If you are using a zoom lens and you can focus manually then the problem could be a broken ribbon connector. These are flexible to cope with keeping a connection as the lens zooms in and out. They do break after a time depending on the usage. It is a simple repair for a camera shop.

Camera takes blurry pictures up close and sharper ones from afar. Camera will not focus on specific object either.

There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.

I have a Canon T3i. With an FD lens it records to the SD card, but when I put an EF lens on the camera it says there is no lens mounted, and it will not auto focus or record to the SD card, if I cover

I've not come across this situation before. Any FD lens will only work manually for aperture and focus with an FD to EF adapter. I'm not sure how you are mounting the FD lens. An EF lens should work auto on focus and aperture.

When I zoom in to take a picture I get it focused I hit the button and the picture shows up not zoomed?

How are you zooming in? If you are using a button to zoom, that is to check the focus: it's just enlarging the image for your convenience during focusing. In order to get a zoomed-in image when press the shutter button, you need to adjust the zoom ring manually on the lens barrel before taking the picture.

My canon T3i wont focus with either lense?

Most likely your camera is set to M manual focus. There's a little switch on the side of the camera that has S/C/M. The S is for single servo focus so it focusses on one subject and does not re-focus. The C is for continuous for action and movement and the camera continuously re-focusses, and the M is manual focus.

The other possibility is that both lenses are switched to Manual. There is a switch on the lens that says M/MA. Be sure it's on MA

Why won't my Canon Rebel t3i/600d focus

You could have set your camera in MF and on the lens is a switch, you could have set (accidentally) to MF.
If both are correct and you camera still does not focus automatically let me know.
