Okay, here's the thing.
You come here asking for help with your English, but you ask for help with your "letta"? That shows that you're not taking your writing seriously.

Your letter has a run-on sentence. Worse, it makes no effort to say why I should hire you. What do you offer me? Why are you a match for the position I have open? What will you contribute to my business?

A cover letter explains why you would be a good candidate. It doesn't just say that you want to work for them - obviously you do, or you wouldn't be writing.

I think you might want to google "Cover letters" or look on monster.com or careerbuilder.com for some pointers.

Yo dawg, in today's economy and with the job market so tight you'll be competing against folks with bachelor's degrees to get a job as an auto mechanic. And you can bet those candidates will be sending a properly worded cover letter. Fo' shizzle.

Here are some tips for composing a good cover letter. And here is a sample cover letter for an application as an auto mechanic.

And for heaven's sake, make sure to pull up your pants and remove your baseball cap for the job interview.
