Oh mann...I got a problem. Got some plastic ramps from Walmart today, tried to drive the car up the ramps but my car's too low. The front lip spoiler will hit the ramps before the wheels even get to them.
Now...should I get one of those 2-ton hydraulic jack and then place the car on jack-stands instead? Jack-stands will be positioned way behind the front wheels, is that gonna be safe? I was also thinking, if I use this option to lift the car, after I get under to undo the drain-plug, I could lower the car to level it for complete drainage. Then lift it again to put the bolt back on. Whereas, with the ramps, I won't be able to drive the car up and down when the engine oil is drained. My only concern is safety, don't wanna squash my head to save a few bucks!
Also, what is the best tool to use for the filter-housing cover? Could I use one of those belt-grip wrenches made for the regular oil filters?
