Put the jack as close to the tire on the frame as you can. If the jack is too close to the center of the car it wont get the car tire up to the height it needs to be to lift off the ground. Hope that helps!

How do I remove the flat tire


Hi Frank:
- Block the diagonally opposite tire.
- Set the parking brake
- Put the transmission in Park or Low gear.
- Set the jack under the frame or body lift point.
- Jack up until tight against lift point
- Remove trim cover if present
- Use wheel nut wrench to loosen nuts. Do not remove nuts.
- Jack up until wheel off ground.
- Remove wheel nuts.
- Wheel should now be able to be removed. Sometimes they will need a kick to loosen them. If still stuck, reply as a COMMENT to this e-mail and I'll give you some other hints.

Change tire


You need a jack to lift the vehicle high enough to get the tire off and the new one on, you need a lug wrench to loosen and tighten the lug nuts and depending on the rims you might have hub caps that are part of the rim or seperate and if they are seperate, you need something to pry them off with. So the proper way to do this is:
Before you raise it with the jack, take the lug wrench and loosen the lug nuts a little. This is easier when the tire is on the ground because depending on the tire location, it will turn if you lift it. So when the weight is on it, it wont turn. Then you put the jach under the car and near the tire you are lifting and you use the jack to raise the tire. Then finish taking the lug nuts off. Remove the tire and put the new tire on. You may have to raise the jack some more to make it high enough. Put the lug nuts back on tight as you can and lower the car. Then tighten the lug nuts again to be sure. You should tighten lug nuts by skipping them. In other words start with one and tighten it, skip the next one and tighten the third one. When you go all the way around, go to the ones you skipped and tighten those.

I'm changing the stabilizer bar and link bushings. The manual says to raise and support the vehicle, but does not say where to support the vecle at...the frame or the axle. Thanks for the help


You should support the vehicle from the frame. The most common support areas are just behind the front tires on the frame just below the forward most part of the front doors. In the rear just in front of the rear tires below the rear most part of the rear doors.
If you are just lifting the front of the jeep be sure to place blocks behind the rear tires to keep the jeep from rolling off of the jack stands and crushing you.
Remember to be careful and use caution when working under a vehicle.

Good Luck

Jacking point for 1990 Toy Camry center of front.


Probably best to do one side at a time, there is a frame underneath the passenger and drivers sides that you can jack up on, or you can jack up on the pinchweld located behind the tires, though probably best to go on the frame.
Then use jackstands, and should work good. or can just do one side at a time.
