Dear Lift Point Locater......Porsche's lift points are located on the sides of the vehicle where the pinch welds are.....kinda hard to spot by the untrained eyeball.....however......I have a much better idea for you.Rather than risking the potential damage to the side of the vehicle if you don't grab the pinch weld just right........invest in a set of durable plastic ramps from you local autoparts store or can expect to pay a very small bill of $25-$35 for a set of nice ramps. And I would be much more comfortable with you crawlin under there to change your petroleum. You will have plenty of room to get under there and also you will have the vehicle up in the air quicker and easier......simply place them in front of your tires and drive up on them...clearance should not be an issue if the car is at stock ride height...Thx for you time... I HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Just had oil changed 2002 continental have vibration and low roar sound

OK, 1st of all the oil change has nothing to do with vibrations or low roar noise. So not to worry about that. However I suspect that you have an exhaust system issue. Check to see if there is a leak. Also check to see if the car lift did any damage to you exhaust system when oil changed. This might well be the case...damaged when on lift to change oil...
Hope this helps

How do I change my oil, where is my oil filter and how do I get to both of these things?

You can almost always find some place like Goodyear, Firestone, Jiffy Lube or Midas advertising an oil change for just slightly more than you can buy the oil and filter. Why would you want to do this yourself? Especially since the first things you need are a jack capable of lifting the front of the car and some jack stands to support it while you are under there. You also need an oil filter wrench and common hand tools. If you don't already have these things, changing your own oil is not the way to save money Then there's the problem of something to catch the oil and where to dispose of it. But if you insist, once you get under there the drain plug will be at the lowest point on the engine. Take a look at the new filter, then look up from the bottom of the engine on either side, you'll see it.

Need to change oilpan

first of course drain the oil then proceed to take the bolts that hold the pan out no special order you may need to take aloose the motor mounts in order for the pan to clear the crossmember .if this needs to be done you will have to probably have to raise the engine enough to get the clearance needed. make sure you use a wood or rubber block to support the pulley or what ever your lift point is going to be so as not to damage anything(put the block between the jack used to raised the engine and the engine itself) do not lift by the oil pan or trans pan. hope this helps you please rate me thank you.
