My parents “gave” me my mom’s old car (a 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix SE) when my car died and I needed transportation to school. I plan to pay them $2000 for the car when I can–which won’t be soon, as I am a medical student and I have 2 more years of school. After a few more months, however, I will no longer need the car, and my brother wants it. I’ll be happy to give it to him at that time.
The problem is that I just found out the car needs a new upper intake manifold gasket, which would cost me $800-1000. If I want to keep driving it, I will have to have this repair done, but I have very little money…so I don’t know how I’m going to do it! Any thoughts?! I need help!
