    If it is a older jag the wipers probably run off vacume so as it warms up the vacume gets better you may have a vacume leak.

Can you getting into some place above 32f or 0c? If so do. Let it warm up and see if it helps. The grease maybe to thick in the transmission of the wipers two there could be ice or snow packed around the unit.

I have a 1995 Mercedes C280 and the windshield wiper works fine for about 10 minutes and then it goes very slow as if it is hanging up in the middle of the wipe of the windshield? What do I do to fix it?

You need to remove the cover at the base of the blade and oil or grease the mecanism that makes the wiper move up and down and it moves across the windshield. It is dried out and sticking.
