Disconnect the heater hoses from the water pump and the intake manifold. Get a compressor and blow out the hose (put the air hose into the the hose that came off the mainfold. then flush the system and replace the antifreeze.

There is no drain plug. You have to take cover off to drain. After it has drained, clean cover surface and housing surface, if gasget is ok not mared or broken you can reuse it with a thin layer of silacone, if its tore up to bad clean old gasget off real good and you can either get a new gasget or use silacone, and put it back on and refill it thru filler plug, and fill until it comes out filler hole, if you use silacone make sure you use enought, like a quarter to a half inch wide bead and let it set a while before you put the rearend grease back in maybe a half hour or so. That way it has enought time to set up.

remove cover.take off back wheels and calipers (or drums).turn differential to where you see small bolt/pin (5/16) horizontally (same direction as axles)on right side of differential.remove bolt/pin.A large pin (about 5"long 3/4"diameter) should slide out differential with ease ( you may have to tap one side of the large pin).turn differential to completely remove large pin.turn differential so you can see in the view window.push each axles in (they'll go in about 1 1/2"each) You may hear one of the axle C-clips fall.If not use a small telescoping magnet to remove the C-clips from the axles through the differential window.pull each axle out about 10"so they are out of the diff.Now remove the cap bolts(4-5/8"bolts) and remove the caps(mark the caps so they go in excactly the way they came out.be careful the diff might fall out.If not you may have to use a long bar or 2x4 to wedge and pry the differential out. Have a basket/crate w/rags in it to catch the diff.TIP:If you are removing the ring gear from the diff, the bolts are left handed bolts meaning you have to turn them clockwise to loosen and counter clockwise to tighten ; )

Gear oil leaking from rear of drive shaft


You need to replace the seal for the pinion. ou need to remove the drive shaft off the pinion yoke thene you will find a big nut in the center of the yoke that has to be removed but before you remove the nut check to see if there is any kind of play on the yoke if there is play the pinion bearing will have to be replaced if that is the case your better off having a mechanic do the job. If there is no play remove the nut pull the yoke off replace the seal and reinstall in reverse order.

I have a 2000 gmc jimmy and its 4x4. whens its in 2 wheel drive theres a loud grinding noise from the rear end and it wont go. i put it in 4wd and the noise stops and i am able to move. what could be the...


sounds like your rear differential has some internals gone or going bad if it wont move at all in two wheel drive then its probably gone sorry. the planetary and spider gears need replacement or the splines on the rear axles are sheared off take you diff cover off( be ready for about half a gallon of gear oil to spill out.) look real good at the axle shafts and gears try to move stuff around. if there is excessive play that could be your problem. hope this helps

Where do you add the rear end fluid to a 2001 gmc Jimmy


On the Differential look at the rear of the Differential near the top and you will see a plug. You remove the plug and check the level by putting your finger into the hole. If the fluid touches the bottom of your finger it is at the proper level. If not, add fluid until it does.

How do i check fluid in in rearend on a 1998 GMC jimmy


On most differentials, there is a plug. It will have a square recess in the plug. Using a 3/8" ratchet and extension, place the extension in the plug and turn counter-clockwise to remove. (No socket required, just the extension.)

On most vehicles, the oil should be just below the level of the hole. I have relatively small hands, I just use my little finger to check the level of oil.

In past, I always used 90 weight gear oil to bring level of, but depending on your differential, you may need a special oil. (My 2001 Tahoe with locking differential used a synthetic oil. The dimwits at the oil change place added regular 90 weight oil, even after I told them not to, had to have dealer drain, and replace.)

Bad oil leak driver side front fender


There is an adapter for the oil filter with 2 lines coming out of it above the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front differential. The O ring on these will go sometimes causing loss of oil. Also check the 2 lines for leaks and cracks.
