - but I luv my 1994 4cyl S-10!]
windshield +wipers stopped working in intermediate but work on continual mode fast. when turn off do not stop in park position. Is there more than one fuse for wipers and is so where?
