I have a 94 caprice that does this. Apparently it is either that speed only on the wiper motor that has a problem or the relay for the high speed may have failed and the motor may be ok. As it is a noncritical issue I haven't worried too much about it. If I find out more I will update this.

What is in windshield washer fluid?

Washerfluid is a solution of alcohol and water with a surfactant added for cleaning action. The alcohol is typically methyl alcohol or methanol with some brands utilizing isopropol alochol is some portion. The freeze point of the washerfluid is different in various states and Canadian provinces. The strong stuff in Canada doesnt freeze until about -40oC (-40oF) and is flammable. The main goal is to get the washerfluid onto the windshield to clean. If it makes it through the little tube then it has done its job. Summer bug wash is just a water and surfactant mix and has no freeze protection.

Is there anyone out there that can explain why the windshield of a car is always the first ( and often only) vehicle window to frost up and the last window that wants to unfrost?

The car is cold; icy cold. You are in the driver's seat, facing forward, and breathing, and your exhaled breath contains about 1% water vapor. Your breath hits the inside of the windshield. The vapor condenses on the cold windshield and freezes. If you were in the back seat or passenger seats facing sideways, those windows might also freeze. However, the windshield defroster should, within a couple of moments, clear up the windows. If you're referring to the outside windows, the windshield is tilted and water vapor can condense and freeze on it as the vapor falls. Your side windows are vertical, or nearly so, and not much water lands on it. Rear windows are tilted, but generally less than the windshield, so they don't frost up as badly.
