Its actually pretty simple. Check your account page to sign up to become an expert. After you prove your quality of work you can apply to get paid for it. I've only just started, but helping people is always a nice thing to do, getting paid makes it even better!

    No one on the FIXYA site gets paid. The site runs itself due to the Experts and Moderators (like me) and is purely an advertising medium to get revenue for the Capital Investment Company that owns it.

    You can get paid at 6ya.com. but you have to be invited and all the fixing is done over the phone. Also, you have to reside in the USA.

Today was my first day at a new job I received bad news about my father I showed up to work but when I found the manager I explained the news I got told her I didn't want it to have a bad reflect on me yet...

why apologize at all
you explained the circumstances and see told you "family comes first"
IF she is honest , there is no problem
If she is not , then she is not worth working for
management integrity is what it is all about

Refrigerator Troubleshooting Refrigerator Compressor

All the things in your refrigerator are getting warm. The freezer is thawing and when you listen closely you hear a click with a buzz, another little click and then nothing for a few minutes. Then the same thing starts all over again. You fear the worst and you are probably correct. The compressor has decided that it will not start anymore.

When this happens, sometimes it is the fault of the capacitor or the start relay. There is about as good a chance that changing these start components will work as it is that it will not work. If you can do the changing your self then you should get the parts and do the work. You have half a chance that it will work. If you will need to pay someone else to do the work then you need to look hard at what it will cost you and what the unit is worth, then decide to take a chance or not.

If you do decide to change the start components then you need to make sure that you unplug the refrigerator long enough the let the compressor cool completely. Even with new components a hot compressor often will not start. Believe me if your compressor is trying to start and can't then it will be very hot!

If you end up needing to change the compressor, get a complete price so that you can make a good evaluation of the cost versus replacement. Make sure that the replacement will not cost more than half the replacement costs. Why pour money into something that will have something else fail before too long? Also remember that federal laws require a certification to handle refrigerants and persons doing the job need to recover or reclaim all refrigerants and handle them accordingly. A compressor replacement is NOT a DIY job. Specialized equipment is needed to do the job properly.

This should give you some guidelines to help you if you hear the dreaded click, buzz, click.

Heater core

The procedure for doing this job is long. The best fix for you is to get a repair manual from your local autoparts store for your car. They are worth their weight in gold as far as the information they provide. An added plus is that you can take the manual with you as you do the job, and refer to the drawings and pictures as you work. Its way over 10,000 charectors long, and that is the limit for posts here on fixya.

Drumbearings - is it worth replacing them and

Spin bearing replacement is quite a big job..You may also have to replace the shaft which goes from the pulley to the inner drum.
The easiest way to do the job is to replace the rear drum, but the bearings and seals can be replaced individually...Get quotes for both methods..
Good luck....Nomess

Ac power problems

For $75.00 bucks I wouldn't even open it up... lol Thats a good deal if they do a good job. Thats a fair price too I charge like $65 - $80 and hour depending on what is being done. remembering of course we often in actuality often work on something for 6 hours, and only charge 2 - 3, because a job is worth what a job is worth.

How to fix a 99 http://www.fixya.com/#Nissan clutch how to fix a water pump

what are you talking about the fan clutch? if so it unbolts from the fan and water pump and the clutch can be replaced. The pickups had problems with the ideler pully so replace it at the same time. if it's slipping not going into gear then yo need a clutch pack throw out bearing and ideler bearing you will need to have the flywheel surfaced as well. costs about $280.oo for everything and a days worth of work, it's light enought for one man to do the job.

I gotta CHANGE THE BRAKE SHOES ON A TOYOTA TERCEL 98, i GET THE TIRE OUT BUT THEN WHAT?

With all due respect, I strongly suggest that you purchase a repair manual for your vehicle, if you are going to work on your brakes, and have someone who is familiar with auto repair check over the work. Brakes are - well life savers. To describe the entire brake job, it would a full page worth of writing, and pictures are worth a thousand words, as it's said. The manual will have the pictures and a full description of the job.
Good Luck!
