Bottom Lines On Changing A Flat Tire & Jumpstarting A Battery

Chula Vista Drivers, I’m Pretty Sure Murphy Didn’t Have a Driver’s License

If Murphy could’ve seen me last Friday, he would’ve gotten quite a laugh. Not only did I have a flat tire, but my battery decided to go the way of the Dodo.
Luckily, I’m quite well versed in changing flat tires. First, you’ve got to make sure both you and your car are out of harm’s way. Then, you remove the hubcap, use the lug wrench and slightly loosen the lug nuts, position the jack under your car at the proper spot (consult your car’s manual), jack it up, remove the lug nuts all the way and the flat tire with them, put on the spare, and tighten the lug nuts. That’s it – you’re ready to go!

After I got that out of the way I called a neighbor to the rescue, popped both hoods, made sure both cars were off, attached the ends of the red cable to the “+” side of both batteries, attached the black cable to the “-” side of the good battery and its other end to a section of unpainted metal on my dead car. And wham – my car returned to life!
