Possible that your axle(s) are worn and have excessive play. I've seen it quite a few times.

Is it on acceleration or when you brake?

If it is when you brake, it is also possible that your rotors may be warped.

Holden Rodeo 4x4 petrol 2001 V6 what is the lubricant quantities for the diffs, gear box & transfer case. Also what weights of oil


manual transmission --- 80w-90 for the gearbox and transfer case
diff is 80-90 oep if a straight diff and different if a limited slip diff gear box is around the 2.5 ltrs as is the diff each
LiSiD oil can be used in LiSiD diffs and straight diffs but straight oil cannot be used in lisid diffs
the transfer case uses the same as the box but the quantity you will have to check in the lubrication section of the user manual
many user manuals recommend a lighter straight oil for transfer cases and boxes ( 30 straight oil) but I find that the light oil promotes bearing wear and gear problems as the oil squeezes out under load

I have a 2004 silverado 1500 and have clunking in rear end and was told I have excessive back lash in ring and pinion gears how do I fix that and how much would it cost?


suggest that you talk with a diff reconditioning specialist center
if you have excessive pinion to ring gear clearance the diff will be making terrible noises not a clunk
what you have is worn side gear washers in the diff carrier and that is not essential to repair unless you get diff noise on turning corners
All diffs have play in the diffs that most people say is pinion /ring gear problems when it is not
the clunk noise comes from engaging a gear and the diff housing reacts to the load ( radius rod bushes , stabilizer bar bushes etc), the side gears take up the clearance, and the
"U " joints or cv joints take any wear
Best advice is--- if all you have is a clunk ( check everything outside the diff first) and the diff runs quiet under acceleration or deceleration, DON'T fix what ain't broken

My car has a diff whining noise. I am going to sell the car and don't want to spend a lot of money on it, as I plan to buy a new car in six months of so.


You don't say what type of car you have and what mileage it has run so far.

Most likely the whine is from a very worn pinion gear.

Other than replacing or rebuilding the diff there is nothing you can do other than drain the old diff oil and replace it with new oil. ONLY use the manufacturer specified differential oil in the correct grade. This may quieten the noise a little but any difference will be minimal. It may help extend the life of the worn diff a little and it will get rid of any debris suspended in the old diff oil..

The diff drain plugs are often magnetic to pick up metal to prevent it being recirculated so check if there is much in the way of metal filings on the drain plug when it is removed.

Without disassembling the diff no one can tell you how long it may last but they are expensive to replace so I would be replacing the vehicle sooner rather than later if you don't want to replace the diff.

Until you sell the car, drive it gently when moving off from a stop and when accelerating to minimise stress on the diff.

If you are going to replace the diff oil yourself the car will need to be level and ensure you loosen and remove the diff oil filler plug before you remove the oil drain plug. If you drain the oil and the filler plug is stuck you will be in trouble. It will be a lot easier to just buy the correct diff oil and take the car to a reliable mechanic to drain and refill the diff for you while the car is up on a lift/hoist.

I have a 97 vzj95 prado 3.4lt v6 Recently the front diff seized and I've replaced it but now on turns while accelerating I'm hearing a clunk from the rear diff... Is this a wind up issue? Thanks


Yes it is a wind up of the axles and not the drive shafts. Your car has a limited slip diff and it is locking up.
When you are accelerating the diff locks up and your wheels are rotating at different rates while turning. This causes the axles to twist until the pressure causes the Limited Slip Diff to slip.
My guess would be that someone has changed the diff oil with non Limited Slip Diff oil.

My car shutters when I drive over snow It drives straight on the highway whith no vibraton


The vibration is from your AWD vehicle rear/center/front diff locking because it detects wheelspin. It is shifting power to the wheel with grip and feels weird. Slowing down will reduce this feeling, but if you are not getting a warning light, that is my diagnosis. Once back on solid ground the automatic AWD unlocks and the car/SUV returns to normal operation.

HOW DO I REMOVE REAR DIFF FROM MY 1994 LAND ROVER DISCO


Remove the halfshafts, the rear propshaft, the ring of bolts holding the diff in the axle and pull it out, drain the oil first.
But i must say, if you need help on how to remove the diff, then you obviously have no mechanical knowledge,, so what are you doing pulling out the diff. do you know how to repair and set up diffs ?

I have a 00 audi a4 quattro, occasionally while taking a right hand turn ususlly from a stop, there is a clicking noise I believe to be comming from rear right? But the main problem seems to be vibartion...


the clicking and vibration in the front end sounds like a tie rod in need of replacement possibly due to potholes. Could be a bent alloy wheel from the same as well which could be causing all of the above problems
