    I bought these jack pads to jack up the car at 4 jack points:

    I also bought 7 magnets to stick around oil filter. I am not sure magnetic oil filter will work? I bought the magnets because I replaced oil drain plug with fumoto drain valve. No more magnet at oil drain plug to attract and stick metal particles from oil. Hope magnetic oil filter can work. Please share your experience with magnetic oil filter.

    haha, that was a joke :Rolf:
    I see you are a good guy so I will explain. Most mechanics are ironic and they joke a lot, so Elbow Grease is an idiom for working hard at manual labour. It is a figure of speech for humorously indicating nothing else but manual work is required.

    I searched elbow grease in Amazon and I found this link


    I thought it was a tool for cleaning. Am I so naive? He he. Good to learn a new British idiom "elbow grease" and it took me only 2 days to learn that idiom.

    Few days ago, my friend shared this picture to me. I was still luckier than the guy in this picture. He he.

    The rubber pads are ok, they come in handy at all times.
    Concerning the other thing, the magnets...throw them away, the filter already does its filtration (use a good filter, a known brand or an original part, but the aftermarket obes work the same ), so no need for these.
    They are advertised as being able to attract the metal pieces, but hey ! , if you have metal pieces floating in your engine oil, the oil filter is the least of your worries haha :Smile:
    Use them for sticking nuts and bolts in one place when servicing your carate , haha :Smile:

    Cheers !

    Quick tip, you don't need to jack the car up to put the ramps under, you should be able to just drive up them. Unless your car is 'hellaflush' hth
