I bought a 2011 Versa SL Hatchback last week. I will be performing my own oil changes. I've yet to explore the underbelly - if I had, maybe I might not be asking his question.

Is there is good/safe lift point for a floorjack at the front end? Or, am I relegated to lifting from the side with a scissor-type jack?

One more question: I've always been one to disable the ignition system, to enable cranking the engine for 10-15 seconds before starting the engine. I never did like that second or two sound coming from the engine before oil pressure built up. If this can be easily done, would someone please describe the location and appearance of the disconnect point?

Thanks ~ james

you can use a floor jack if you want, i got a piece of 4x4 lumber and cut a slot in it to fit the jack rail, so i don't crush it or the floor board when lifting the car
