Also, keep these safety precautions in mind:

  • Be sure the parking brake is set, the engine is off–and if your car has a manual transmission–put the vehicle in gear.
  •  The car should be on level ground to avoid rolling off the jack.
  • Block the opposite wheel with something like a piece of 2×4 lumber or a wheel chock.
  • Next, set the jack properly to the vehicle. Remember to do this in accordance with the owner’s manual to avoid damaging the car.
