yeah sump is seeping down near the alternator a bit, and think auto is leaking not 100% sure, no puddles when i park it etc, but brakes are down to their limit, rotors have scratches on them and takes forever to slow down, scared they are starting to warp, and defiantly need a alignment down front right innee tread is gone and have alot of tyre vibration whine noise inside the car.

and have no $$$ to get it fix asap with bills, rent, kids birthdays, food etc

oh wow mate becareful hey. hate to see anything happen to you and your family.
when I pulled off my front pads on the RHS front half the stuff on the pad had broken away.
that gave me a bit of a shock never seen that kind of thing happen before. To bad your not closer I have 4 wheels and tyers here you could have to get you out of trouble. They have around 50% tread left on them :(

oh sorry mate forgot to tell you found some EF Fairmont rims in immaculate condition with 80% tyres for $300 down here, so getting them next Friday, thanks for the offer though man!

also getting for brakes down Thursday next week, $145 for both rotors machined, new pads, wheel bearings regressed and new fluid I believe which I thought was a good price.

now to find a wheel alignment price.

ahh sent you a PM

i can help with the brakes ,

my dad has been working mechanical for over 40 years so he could watch over but he trusts me. Ive done countless EA-EL bearings and rotors etc the secret is getting the correct tightness on the bearing and putting that split pin back in
