How do i check and add transmission fluid to my 2000 pontiac sunfire


There is a bolt on the bottom of the transmission to remove to add/check fluid level. It must be done with the vehicle running and on a level surface (on a vehicle lift at shop). It can't be done with a floor jack because the vehicle won't be level anymore. There is a small (10mm I think) bolt on the on the side of the transmission side that faces towards the engine, just pull it out and if fluid trickles out then it is full. If not, get some dextron 3 and fill it. It's probably a good idea to just let a shop do this because there isn't an easy way for someone to fill it without the proper equipment.

My Sears 3 ton high lift floor jack will raise but it won't lift any weight. The jack is only 3-4 years old and it has not had much use. I can't find my owners manual, and I want to know what I...


Sounds like it needs some hydraulic fluid added.Look for a rubber plug or screw on the side of the hydroelectric cylinder where the ram comes out.Buy a zoom spout oilier and save the oil.Use some solvent and clean it out.Add some hydraulic fluid and fill until it starts to come out.You may be able to find an oil can that will work for you. Leave the jack in the closed position when you fill it.

If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.

Height of a factory jack for a jeep grand cherokee laredo 2004. I recently discovered the jack was missing - how high must the replacement jack go (scizzor or Bottle) necessary to thange a tire


If dont remember bad, at '02 came with scissors, after '03 and upper came with bottle.

This is my suggest, 6-21" lift, seems like a good size for the WJ. Moderately priced.
Michelin 2½-Ton Jack $89.99 (CDN)
* Hydraulic Speedy Lift is a patented design - the fastest way to reach car chassis
* 6" - 21" maximum height is ideal for SUVs
* Wider jack stance increases overall stability of the jack
* Unique design combines aesthetics and strength in the overall jack design
* Universal joint ensures smooth release and secure valve operation from any pumping angle
* Storage tray is ideal for keeping track of small parts or hardware
* Saddle pad helps prevent damage to vehicle during lifting

Keep in mind the use that your Jeep is very important, also if your like to practice off-road tours.

Hope this helps.

How do we replace the fuel pump in a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu?


Welcome to Fixya

Here's the procedure on how to install/replace fuel pump for your Chevy malibu.


•1
Raise the rear of the vehicle and place jack stands under the pinch welds on the lower body rocker panel. There are reinforced areas here that are designed to support the weight of the vehicle. Lower the car onto the jack stands and remove the floor jack. Unscrew the fuel filler cap to help relieve pressure that builds up in the tank due to fuel evaporation.
•2
Disconnect the plastic fuel lines leading from the tank to the front of the vehicle by pushing in on the line while depressing the quick disconnect fittings. Unplug the vapor return line and the fuel pump's electrical connector. Remove the fuel filler neck hose by loosening the hose clamps with a screwdriver and prying the hose loose with a large pry bar.
•3
Remove the two rubber exhaust system hangers located near the rear of the exhaust. This will allow the exhaust to move when removing the fuel tank. Remove the metal heat shield from the bottom of the car.
•4
Place the floor jack under the fuel tank, with a large flat piece of wood between the jack and the tank, and lift the tank slightly. This will take the weight of the tank off the straps attaching the tank to the undercarriage of the car. Remove the straps holding the tank to the body of the car, and lower the fuel tank. Slide the fuel tank past the exhaust system, and out from underneath the car.
•5
Remove the fuel pump assembly by turning the spring-loaded retaining ring with the hammer and chisel. Lift the whole assembly out of the fuel tank by lifting the assembly up and then rotating it over to clear the level sensor arm. Unsnap the top, and separate the plastic housing to gain access to the fuel pump. Remove the fuel pump electrical connector, and remove the pump from the assembly by pushing the pump up and over until it clears the assembly.
•6
Install the new pump into the assembly using the new rubber coupler and the new vibration cushion supplied with the pump. Plug the electrical connector into the new pump, and snap the two halves of the plastic housing back together. Install the assembly back into the tank, and rotate the spring-loaded retainer using the hammer and chisel.
•7
Reposition the tank under the car, and lift the tank into place with the floor jack. Install and tighten the retaining straps, heat shield and filler neck hose clamps. Reinstall the exhaust system hangers. Plug the electrical connector back into the assembly. Reconnect the fuel lines and vapor line.
•8
Lower the vehicle off the jack stands and prime the fuel system by cycling the ignition key from off to run a few times. Start the engine and check for leaks

Thank you for using Fixya!

How do i get the spare tire to come down


If the spare tire does not lower to the ground,the secondary latch is engaged
causing the tire not to lower Your vehicle has an underbody-mounted tire hoist
assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare
tire from suddenly falling off your vehicle if the cable holding the spare tire
is damaged.For the secondary latch to work,the tire must be stored with the
valve stem pointing up.
1.Check under the vehicle to see if the cable is visible.If it is not visible
proceed to Step 6.
2.If visible,first try to tighten the cable by turning the wheel wrench clockwise
until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice.You cannot overtighten the cable.
3.Loosen the cable by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise three or four turns.
4.Repeat this procedure at least two times.If the spare tire lowers to the ground
continue with Step 2 of removing the Spare.
5.Turn the wrench counterclockwise until approximately 6 inches (15 cm) of cable is
exposed.
6.Attach the jack handle,extension and the wheel wrench to the jack and place it under
the vehicle towards the front of the rear bumper.Position the center lift point of the
jack under the center of the spare tire.
7.Turn the wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the end fitting.
8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
in place.
9.Lower the jack by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise.Keep lowering the jack
until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.
10.Disconnect the jack handle from the jack and carefully remove the jack.Use one hand
to push against the spare while firmly pulling the jack out from under the spare tire
with the other hand.

Floor jack will not lift car off jack stand


It sounds like you have MAXED out the absolute HEIGHT that the jack is CAPABLE of extending to.
Try this to test this theory; Remember though before you !!EVER!! attempt to raise a vehicle with a jack, make sure that the vehicle is on FIRM LEVEL ground and that the JACK is likewise. Even if you have to slowely drive your vehicle a short distance in order to attain level ground, DO IT. THIMK! It could mean the difference between whether or not you live to tell about the flat you changed.
Get yourself a piece of 'treated' 2"x10"x 2' lumber which you will put in the trunk of your vehicle with your jack. It is now 'married' to your jack.
Chock the Tires on the opposite side of the vehicle that you will be working on. The weight of your vehicle will be redistributed when you jack up the vehicle. Even though you will have it in 'Park' you do NOT want it to move any at all. The chocks will prevent this.
Place that piece of lumber beneath your vehicle below the 'jack point'.
Place your jack squarely on this piece of lumber and slowly crank the jack up, keeping your eye on the jack point where the jack is in contact, until the tire is off the ground about 1/2 inch, any higher and you are just wasting energy and time. Once the tire leaves the ground it is high enough to remove from the vehicle. You may have to raise the vehicle up a bit more in order to replace the flat with a good tire. Be SAFE, Start low and work your way higher.
The REASON for the piece of lumber under the jack is to distribute the weight that is now bearing on the jack so that it does not depress into the ground. It also provides you with a stable platform to begin with and gives you TWO more inches of height to use with the jack if needed. Use it even if you are on asphalt because depending on the consistency of the asphalt material and how HOT is is from the current weather, the jack could settle a bit into the asphalt and this procedure could prevent this and keep you safe.
If you are using jackstands, use a piece of treated 3/4"x10" square, plywood under it as well to keep it from settling into the ground. Raise the vehicle only high enough to slip the jackstand under the portion of the vehicle where you will be placing it and still allow the tire to be removed.
Be SAFE and live to tell the tale. :)
