If you mean the rear diff its actually in the rear diff axle where you refill it.On the back axle there's 2 nuts rhe top being the refill and the bottom being the drain plug.You have to get underneath the car for this.Lots of hassle if you dont have a ramp

Where to put transmission fluid in a 1995 Subaru Legacy


There are 2 dipsticks on the Subaru automatic. The one on the passenger side of the transmission is for differential gear oil, and the one on the driver's side is for ATF. Check with engine running at idle, in park. I believe it uses Dextron II?

I changed my oil last night with my boy friend who does frequent oil changes. Afterwords, my transmission started shifting extremely hard and late. Please help. I do not believe he drained the tranny...


e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

Hi im trying to find where i put transmission oil in my 1990 toyota camry with an inline four


If you are talking about an Automatic Transmission, you pull out the Transmission dip stick and add the transmission fluid though that hole. The capacity for the 1990 Camry is 2.6 Quarts. THEN you have the differential section of the transmissioin. That takes 1.7 Quarts. The differential section has a plug at the bottom of the transmission to drain it and another plug on the side of the transaxle case to fill it. You fill it until it overflows out of the side hole. That is 1.7 Quarts. Both parts of the transmission take Dexron II transmission fluid. It is not the same as Dexron IV and is not backwards compatible. I use Royal Purple Max ATF for both parts of this transmission.

What kind of Transmission Fluid goes in a 1990 Subaru Legacy?


Is it an automatic? if yes use dexron III or use synthetic oil for it if it's a standerd transmission it will depend on weather conditions in your area. Colder climates use lighter grade of oil. So let me know if you have a standard and I can give you the oil viscosity.

I think my axle snapped while i was driving..theres a big grinding noise ...i dont know how to be sure... someone please help


It may be the differential and not the axle it uses its own oil and not the transmission fluid the transmission can show to be full but the differential could be low when ever an axle is taken out and then put back that can happen it has its own fill and drain plugs that have nothing to do with the transmission fluid

Constant whine when driving and wheels lock/skid in sharp turns


One way to track down the noise; since sound travels through metal its hard to pinpoint when driving in the car.
Jack all four wheels off the ground securely (preferably a lift) and run the car with the wheels spinning. Then, without dying, listen for the noise. The dealer can do it for you as well. But sounds like a bad differential.

There are a couple of causes, and the solutions in order of cost are to first change the gear oil in the front and rear differentials and drive a few miles, then the transmission filter and fluid. finally consider "the infamous torque bind" as detailed at http://legacycentral.org/library/torquebind.htm, but a '91 is very likely to have been resolved by changing the differential fluid.
