Why am I replacing brakes every year?

Ithought the problem was solved then the light came back on after a day driving. Also rough start and go after stopping at traffic lights

Transfer Cable look okay at
And when I pressed brake pedal try to unlock

i turn the key everything works inside lights radio etc. but wont turn the ingine on

My 2000 Mitsubishi gallant is having a lot of problems. Its making a loud noise, has trouble when accelerating, stutters on highway and sometimes idles at stops. The Air conditioning doesn't blow hard at all and it makes a louder noise when on. Whenever I start my car My radio/cd player wont play, no matter what I do(turning it off/0n, adjusting volume or switching stations) it still does nothing, anywhere from 5-45 minutes later it starts blasting music out of no where and then will randomly cut in and out.

I took it to O'reillys to test it and It came back with OBD2 codes P0170 and P0125.

What all is most likely wrong with my car?
What could be the cause?
What should I check for, what steps do I take?
What would be the cost for repairs or parts?

Thanks Bree

I replaced the cam sensor but it still stalls I don't know what the ohms are supposed to be and could the crank sensor be bad i need the ohms for it to please

It is like the car has short bursts of power loss. The radio is loud and you can't turn it down so it can't be used at all. The cutting out gets worse at higher speeds.

This is my first car so I don't really know where some things are. I think I had it running before but I'm not sure because nothing came out but hot air. I've ran the heater before and it works fine... Any ideas?

I had a mechanic friend of mine check a line to see if it's plugged and he told me it was clear. However, he also told me that the line to drain went somewhere under the dashboard and is probably backing up to the driver's side. He told me this would be an expensive repair but didn't know how much it would be. This happens when we run the A/C on trips 1/2 hour or longer. On a road trip we can easily have a half inch of water on the floor on the drivers side. Short trips cause the carpet to get a little wet.

I need help trying to figure out what needs to be fixed. because when they gave me the code it come up with three things that could be wrong. How do you change an APP?

not sure where to spray carberator cleaner at so im needing help .. not use to working on a car or any car period but trying to fix it !

2003 Mitsubishi Galant Question: service engine light is on. I had a oil change. I changed all spark plugs,wires & coil.

What causes this and how do I fix it?

what could be the problem?

while driving; my car stalled without warning, timing belt broke. We have changed the water pump,timing belt,idler belt, pulley's, coils,plugs,wires,cam shaft sensor,crankshaft sensor.checked all fuses it will crank but not start not getting any spark or fuel what can you suggest. would like photo of timing belt position if possible. thank you very much, Betty and Jimbo.

My engine stopped running today when going down the highway at 90mph, it gave no warning of any trouble. Temp was normal, full tank of gas, engine didn't sputter or give any signs of stalling. I went to give the car more gas and noticed that the engine had died so, I slowed down to 20mph and attempted a rolling start and it will turn over but will not start... Can someone please help me... Becausevof this problem, my girlfriend and I are stranded in the middle of Wyoming, over 500 miles from home.

When the fuse gets blowed the car shuts off and the shortage has gotten so bad that it completely blows burns the fuse when ever I try to turn it on now.

Maybe some kind of fuse or relay but the control head hvac speed settings knob doesn't light up like its not getting power or communication to run so I'm lost need help to diagnose problem farther thanks

Also temperature gauge isn't working too, so I can't see what is the real temperature of the engine.

Thank you for response .

I tried to change coolant sensor, but it seems to be ok. Cold: 2kiloohm; Warm(about 40-50 Celcius 120 Farenheit) 1.2kiloohm; Hot about 190 Farenheit 0.4 kiloohm.
Also I tried to make short circuit in harness of temperature coolant sensor while ignition is on- nothing too, gauge wasn't working.

Finally I forgot to connect temp. sensor and harness, and tried to start up the engine :D Then I saw that engine is running on low RPM, about 500 RPM and fan was working :)

Thank you for helping :)
