usually just tightening the nut will fix the problem. if the problem has been neglected for too long the hole in the wiper arm can become elongated and unuseable or the knurls on the drive can wear off. remove the arm, clean the area and reassemble using loc-tite thread locking compound, and clean the snow or ice before using the wipers.

Question Answered: 

test for battery voltage between the two outer wires on the distributor 3 pin plug with the key on and check there are no breaks in the middle wire to the eng module (pin 44?). if thats ok you need a distributor or (very unlikely) an eng module. lining up the oil pump drive and timing window is mandatory and may be a little hard. there is no "timing" ajustment like old cars. this is just a sensor window.

Question Answered: 

the sensor is located behind the engine just to the passenger side in a coolant pipe. there is a plastic clip that holds the sensor in its hole. if you release the pressure in a cool coolant system by opening the cap you will be able to replace the sensor and only loose a few ounces of coolant. replace the rubber o-ring and have a spare clip just in case.

turn the a/c on, does the fan come on then? this would rule out the radiator switch if it comes on. with a/c on and running check for power and ground at the fan wiring (brown is ground).
