Default Need a little help

After 20+ years we sold our house last month and along with it went my ability to wrench on cars. Current place does not have a garage or driveway to work on.

I have a Land Rover LR3 that needs front rotors and pads and rear pads. I also have a leak somewhere between the gas filler neck and the gas tank throwing a code for the evap system.

The inspection is good until the end of November.

If anyone that has a lift that would be kind enough to spare it for about 3 hours it would be greatly appreciated. My tools are mobile so that will not be an issue.

Thanks in advance.

Marc

We have a 4 poster with dual bridge jacks. Also have a smoke machine with inflatable bladder plug that works great on fuel fillers for finding leaks. Lovettsville. Does that work for you?

Just wanted to thank everyone who responded on this. It was much appreciated.

If I can ever help anyone with wrenching (can't offer the garage anymore ), I have plenty of time on my hands.

Marc

Thank you Dave.

After 37 years of dealing with War of the Roses I finally decided enough was enough.

Now the hands are idle . . . .

I just wanted to express my gratitude to everyone who responded. It was greatly valued.

I have plenty of free time if I can ever assist anyone with wrenching (I can't offer the garage anymore).
