Tire changing jack location AND using someone elses jack

The jacks for these vehicles are usually under the hood. They are a hydraulic bottle type jack and the tools to operate it are usually located elsewhere in the vehicle. Your owners manual will tell you where everything is and how to use it. The jacks supplied with these vehicles, however, often don't work due to lack of use. You can use a jack from another vehicle as long as it is meant for a truck and not a car. The jack needs to be placed under the axle casing closest to the wheel you are removing. Range Rovers came from the factory with air suspension and jacking any place other than under the axle may result in an air suspension fault. Your vehicle may have been converted to coil springs, but still should be raised under the axle. Just make sure that the part of the jack that contacts the axle cradles it in some way. The factory jacks have a "V" shaped contact point so that the axle will not slide off of the jack while it is in the air. Your best bet is to loosen the lug nuts on the tire you are changing before you jack it up and wait until the vehicle is back on the ground to give the nuts the final tightening. The lug nut size is 1-1/16".

1991geo prism lubrication points

old post, and one of them hard , asking for whole book.
PRIZM , 2nd year, its toyota corolla for sure.
lost the operators guide? chapter 7 covers all that.
buy one ?
as in grease? (points?) or all dino oil lub points.
you need a count, sorry I never do counts..
lubrication is and huge wild field (as in)
we even oil hinges... on all cars.... so.>> why not just read the book yourself, I cant paste in chapter 7 here, sorry.
engine oil is not grease, nor axle lube or transmission
why not ask by category.

suspension (none)
or drive line. sure...
engine and trans yes, and axles yes
the operators guide tells all this.
axle bearings , sure, some bearing can be greased,
some cant, depends on what's there. (sealed bearings happen)
hinges, sure. ,cables yes,
transaxle fluid (lube) sure.
why not ask this in a more clear and simple way
what lubrication points are unique to this car,
answer, none.

read any service guide on any car, and bingo, same.
same for same. FWD car for FWD car.
same... 40million strong. now.

page 7-7 has many lub points, shift linkages
park cable guides
underbody contact points it says.
there are 40million corollas made
all have owners manuasl, Id bet most all of them read the same.
i have 95 manual. here, and see NOTHING unique.
SOP standard operating procedures and service.

Knocking noise when cornering

If you can figure out what side it is coming from, it is probably the velocity joint in the half shaft (drive shaft) going to the wheel. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

The hood catch on my Lexus RX300 will release but will not lift beyond the first 2 inches. Any suggestions?

About the only fix, other than replacing the hood springs, is to lubricate ALL the pivot points in the hood support mechanism.
