Hi, I am a 19 year old college student in need of some money to pay for tuition and life, so I decided to make money doing what I do best. Dont let the age fool you, I have been fixing cars for family and friends even before I got my licence, without a single mistake ever made. Email me your problem, and I will give you a solution, even if I cannot repair it due to time constraints or equiptment. Fluids, brakes, alternators, starters, sensors, stereo, lighting, and much much more. I can do maintenance work, as well as aftermarket modifications. Once you have me work on your car, you will never want to go anywhere else again.

Someone, as always, has once again proven himself to be a liar. I remember a year or so ago that you didn't even know how to replace your own sparkplugs and plug wires... On a Neon, possibly the easiest car ever built to replace plugs and wires. So much for your self proclaimed experience, honesty and ethics.

Your name, the ad and this thread have been forwarded to appropriate agencies. Have a nice day.

No, I specifically dont remember that. I may have asked for help when I wanted to see if there were torque specs for the valve cover, but nothing other than that. I havent done anything wrong honestly...in fact, I havent even operated on anyone's car at this point. All I did was put out an ad that I can repair/replace certain things, so technically I havent broken any rules. Let me get this straight. I am making money on the side by doing some small work, and you report me. Why dont you report the kids down the block that go door to door to shovel snow in the winter and make some money for toys too. Dumbass

edit: also, nowhere did i say I was a certified technician....nor did I say I was a professional. I specifically stated that im a 19 year old college student who needs money for school...if anyone is not comfortable with the idea of a teenager operating on their cars, by all means noone is forcing them to use my services, or even email me with a question. Also, as stated and shown before, I do not lie to people to make a quick buck and take on jobs that I am clueless about, or even not comfortable doing. So, where have I broken rules for the "proper authorities" to have to deal with me.

2nd edit: also, you sent me a PM with information to help me work on a car, and you knew I would make money from it, but now you are getting sore...here is that PM

Liar. It's shocking to me and everyone else who have ever read your continual and ongoing bullsh*t that you don't remember saying something that would make you look stupid. On the other hand, you say so many things that make you look stupid, I can understand how one or two might slip your mind. You need a personal secretary to keep all your lies straight.

The second you begin to accept money for automotive repair, or any service for that matter, you enter the realm of professional. It doesn't matter how completely inept or totally incompetent you are, and you are both of those in spades. If you're taking money, you need to be insured, licensed and ideally certified. Otherwise you're just another shadetree crook, which is no surprise as you've shown over and over that you don't have an honest bone in your body.

Liar. Let's look at some quotes from your ad and then explore the experience, honesty and ethics contained therein. "...so I decided to make money doing what I do best." What's that, lie to people and pretend you know things that you don't? "...I have been fixing cars for family and friends even before I got my licence, without a single mistake ever made." Oh, really? You're history on this forum, in your own words, tells a completely different story. "Email me your problem, and I will give you a solution..." Can you gaurantee that, or is this just more BS? We know the solution is not to let a douche bag like you touch their car. "Once you have me work on your car, you will never want to go anywhere else again." You finally got something right. After having you "operate" on their car, they'll never trust anyone to touch anything they own again.

You are a scab on the ass of an entire industry. If you have nothing to hide and nothing to fear, then you'll be happy to speak to the state of PA regarding their legal requirements for businesses and payment of income and sales taxes along with OSHA and PDEP requirements, which of course as an honest and ethical person you're complying with to a T. Right? of course you are.

Liar. I had no idea that you were doing this for money. Proof? let's look at your own words;

He said he did a voltage check before the wire harness enters the ballast, and said there is voltage in the wires. He thinks the ballast might be bad, so when I get the car, I told him I would take off the light and open the ballast to see if maybe something needs to be soldered or something got broken somehow. My question is

Are there any typical ballast issues that I should look for, or is it even possible to repair the piece?? If it cant be done I will just tell him to get a new one from Nissan and Il put it in along with the brakes, but I dont want him spending all the money if its not needed right now. Thanks
Liar. No matter how many times I read that post, I can't for the life of me find where you said you're getting paid for the job. Can you show it to me? Can anyone show it to me? Didn't think so. Did I mention that you're a liar?

Liar. That screen shot proves what, other than I made the mistake of trying to help a total piece of sh*t like you? The only law that I broke was the one of common sense. Note to self. Never EVER try to help a stupid motherf*cker like him again because no good deed goes unpunished.


P.S. The only reason you're the technical advisor or whatever on those other forums is the 1% rule. Youre 1% smarter on the subject than they are, or more likely, you're a 100% more likely to lie about your qualifications than they are.

1. Do these ring any bells Twinkie? Documented proof that YOU DON'T KNOW SH*T! Now don't go away mad, just go away.

2. Yes I did. You're just not smart enough to figure it out. Additionally, there is essentially zero liability or technology involved in shoveling snow. You might even be intelligent enough to do it. You are comparing apples and oranges.

3. What I do know is that you don't know sh*t. See #1. You are a loser wannabe that will only make life harder for honest, educated and hardworking techs. You know nothing about cars, you only know how to pose. STFU.


On a side note, if your job as a car parking bitch is so wonderful, why do you need more money? And what happened to that $100k a year job of yours? Oh, that's right, more bullsh*t. Surprise!

P.P.S. When are you going to answer my questions, Twinkie. That's right, you did by completely ignoring them. Good on ya.

P.P.P.S. You haven't helped anyone yet, so how is this going to change anything?

so you bought a product to do the job, which you didn't know how to use. I'd say you didnt' know how to do the job

Irrelevant. You said you never had to ask... You never mentioned that you might have had to ask 2 years ago.

Your ad says you've never made a mistake even since before you had your licence .... so you must have known your stuff for more than 2 years..... so saying "that was 2 years ago" means 3 tenths of f-ck all!!

Hrm...you don't sound 100% sure on what to do here.

If Hobo did actually report you to the authorities, yeah that sucks. On the other hand, you knew they laws, you broke them. This is different from kids shoveling snow not only because they are under age and don't pay income tax, but also because you are (legally) an adult and should begin acting like one.

On one hand you're clearly not qualified to be charging people for these services. On the other hand, if people are cheap enough to actually pay you, maybe they'll learn a lesson.
