I'll try to make this short. It is three questions, the picture below aids with two of them. Please note the car in the picture is not mine I got it off the Perrin website.
1. I was jacking up my car at what I believed to be the correct point (the one in the center under the engine) but I couldn't find any pictures for reference and now I am second guessing myself. Is circle #1 the right location?
2. I believe circle #2 is the oil pan but I am not certain; anyhow its slightly dented (maybe pushed in 1/4" at the most and its a roundish dent, no sharp corners). I checked thoroughly for leaks there are none, it has maintained its oil level fine; and on a side note I don't think it was something I did probably the former owner going over a bump too fast as the car is really low. Is this something that is urgent or is it something that could wait for a bit? (as long as no more damage occurs and no leaks appear)
3. I got the wheels about an inch off the ground and then every time I pushed down the handle I heard a soft but steady hiss (like pressure being released from something) and once I got to the bottom and let up my hand for a second it would stop. I checked the release valve on the jack ($30 hydraulic 2 ton cheapy jack btw) but I have a feeling thats probably what it was; however if I was wrong about the jacking point...well...in that case I may have caused some damage *bangs head into wall*
Help is greatly appreciated. And yes I have searched the forums (and others) no reference to these questions was found (by me anyway).
