Irvine Drivers, Changing a Flat Tire and Jump Starting Your Car Has Just Gotten Easy!

Instead of spending money, here are a few pointers on how to accomplish these things by yourselves.

Changing a flat tire:

  • Get your car out of the way. Safety comes first!
  • If you’ve got them, remove the hubcap.
  • Loosen the lug nuts (not all the way!).
  • Get your jack and place it under your car (consult your car manual for the exact position).
  • Hoist your car.
  • Remove the flat tire and replace it with the spare.
  • Tighten the nuts, take down your car, and hit the road!
  • After driving a couple of hundred yards, re-tighten the nuts.

Jump starting your car battery:

  • Get help from someone who’s willing to offer their car for help.
  • Open both cars’ hoods and make sure they’re both turned off.
  • Attach the red cable to the good battery’s plus side and its other side to the dead battery’s plus side.
  • Attach the black cable to the good battery’s minus side and its other end to a section of unpainted metal on the dead car.
  • Turn on the good car, wait a couple of minutes, and turn on the dead car.
