Not sure what the "four bolt apparatus" is but most differentials have a fill plug about half way up on them. You need a suction gun which resembles a grease gun w/ a hose on it that you use to suck the lube out. Usually fill to the bottom of the fill hole then.

    remove bottom drain plug bottom differential to drain out lubricant.go to auto parts store buy a bottle differential lubricant the bottle has a long spout made on it so you can pour lubricant in the fiil plug hole.dont over fill the fluid level should be below fill hole about 1/2 inch.

    Not all diffs have a drain plug. If that\'s the case, then the two options are to suck it out as I previously suggested or remove the cover and let it all drain out..

When should you change the transmission fluid and filter in a 2005 Chevrolet trailblazer


The fluid should be changed at the 100K mark. The front and rear differential fluids should also be changed at that mileage. The transfer case fluid needs to be changed every 50K miles and only use GM Autotrak II gear oil.

Replace fluid rear differential


Changing the fluid in your rear differential is a pretty simple process if u are mechanically inclined. First thing you need to do is chalk ur front wheels and get the rear end jacked up and supported on jack stands. If your truck sits high enough and you are comfortable working under it without jacking it up u could probably skip that step. Next have a container to catch the existing fluid when u take the plate off and set it under the differential. Start by removing the bottom screws from the plate bolted to the rear of the differential. Do not remove the bolts on the upper part of the plate, rather loosen them only so that the fluid will drain into ur container and not gush out over the ground. After the fluid is all drained remove the plate completely and clean out remaining fluid being caeful not to deposit any foreign material into differential in the process. Clean off all traces of old gasket from mating surface of plate. Be careful not to gouge the metal. Install new gasket(I have done many times and always just use gasket maker works fine for me) then install plate. After you have it all back together, u should see a bolt that takes a 3/8 extension head on the upper rear off your differential. Remove that bolt and that is where you will add your new fluid. Fill until the fluid level is just to that hole. You can tell if u put your pinky in and can feel the fluid right there. I hope that this helps you to get your fluid done. Let me know if I left anything out and I will be glad to help, thanks.

Service four wheel drive light is on, what does that mean?


Your transmission/transfer case needs to be flushed and the fluid replaced along with any needed screens or filters that are recommended by GM.
Your owners manual should have info on the manufacturers reccomendations.

Our 2003 trailblazer has 63,000 miles. we have followed the scheduled maintenance and changed oil every 3000 miles. We have been told that we need to have the brake fluid, coolant system, front and rear...


I would do the coolant, but the others can go a lot longer.
The differential fluids should not be expensive, but the brakes can be expensive and not really warranted in my opinion.

Fig. 6: Exploded view of the power steering pump mounting-late-model 4.3L engines (1993-96 shown)

Fig. 7: Typical power steering pump hose routing-1996 shown


The following procedure requires the use of the GM Puller tool No. J-29785-A (1985-92), Puller J-25034-B (1993-96) or equivalent, and the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety.
  2. For 1996 vehicles, remove the air cleaner assembly for access.
  3. For 1993-96 vehicles, remove the hood latch and the upper fan shroud.
  4. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
  5. Remove the power steering pump pulley using a suitable puller tool.
  6. Remove the power steering pump retaining bolts, then reposition the pump as necessary for access to the hoses.
  7. Position a fluid catch pan under the power steering pump.
  8. Remove the hoses from the power steering pump and drain the excess fluid into the catch pan.
WARNING Be sure to cap all openings in the pump hydraulic system to prevent excessive fluid spillage and the possibility of system contamination.
  1. Remove the power steering pump from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the pump to the vehicle, then uncap and connect the pump hoses.
  2. Install the steering pump to the retaining bracket, then secure using the retaining bolts. Tighten the power steering pump-to-bracket bolts to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm). For 1996 vehicles, tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
On early-model vehicles where the drive belt is tensioned by pivoting the power steering pump assembly, do NOT fully tighten the mounting bolts at this time, since you will just have to loosen them again for belt installation and adjustment.
  1. Install the pump pulley using the GM Pulley Installer tool No. J-25033-B or equivalent. Press the drive pulley onto the power steering pump.
  2. Hand-tighten the pivot bolt, the adjusting bolt and the washer.
  3. Install the drive belt. On early-model vehicles so equipped, properly adjust the belt tension. For details on belt installation and tension adjustment.
  4. For 1993-96 vehicles install the upper fan shroud and the hood latch assembly.
  5. For 1996 vehicles, install the air cleaner assembly.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the power steering reservoir and bleed the power steering system.
  8. Remove the jackstands and carefully lower the vehicle.
  9. Road test the vehicle, then check and top-off the power steering fluid.

hope this help (remember rated this post) Good luck.
