car repairs needed, free car repair ministries: I am a single mother of a child who is disabled and receives

I am a single mother of a minor child who is disabled and receives SSI. I just found out that our car (that we received from a charity) needs a rear bearing replaced. The rear bearing is an essential part of the suspension and if not fixed can lead to a major accident with the entire wheel breaking off the vehicle. I have priced it with a lot of mechanics and the census is that it cost $400 plus. We do not have that money, which means we will be letting the car just sit in the driveway. Also means I will need to find another means of transportation to her weekly doctors appointments. I have even researched trying to buy the part myself & trying to do the repairs DIY, however it looks as if I will need tools that are expensive (jack, etc...). I am at a loss as what to do. I would be more than willing to do the repairs myself with the supervision of a mechanic. I live in the South Bay Area in California.

FINANCIAL HELP WITH HOME MORTGAGE, REPAIRS, EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE, BILL PAYOFFS, FREE MONEY TO FIX UP HOME AND CAR

My car, a 2004 Ford Focus, lost its clutch as I headed home from the doctor a couple of days ago. Luckily I had towing insurance and was towed off the freeway to a car repair service. I cannot pay the bill. I am a senior 67 yrs old living on a Soc Sec income. I am already behind on my rent and other mandatory expenses. I live in a town miles away from my family and medical assistance. It is imperative to have a car since no one, even family members want to help. Can you help me?

FINANCIAL HELP WITH HOME MORTGAGE, REPAIRS, EDUCATIONAL ASSISTANCE, BILL PAYOFFS, FREE MONEY TO FIX UP HOME AND CAR

I am a 63yr.woman who is retired but wants to work, which i could do if my car was running. It needs a new fuel pump and a good person to install. I have been tricked by several people who said they had replaced part, to the tune of 1300.00 each time. No longer have the funds to do this. Please help as i don't know what else to do. Thank you

I have a 1993 ford ranger that didn't pass e-vap test. Need help paying to have it fixed. I am 62 years old and on disability. Guessing it will cost around $600.00 to repair it. It's our only form of transformation.

Can't afford auto repairs!

Can't afford auto repairs! I'm a single mom who is already struggling every month and my car now needs repairs that cost $850. I need a car to get to work and take care of my son. I am hoping there are some angels out there who can help me. I do without many things to get by. I do work full time but my checks are stretched to max just taking care of my son and myself. Seems all I've had this past year is one bad thing after another and hope that some good can come my way for a change. I'm not one to ask for help but there is no other options now. Without transpotation I will lose my job then everything else which terrifies me. Any amount will be appreciated or information to get aid in CA.

My husband has been out of work for a year now and due to illness I cannot work. We have 3 young boys and our middle son is bipolar. we live in a very rural area and desperately need a car to get us to doctor appointments and for my husband to be able to find a job. we purchased a car with our tax returns after the one we had access to died. the car we bought lasted one week before the engine blew. i cant get to my specialist and my middle child cannot get his meds adjusted because i cannot get him to tests his psychiatrist wants. we havent received anything from unemployment and because we are in such a rural area my husband cannot get a job without a way to get there. i am at the end of my rope and dont know what else to do.

Repairs on vehicle: I'm currently unemployed and living day by day. I keep applying for jobs but nothing so

I'm currently unemployed and living day by day. I keep applying for jobs but nothing so far. I live near Denver and now my car failed the test for re -registration. The mechanic says I need to replace the catalytic convertors on my Subaru. ( I never knew there was a front and back convertor on the car) I need to come up with $900.00 to fix the car. If I can't I won't have car to look for a job. What makes it worse is that in Denver if the car fails the test you can't resell it within a 150 miles and I have no money to get another that will pass. The rent is due soon and I don't know where I'll get that. Any help or suggestions. I know God will provide and is in control.
