My wife and I are looking for assistance getting out car fixed. We are currently in a real tough spot with bills and rent, and our only means of getting money at the moment are delivery services(Uber, Lyft, Amazon Flex, and Spark). We are both looking for regular jobs but haven’t had any luck yet. The delivery apps have been keeping us from being completely in debt but just barely. Something is better than nothing, though, so we don’t complain about having to hustle until we find something stable. So our car is our life line right now. Bad part is, the car’s wear and tear has hastened in this time. We just had to buy better tires, get the oil changed, and fluids checked. We were told the back brakes and rotors needed to be replaced but we knew we couldn’t get that done anytime soon. We thought we would be alright for a little while. That was five weeks ago. We ended up getting bad gas a couple of weeks ago and problems have been popping up since. Check Engine light has come on, engine hesitation, and horrible gas mileage. We thought that after a few new fill-ups the bad gas would be gone and things would be better. No such luck. All the symptoms are still there, after six fill-ups, and now air is filling up in the tank. The car “farts” when we stick the pump nozzle in. From what we’ve read, that’s a EVAP problem. The other symptoms, from the bad gas, could possibly be solved by having the the Fuel Filter changed. We really need to get the car checked out by a professional for that side of things, though. The brakes have started to squeak now also.
So many problems have piled on at once and we are looking for just a little help. We are asking for funds to get just the back brakes and rotors changed and to get the car checked out for the other problems. We were told that the brakes and rotors would be $575 for parts and labor. It will cost another $135 to get her checked out. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Bless you and thank you.
