comment 2005 pacifica rear window shatters
Somehow the window frame could be tweaked too. You don't have to be in an accident to bend stuff, I shifted my alignment last year in a stiff snow bank.

Could you update your post to include problems you are still having after replacing the O2 sensor?

comment How do I find the correct pins in a CAN-BUS connector?
Update: So, I blew up my first board by just plugging it into some wires. I now have a new board and will test my code on my car's system which is well documented.

I'd consider a stronger battery then, try asking the parts store about return policies just in case.

comment breaking in (running in) a very small engine
Keep in mind that break-in at one position gives you less drive-ability, but sounds like you'll be pegged the whole time anyways. Try to roll on and off the throttle and let the engine decelerate, but use high rpms if that's what it wants. You aren't going to get 100K mi. out of it anyways :)

comment Greater warranty or lower miles?
You'll never paint it, let's be real. I believe that the warranty is a better value, but if you're like me and this car will be an extension of self, get the one you like more...

comment Car starts fine cold or warm, but has trouble inbetween
I agree with the approach, but I think you can eliminate the check valve. The engine would leak more fuel after cooling than it would after a brief stop. This could also be applied to the injectors, but somewhat not.

comment 2004 Chevy Malibu jerks when deceleration is followed by acceleration between 25-40 mph
Does your car have a torque lockout? If so your car could be shifting in odd ways and the result is jerky shifts.
