the problem is in the mechanics of the wiper at the firewall (inside undr the vents) the connector to the wiper arm has come loose from the controlling arm (laymen's terms) you'll need to access the workings and re-connect the arm..the access panel is normally held on with a few screws.....make sure the repair will stay connected and is not worn out.. good luck to you....it is about an hour fix...

The issue could be something as simple as a wheel speed sensor not registering. The computer should have a code stored to tell you what the issue is. The reason it works fine when you first start the engine is the ABS and Traction system do a self check each time the engine is started. As long as everything passes it gives the green light and the system is active. When the system detects an error after you start moving it gets disabled and this effects other systems. You need to find and repair the error and all should be good.

Is the check engine light on? If it is check to see if a local parts store offers free code reading. If its a misfire code it should be po001 through 004. This is telling you cylinder 1 is 001 ect. Then you can change the parts on the correct cylinder.

Usually the sign of a bad fuel pump check valve that allows fuel pressure to bleed off over night. Try this in the morning. Turn the key to ON for 2-secs, then OFF. Repeat 3 times. Then try to start. If it starts right up, you need a new fuel pump. By turning the key on and off you're filling the fuel lines and building pressure that you lost overnight.

The front of engine is usually where the serpentine belt is located. The side of the engine toward the front of vehicle is different. I'm not trying to split hairs, Just trying to understand? Is it coming out in the area of the belt?
When you had it on the ramps, was the engine running? One thought is too much crankcase pressure?
There is, the oil filter could leak, oil pan gasket, head gasket. Is there oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil? It's tough to find a leak if it isn't leaking when you check it.

It can be faulty wiper motor or blown wiper control fuse.

Do you hear any kind of noise when you starter the wiper function. If yes then fuse is ok, but issue is wiper motor.

If no movement at all and no noise then its blown fuse or shorted/loose wiper control wiring: -----

When you say, hard start, are you saying it cranks good but won't start? If so, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Crank the starter intermittently, so it doesn't overheat.
Any applicable trouble codes?
As far as you dash lites, you may have to check ignition switch.

Could be crank shaft sensor.

Highly doubtful that a pump will fix a 0 oil pressure problem. This sounds more like worn bearings. Have a shop do a pressurized oil leakdown test before replacing the oil pump. If the bearings pass the test, then try a pump.
