Where to add fluid Front Differential 95 Ford Aerostar Van

Where do I add fluid for the front differential in my 95 Ford Aerostar Van?
because I do have the Van For Sale ( $ 600.00...includes TV VCR Tow Package 4x4)...I need to know where it can be added to let people know if it is easy to add or a big pain in the **** (grin) ...Of course the Van has never had a leak for 7 years but then when I post it up for sale suddenly there is a leak by the front left tire...go figure! (yes a mechanic has looked at it and it is the front diff) Thank-You in advance to ANYONE who can answer this for me. Granny Franny....the Van for sale can be seen on Craigs List

SOURCE: leak at rear diff (pinion seal?) 03 4X4 ford ranger

the part is called the pinion flange seal, pull the drive shaft, remove the large nut on the flange the drive shaft connects to and remove the flange, then pry out the old seal and lube the lip of the new seal with motor oil and press it into the opening. The 7.5 hour estimate is way wrong, about 1.5 hours labor and $4 for the part.

SOURCE: Ford Explorer leaking rear differential fluid

Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.

SOURCE: while driving home the over sounds like you've got it covered for now,because those 02sensors may be bad,bank1 or bank2,since you got both on order,you should be allright.just be sure to reset your computer when you replace each electronic sensor.disconnect positive cable from battery for 10minutes after replacement,but did'nt sound like i had to tell you that? hope this helps and thank you for choosing p.s. the misfire may be the 02sensors,whether it's bank1 or bank2 remains unsolved until you've got the codes?also check your main fuse box,just to make sure that you've not got a relay that's loose due to off road or just a bump in the road. thanks!

What is a differential on a 1997 Ford Escort

The differential is inside and part of the transaxle. A transaxle has both the transmission and the differential together as a single unit. On rear wheel drive cars, the differential would be in the rear end- the large center case on the rear axle. With front wheel drive, the differential is incorporated within the transaxle. It is used to keep the front drive wheels turning properly during steering turns.

The differential uses the same oil or fluid as in the transmission/transaxle case-it is all the same piece, not serviced or flushed separately from the transmission, or transaxle as front wheel drive cars are called.

While in drive, hear clunking and grinding from front differential and axles chatter and hardly spin, drivers side chatters,passenger side spins, put in park, then back in drive and then passenger side...

It sounds like your limited slip differential is in need of a fluid change.
The clutch packs in the axle require a special friction modifier,about 4 ounces added to the axle lube,which fixes the chattering issue.
I'd suggest someone drop the axle diff cover and check or change the
fluid,to see if there are any big metal pcs. in there. If there is no damage,drain the diff fluid and add the friction modifier,only if a SLD..

Note: Only add the friction modifier,if you have a limited slip differential.
Since I can't physically see your vehicle,make sure a mechanic does
it right.

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows

It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.
