Good ways to raise a car safely
In order to locate parts you want to repair and maintain, a car jack must raise your vehicle. It is dangerous to operate on a car that isn’t properly supported. So, you must know how car repair is managed safely. While working under a car, never tamper with the floor jack, or else the car can slide off the jack and you get crushed.
1. HAVE YOUR CAR PREPARED
Park the car on a surface that is flat, solid and level. Pull out any barriers that may block your way out from under the car. Even when raising the car wheels, still, you should set the parking brake.
2. HAVE YOUR WHEEL CHOCKS PLACED
Situate a wheel chock or any solid object in front of and behind the wheel that is set diagonal from your point of lifting. Chock the rear wheel on the passenger’s side if raising the front end starting at driver’s side.
3. HAVE YOUR JACK POSITIONED
Refer to your owner’s manual on how to properly life your car in the right place. In case you’re using a car’s jack, examine the jack and car for special notches or locaters.
4. HAVE YOR CAR LIFTED
Using the jack wrench, twist the jack and laggardly raise the vehicle. The higher you lift a car, the rockier it can be. Therefore, don’t lift the car higher than it’s safety zone needed for repair. The car should be very secure, so pay attention to how it balances on the jack.
5. HAVE A SAFETY STAND IN PLACE
Put a safety stand under the car when it’s at a good enough height. Try not to pinch fuel, exhaust, or electrical lines that run under the car. Until the safety stand can hold the car’s weight, keep on lowering jack.
6. HAVE THE SAFETY STAND TESTED
Give the car a light push or determine how stable the jack stand is. The jack stand should not be rickety. This is before you get under the car.
7. HAVE THE SECOND JACK STAND INSTALLED
Using the safety stands in pairs put a single stand on each side of either car axle. Raising the car’s other side and installing a second stand is a repeated process. Before operating underneath, again—retest the two stands for stability and strength.
8. ELIMINATE THE CAR FROM JACK STANDS
After finishing repair and maintenance, still having in place all wheel chocks, use the jack to lift the car slightly enough to eliminate a single safety stand, at one time, and slowly bring the vehicle to ground level
