Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Do you still need help?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I took my car to a mechanic, so I no longer require help; furthermore, I never received the call I requested and the technician did NOT help me. I expect that I will only be charged the initial $5. Thank you!

I'm glad you got it repaired.
