2001 Yukon 1500 XL 4 X 4 front differential problem

Thank you Mr Scary for your answer concerning my differential problem with my dealer. So far I never found a drop of oil in my carport concerning that problem. When they say that I have to rebuilt the differential they mention barings and other things. They also told me that I could drive it like that for a little longer but not too much witch got me worried. If I don't see any oil on the ground and no specific warning light on the dash, should I be looking or listening for something particular? Also, as far as you know, is $3,500.00 to change the differential barings too much money?
Again, thank you so much for your help.
Best regards,

Derrick Foy

Front wheel slip on 4 WD Yukon

The 4x4 actuator in the front differential may be bad. The older heat actuators were notorious for failing, but when the electric actuators came out they got much more reliable. But that doesn't mean they are infallible. Have it checked.

2001 Yukon 1500 XL 4 X 4 front differential problem

Sounds like the Common "Ploy for Money" from the Dealership. You can wait on this repair as long as 1---There is not a Pool of Fluid where you Park 2--- Everything work as Normal. It Very well Could be Leaking But, The Mechanics at the Dealership are trained to look for Buildup on ANYTHING on the Undercarriage. A Leak of anykind could cause Buildup of Fluids on the Outside So, Just keep an Eye on it and Make sure that it is not a Bad Leak or Anything is not Functioning as Normal.

Check to see if the power steering pump is still turning. If you have a broken drive belt (serpentine belt or "fan" belt), and the pump doesn't turn, you have no power assist. If the pump is still turning, check the fluid level in the reservoir.
