Jeep Repair Fund

As some of you may know, me and my mother have been without transportation for about 8 months, since right before Covid really hit. We had narrowed the possible issues down to just the battery and the starter. I immediately replaced the battery, but it turned out it was the starter anyway.
With my mother being immunocompromised and needing care, we were suddenly locked in the house with no income, and were surviving off the grace of my friends.
About a week ago, I got a refund from my financial aid at school. After careful budgeting, I was able to order the starter and hire a mechanic that had given a reasonable quote.
Today, November 6th, was the day that the jeep was scheduled to be fixed. Unfortunately, he was unable to install it as there was a serious oil leak that had actually caused the starter to go out in the first place. He said that it needs a new valve cover gasket and that he would be able to repair that as well, but it would have to be scheduled out. Currently we are aiming at next week if I have the funds.
Below are the costs outlined in the best way I could, as well as what I already paid. I was able to talk down the prices quite a bit, as well.

Total Labor                                           200
Gasket Replacement                         60
Starter Replacement (PAID)      113
Diagnostic/Deposit (PAID)            60

Total Owed                                           260
Total Overall                                        433

All this work comes with a one year warranty on all the repairs, as well as an engine cleaning as to detect any further leaks.

Please share this fundraiser, every single dollar helps! Getting my Jeep back up and running will greatly improve a lot in my situation, and I'll be able to get my own groceries. Again, every dollar helps, and I appreciate any help. Donate, share, or invite!

Any funds that go over the 260 will go into a contingency fund in case anything else goes wrong.
