Default Tired FAQ

I want to change the fluid in my Transmission and rear diff. What I need to know is it better to lift the car on jack stands or a ramp. If jack stands were should I place them and were should I lift the car from.

Thanks in advance.

I would use 4 jack stands placed at each of the jack points on the sides of the car. The round hard rubber pads are the jack point. If you have a floor jack, you can lift the rear of the car by placing a block of wood between the jack and the rear differential and jack from there. For the front, follow the same procedure with the wood block and jack from the front cross member.

For the vomit issue I would try Febreeze.

If Fabreeze doesn't work, a great deordorizer is ground coffee. Buy a can of ground coffee and spred it on the area. Let it sit for a couple days and you should be all set. It works well. It even gets fish smell out and that is a tough one. GOOD LUCK

Thanks, I am going to try the Fabreeze today and will do the fluid change next weekend. I tried Simplegreen but it just gave it an odd smell.

On to a subject of maintainence, I was going to order my fluids from Bavauto. I have never ordered from them. Are they good from a price and service standpoint.
