    A couple not so common service questions

    First, is it OK to do your fluid changes (oil, diff, trans) with the front 2 tires up on gator ramps? I've read somewhere that your car should be perfectly level, but I'm not small enough to crawl under the car.

    Second, what kind of washer goes around the plugs for the transmission? I read you need to replace them everytime you do it, but im sure as hell not going to go under there and pull it out to look.

    Thanks

    There's nothing wrong with putting the car on ramps to cahnge the oil. It does increase the amount of oil that will remain in the pan but the amount is miniscule.

    Can't help you with the Tranny washer. Go to the dealer and pick some up.

    Thanks. I guess I'll go to the dealer for the washer, but it's a pain because it's like 40 minutes from my house.
