Subaru Forester QuestionsRefine by vehicle

I thi8nk I have tom cut off and replace axle etc. Your thoughts?
When I turn the heat up full in my car, the thermostat goes to hot, but when I turn the heat down lower the thermostat goes back to normal temp, whats causing that?
a little background; cruise acted up a couple months ago, cured on its own. Check engine light came on a couple weeks ago. Replaced the cat to clear that up. Was told the cruise stops working when the check engine light comes on and functions when that issue is cleared up. Well, it has not started working yet, and it has been quite long enough to reset if that were the cause. Common causes? Stalk switch on the column? Fuse is OK btw. Any insight?
Cruise has stopped working! Check engine light is also on, but I have a new Cat that should take care of that when I put it on.

The Rpm surges but the car doesn't go or will only go slowly 20-30 mph.

Radiator blew up and has a hole in it
how many sensors and much to replace o2 sensor
I've replaced the cat. conv. twice in the past year. Now, the car is not running, codes throwing for cat. conv, o2 sens, knock sens, lean running... By the time I figure out whats ruining the cat. converts I'll have spent WAY more than the value of that car. I'm a single mom, college student and drive ALOT! Time to trade in?
