When a person has a flat tire on their car they use a lug wrench to loosen the nuts on the wheel bolts, a jack to raise the car, get the spare from the trunk or other storage position and then you change the flat (Amer).

Hope that helps.

Stojak warsztatowy =
Kobyłka warsztatowa =
Podstawka warsztatowa =
Podstawka pod samochód

so by the looks of it you dont have a word for the axle stand you would use, stojak is the closest i can get, is that correct.

"Warsztatowy" stands for an axle stand. In Polish, mechanisms are often named after the place where they are used instead of their main functional feature or principle when they are standard equipment anyway. You can use additional information like "regulowany" for clarity.

Regulowany stojak warsztatowy. I am not a car mechanic but remember how someone was using these terms.

Nastawny stojak warsztatowy

Yeah, regulowany means that you can regulate it while something is standing on it while NASTAWNY means that you have to set it to a position before you put something on it. It is a pro term that I have just found on car repair related sites.

I'm not sure about the "street" English language (since I'm not a native speaker), and those cited words above comes most likely from an average intelligent, young individual, so my 'smooth' translation would be:

kozaku ... a ty taki boss

don't be such a smartass

wez sie odwal

bugger off
