Sounds like a lifter problem, but it might be an exhaust leak around the front part of the car. Also 5W-20 sounds like it might be too thin. What does the manual recommend for the oil. Good luck!

Check the wiper switch and or wiring up to the wiper relay. Sounds like the relay is being energized all the time. If so the new relay will do the same thing.
