Help me save my car so I can go to work

Hey, guys, it’s Jon Byers here. You may remember me from such hits as “Help me fix my car” and “Help keep me and my mom off the streets”. I’ve made GoFundMes in the past and they’ve always helped me tremendously, but bad luck seems to constantly strike and here I am again. As I’ve said before, my mom is disabled, and I take care of her and am the primary source of income. I’m a full time college student at Georgia Southern University, and I work, too, but my hours have been cut severely. Anyway, I finally got an apartment (thanks to GoFundMe) right when we were basically on the streets with nowhere to go. Before that, I had found out that my car was in a bad state of disrepair, to the point of where it was unsafe to drive. So when my mechanic offered to buy it, I sold it and bought another used car from a used car lot. Well, they sold me a lemon. It just stopped on me in the middle of the interstate the other day, and I found out that it has been leaking oil for months (and I’ve only had it ONE month) and now I need a new motor. Without a car, I can’t go to school, and I can’t get to work. I can’t get to work, I can’t pay rent. I can’t pay rent, my mom and I are back the streets - AGAIN. So I’m begging for any help anyone can possible give me. I know a lot of people who have sold cars that needed a motor, so I’m hoping to do the same and get part of the money to buy my old Nissan back now that my mechanic has fixed it. If I can’t do that, then I want to buy a new motor and get my car fixed. Either way, anything you guys can do would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for being so wordy, and thank you for reading! God bless!
