If the cylinder turns, it is a plastic clip inside the door that holds the linkage that has broke. Dealers don't sell them and it is hit and miss at parts stores. If the cylinder doesn't turn, replace it.

Check your fuses. Your 3 problems all need a constant, when the switch is off, 12 volts. They are all probably on the same fuse.

I would expect a "check engine" light and a code if your O2 sensor was bad. You checked codes, right?

I ran into this once when I changed a 2000 engine with a 2001 engine. The crankshaft gear for the timing belt was different. One had 2 ears for the crank angle sensor and one had 4. To check if this is the problem, pull all 4 sparkplugs, hook them to your plug wires, turn the engine over and see if you only have spark to 2 cylinders. If that's what you find then you will need to replace the crankshaft timing belt gear.
If that's not it, and you have spark to all 4 cyls., check your fuses. It could be a fuel pump fuse or ECM or an number of other fuses.
Good luck

Here is an answer from your self.
Self. " Yes, likely you will be needing new front window motors."
Unfortunately, with all things being made by computer today, the extra measure of quality has been removed to accommodate cost.
When you take apart the doors to install the motors, be sure the regulators are in good shape for the next 10 year expected life.
God bless your efforts.

Same thing happened to 2002 Suburban and it turned out to be the cables which are connected the window regulator (motor), assuming you have power windows. You will need to remove the panel on the passenger side door to determine the cause. It could be one of three things, the cables, the regulator, or a broken fuse or wire stopping the electrical current...this is pretty rare especially if this is the only window which is not operating.

Even with intact boots, the problem is still most likely in the CV joint. Another possibility is depending on the type of clunk sound, the strut mount can also cause noise upon turning.

The only way you can get rid of the leak is to restore the closing mechanism to proper operation or seal off the entire top of car.

Your call.
