Question about 1995 Ford Aerostar
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 http://grandrapids.craigslist.org/cto/823444404.html
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.

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.

start with a fluid change.its the cheapest. chk the fluid as it comes out for metal flakes. you may have sticky parts. drain , fill with diesel and turn tires by hand, let sit for half hour and turn the tires again.do this three or four times then drain and replace fluid and modifier.

hey.it 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 fixya.com 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!
