Re: Jacking up car

Alright. Im just starting out with this whole all out DIY thing. Also, would I need some type of block or something to help me out while lifting up the car?

Re: Jacking up car

I have the OM. I tried the jack points that, but thought those were the points to use the jack stands. That's where my confusion is. I read the OM, maybe like a million times over the past 1.5...

Re: lug nuts and breaker bar

My insurance policy has towing covered. Also, I would like to reduce any amount of weight as possible. And, I'll see how much it costs to replace the 19 year old spare.

Re: Jacking up car

Re: lug nuts and breaker bar

It was probably the tech at Honda who did it. Are you sure that the standard procedure is to use an impact gun and then use a torque wrench? I was able to loosen two-three lug nuts on the Nissan with...

Re: Coolant leak

Is that even coolant leaking to begin with? Sounds like its some other fluid that is leaking there. You should do a EGR valve clean once and see what the leak is, as it doesn't look like coolant to...
