    FSAE or Formula Hybrid? My school is trying to get a car up for this year's competition, but we're barely scrapping enough cash to do so.

    So Nissan has made it difficult for me to lift my car...

    Oh man there's a lot of hate here. I mentioned getting a speeding ticket here and scratching my car once and PB is on my ass. How long as it been? Two years? And the negative rep for asking a legitimate question? Man, PB you must really hate me.

    Slightly off-topic. Mobil One Synthetic is the way to go. It's amazing to see the car warm up in like 2 seconds.

    I didn't use it to hold the car up; I had it on jack stands. I figure it the jack stands would hold up ( I had the car on 4 7-ton jack standst, but I also had some cinder blocks lying around from the construction work being done around the house and stuck them under the front floor jack point...

    That's ridiculous :lol:. I mean if you're just working on the wheel assembly I guess that wouldn't be too much a of a problem. If the wood splits, at least you won't be under the car. I am really paranoid; I stacked a couple of cinder blocks under the center-front jack point.

    Yeah I tried. The Murano's clearance isn't as high as one would think. I need to get it off the ground another inch or two in order to get under it.

    Thanks Spectre. I appreciate the help, but I think I'm going to take it up another notch and mill out some adapters from some stock. I managed to make temporary adapters out of some wood and get my oil changed, but it's not going to support the weight of a 2-ton car.

    There is also another issue with the ramps too. The car won't be level and there's a good chance the oil won't drain properly.

    I can jack it up, but I can't set my jack stands under the frame rail because of the lip. As the for the ramps, I'm probably not going to buy them because I could easily just get a few pieces of stacked wood and drive on top of them. Sometime in the future, I'm probably going to change a tire...

    I could buy those ramps, but you can't rotate tires with those things :) Besides, I just spent about $150 for four stands and a jack, and those ramps are ridiculously expensive.

    So I plan on changing my car oil some time this week and purchased a floor jack and some jack stands, however this is one niggling obstacle in my way. There is this flange (a lip, whatever you want to call it) that requires a jack stand adapter; if you don't have one and try to use a set a jack...

    Cold cranking: is it bad for my car?

    So is it bad to let the car warm up to drive? Unfortunately, my car isn't blessed with an oil pressure gauge, only oil temperature gauge. I don't know if anyone notices this in their car, but whenever I start driving the instant I turn the car on, it feels a bit sluggish. I usually just start...
