If you're talking about the scissors jack, most of them can handle about 1.5 tons, which is about 3000 lbs. You'd be cutting it a little close by using the scissors jack. In any case, I hope you have jack stands and a better jack (if it's the scissors jack you have).
What type of work are you planning to do?

If it's only going to be used in an emergency like changing a flat on the side of the road, it should be fine. However, don't use it if you plan on doing anything other than that.

^ Take that advice.

Get yourself a 2 ton jack and some jack stands.

temp = no problem

However I suggest you go to a junk yard to pick one up. They should be plenty cheap.
But for a while I was carrying my hand jack in my trunk cause I kept getting flat's on #1 thanks to constructions ..

I used to keep a small floor jack and a pair of jack stands in my trunk because my car would break down so often...

^ Drive down to mitchell island and hunt there. Bunch of junk yards there with many options to choose from. They all close around 5, and aren't normally open on weekends.
