Automotive Jack will not lift if there is any weight on it

I can jack up jack without any pressure on it and it will stay, but it will not jack up any further. There is no fluid leaking from it and I can't hear any air leaking. i do not have a manual.

Power steering fluid leaking?


Robert, Use a strong flashlight and check from top and bottom. If you need to jack vehicle to check underneath the engine, please secure it with jack stands (don't rely on the floor jack or your vehicle's tire change jack). If you don't see evidence and have not lost any fluid then there is nothing wrong. Any visible "wetness" is acceptable as long as it is not dripping or running when engine is running. Check all your fluids and make sure it is serviced per manufacture recommendations or your owners manual. Check it again after one month, if the fluid level is fine, then the car is fine. Also place a cardboard on the floor where you park overnight and see if you have any evidence. Sometimes during oil changes, depending of filter location, droplets are common as well as from the oil pan drain plug during removal. As long as it does not elak after installation, you are fine.

Ive had a power steering leak for a little while at first it was small and didnt loss much fluid, but now im lossing power steering fluid in just one day. How do I know if it is a hose that is leaking or...


You need to raise the car, put jack stands underneath for safety and spray some type of degreaser to clean off the oil on the hoses, pump, frame, etc., then wash off with a hose or pressure washer (best). Let everything dry and then have another person crank up the engine while you are underneath looking at pump and hose (be sure your jack stands are securely holding up the car before climbing underneath). If you're losing a lot of fluid each day you should easily be able to see your leak at the pump or hose connections. If it's gotten steadily worse, it probably is the pump seals getting worse.

Loud roaring from front right side goes away during a left curve then comes back when you straghten up


This is caused by a bad wheel bearing. to locate the right wheel jack the front wheels up and check for the wheel being loose, or with car jacked up in the air with front wheel off the ground put it in drive and see if you can listen for the noise, you may be right with the right front but just double check, good luck, hope this is helpful.

Leaking antifreeze, but not from the water pump? fluid is rust colored.


What you do is pressure test the cooling system. The pressure will cause fluid or air to come out at your leak. The rust does not sound good. Fix the leak (s), flush system, and replace coolant. Consider "mechanic in a can" rust inhibiter, but stay away from stop leak, fix leaks properly. the cooling system just need to work correctly, it builds up near 15 lbs of pressure and stop leak cannot properly stop that pressure.

Power steering leaks from the cap


could be overfull
remove excess to the full mark on the dipstick
could be a problem power steering pump bypassing excessive oil back to the reservoir under pressure and heating and expanding the oil
take it to an accredited power steering service center and have a pressure test done on the pump
the humming noise indicates a valve problem leaking under pressure

Leaking Antifreeze


What you need to do is pressure test the system.Jack the van up and see if you can pinpoint where the leak is coming from.Always use jack stands when the vehicle is jacked up and block the wheels.You can check the motor area also.Sometimes the coolant will run down the side and it looks like it is leaking from the bottom.Good luck.
