"I can fix anything with a small motor. I like being able to help other people do that, too!"

Ron, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I got into medicine in order to help people and JustAnswer allows me to help so many more people, on a much larger scale. I would not have been to help such a varied group of patients by simply working in a single hospital over the years. The customers on JA are simply the best!"

Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Computers and tech are easy for me and JustAnswer gives me the opportunity to make it easy for others. It makes me really happy to get someone's computer working again."

Viet, Computer Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"I became an attorney to help people. Now that I am retired I can continue that calling by helping JustAnswer customers find the information that they need."

Ely, Counselor at Law
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I enjoy the variety of questions and being able to do it from anywhere in the world. I have done it from about 20 states, several foreign countries, Jamaica, Mexico and others. I enjoy the ability to work and have freedom to travel. I appreciate the staff at JA they have really helped the experts do a better job with the dashboard and other related items."

Ray, Lawyer
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"I became an attorney to help people. Now that I am retired I can continue that calling by helping JustAnswer customers find the information that they need."

Ely, Counselor at Law
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I love JustAnswer because I enjoy leveling the field for the little guy. My goal with each of my customers is to not only explain the law, but also provide a solution to their problem. To be able to do that at an affordable price is as fulfilling to me as I hope it is to my customers."

Richard, Lawyer
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"I really like the fact that I learn something new about the law every day. I have learned so much by researching the answers to the questions. I really feel JA has made me a better lawyer."

Loren, Attorney
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Giving assistance to people when they need it is really fulfilling. So many times we can fix stuff easily and save the customer lots of money, too."

Mike V., Nissan Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"I can fix anything with a small motor. I like being able to help other people do that, too!"

Ron, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"Working on JustAnswer has been a life changing experience for me, I get to do what I love, providing expert help to people with their car problems across the globe."

Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"I love working on JustAnswer and cannot name just one thing I enjoy the most, the flexibility, the satisfaction of a customer saying that I was very helpful, the extra income for my family, the teamwork from other Experts on the site, it truly is a great site and I'm lucky to be a part of it. I love helping people on JustAnswer for the simple reason that in the automotive world there is so much misinformation on the web that costs customers hundreds if not thousands of unnecessary dollars, that I can inform them properly with factory info and real world hands on experience and lead them in the right direction, if not help fix the issues at hand, and you cannot put a value on that."

Lou P., Master Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since

"I love getting to help people every day, at any hour! People from all over the world come to me with questions, seeking advice! Not everyone has access to doctors who are genuinely interested in listening and helping, and that's what I love most! I love being a sounding board for worries or questions or curious minds!"

drcaplan, Board Certified Physician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2013

"JustAnswer is a life changer for me. It gives me the opportunity to work anytime of my choice. JA platform is always evolving and thus there are continuous learning opportunities. JustAnswer connects global audience with global workers. JA makes it possible to use my skills, experience and knowledge to help people from diverse communities and cultures. I am so happy when somebody mentions that my answer prevented an ER or urgent care visit or my online diagnosis was confirmed by their doctor. JustAnswer has given me money, learning opportunities, professional recognition and satisfaction, and many new friends and colleagues."

Dr. Arun Phophalia, Surgeon
Expert on JustAnswer since 2007

"I love working with people on JustAnswer because I get to spend a lot of time with each person and really get to the bottom of the question."

Dr. K, Board Certified OB/GYN
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"I got into medicine in order to help people and JustAnswer allows me to help so many more people, on a much larger scale. I would not have been to help such a varied group of patients by simply working in a single hospital over the years. The customers on JA are simply the best!"

Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Since the invention of the internet, the world became a much smaller place. It is a privilege to be part of the JustAnswer team since it allows me to help and guide clients anywhere in the world, especially when they are in a remote area without a veterinarian. The joy to be able to assist people (pet owners, animal lovers) whenever possible and provide my advice and support to the best of my knowledge is one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever felt as a veterinarian."

Dr. Peter, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"JustAnswer provides me with a unique opportunity to help a large number of people and the pets they love. Trying to help pet owners with whatever issues or concerns they might have is tremendously rewarding and satisfying on many levels."

Dr. Deb, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2011

"When people who are worried about their pets come to JustAnswer I think of how much my dog Ilsa means to me. Then I give my best answer, by telling concerned pet owners what I would do in their situation for my own beloved pets."

Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"As a dedicated small animal vet I have spent my whole career helping people with their much loved pet's health problems and I am very glad of the opportunity JustAnswer gives me to continue to do so online. But it is not all one sided, researching the answers I give helps keep me up to date and abreast of the latest developments in my field."

Dr. Scott Nimmo, Veterinarian
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"Working on JustAnswer has granted me the pleasure of meeting and working with some truly awesome people. I genuinely enjoy assisting each of my customers, with each of their individual needs. I strive to make customer satisfaction my number one priority. It is very rewarding, just knowing that I have personally helped someone who relied upon me, to lead them in the right direction."

Donald, Small Engine Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"I really enjoy helping people particularly when they are in a bind, like the guy in Alaska with no heat, it's 30 below and the nearest repair guy is 200 miles away by plane!"

Rick, HVAC Supervisor
Expert on JustAnswer since 2005

"As an expert in the appliance category I get to help customers save money on unnecessary service calls and overpriced parts which for me makes being a member of the JustAnswer community a very rewarding experience."

Joel Swenson, Owner, Scott's Appliance Repair
Expert on JustAnswer since 2015

"I enjoy the freedom and the unrestricted earning potential working on JA provides. Mostly I enjoy knowing that my help provides customers an alternative solution to an expensive appliance repair and empowers them to learn and solve a problem that they would not likely be able to solve on their own!"

Kelly, Appliance Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2008

"For me, nothing is more rewarding than the satisfaction you get from helping people and that is why I'm here. JustAnswer is not just a platform of simple questions and answers but it's more about caring, sharing, learning, laughing, loving and helping each other. JustAnswer is so rewarding and the best!"

Ashik, Mac Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2009

"Computers and tech are easy for me and JustAnswer gives me the opportunity to make it easy for others. It makes me really happy to get someone's computer working again."

Viet, Computer Technician
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"It's so rewarding to help customers to fix their computer problems and go beyond their expectations. Apart from the challenge for me (which I like a lot), I love it when I can "feel" their smile when we finish the session, which started out with a sad face for the customer. JustAnswer is a win-win situation for everyone involved!"

Lorenz Vauck, Computer Expert
Expert on JustAnswer since 2014

"Knowing that my knowledge and expertise can help others with their computer problems fulfills me every day. JustAnswer gives me a way to transform frustration into satisfaction, and I am sure my customers appreciate it very much!"

IT Miro, Computer Scientist
Expert on JustAnswer since 2010

"It is truly gratifying to help customers discover and learn about their fine art and objects. I feel so fortunate that I can share my education, experience and earned credentials to provide customers with an honest, professional and informed answer. I am thankful and fortunate to be an integral member of a community comprised of caring, professional, accredited experts who provide superior individual attention to the thousands of people around the globe who come to Justanswer for help on a daily basis."

Nora, Accredited Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since 2012

"Working at JustAnswer has allowed me to earn a living from my home. I aquired a rare disease that made it impossible to work in the public any longer, this job has allowed me to continue earning my living and maintain my self sufficiency. I was thrilled to find this site. Those in charge of the site have been wonderful to work with."

Glenda B., Antiques Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since

"We all love discovering the details and value of our antique treasures and collectibles, and I love being able to provide that for customers. The JustAnswer format makes it so easy and confidential for them, too. There's no need to bring an item anywhere and no concerns about the expertise or honest opinion, say, of a local pawnbroker or antique dealer. Customers really enjoy getting an accurate, unbiased and detailed evaluation -and in the privacy and convenience of their home."

Robert S., Accredited Appraiser
Expert on JustAnswer since 2011

"I enjoy the experience of growing as an appraiser of a large variety of treasures. Each question asked is an opportunity to draw on my reserve of knowledge and experience or learn through researching in a new field. I find it very satisfying when I can give accurate history and value to solve mysteries for my customers."

Doris, Owner, Nashville Appraisals Corp.

Legal Opinion Regarding Mexican Immigration

"I contacted JustAnswer about a critical question I had about residency status for a U.S. citizen in Mexico... the lawyer referred me to justanswer.es which is its Mexican counterpart. There I was about to get counsel from a Mexican attorney IN Mexico. That's great service!"

S.L.

I wish I had made this connection before I took my cat to the vet!

"The response to my questions was immediate and the phone consultation with Dr. Lori allowed me to have all my questions answered. Going forward, I knew what course to take concerning my cat's health, and felt much more confident in her explanation than I did the vet that I had taken my cat to previously. I wholeheartedly recommend JustAnswer if you don't know where to turn or what to ask. Dr. Lori was very knowledgeable and kind. Thank you."

A Revolution in Accessing Quality Professional Help

"I used to be frustrated when I needed a legal opinion. I'd have to make an appointment, wait several days and then pay a ton of money for a simple question. With JustAnswer I get to speak with a highly knowledgeable attorney for a fee that I can afford. There's nothing else like it."

Hi. I'm extremely allergic to Clorox. I cleaned my carpets with hot water and Clorox with a Bissell machine yesterday for about 20 mins. After, I was deeply confused. Couldn't remember my tel. #, directors, or often how to speak or type. Better today, but still headache. Fans and A/C have been on. Should I seek medical care?
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: No nausea. Headache all night, but on and off today. Still running in my mind at about 70%
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Asthma maybe. Many allergies. Migraines. Meds for BP, anxiety and others.

2000 Chrysler Seebring convertible.... I'm having trouble with the AC..At first the system was just blowing cool. so i added one can of Freon and all was good, blowing cold. then after a couple of days it started to just blow cool again. so i added another can and the high side went to 400 plus and the compressor kept cycling. so i emptied the system completely and then added only 12 ozs.(1 Can) and the pressure went real high again. I would suspect that I have a blockage somewhere but i dont know how to find it. I'm looking for the orifice tube but i can not find one. I disconnected the lines at the radiator to see if tube was there but nothing in there. Can you help Please. Thanks .

The valve is the most likely place as it has the smallest port in it. If the valve looks good, and there is no debris in the valve ports, then you will have to check the lines and condenser and see if any of them are restricted.

Is an unpaid moving violation from 9 years ago considered debt, and does it have a time limit on collection?
JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Ticket was in WA and I now live in WI.
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Nothing outside the ticket itself 9 years ago. Nothing on my credit report either.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Thank you for the additional information. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.First, traffic fines never expire and are not dischargeable in a Chap 7 bankruptcy.Second, District courts, for what it’s worth, uniformly hold that a fine does not stem from a consensual transaction, and thus is not a debt under the FDCPA.I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not want to see you spinning your wheels on this. Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

I have a 1998.5 Dodge Ram diesel where the AC compressor will not stay running. The compressor, metering tube, accumulator and a few other parts have just been replaced. When the AC is turned on, the compressor engages for a second or less and then cuts out. I checked the pressure on the low side with one of those AC refrigerant charge cans and the pressure is high in the red. When the compressor is hot wired, the pressures go to normal, both high and low. What is causing this?

Hi,I am a single member LLC who elected the S Corp election (Form 2553). I would like to claim an home office but since I am an employee of the S Corp I dont want to itemize the home office deduction since it will phase out.
Thus, I was thinking about the following option:Have the S corporation reimburse me the expenses that are allocable to the business use of the home (I will have a record/document of the truly business portion and how the total household overhead is allocated). My question is about these types of reimbursements. Will I be obligated to include them as a taxable amount on my individual tax return or can I classify them as untaxable fringe benefits and ignore them.Please assume that the amount is reasonable, NOT lavish and supported.Please advise

Just purchased a 2001 Honda CRV from family member. Honda CRV 2001...what should I have looked at for reliability ? And what price range should I expect ? It just had an oil change
JA: When was your last oil change?
Customer: Pearl...oil changed 7-1-2017 But what else needs to be inspected for reliability ?
JA: Are you fixing your CR-V yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No...I would seek a professional, but probably not a Honda dealership.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not really....simply looking for guidance on reliability ( belts, battery, etc) The car has 195,000 on it.

I posted my reply above. Do you not see it? I will re-post my reply below:--------------------Thanks for holding!First and foremost to check here is the Timing Belt. The timing belt is what keeps the internal engine components "in time" and keep the engine running. If this belt is to break while the engine is under load (like highway speeds or hill climbing) it can result in major internal engine damage. This belt is to be replaced at intervals of every 105,000 miles. So it's important to have it inspected. And if you are uncertain when it was last replaced, and there are any doubts after it is inspected... best bet is to have it replaced.Other items that should be checked-Check the brake pads and make sure they are within thickness limits.Front end items;, tie rods and ball joints.Suspension items; struts.Serpentine Belt (the one you can see under the hood). Inspect the belt for any signs of cracks along the ribbed side and/of "glazing" (excessively shiny) on the flat side.Transmission fluid. Check the color and make sure it is a pinkish color and that it does not smell burnt and there are no signs of metal flakes in it.If these are all in good condition, you should be good to go!Please be kind enough to leave a rating for our Q&A using the 'stars' at the top of the page or click 'Accept' when I have answered all your questions. A 5-star rating is very much appreciated! Rating or accepting my answer does not cost you extra.

Can you speak on the phone? This would allow me to address your concerns directly. There is a nominal additional charge. I do not time my phone calls...we can converse until you receive the information you need. If you are unwilling to speak on the phone I will opt out of this question and allow others to assist, if they are willing.

Yesterday was last day of a heavy period today i got a feelig like i was going to puke then felt faint took xanax feel better. Is this anxiety or something else? I do have GAD and very sensitive to my body. I never had low iron and get tested every year.

Yes as i said its this situational , related to menses only . Improvement with xanax means it helps calm your nerves during such spells. Its useful to get a blood count done just to rule out any possibility of anemia.Perimenstrual anxiety is not very uncommon though and many girls suffer from such spells .

The IRS does not have a required method for determining the Fair Market value of a property, short of an appraisal on the day of the conversion.
