SOURCE: Rear Differential Seal Leak

No. This is a cheap repair even if you take to Chrysler or any repair facility. All they do is drop the drive line and remove the pinion nut and remove the seal and tap the new one into place. Should only take them about an hour at most to do this.

SOURCE: spider gears fell on rear differential 95 ford explorer

It's not easy to put them back, but if you get the side gears in position with the axles bumped out as far as you can, the smaller spider gears can be "walked" into place. Try having your buddy rotate one of the wheels slowly until each one fits in. It's tricky but you'll get it.

SOURCE: Ford Explorer leaking rear differential fluid

Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.

Turn whhel real sharp on 2005 ford explorer left rear wheel wants to lockundefined


If you have four wheel drive, turning the wheels sharply at a slow speed when in 4X4 mode can result in a wheel binding. The other possibilities are low lubricant in the rear differential, wrong lubricant in the rear differential if it has been replaced, or a bad differential.

1996 Ford Explorer Rear Gear Oil Fill Plug Location


Make sure to check all around the differential. Sometimes it's a rubber plug on the diff. Cover, or sometimes it is a bolt on backside (side facing front of vehicle) and it is a bolt with a square end in it that you would simply insert a ratchet without a socket into.

Ford Explorer Sportrac 2001. some kind of oil leaking from the backend in the middle of the back tires.just wondering what it was and how to fix it


If the leak is in the middle facing the back of truck most likely the rear end (differential) cover or gasket is leaking. If it is leaking in the front of the rear end it is most likely a rear pinion seal. Spray brake & parts cleaner to clean area. Let it dry & see if it is leaking in the front towards driveshaft or the rear towards rear bumper.

2004 Explorer: Rear differential cover is leaking, how do I fix i...


put flat pan under the housing remove the bolts holding the cover usually 10 or 12 (1/2 or #12 metric) bolts? allow the rear end grease to drain... then scape off the old gasket clean with brake cleaner spray install either new gasket or form one with oil resistant silicone put the cover back on , dont refill the fliud for at least 12 hours if using silicone. Also check the front driveshaft rear end yoke seal....they sometimes leak making the illusion of a rear end pan cover leak...if that is leaking you remove the shaft carefully...remove the large yoke retaining nut, replace the press in seal...be sure retaining yoke nut is properly torqued when reinstalling .

Rear Diffrantial Leak 98' Ford Explorer


It should be that easy if the leak is from the gasket. If it from the seal, you will have to remove the drive shaft from the differential and remove the seal and put in a new one. Either way, the repair is fairly easy.
