I will be throwing away the jack as I do not trust it anymore and I do not care to wait for Torin to reply to my 2 week old email. My next jack will be more expensive but it will be stamped with "Made in USA."
**01/01/13** Update: First went out and bought the Arcan XL325R 3.25 ton jack from Costco for $99! A great jack for a great price. Only downside is weight.
Decided to tear open the Torin and see if I can rebuild it. Very easy to get to the piston:
****Before I began, I wore proper eye protection***
1. Removed vent screw and drained all hydraulic fluid.
2. Removed the 4 allen head bolts holding the reservoir on each side to allow better acccess to the plunger later on.
3. Turned the jack over and removed the bolt that has two flat sides (reduced tension on bolt
by pulling spring towards the bolt). Then removed spring.
4. Removed the eye bolt by turning the eye (do not adjust it's nut). This will separate the plunger from the rod it connects to.
5. Used a flat head screw driver and a light hammer to loosen the large cylinder nut using the two notches on the nut.

However, after 7 months I saw a puddle of oil seeping out from under the jack. It was unusable after that. Turns out it is a fairly common issue with this model as some other sites with reviews show people with the same kind of issues.
I have not found a suitable replacement (that is as easy to use in this price point) but it sucks that a 100 dollar jack would only last 7 months. I have (and relatives as well) 25 dollar autozone specials that come with jackstands that are still going strong after 2-3 years.
If you have this PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ALWAYS use jackstands with this. I don't trust it with my car and I certainly don't trust it with my life.
Anyway, the main issue as many have reported is that it leaks. At first it wasn't so bad, and I just filled it up with new fluid every so often, but it gets progressively worse until it just doesn't work. Don't buy this jack.

Disappointed that the jack I received wasn't red, but other than that it's a great jack for small cars and quick jobs.Published 10 months ago by Teymur E.
I bought this jack ~3 years ago. It completely failed a few months ago. I realize it was out of warranty, but expectation is that it would last. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Ann Theodotou
