The best place for floor jacks is either under the rear axle or on the spot where you would place your OEM jack that came with the car your owners manual should have a diagram that shows you where these spots are.

Bmw shift selenoid transmission


The shift solenoids are located inside the transmission attached to the hydraulic control valve body. To access them you must remove the pan on the bottom of the transmission. It is a very messy job and you will need cleaning supplies, spray brake clean and a torque wrench (and common hand tools or course) to properly tighten everything down. Failure to properly tighten the pan as directed in the service manual will result in a leak. You will need a floor jack to raise the car off the ground and jack stands to support it. BE SAFE.

How do i rotate tires on a 2008 saturn outlook


you lift the car up on jacks so that the tires are off the ground, then you put jack stands in placement. then you loosen ONLY THE BOLTS ON THE TIRE IN THE AIR remove the tire let the car down on to the jack stands, and move the jack to the next and do the same what you do is take the passenger side back tire and switch it with the drivers side front tire. then you take the drivers side back tire and switch it with the passenger side front tire. make sure the bolts are tight as you can get them then you are done. i hope this information helps. Be careful and drive safe!

My brake fluid resevour empied quickly. I did not notice until my brakes hit the floor. I filled the resevour but didn't bleed the brakes. How easy is the process, what tools do I need? I've bleed brakes...


Do not drive this car!!! And do not attempt to bleed the brakes on this car!!!!!
There is a LEAK in the Hydraulic system- that`s why the pedal went to the floor.
Most probable cause is rusted / weak brake lines under beneath the car. Once these lines leak, you have to replace them. This is my guess taking into consideration the age of your car. Other possible causes could other Hydraulic components. Please have your van towed to your repair shop for further inspection and an estimate. If you have CAA or other towing memberships, this will be the right time to tow your van. Adding more fluid or bleeding the brakes will NOT help you here. Hydraulic pressure is lost and repairs must be done to bring back your brake pedal..
Be safe to yourself and other`s -TOW your van....

Jacking points on all Jeep vehicles

Your Jeep was supplied with a jack for emergency road repairs. This jack is fine for changing a flat tire or other short-term procedures not requiring you to go beneath the vehicle. Do not attempt to use the jack on any portions of the vehicle other than specified by the vehicle manufacturer. Always block the diagonally opposite wheel when using a jack.

Placing a floor jack under the rear frame rail at the leaf spring shackle. It may be necessary to place a block of wood between the frame rail and the jack

Supporting the front of the vehicle with jack stands placed under each frame rail


A more convenient way of jacking is the use of a garage or floor jack. You may use the floor jack at the specified points in following the illustrations.

Never place the jack under the radiator, engine or transmission components. Severe and expensive damage will result when the jack is raised. Additionally, never jack under the floorpan or bodywork; the metal will deform

Support the rear of the vehicle using jack stands placed underneath each side of the rear differential (inset photo)
