Default Jack and Jack stands

Hi everyone,

This might be a dummy question,
where Can I place the jack and jack stands?

I know the owners manual says to place the jack next to the wheels, but I will like to place the jack stands on those places. I don't know where else to place the jack.

The best thing you can do is ask a friend with car exp to come over and show oyu where to place the jack and stands. To much can go wrong if they are NOT in the right place! You do NOT want to get hurt!!
Hope this helps!

I was told I can jack the car at the oil pan and then put the jack stand by the wheels, where the manual indicate.
Do You think I can jack it at the oil pan?

Bad idea on the oil pan. The way I put my car on stands is to jack up the edge of the car about a foot behind the front wheelwell opening. The edge being like where you would use the jack that comes with your spare tire. The frame is so stiff on our cars that this will lift both wheels off the ground. You can then put a stand on the front and back. Then go do the other side the same way. I have to use this method because my car is to low to get a jack under the front. Also there is not a really good place under the front of the car to use.

Who ever told you about the oil pan should NEVER give anyone advice about cars ever again!!!
You will crush the oil pan if you try to jack it up from there!!!! Call a friend who knows something about cars to help you...then you will know.
