Hi everyone. I really don’t like asking for help but I could really use some. I have asked family and friends but unfortunately no one can help me currently. I have applied for loans but I keep getting denied because of my credit. I have tried doing odd jobs but the issue is I am trying to use my car for work and my children only. My car has a very bad oil leak, and it will cost around 600 from my trusted mechanic. I do work, but that only covers rent, food, bills, and necessities. I can hardly ever afford anything extra and this is a big bill that I am having a very difficult time trying to get the money for. The longer I put this off I feel like the issue will get worse and far more expensive. I am not sure what else to do. In the picture I have posted this is the amount of oil that comes out daily. I can’t afford to keep buying oil every day either. This is a very stressful situation i go through daily because I am praying my car doesn’t break on the way to work or while I have my kids. I work full time and I try to do anything extra if I have the ability to. Like I said before, I’ve tried really everything I can think of to get some assistance. If anyone can do anything to help it would be so much appreciated. I need about 600 dollars, this is the cheapest quote I got for the closest area that I live in. I have a mechanic that has been helping me for a while with my cars and I fully trust that he is giving me a good deal. He does amazing work and he has never over charged me or caused any other issues with my vehicles. My kids will be starting school soon, they are 6 and 5, and I need to be able to have a reliable vehicle in order to get them to school and me to work on time. My work has a pretty good attendance policy but the kicker is that we have time that we can use. I don’t have that much time left because of emergencies forcing me to leave work early. If you go over on your time you get terminated. That’s also another worry that I have is breaking down on my way to work and using all my time. I love my job and what I do, they were open and busy during covid 19 and I am so grateful for being employed through this pandemic. Please, if you can help I would be forever in your debt. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
