98 nissan 200sx floods out when trying to start,
Well First off all it is a fuel injected vehicle, so there could be plenty of problems.
- Your injectors could be leaking.
- your FPR could be set to high (fuel pressure regulator, should be around 40 give or take depending on altitude etc.)
- Your MAF could be going out (mass air flow sensor)
- TPS could be set wrong (throttle position sensor)
- ECU could of went bad (engine control unit)
Now this is problem your main problem.
During startup there is a thing called your throttle bypass valve (kinda like an electronic choke) If it is set wrong of faulty it would cause the car to flood while cranking, If the car runs then dies it is likely one of the others.
I would recommend getting a haynes chilton or mitchell manual if you are tech savy and check it out, also consider taking it to a autozone or other and having a obd2 code reader read the car

Where is the wiper amplifier
I don't know where this relay is however I can make a suggestion, go to ebay motors and order a service repair manual on cd these are great for locating electrical components they have illustrations and schematics that show a x-ray type blown up schematics that shows all electrical components and there locations respective to the body panels, dash, and unibody of the car, the cd service manuals cost between 15 and 20 bucks and have step by step repair procedures and technical bulletins,recalls etc. worth every cent. This should give you more than enough info for this problem.

My battery light indicator on dash board stays on
This is usually caused by a faulty alternator.
It stays on because the alternator is not generating sufficient voltage on the control winding to extinguish it.
Check battery terminal voltage while motor running with headlights on or blower fan running.
Terminal voltage should be approx 14.5V.
Ensure alternator and engine are properly connected to ground and the battery negative terminal.

Timing Belt replacement
I don't know specifically about this engine, but generally I would expect and experienced mechanic to do that job in 2-4 hours. On some engines I'm sure it would take longer.

Automatic transmissions can last a very long time, if properly cared for, and not overworked/overheated. Proper fluid/filter changes are needed!
If you are unsure, you should take the car to a mechanic, and have them inspect the transmission. If the seller rejects this idea, then I would hesitate the purchase of this vehicle.
