Do you see a hole for the plug? It's leaking some oil?

    It is leaking oil, but I don't know if there should be a plug or a bolt that stops the leaking.

  • Steve Papp Mar 24, 2013

    Just drive in a fitting bolt, it should be OK

Im looking for an owners manual for my RV Leveling jacks. I have 1991 American Eagle Diesel Pusher all I know is there are 4 hydraulic fluid leveling jacks


Like any number of items on motorhomes the builder will use what's available at the time; there is no one make of leveling jacks that they used on that coach. However you should be about to contact a Fleetwood dealer and see is they might have a lead for them. American Eagle are the high end coaches by Fleetwood. What is it you're trying to do with your jacks? The jacks themselves are pretty basic; they're like a number of other hydraulic cylinders in the principals of how they operate. There are times that if you look for generic hydraulic parts they are cheaper, or better quality (or lower depending on the original build).

I also have a Michelin 3 1/2 ton jack that will jack up. My guess is that it needs hydraulic fluid but I have no idea where to fill it with fluid. Where do I refill the fluid at on this jack?


MOST JACKS HAVE A BOLT LOOK PLUG TO REFILL THE JACK AND YOU DO IT WITH THE JACK AT THE LOWERS POINT, SOME HAVE A RUBBER PLUG. YOU CAN USE P/S FLUID OR TRANMISSION FLUID TOO TO REFILL IT.

1996 audi cabriolet 2.8 V6 convertible top motor needs fluid how do i add the fluid to the convertible top motor?! and what type of fluid does it need?


Almost all power convertible tops are electric over hydraulic. The ecectric motor runs a hydraulic pump. The pump pushes fluid to the cylinders that work the top. Most are located behind the rear seat backrest. Either remove the rear backrest or access the motor/pump from the trunl. It will be shaped like a cylinder. At one is the electric motor, at the other end is the hydraulic reservoir. At the end of the reservoir is a rubber plug. With the top down, remove the plug and fill it with tran fluid till it over flows. replace the plug and cycle the top up and down as far as it will go. Repeat the process till it will take no more fluid. A turkey baster with a piece of vacuum line makes a good filler tool. With that said, you must find the leak. You may have a leaking pump, hydraulic line or cylinder. RNever replace one line. Do them all. Always replace cylinders in pairs.

How to replace trailing arm bushes


After you have disconnected the brake hydraulic hoses (left & right) remove the brake parking cable. Place a jack on the beam just so that it catches it. Secure the beam with a ratcheting nylon strap or equivalent to the exhaust hanger anchors, not on the rubber hangers. Next you remove the bolts that secure the beam.

You will need
  • VAS 6179 hydraulic foot pump
  • VAS 6180/1 assembly tool
  • VAS 6180/4 (long adapter)
  • VAS 6180/3 adapter
  • 3416/2 press piece
  • VAS 6180/2 Yoke
  • VAG 1383 A jack with VAG 1359/2 adapter
or equivalent special tools to remove (press out) and install (press in). If the bushing is Hydraulic bonded you will need a plastic catch to contain fluid while pressing out.

How do you fill a ac delco hydraulic 3 ton floor jack model 34123 with hydraulic fluid


DONT KNOW WHO BUILT THIS JACK- AC DELCO JUST PUT STICKERS ON IT. TYPICALLY YOU REMOVE A PLASTIC SCREW IN PLUG OR A POP IN RUBBER STOPPER FROM THE TOPSIDE OF THE CYLINDER. WITH THE JACK ALL THE DOWN, FILL IT COMPLETELY UP AND IT SHOULD WORK. SOMETIMES THEY GET AIR IN THEM - JUST LEAVE THE PLUG OUT AND JACK IT UP A FEW TIMES, THEN INSERT PLUG. USUALLY 10 WEIGHT HYD OIL. OR "JACK OIL" AT THE STORE.

Problem removeing brake discs.

Before any service is performed, carefully check the following:
  • Be sure the vehicle is properly centered and secured on stands or a hoist.
  • If the vehicle has antilock brakes, depressurize the system according to the procedures given in the service manual.
  • Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  • Front brake pad replacement begins with removing brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir. If this is not done, the fluid could overflow and spill when the pistons are forced back into the caliper bore, possibly damaging the painted surfaces.
  • Replace the cover.
  • Discard old brake fluid.




  • Raise the car. Make sure it is safely positioned on the lift.
  • If you don't have a lift, use a jack and jack stands.
  • A handle on the jack is moved up and down to raise part of a vehicle and a valve is turned to release the hydraulic pressure in the jack to lower the part. At the end of the jack is a lifting pad.
  • The pad must be positioned under an area of the vehicle's frame or at one of the manufacturer's recommended lift points.
  • Never place the pad under the floorpan or under steering and suspension components, because they can easily be damaged by the weight of the vehicle.
  • Always position the jack so that the wheels of the vehicle can roll as the vehicle is being raised.
  • Never use a lift or jack to move something heavier than it is designed for. Always check the rating before using a lift or jack. If a jack is rated for 2 tons, do not attempt to use it for a job that requires a 5-ton jack. It is dangerous for you and the vehicle.
  • Safety stands, also called jack stands, are supports of various heights that sit on the floor. They are placed under a sturdy chassis member, such as the frame or axle housing, to support the vehicle.
  • Once the safety stands are in position, the hydraulic pressure in the jack should be slowly released until the weight of the vehicle is on the stands. Like jacks, jack stands also have a capacity rating. Always use the correct rating of jack stand.
  • Never move under a vehicle when it is supported by only a hydraulic jack. Rest the vehicle on the safety stands before moving under the vehicle.
  • The jack should be removed after the jack stands are set in place.
  • This eliminates a hazard, such as a jack handle sticking out into a walkway. A jack handle that is bumped or kicked can cause a tripping accident or cause the vehicle to fall.
  • If you use support stands on asphalt, put a piece of thick plywood or a steel plate under the stands.
  • Remove its wheel assemblies.




  • Inspect the brake assembly.
  • Look for signs of fluid leaks, broken or cracked lines, or a damaged break rotor. If a problem is found, correct it before installing the new brake pads.


  • Loosen the bolts and remove the pad locator pins.
  • During servicing, grease, oil, brake fluid, or any other foreign material must be kept off the brake linings, caliper, surfaces of the disc, and external surfaces of the hub. Handle the brake disc and caliper in such a way as to avoid deformation of the disc and nicking or scratching of the brake linings.


  • Lift and rotate the caliper assembly from the rotor.


  • Remove the brake pads from the caliper assembly.




  • Fasten a piece of wire to the car's frame and support the caliper with the wire.
  • When a hydraulic hose is disconnected, plug it to prevent any foreign material from entering.




  • Check the condition of the locating pin insulators and sleeves.

  • Place a piece of wood over the caliper's piston and install a C-clamp over the wood and caliper.
  • Tighten the clamp to force the piston back into its bore.

How do I top up hydraulic clutch fluid on Toyota Hiace diesel?


Try leaving the breather open, then pump the pedal until you are sure pure fluid only is coming thru i.e no air bubbles, then tighten the breather. Then check operation. The clutch should have its own fluid container.
