They are collecting dust for a reason. Jacks get hydraulic oil.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

May I suggest that if a common floor or bottle jack needs oil there's a problem that probably means you should throw it out OR if a real high end one with parts available go ahead and fix it and ALWAYS use real jack stands on proper surface!
