got a jump started right up again i think i need a new battery

The problem has been pretty constant since I got the car two weeks ago . it starts after I drive it an hour or so . it doesn't always do it . sometimes I can fix the problem by shutting it off and starting rite back up . and when problem occurs if I try to accelerate it trys to die out .

When you turn on heat an air

I turn on all settings to run cold AC, and leave it on. Every once in a while it may blow cold air. Randomly. So i have it checked, all levels are correct. Mechanic says switch is broke, but is not sure if that's the whole problem. He said, it's blowing cold now, because I used screwdriver to switch it on. So I pay 200 to order and install switch, it still doesn't work. I'm on disability, so I have very limited funds. I'm afraid to give them any more money.

My 2000 and2 Q for crying but don't start the security light stay on I try to run the car with two keys the regional one and the spare
The battery is bad maybe that's the problem ?

Subaru Impreza Wrx turbo 2005 model. 100k miles.

1) replaced radiator 700 miles ago after leak detected and engine overheating 2) car running fine since then even in 99 degree heat. Temperature stable and normal. 3) today after driving about 100 miles I noticed engine heating up to redline 4) steam starts spewing from upper radiator hose near the side going into engine pretty intensely 5) I replace upper hose (big gaping hole detected in existing hose near the side that goes into engine) seems like it was not replaced with new radiator. 6) after replacing upper hose, no more steam. However engine temp gauge goes to redline after < 1 mile of driving but no heat coming from heater vents on full blast even after idling for 10 minutes. 7) coolant reservoir is full and not going down 8) engine does not feel hot (like it would if it was really overheating and at redline) 9) no more steam coming (I fixed the main leak) in the hose. I doubt there are other leaks but it was raining so hard to tell till I get to a shop.

Is the problem now that I need to pressurize the system? Does the internal thermostat need to be fixed? I thought they did it when the replaced the radiator in step 1 above. Could there randomly be a clog in the system ?

oil coming out by rear view mirror

I've replaced my battery and battery terminal. I've even tried both keys to start the car. But my car still doesn't start.

Upon stopping at the sign steering wheel stiffened and the gas pedal did not accelerate the vehicle. Set gear to park and push start button worked as usual and no lights or warnings lit up on dashboard not sire what the malfunction was caused by but not sure if it will happen again. 2017 journey 4cyl 7.22.2017
