how do you jack up a volvo using a floor jack

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Myra, Almost any mechanical job you might tackle may require that you are able to safely jack the effected vehicle to a position where you can either: access components under the vehicle, remove one or more wheel(s), raise the vehicle to lower vehicle components when otherwise impossible (ie. transmission). As a disclaimer, we always recommend that you read your vehicle

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Myra, I would suggest that you check your owner's manual as to where to jack up the vehicle safely. If you are doing something other than replacing a tire, you should probably have a technician do the work for you. You never work under a vehicle using only a floor jack. You must use jack stands to work safely. Again, if you are unfamiliar with how to use them, have a technician do the work on your vehicle. I've heard too many horror stories about people being crushed under their vehicle. Be careful. Lori Johnson
