Ok, here is my problem
My daughter's car had the check engine light on for a long time and that makes it fail emission inspections. Since she lives in a city she needs good inspection stickers cause she parks on the street.
Took it to a guy that got recommended by word of mouth. He is having a hell of a time getting it to pass,he keeps telling me everyday for a 3-4 days it will be ready which I tell her and then it is not.
The iching has been telling me all thru this that it's the cars fault for having the light on for such a lenght of time.
Meanwhile she made plans to go somewhere tomorrow but we don't have the car back and she wants to know if she should take a bus. Which will add to expenses spend money she doesn't really have.And I was going to go bring her the car and had plans of my own in her city.
I asked will i get car tomorrow 29.5-7
This I took as a yes finally, I have had the car with the guy for two weeks and this is the closest yes I have gotten.
I think it says Don't expect to make good on your plans at least you are getting the car.

What should I tell her
33.2-44
Not sure what this means. She just called and was very upset about her plans going up in smoke. I told her I didn't know what she should do, but that I thought I would get the car sometime tomorrow.
SHe asked how I knew that and the only way I knew that is through the i ching so I said I don't know how I know. Basically I let her get mad at me, even though I am in the middle and am more put out by this then she is cause I wait everyday the mechanic tells me he will bring me the car. Blah.

Shoud she take bus to NYC tomorrow?
34.3.4.6-41
line 3-empty display of power-d/n go by bus
line 4 from Lise says
9 at 4: Determination auspicious. Regrets disappear. The fence breaks open, no entanglement. The vigor of a big cart's axle.
Sparingly used power brings the greatest results. Forcing a matter will mess up things and waste forces. Use whatever possibility presents itself, use levers, pull strings, get a hammer instead of using your fist. There are many ways of making a big power from a little force.

Now this corresponds to the situation with the car because the mechanic locks his gate every night and the car is (in his garage) behind that fence.
line 6 Lise says:
One has to measure one’s strength, control one's courage or self-will, judge a position. Hardship is necessary to build up character.
I think this is about her having to judge the situation for herself without my help.
leading to decrease which I can read either way. Decrease hope that the car is coming in time or go spend the money on the bus
Wilhelm 41:
There is no need
of presenting false appearances to God. Even with slender means, the
sentiment of the heart can be expressed.

She wants to go to her friends birthday party so just cause she can't get there in a car she should still go or he knows she wants to be there

Thus the superior man controls his anger
And restrains his instincts.

She was definitely angry , her instincts seemed to be saying take the bus.

I think she shouldn't take the bus and wait and I will bring the car and it will be later than they wanted to leave but whatever...or maybe they shouldn't go to NY at all.

Well if anyone can help I would appreciate.
But I will know tomorrow what the reality is of the 29-7 reading and let you know.
I guess this is for my peace of mind cause i can't tell her I got my info from an i ching reading so whatever...

I only have input about the check engine light because this has happened to me, and I'm familiar with the whole inspection sticker situation. It takes me a long time to "swallow" a hexagram, and since you need an answer quickly, I know somebody else who can read them faster than me could help you better. With that said, if a car has been on the diagnostic machine and nothing is found, a mechanic told me that that check engine light can just be turned off in order to pass inspection.

Organize Yourself, You are in the Pit

Ok, here is my problem

H7 means you need to organize yourself, and H29 means generally you are in a chasm, possibly in danger. Line 5 means that the water is not going to get any higher, you won't drown, the situation won't get any worse. Just be still and the situation will resolve.

Thanks guys,
The check engine light was on for a long time so that's why it's not clearing plus the mechanic works alone so it's a whole big story.
But am getting closer. Car not ready today, but almost. I asked if it would be ready tomorrow,3 no lines so I guess that's good news.
Meanwhile, it snowed here today and when it looked like I might get the car at 2-3pm my daughter still wanted me to bring it to her (70 miles away) I am such a whimp I would have but thank God it wasn't ready cause blah blah blah reason.
She ended up not going to NY cause it was sleeting where she lives also.(She is to the south so the weather is a little more mild).
The 33.2-44 seems to have been negotiated correctly, i didn't tell her what to do but I certainly didn't encourage her to count on the car . She decided on her own not to go, they were gonna rent a car, circumstances prevented it.
And 34-41I don;t know what that means in a nutshell but no harm done, shegot over not going and was back to being appreciative of my help.
29.5-7
I went down to see the mechanic and he gave me more info, something else (minor) needed to be replaced so am just waiting on that. This guy works 7 days a week so plus he wants the car off his lift so maybe tomorrow. Can't get worse good news.
I wonder if my going down there was helping to organize things somehow?
thanks for the help, I'll update tomorrow evening.

The shop sounds very fishy to me. These are meant to simply plug into a diagnostic computer, which should run a series of tests to determine why the engine light is on. Auto dealers charge as high as $100 for this diagnostic test, a private shop usually charges $20, and several chain auto parts store offer the test free, while you wait. I think this shop is making the problem/danger appear to be worse that it is, that line 5 of 29 means it's not a big problem, and 7 would tell me to take strong decisive action to get the car out of that place.

My son had his vehicle tested for free at a chain store, after his engine light came on. Turned out that he needed a new gas cap, as it was letting air in and interrupting the vacuum. Most often it's an air pollution valve, which is required to be changed every so many miles. A $35 part, or so.

Hmm, the car was diagnosed properly it just is not reading ready and I think the mechanic cause he works relatively alone gets overwhemled.
but anyway
What if I just leave him alone will I get the sticker for the car 26.2.3-27
What if I go in Tuedsday afternoon (busy till then will I get the sticker for the car? 29.4.5-40

Well 29.4 has a window in it and I want the sticker on my window...40 is hastening if we have somewhere to go.
Does that look promising?
