Alternator could be bad, or not connected which is unlikely. I would start by making sure the connection is good, there are no breaks in the wire, and that a substantial amount of voltage is coming from the alternator (~16V). Although, it is most likely in need of a new alternator.

I would take it to 2 or 3 or more different shops and ask for an estimate to fix it.. they will probably know what causes this condition. and probably will not charge you anything.. if they want to charge you for an estimate go somewhere else. you really do not want to trust them.. When you get several estimates and several of them tell you the same thing then its a matter of who do you trust??.. Check the shops out on Yelp.. actually sounds like it could be something simple like throttle presure adjustment.. But i cannot see your car from here.

If you hear the wiper motor running but the blades do not move then the linkage grommet that connects the two wiper arms to the motor needs to be replaced. If you don't hear the motor running it could be a loose connection, a bad switch, a blown fuse, a burned or shorted wire, or a bad motor. Only an electrical multimeter and patience will sort out an electrical issue.

This could be a lot of things. The first thing to check is the tires. Make sure they are not flat spotted from sitting too long .Then you need to check motor mounts and make sure they are not broken or loose. There are many things that could be causing this.

Follow the spark plug wires from the distributor cap, down to the block. This yahoo write up will help. If you have direct ignition (coil packs) then you will be looking for small blocks above each spark plug. Look for ignition coil packs at webites like oreillyauto.com for a visual of what you are looking for.
