Hi everyone, my name is Kyle MacMillan

I own a 2003 Subaru Liberty GT Premium, this is my dream car and I love her so.

Unfortunately the engine has blown up. My hypothesis is that the piston has shattered or the head lifted and warped the bore. Dok dok dok. I am unfortunately mentally ill; having been hospitalized on several occasions with depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenic tendencies and childhood PTSD. I have been declared entirely unfit for work, unable to afford much in the way of food and bills let alone a new heart for my Subi. If I had a vehicle there is a workplace who would overlook my conditions and would allow me to create a livelihood once more.

What I'm typing out here is a plea for help in a community which has yielded me so much support prior, I am at the last of my anything and everyone is hounding me for cash I don't have, I've not been eating or improving, only ever deteriorating and as it is I can't really see a way through.

My liberty was realistically all I had to be proud of, the fruits of my labor and the symbol of what I could achieve. It was hope, it was personal freedom. Gone for an hour in that and I couldn't hear my demons any longer. But now they're back and shouting.

I will be entirely appreciative of any support offered. Whether it be a share or kind words. If you have financial advice or otherwise I'm also open to it. I am desperate.
This is the GoFundMe https://www.gofundme...-liberty-please
Please, please save my dream.

Finally I beg you, please don't make fun of me or send something harmful. I can't take it like I used too and even seemingly harmless banter may push me off a cliff with no recovery.

Hey Kyle,

Firstly, welcome to the forum!

Secondly, sorry to hear about your car and your troubles in general. It seems like you're doing all the right things to look after yourself.

While I can't offer any financial assistance, I can offer you the following:

I'd recommend joining a men's shed over your way. These groups are awesome in helping others in the community in different ways, as well as forming strong and supporting male friendships. While men's sheds may not typically take on mechanical projects, they may know of an avenue or another group that would be willing to do the work. That may be the way to get your labour costs down. Or a group of you may learn how to pull an engine, strip it down, get the machine work done then rebuild and reinstall.

Another avenue to look at could be your local TAFE - hit up the mechanical department and see if they'd be willing to pull the engine down and rebuild it as a learning exercise. Again, this may be a good way to avoid labour costs.

Both methods will take time - unfortunately without money, DIY is the best way if you're able to do it and it always takes time.

Also the men's shed may open up other avenues for suitable employment through word of mouth.

While your baby isn't running, I find working on mine to get it going again/sorting out issues to make it better is very therapeutic and rewarding. Sometimes it doesn't feel this way while doing the work but the feeling of success is where it all becomes worth while - particularly if it's been a harder than anticipated slog (enter my gearbox rebuild after blowing 2nd gear on a remote 4wd track - took about 12 months to sort that out!).

I'm sure many of us on the forum sympathise with you not having your pride and joy on the road, we've all been there at some point before.

All the best with getting your pride and joy up and running again! Keep us posted with any updates on the rebuild/engine replacement.

I think I speak for many on the forum when I say we hope you find a better place in your life and you're able to kick some personal financial goals.

Regards

Bennie

Thanks so much for the reply mate, truly.

As far as we can theorize the bottom end is gone beyond reasonable repair or re-machining.

I have no car as of current and no way to realistically get anywhere. But when I do I will try to check both the men's shed and the TAFEs.

I'm in such a situation that is even difficult for me to get to the car, as it's stored on a farm elsewhere than my residence.

 

Thanks again.
