SOURCE: front differential seal replacement

Go to Auto Zone or some other retail auto parts store and buy a Haynes Repair Manual [about $20] for your make and model. It will show you step by step instructions with pictures on how to repair just about anything on it. Best investment when you are repairing it yourself.

SOURCE: Differential noise when gear is place. in reverse or drive.

If it's only happening when you initially place it in those gears before going forward or reverse, your U-Joint in the rear is going bad. Replace both when you replace the one. This way you don't have to go there again when the fron U-Joint decides to go out. Cheap insurance.

SOURCE: front axle differential on 2000 chevy silverado

Your pickup leaks just like everyone elses. what you need to do is go down to your local parts store and get an inline fuel filter (your local chevy dealer should also have these available just for this problem), preferably see thru then, where your vent runs up the inner fender cut the line about 4 inches down from the vent and install the filter. this will cure your problem

Truck will only drive in 4wd, no power to rear wheels


I would guess your differential. Raise your rear end and try rotating wheel, it should make the other wheel spin the opposite direction. I'd the other wheel doesn't spin, I would say it's your differential.

When my 02 silverado 2500hd is in 4x4 the tires are locked and the truck won't move until I shift back to 2hi. Differential or Encoder Motor?


You can take this with a grain of salt but I am a junior in high school taking auto mechanics and my teacher use to work for a chevrolet dealership where they had a geo tracker come in because it would drive fine until placed in 4 wheel drive. Once placed in 4 wheel it would not move because front and rear differentials were geared differently from factory causing the wheels to lock up. If it has never been able to go into 4 wheel since you have owned it I hope this will help...

How do you service the front trans axle on 2002 silverado


There is a drain plug and a upper fill plug on the front differential, and believe it's in the passenger side. but i could be wrong on the side. The age thing but you can see both of the plug than you need to drain and re-fill.

What fluid do I put in the rear differential for my 01 Ford Explorer Sport?


If you can read the tag on your rear differential cover it will tell you there.
But just in case it's rusted beyond visibility here is what you need.
A traction lock (limited slip) differential takes the synthetic 75w140. You may need some of Fords limited slip additive to prevent the clutch plates from grabbing as well.
Conventional differential takes 80w90 no additive required.
If you are not sure what yours is jack up the rear end, support it properly and block the wheels to keep it from rolling..
If yours is 4 wheel drive make sure it is disengaged and put it in neutral.
Do not start engine. Grab one rear wheel and rotate it. If the wheel on the opposite side rotates the same direction it is traction lock

Servicing the differential at 18,000 miles?


I have a Chevrolet Silverado with 115,000 miles on it and I have never serviced the differentials, there is a check hole on each differentiall (the front and rear) and it is removed with a 3/8 drive ratcher. Stick your finger in the hole after removing the plug (located on the side of the differential NOT THE BOTTOM) the bottom plug is the drain. If you can feel fluid with your finger, you have enough fluid in your differential. Also, if the differentials aren't wet on the outside, they most likely aren't leaking. I would not suggest servcing the differentials.

Why would all the lights come on my 4 wheel drive buttons about ten minutes after i start the truck


My 2003 Silverado has done this several times. This happens (at least on my truck) when I switch from any other mode to 2H when the truck is not moving. The front hubs are locked in the engaged position (actually, it locks inside the front differential) when in 4HI, 4LO, or Auto-Trac. When switching to 2HI, the front hubs try to unlock. The mechanism may bind, especially if they haven't been used for months, like during the summer, and don't completely move to the unlocked position. A switch tells the controller when unlocked, but doesn't always get triggered when the hubs don't get completely disengaged. Usually cycling between 2HI and Auto-Trac while driving will free up the hubs and make prevent the problem of all 4 lights coming on at once. Turning the engine off and then restarting it will usually correct the problem with all 4 lights lit at the same time by resetting the transfer case controller. Then, you will be able to switch from 2HI to Auto-Trac and back to 2HI while driving, as described above, to free up the mechanism. If this doesn't fix it, you will likely have to replace the switch in the front differential that tells when the hubs are completely disengaged, or, more likely, the motor that disengages the hubs/drive axles in the front diff.

4wd wont engage


Chain. And they very rarely break. Have you jacked up the rear wheels and put it in 4wd to see if the front shaft is turning with the rear shaft. This will determine if it is a transfer case problem or a front differential actuator problem.

01 Chevy Silverado 4 X 4 not working. 4WD light


Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.
