Re: Where Do I Fill Oil Into My Car Jack?
Usually only oil has to be added if the jack will not pump up, not down. They go down either by added retraction springs or by the weight of what they were lifting.
Anyway, look for a small rubber plug about 1/2" in diameter on the hydraulic unit, lay the unit on it's side so when the rubber plug is removed the oil won't run out. Once you remove the plug, fill it up with hydraulic jack oil from an auto parts store. Put the plug back in, you may have to work the jack to purge air bubbles, by pumping it up and down a few times.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

umm if you have to ask you probably shouldn't try it yourself. But If you have everything needed to change your oil and are willing and able then here's what you do.... First: you will need and oil pan, funnel, wrench that fits your oil plug, new oil filter and possibly something to help remove your old oil filter, car jack stands/jack to lift your car. Second: lift your car up enough to get under it using the jack, place oil pan under car's oil plug. Next: remove oil plug let oil drain. Next: remove oil filter Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug. Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.
I am going to assume you are raising the body with the jack. If so, you would have to raise the car most of the capacity of the jack ( 6 - 12 inches) to get the wheel off the ground. This is normal. If you have a floor jack you might be able to put it under the spindle that holds the hub bearing.
1.Jack up the vehicle
2.Place a rag under the supercharger bolt hold you will remove
3. Remove supercharger bolt, some oil may come out but not much.
4.**** out the old oil
5. Lower the car back down
6.Fill the supercharger oil
7.First time driving after change
You either need to top up the oil, or change the oil. Both of these are easy to do. You'll need some high-grade jack oil, an Allen wrench, a rag or two, and a funnel.
1.) Relieve the pressure and lower the jack arm all the way down. 2.) Remove the tool tray from between the two rear wheels. 3.) Wipe the oil fill plug clean. (You don't want any gunk or debris falling inside.) 4.) Remove the plug with the Allen wrench.
Look inside. If the oil level is at or below the inner cylinder wall, you'll need to add oil. Don't go more than 3/16"-1/4" above the inner cylinder wall.
With the pressure still off, gently raise & lower the arm two or three times. Check and adjust your oil level again. Then screw the plug back in & tighten it with your Allen wrench.
Everything OK? Great. If not, repeat 1 through 4, then lay the jack on its side & drain ALL the oil out (into a container). When it's empty, set it upright & fill it. Again, raise & lower the arm several times.
Replace the plug, tighten it, then test. Raise the jack all the way up, then lower it all the way down, without any load on it. Repeat this two more times. (This helps to dissipate the air bubbles in the oil.) It should now be ready to use.
5/8 socket the three front ones are easy to get but there is a trick for the rear ones ,jack car up set on stands ,chock wheels for safety plus e on with a hydraulic jack and a piece of wood so you won't damage oil pan jack motor up and take of the two motor mounds or just the bolts that hold them in place then lower motor it should lean forward now you have more room to play with , good luck
first you will check your owners manual for the required specification of what weight ( 10w30) oil to use and then the fill capacity.( 5.quarts ) also the auto parts store will tell you those as well. I always buy one extra quart. Once you have oil and filter, warm car up for 3-5 minutes, (this will help oil drain faster and easier) once car is warm shut of motor,block rear wheels jack the front of car up enough to slide under it. BLOCK car or support with jack stands.put a drain pan under car, remove the oil drain plug on the bottom or side of the oil pan.( make sure your catch pan will hold at least 6-7 quarts of fluid. once oil has stopped draining replace drain plug, now remove the oil filter, unscrew counterclockwise, lube new oil filter seal with oil, screw on to oil housing clockwise rotation, hand tighten. fill motor with oil to recommended fill capacity.start car , check for leaks around filter, if no leaks shut car off and lower car to ground, check oil on dipstick and wipe off,insert and check again,fill to fill line on dipstik and your done.
The oil pan on a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora holds all of the oil for the engine and also protects the oil sump pump. The pan hangs low to the ground, making it prone to damage from rock. Set the jack underneath the front crossmember of the car. Set the jack underneath the transmission and lift it up until it just contacts the pan.Unbolt the oil pan from the bottom of the engine using the 3/8-inch ratchet, extension and sockets. Lower the pan off of the engine and away from the car.You must first remove the transmision, then the exhaust crossover pipe, then the oil pan.------------

Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels.
Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.
the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the
bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler
lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust
y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.
off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to
scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe
the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote
adhesion, and apply the new gasket.
the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level
sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.
Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.
Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
go under the car..if u cant go inside( jus kiddin :p) lift the front part of the car with a jack!!make sure u keep some support at the rear end to stop the movement.Remove the bolt provided at the bottom of the your car..Do this process very fast dude cause oil leaks spontaneously from this.....make sure your car s not hot by that time.now ur car's front position must be in raised .....so now lower the jack so that oil sqeezes out.....now look for a small can..it s the oil filter.Just remove the oil filter.now look into ur oil filter u ll find some gasket around it inside.take it out...use the oil u drained out to wet the gasket and re fit it in the slot!!now screw the new oil filter on to the car(if new). the car u ve usually ve 4 quarts of oil i guess...fill 3.5 quarts of oil and start the engine.now tighten the plug....check for the leaks......make proper adjustments.... thats it....
good luck dude......
