    Default Trolley jack question!

    Ive been given a new trolley jack, It was brought some time ago but not really used so when it did get used it was found to be faulty hence me getting it free, the problem is when pumped for the first inch its fine then wont go past that point, if slightly helped by hand after 2/3 inches its fine! & pumps & holds right to its limit, took hydraulics apart cleaned etc & new oil but still the same.

    Does it have enough oil in it?

    Maybe the seal is gone.

    If your using axle stands once lifted, then not really a problem.
    Not telling your granny how to suck eggs but never work on a car using a jack alone !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
