Hello Scotty Kilmer, I have been a follower of yours for some time and really enjoy your YouTube…


Hello Scotty Kilmer, I have been a follower of yours for some time and really enjoy your YouTube Channel. I have a 1997 Buick Century Custom 4dr sedan, the cheapest, smallest Buick in 1997. It has 85,000 miles, and I put 3000 miles a year on it now. I am 76 years old and expect to drive less than 5 more years, probably less than 3. I have a couple of issues with the car. It needs a brake job and, I think, a new A/C clutch. It also needs all of the maintenance I have neglected to be caught up with. It needs belts and hoses, new coolant and transmission fluid, at least. It may also need a tie rod end or two. I am not sure. The car has the notorious 3.1l engine, but the head gasket was replaced about 10-11 years ago and there has been no trouble since. The struts were replaced about 7 years ago. The tires are fairly new and good. The A/C compressor and one hose were replaced 7 years ago. The oil has been changed regularly. There is a fairly long list of cosmetic problems that I expect to fix myself or just let slide. I am careful with my money and given the expected future use of the car, it doesn't seem to make financial sense to try to replace it. Another used car would be a significant outlay, and they have been known to have problems as well. I would like to fix it up and keep it going. All I need is a dependable driver, and I probably only drive 3 days a week. Would you be willing to work on it? I realize it is not going to be free. If you can't take it on, can you recommend someone in the Meyerland/Bellaire area. I am not so much looking for cheap, as I am looking for honesty and high quality. One way or the other, I will continue to watch your channel and enjoy your videos. Thanks for reading my letter. Take care, Joe Cobb
