Default Is it safe to use a car jack to change my 2000 honda civic oil?

i have a 2000 honda civic and the jack that came with it... would it be safe to change its oil with only the jack the car came with it holding it up... it will probably be in the garage when i do it and i know where i can recycle the old oil... thanks for all answers

once you get the car jacked up get some wood pieces or some blocks to put under there in case the something should happen to the jack. It's best to be safe than sorry (dead)

Not unless you have some decent jack stands to put under it.















NEVER work or get under a vehicle supported by only a jack. NEVER!

is it worth the trouble, you can find someone who will change it for you, and if the jack came with the car, don't you expect that it would work















































get someone to do it for you.

"NEVER" use just any jack. Always use "GOOD" jack stands.















It only takes once to have a car fall on you.

Not a good Idea, If ya can find some way of securing the vehicle like a block of concrete under near where you put the jack ( under the car ) to catch it if it falls, that way ya won't have to sacrifice your head if the car falls, and I have seen them fall on alot of people !!































Good luck, Hope this helps !!
