Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Chevy

Safety concerns with car ramps.

Alot of people feel just a little bit uneasy when it come to getting under a car when on car ramps. A little trick is to drive the car on the ramps, put blocks, or wheel chucks behind the grounded tires. Then using a jack, jack one of the ramped tires up enough to remove its ramp. Reverse that ramp and then lower the vehicle down. It can't roll down the ramps because it is wheel locked inplace. Please though reverse that prcedure to drive it off the ramps.

Please note, I selected Chevy as the manufacturer only because 'any' is not an option

how do i locate the transmission on a 2002 saturn ion to check the levels

easiest thing to do is check the manual that came with the car. otherwise if you don't have one look for a dipstick marked transmission if there's none you'll have to get it up on a hoist or ramp so you can get under the vehicle while it's level and find a level plug on the side or front of the transmission itself. with this you have to remove the plug and if a bit of fluid doesn't dribble out when you take it out, then put your finger in and feel for the oil. if you can't feel it then you have to top it up through that hole.

i am having alot of heater problems.I just flushed the heater core out but still no hot hair its warm but not hot

How do the hoses going into the firewall on engine side under hood feel ? They should be reasonably same temperature. If one is hot, and other is quite a bit cooler, then you may have blockage still in core. If they feel close to same (hot) then blend/air door may be stuck. Can you hear things moving under dash when switched from cold to hot, and hot to cold? Does the air coming out get hotter if you rev engine a little and hold it there?
