Cannot locate jack or spare tyre on V/W Sharron

Many new cars do not come with spare tires and of course the jack either. Call the dealer, but if you can't find something that big it is a sure bet it isn't' there.

How do I fix a sagging floor? The center beam of my 1940's house is a light ga. Railroad track. It measures 4x4 and is about 30' long. Is there a way of working around the track?

You can jack the floor up from underneath with a temporary wall, or steel jack posts, and install a beam with posts on either side of the track. You can also, install permanent jack posts under the rail, spaced 6' apart, and slowly jack each one up creating level to the track and your home. Best to consult someone qualified on your area, before you attempt any of this work yourself. Unless you are qualified, you can seriously damage the structure of your home attempting any of this without qualified help or support. I'm a carpenter by trade and I've seen everything from sagging homes to homes collapse , because someone thought they knew what they were doing. Be careful, patient, and get help :)
Good luck!

Put jack stands uder a 2001 Lincoln LS

place the trolley jack under the front cross member . (The big bit that connects the side frames under the sump). Lift as high as possible and place the jack stands under the chassis ( moulded rails ) where the sub-frame meets . Then place the trolley jack under the rear diff and lift as high as possible Place the jack stands under the chassis at the front of the springs or track rods By using these positions you will have the cabin securely jacked up with all the wheels free to remove or to work on. Before going under try rocking the vehicle hard to ensure that it will not move off the stands.

Big red 10 ton body jack would not extend ram

problems come to mind Firstly the release valve will not tighten to seat the ball to stop the oil from recirculating and so not pump up the ram. Second there is no oil in the jack reservoir to pump up with. I would check oil level first.

How to remove the damper bolt on a 1997 honda

safely raise & support vehicle, lock down flywheel, remove wheel, get a really big breaker bar 1/2 inch drive. a long extension . the apropriate 6-point socket & a jack for all these tools. assemble the socket/extension/breaker bar, set onto the bolt on the crankshaft, support the extension close to the head of the breaker bar with the extra jack stand & use this extra leverage to break the bolt loose by pushing down towards the ground on the breaker bar using the jack stand as a fulcrum. You MUST lock down the flywheel with the right tools for this operation to work. Do disable all electrical before you start this operation to avoid injury from accidental starting of the vehicle.

Hey there Gator,

From Florida? I was on the left coast for a while, Tampa, Clearwater, St. Pete. Anyway, to biznis.

As a fellow operator of a large vehicle, I feel your pain.f94aa9d.jpg

Keep in mind, this is a BIG Vehicle with a BIG Engine (6.6liter equals about 400 c.i., yours is 6.7).

That said, if this is a recent development, please comment me back with any event or symptoms that may ahave happened at the same time. In the meantime, there are things to check.

  • Tires at proper pressure
  • Air filter clean (or new)
  • Get that big engine tuned up (new plugs). Think about a High Energy Ignition Coil)
  • Oil change and lube
  • Brake adjustment (Emergency brake too)
  • Keep track of your mileage, document trips too to check on increase or decrease.
Practices that increase mileage:
  • Keep it between 55-65 on highways
  • Don't gun it from a stop. Jack Rabbit starts EAT fuel in a heavy vehicle like a Suburban.
  • Plan your trips to consolidate travel
  • Use A/C sparingly any time you aren't at highway speeds.
  • Empty the vehicle of unnecessary cargo (lighten it up)
  • If you use drive-thru's, turn off engine if waiting in a slow line. For every two minutes waiting, you're losing nearly a mile per gallon
Anyway, let me know,
