      I’d check around with friends to see if they could do it or if a friend could do it. At the very least, see if that friend would let you buy parts and you could pay them inexpensive labor, or make monthly payments as a favor to you.

      Or, barter services, if there is something they can do for you.

      Subject: : fix a car on a budget

      One subject that affects all of us is car repair on a budget. I have a
      disabled husband and daughter and rely on our car for dr appointments.
      Today it is not running and I need advice on how to do cost effective
      repairs. Here is what happened, the other day it ran fine, then we
      noticed it was not wanting to go uphill very much.

      Oil pressure, all
      fluid levels,etc were good. It started to backfire and shirt hard (its
      automatic). The next day my husband changed plugs and when he started
      it up the oil pressure was 0, but it was ok the day before.

      It back
      fired. Today we went to take him to the dr and it would not go over
      20mph, backfired, but all fluid levels and oil pressure was good. It is
      a 1982 GMC 3/4 ton Vandura conversion van, automatic, 305 and ran
      wonderful until this point.

      We can’t afford another right now so I need
      to know the most cost effective way to fix this. Any ideas?
