    Default Trolley jack problem..

    Today when I used my trolley jack it wouldnt hold the cars weght, it kept slowly sinking back down. Does this mean that its knackered or does it need topping up with oil, if so what type of oil do i need and where will i get it ???

    why not invest in a bottle jack? A lot easier to carry around than a trolley jack and quick to use and effective.

    And anyway there's certainly no way you should be paying that sort off money out for this type of oil...your not going to be using that amount in a millennium never mind a few weeks...buy a litre of hydrolastic oil ..which is the same stuff...cost = £6.00 ish ..all right.
