Question about Cars & Trucks
2006 Honda accord ex... Wipers ... In stationary mode ( car sitting at a sroplight) the wipers are fine. Give the car gas and the wipers are on steroids banging at the up and down position like they are super angry at the car. What could be causing the burst of energy to the wipers?
Dont think you have much wrong here ,they work ok which is the main thing ,firstly check the battery voltage then the alternator voltage ,ie engine off check the voltage which should be about 12.6 to 12.9 volts then with the running at 2500 rpm and it shouldnt read more than 14.7 volts if its greater then change the alternator regulator if battery voltage is low to start with say 12v or a bit less and with engine running it comes up then renew the battery .But if its all working and the battery voltage isnt excessive then leave well alone and save your hard earnt cash and put it towards a new car

Sounds like the wiper arm has become disconnected. There may be a clip or bushing that has broken or fallen off. The wiper motor/arms etc are accessible by taking the cover off (usually plastic and possibly held in by screws or large plastic slots) that's at the base of the windshield. You may have to lift the hood for access and removal. Just take your time and don't force anything.
It's really simple after that. You turn your motor on and look for moving parts, that'll be the wiper motor. Either it's disconnected at the motor or it be disconnected on the arm. Usually one arm will move both wipers. If you're lucky, maybe it's just fallen off and you can find the clip or bushing and re-attach it. Otherwise, you may have to get a new part, which in this case would probably come from the dealer.
You may possibly also get it from a junkyard, but chances are if it's a small part, then they may not sell it to you. However some junk yards WILL sell you these small parts, and others may even let you pull the part yourself. If you could do this, you could also see how the part properly attaches.
If it's confusing how to re-attach the parts, then you may have to buy a Haynes or Chilton manual to see exactly how everything looks. Diagrams would be great. If there's no good pix in the manual, then try online. The best would be to see fully functional operating wipers on a similar car. Maybe find a buddy to take a peek at his after you practice on yours.
The part if broken should fit multiple years of your make of car.
Get this fixed soon because not only will it not pass inspection, but it is highly unsafe.

White smoke out of the exhaust is one indication that the head gasket is blown. Another is to start the car and check the oil on the dipstick. If it's frothy or looks like a milkshake, this is another indication of a blown head gasket. The milky appearance indicates that coolant is in your engine, caused by a bad head gasket. If none of these symptoms occur, then the problem lies elsewhere. Hope this answers your question and feel free to post back with any other concerns or questions. Thank you.
