2000 Outback wagon, 106k miles. The windshield wipers function, but usually go too far either direction, but not always. What determines how far the wipers move, do i need a new wiper motor?

The problem you are describing is most likely the wiper transmission, the bushings get worn out and allow the wiper arms to move in excess.

Thanks, I'll take a look at that, if that is correct would I need the entire wiper motor assembly or just the linkage?

You will need to replace " wiper transmission, it comes with new arms and bushings(complete) motor should be ok.
