  • Is collision coverage worth keeping?

    I have a 2007 Chevy Impala with 101,000 miles. Kelley Blue book said it has a value of $4,200 but that seems high. The car will be paid off in a month. For a car this age should I drop collision coverage?

  • Should motor oil grade matter?

    I have a 2007 Chevy Impala. Under the hood it said SAE 5w30 where oil is added. I ended up buying SAE 5w20. This oil will just be to top it off. Does it really matter with these oil grades and will it be alright to use it for getting it to the full mark?

  • What are reasons for stock offerings?

    It seems that sometimes a stock has something called an offering for shares. Usually the price goes down a little. Why wouldn't they just buy at the current market price? Is a stock offering a sign of a good or bad financial company?

  • Will worn brake pads wear rotors?

    About 2 months ago a shop said I need brakes and the rotors are good. The place I go to has been closed for 2 months due to Covid 19 and just reopened. I went there today and he said the rotors are bad too. Once brake pads are so worn does it end up eating into the rotors and destroying them?

  • Am I being tested financially?

    I am in my mom's house for two years since she passed away. I don't make much money and take care of a mentally ill brother. I have a brother that lives 5 hours away and around the time my mom passed he said what if I help financially to keep house but doesn't pay towards anything. I have a cousin that is representative payee for my ill brother and gets $1,100 monthly. My brother with me got sepsis 8 weeks ago and is recovering but can't walk yet. My cousin still pays electric, gas and phone and cable and used to give me $600 monthly for food and other expenses. My cousin said she can't give any money since my brother isn't home. With the loss of my mom's social security money and the other $600 I don't see how they feel I will keep house. I feel I will sell house. Am I being tested financially to see what I will do with all this loss of income and if I decide to sell house should I tell them first?

  • Will my job last much longer?

    I started a job through a temporary agency the week of Thanksgiving. We mainly fill orders for Steelers merchandise like hats or shirts. Orders have really gone down since the Steelers lost. When I interviewed for the job they said the job will last based on how well the Steelers do. We were so busy before Christmas and had about a dozen extra people but they laid them all off but kept me only with the regular workers. I will say my work output is better than most working there. I now do other things since orders went down. Is there a chance I will get to continue at this job or will I likely be let go soon?

  • Will my brother care if not in mother's will?

    My brother left us 20 years ago and never contacted us or told us where he lived. For some reason he started visiting every holiday three years ago. It is a five hour drive. My brother also must have paid about $30,000 to mom to help for a few years of property taxes and other things. My mom just passed away but doesn't have my brother in the will she made out 15 years ago since he avoids mom. My brother sounds to be doing well financially and didn't ask about inheritance or will. Will my brother expect part of the estate of my mom or may he never ask about it?

My car is a 2000 Buick Century so I had no choice than to get another car. Why would this mechanic cut my wiring harness and isn't it important?

  • Can I use snow tires during summer?

    I got an oil change today that usually includes rotating tires. The mechanic told me he isn't going to rotate mine. I asked him is it because they are old and he said something about if rotated they could affect my ride and something about being worn. I got these tires from an ad that they will be put in someones yard for whoever comes first. These tires had great tread so I took them in January and got them mounted on. I have drove them 7,000 miles. I don't know if they are snow tires or not. Even if these are a snow tire can't I still safely drive on them in the Summer?

  • Is a quiet engine a healthy one?

    My car is a 2000 Buick Century. When I drive in a parking lot sometimes people don't seem to hear my car coming and walk right in front of me. I use a quart of oil every thousand miles which I guess isn't bad. My car engine seems quiet to me. Is a quiet engine a healthy one and does it sound like mine is good except for oil use?

  • If car brakes are never replaced will they fail?

    In my state annual state inspections tell if brake pads are worn and need replaced. In most states without inspections it must be the owner that needs to know when they need brakes. If someone never replaced brake pads would they eventually fail and the owner could not stop vehicle at all and if they were going 40 MPH they could only stop car by hitting something?

  • Could mental illness end family relationship?

    My brother is supposed to have schizophrenia. We had close relationship and talked daily until 5 years ago. At that time he said I don't like you anymore and he has never been the same. He will not respond to anything I ask him and I can't talk to him because I know he doesn't want to. He talks all day with my mom. If he wants to ask me something he will not do it and asks mom to. I don't think it is fair to never admire anything I do and I am the only driver to get food and other stuff. If I get him new shoes he never will say a word about it. I feel my brother just chooses to treat me this way and is getting away with it.Does it sound like this is his mental illness or is he just taking advantage of me?

  • Are car rocker panels heavy?

    I saw a Craigslist ad for new rocker panels for my 2000 Buick for $80. Since mine are corroded this can be a good buy. The problem is this is 5 hours from me. I would pay the extra charge for shipping. Can I expect to buy these panels and have them shipped or will they be too heavy and long?

  • Can I pass police car with lights?

    I was helping to stock fish today. The cop was in his vehicle talking to a guy from the fish commission in his vehicle. There was enough room to get by and I passed them. They did have their lights on while talking. The cop turned around and went after me. I told him I was helping with the fish. He said I am not supposed to pass with their lights on. I was told I could get a hefty fine for this but I didn't. I guess he may have ticketed me if I wasn't doing a good cause by helping. Was I wrong to pass them with their lights on even though they were just talking and there was room for me to get through?

  • How good are cut brake rotors?

    I saw brake rotors for $10 listed on Craigslist for my Buick Century. He tells me the rotors were cut once and in good shape. I guess they are not as good as new but close to it. How close to new should I expect these rotors to be and are they worth buying?
