    passive causitive

    Hi,

    I will get/have his car repaired.

    I would like to replace 'his car' with 'I' in this sentence, but I don't know exactly how. Can you please help me? I am giving a sentence below.

    -His car will be got/had to repair (by me).

    Is that OK?

    Thanks.

    1. I will get his car repaired = I will make arrangements for his car to be repaired by someone else.
    2. I will have his car repaired = I will make arrangements for his car to be repaired by someone else.

    3. I will repair his car = There is a problem with his car, I am a mechanic and I am going to repair his car.

    4. His car will be repaired by me = passive version of Sentence 3.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
