How to repair a floor jack that leaks fluid
This video will show you the most common way to repair a floor jack that is leaking fluid and thus won't lift. I am repairing a 3-ton floor jack, but most jacks are built similar. The O-ring location may be on the male or female side of the piston and the bleeding procedure should be in your owner's manual or you can do as shown in the video. Don't forget to put jack oil on the new o-ring and put some jack oil on the piston when you reinstall it.
NEW... on 10/2/2016 I filmed a new filling & bleeding procedure that worked even faster and got the jack back to 100%... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4X0VcZo81MA
