Hey Chris, I have been reading your post and it sounds like you know what you are talking about. I too have a floor jack that will not pick up one wheel of my truck, but it will go up with no load. I filled it with hydraulic oil, but as far as bleeding, I am not familiar as to how to do this if that is the problem. This jack is only a couple years old at best. I just bought it from a guy hoping I could fix it. The model number is 480578. Is this something I could rebuild myself and where would I get the parts. I thank You very much in advance and hope you and your family have a safe and warm new year. My email is email@example.com and I would appreciate any info you could offer,

Center the floor jack's armature under the transmission pan of the transmission.Use a ratchet and open-end wrenches to loosen the transmission mount bolts. Raise the floor jack until the bolts of the rubber, shock-absorbing mounts can be removed with the mounts. Use the floor jack to lift the transmission high enough off the cross member to insert the new rubber mounts. Insert a transmission mount bolt from the bottom and lower the floor
jack until the transmission is seated on top of the rubber shock
absorber of the mount. Repeat the process for the other transmission bolt.Here you can find more quality auto parts http://www.carpartswarehouse.com/otherautoparts.html

How to Replace Wheel Lug Nuts (DIY Complexity: Easy / Time: 1.5 hours)
Parts: 1. Lug Nut
Tools: 1. Floor Jack 2. Jack Stand Set 3. Ball Peen Hammer 4. Tire Iron 5. Socket Set
Steps: Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a solid level surface to ensure that it does not roll or lean when raised. o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
Step 2 Break the lug nuts loose but do not remove. Using a floor jack, raise up the front of the vehicle. o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.
Step 3 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working. o Tip: The pinch welds or the frame rails are the two best locations for vehicle support.
Step 4 Remove the lugs nuts. Inspect the threads on the wheel studs.
Step 5 Install the new lug nuts by hand making sure they thread properly.
Step 6 Tighten each lug nut in a star pattern. Lower the vehicle to the ground and torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer’s specifications. o Tip: Refer to the owner's manual for the exact location on the vehicle.
Step 7 Road test the vehicle to verify lug nut repair.
