Ford Mid-Size Cars 1971-1985 Repair Guide



The service jack that comes with your car should ONLY be used for changing a flat tire. It should NEVER be used to raise the car for any other purpose.

Hydraulic, screw or scissors jacks of adequate lifting capacity are satisfactory for raising the vehicle; jackstands should then be used to support it. Drive-on trestles or ramps are also a handy and safe way to both raise and support the car.
