Are the double images different colors, such as red or blue or green? If so, the projection unit is "out of convergence, meaning the images are not superimposed on one another. That requires a convergence generator, also known as a video alignment generator.

Okay, you've tried a lot of things. The question is this: is the thread snapping (where abouts in the path), or is it shredding at the needle? Here are a few more:

Remove the top thread, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning.
Try different thread--perhaps a polyester thread like Isacord or Aurafil. (AVOID old or bargain bin thread.)
Try a different kind of needle (brand new needle!)--like a top-stitch, microtex, or embroidery. The top stitch needle has a larger scarf that will better protect the thread if shredding is the issue. (I use a special bobbin case that I've increased the tension for Isacord thread and I use the same thread in top and bobbin.) I also decrease the top tension a tad so the bobbin thread will not pull to the top. You may need to install brand-new needles several times on one quilt when they get dull.
Usually an 80 or 90 needle will work for FMQ through a fabric/batting sandwich.
Check that the needle's eye is the appropriate size for the thread (also a cause of shredding thread).
Set the upper tension at the midway point perhaps a bit looser for FMQ (this tension will probably need to be tweaked for your particular machine due to wear and age).
Use an FMQ foot and drop the feed dogs. A Supreme Slider (avlb on the internet) is very helpful in helping move the quilt while doing FMQ.
Work at a moderate but steady pace. I find a faster speed while FMQ gets me into trouble...like spots I can't get out of, overlapping stitches, or outside the quilt edge.

FWIW, I still get some skipped stitches with FMQ. Usually, it happens when I move the fabric too fast, especially around a curve. I have a tendency of speeding up while going around a curve that will cause skipped stitches or eyelashing.

I'm also wondering if there is something to do with the fabric and/or batting you are using...like is it Batik? Batik is very tightly woven and presents some particular challenges. The type of batting could be more dense, making it harder for the needle to penetrate the sandwich. Also, pulling or stretching the fabric can cause skipped stitches.

Do you have a meter that has any ohms ranges? If not, buy one! You can get one for under $10 a Harbor Freight Tools, complete with test leads and battery! Pull the fuses out one at a time, and measure continuity through the fuse. They should all be close to zero ohms, but any that measure "open" are bad. Don't mix up the fuse positions!

Unfortunately, that is not even a complete sentence or thought. Perhaps it is a goal.

It sounds like your car has an intermittent open current feed problem. Has there been any electrical/component repair or replacement recently? If so, that would be a starting point for diagnosis. Sounds like an ignition switch type problem. If you had an intermittent battery connection, the car would continue to run from the alternator output, but would not cause the warning lights to go through their initial "bulb check" sequence. But if "on" voltage is lost at the ignition switch, or that circuit, it would.

Have you checked your fuel injectors? They should be pulsing, not streaming. They could be stuck open or full of dirt. Also your fuel pressure regulator could be providing too much pressure. Is the wiring to each injector correct?

Inspect the cable to the throttle control mechanism under the hood? All all the cables in their proper tracks? Are any cables wrapped the wrong direction, or out of the in-line track?

Check the lid-closed switch. Once filled with water, most machines will not agitate or spin unless the lid is closed.
