One of my brothers, who lives over 4 hours away from me, wants to come down over Easter weekend, so Ican fix his rattling muffler and check the thermostat in his car, it drives me crazy, how hard is it? Not that hard, mind you he is my older brother, and I have no Mechanic experience, other than working on my own vehicles, but he thinks he can just drive 4 hours and have his car maintained, he won't even change his own oil or spark plugs, he wants me to take a whole holiday weekend and work on his car. I have a life and a family too! And I think that my older brother should be able to maintain his own vehicle or PAY to have it maintained or just not drive one at all, what do you guys have to say about all this, mind you, I am his baby SISTER.

Tell him you want to enjoy your Easter and have a break, suggest he pays someone or waits until you feel like it

Well, I told my Dad today that if my brother is willing to pay me $10 per hour and buy all the parts that I will work on my brothers car, but you can bet your boots that he ain't willing to pay me either. So i guess The car will just fall apart. Thank you for your response.
