Why rear wheels are locked up but front are not


the first place to check is then rear drive line "U" joints as fail on a regular basis and can be not allowing the shaft to turn properly
T check for diff , jack up one side and engage a gear
if the wheel spins then the diff is turning but if it makes a bad noise (all will rumble a t a low level in this position) the diff will be faulty
It is possible that a joint flange has come loose and the bolts are jamming on the back of the transfer case housing

I own a 2004 Chevy Suburban 1500 Z71. It has 131,000 miles. Just had oil change done at Jiffy Lube.Tech said the front and rear differentials needed repair. Did not bite. I now have heard iintermittent...


check for when the noises occur. check if the noise is when you are going over bumps, rough patches,on acceleration, deceleration, high speed ,slow speed. Check for loose items in the boot /spare wheel well ( jack, spanners etc)
The mechanic should have been specific in showing you the diff problems and I would now ask what diff oil was used in the oil change because if you have limited slip diffs thee is a special oil used.
from your initial description of the noise I am thinking shocky rubbers or suspension rubbers worn or loose.

My Honda 2004 CR-V develops a howling noise from the rear of the car after about 20 miles of driving. I have changed the rear differential fluid, and burnished the differential clutches per Honda Service...


A howling noise from a diff is an indication of the gear mesh( pinion to crown wheel) is not correct. Several reasons being worn pinion bearings--loss of preload on the pinion bearings --- crown wheel carrier bearings failing ---not sufficient preload on the bearings---wear on the teeth from incorrect diff oil in use. or simply wrong diff oil. The grade should be 80w90 OEP for normal or special oil for limited slip diffs.

2002 dodge 1500 rear end making whining nosie


This could be one of several problems: If the noise increases with speed, and you are only hearing it from the rear differential and not the transmission, it could be the rear differential carrier bearings, or rear axle bearings going bad. If you are only hearing the noise upon acceleration or deceleration, the rear differential ring and/or pinion gears may be going bad and the rear differential will need an overhaul. You'll have to get the rear wheels off the ground and see if you can pinpoint the location of the noise with something such as a stethoscope. If it's coming from the rear differential, you'll need to pull the bolts and the cover to determine if the gears are still in good shape, or if there is any pitting. Same with the carrier bearings; if you see pitting/ discoloration, they'll need replacement. If the noise is coming from one side towards the end of the axle shaft near the wheel, it's most likely a axle bearing going bad, and you'll need to pull the wheels, remove the diff. cover to release the C clip which holds the rear axle in place at the differential, and pull the axle out. You also need a special tool with a slide hammer to remove the axle bearing and seal.

This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

Find someone with a point and shoot temperature sensor and check the temp of the outer wheel bearings at either side when the problem appears (drive til problem appears, pull over, and check right away). If one is considerably hotter that is likely the problem. If both the same then try either side of the diff housing. This needs to be done IMMEDIATELY after coming to a stop or the heat will transfer thru the entire housing. If you have no conclusive result you may try an additive with MOS2 but I would check with Dodge first to see if they have an approved diff additive. I am assuming that you have checked the fluid level in the diff housing with vehicle level.
