The disabling of a vehicle due to flat tires is always a constant concern for vehicles operators. In dealing with the problems, operators are often faced with the complexity of car jacks, not to mention the traffics hazards and other forms of damages that can occur under the inexperience hands. Standard mechanical car jacks are known as a screw jack, which is sturdy and cumbersome to handle. Other than that, operators can opt for hydraulic jacks that are commercially available in the market with variety of lifting capacities. A research was conducted on improving the portable vehicular hydraulic jack. An effort was made in converting manual operated hydraulic jack into a powered actuation. A reciprocating linkage was introduced in between the hydraulic jack and an electric motor, and thus removing the manual actuation handle. A hand-held controller was also introduced in controlling the lifting process of the jack. The result had shown that with proper engineering analysis, the improved electric powered portable hydraulic jack manage to lift any vehicle with ease, using available power provided by the vehicle battery.
