Default Jack points

I need to do an oil change but I'm too big to fit under the car. I do have a 3.5 ton jack though, and was wondering if someone could point me to the jack points so I can lift this sucker up and change the darn oil!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

There's a sticky thread called new or returning Saturn owners in the S Series General forum. Scan the Richpin videos on how to change oil through the wheel well.

Block the tires.

Put a piece of 2 x 4 on top of the jack.

Slide jack and wood under the passenger front suspension, from the front.

There is a flat spot there, the 2 x 4 keeps you from scratching or bending it.

Jack car up...

PUT A JACK STAND BEHIND THE FRONT WHEEL!
There is a crimp point that shows you where to put the jack stand...

Ramps are awesome. If mine ever rust out I'd get a pair of these. $40 minus 20% for a total of $32.

I always use the frame behind the front subframe to jack the car up to get to the drain bolt, and get the oil filter through the wheel well.

Think about getting a fumoto (?) drain valve every so often, but have a hard time cracking the wallet open

All good spots above. The only other one I've used that's not outlined in the photo is putting the jack on the subframe itself. Always use wood in between the jack pad and frame.
