Today I didn't do my first oil change. Bought a jack pad, jack and axle stands, oil filter, wheel chocks, the lot.

Put the jack under the car and... The jack was too high and wouldn't go under the car. I've bought some ramps instead, hopefully then I can do the oil change.

If you are using the centre front jacking point then you can lift the car an inch or two quite easily so the jack slips under the metal hoop.

I get things started with a scissor jack then when the sill is high enough use a proper jack with a length of 2x2 on it. I then put a pair of bricks under each wheel, then jack it from there until it's high enough for the axle stands

I didn't wait for the outside temperature to drop before I took this picture

I didn't find the rattle on the gearbox end of my V6 when it's hot.
Mind you I am waiting for the poly bushings for the lower engine mount to arrive as that may do the trick. There really isn't much rattle-prone stuff at that end of the engine so if the mount doesn't do the trick it may be exhaust related. I'll check that out when I am underneath with the undertray off on the weekend.

More didn'ts:
The poly bushings didn't arrive and...…
Amazon doesn't have the Bluetooth adapter I want on sale for prime day.
