#1 of 5 Jacking up car for oil changes
Apr 23, 2011 (12:33 pm)
Will do oil and filter change in 2006 Accord . Need to know where to lift besides the front tire changing point. Can use a four wheel floor jack , if best. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Although you can use the center jack point to lift the car, you should not rely on a hydraulic jack to hold the car up. You still need to place jack stands under the car and release the jack so the car is sitting on the stands. I have used the jack points for the stands as shown in the owners manual when using the factory jack.
I only use the stands when I need to remove a tire. For changing oil, I find car ramps are much easier (and faster) to use.

Same as others, I do not rely on hydraulic jack only! Neither can I can use ramps as my 2006 Accord front bumper is too low.
Thank you for your comments.

I just sit a couple of foot and a half or so long pieces of 2x4 in front of the ramps - this raises the bumper enough to clear the ramps for most models.
