u pull and pay denver
I own a 2009 Mercury Mountaineer with 20,000 miles and I bought it new. It was making a noise so I took it back to the dealership. They said the fourth cylinder is not getting any compression and told me I had to get a brand new engine. I can't understand why it needs a new engine so soon? The warranty ran out on it and the price they are asking to replace engine is way more than I can afford! Tom, please help me!
Be realistic when assessing the value of a classic car. You might be able to get a vintage vehicle for just a few hundred of dollars. But is it really possible to put it back to life? Would there still be some replacement parts available for it at the biggest lkq price list dealer shop in town? If you aren't sure, better be. You can browse the internet for car parts to know if the ones you need are still in stock and are shipping. Otherwise, you might have to turn your head around and look for another vintage to save.
Obviously you will need some bottles and there are lots of places to get these. Most junk yards will carry a range of old beer bottles that you can purchase. I typically don't pay more than a few dollars a dozen for old used bottles. Make sure you sterilise them when you get them home, and then do it again before pouring your beer into the bottle.
If it's a matter doing something as simple as checking the tire pressure, the fluid levels and cleaning the air filter, it's a do it yourself job. Almost every gas station or auto parts near me carries tire pressure gauges right on their front counters and most places that have the air station have one built into their air machine. To check fluid levels, you just pull the dipstick, wipe it off on a cloth and put it back in get the level then look to see if it's within the marks. Cleaning an air filter couldn't be any easier, either. Pull it out, take a brush and gently brush it clean and put it back. Simple right?
Put yourself in the customer's shoes. Would you want to be treated that way? Service brings satisfaction and satisfaction brings trial orders followed by repeat orders. Anything less than immediate and consistent service only wastes your time -- and that of your prospective customer!
Some people decide to scrap good cars for small repairs that could of been fixed fairly cheap by searching local scrap places that carry and sell used vehicle accessories.
