3. For the seventh time.
4. Since I started taking college courses.
5. She drove the car right into the garage.
6. When the garage door was closed.

Only # 5 is a correct sentence.
# 7 is a run-on sentence.
The other sentences are fragments and need additional words to make then correct.

Check this site for suggestions about correcting fragments and run-ons.
