The only place to put gear oil is in the "pumpkin". Otherwise called the rear-end.
To do so, I recommend driving the car backwards onto two ramps to raise the rear end up in the air, this also tilts the car forward.
Between the rear wheels, in the center of the axle, is a large metal container of gears and gear oil.
There should be a large hex-headed bolt less than half-way from the bottom to the top on the rear, facing your back bumper.
This is where the gear oil goes in, but after you take the bolt out, before you add any oil, stick your finger into the hole and try to feel the oil level.
If you can feel it, you don't need any more gear oil to be added.

Dies when put in gear and knocking noise from engine


Knocking noise usually indicated low oil, dying with knocking when put in gear usually means NO oil. Check oil level and fill it. If that works you need to check the oil level every day to see if it is leaking and how fast it is leaking.

Mechanic mistakenly put gear oil in tank, the pump is knocking


What the heck did he think he was putting in the tank? Gear oil is very thick and heavy, so the fuel pump may have a problem as it is meant to pump gas, which is not thick and heavy like gear oil. There was probably some gear oil in the tank while the pump was operating, and it pumped some gear oil for a short time, which damaged it. Insist that the 'mechanic' replace the fuel pump at no cost to you ,and find a new mechanic for future repairs. Good luck.

Gear oil level


There is no way to see the level in the gear box. There should be a small plug somewhere on the top the the gear box. You will need a very small funnel to put in. If the gears are crunching or grinding then try putting a little in. Just stanard auto gear oil will do.

OIL PUMP PROBLEMS


the oil pump is not electronic it is gear drivin . either the gear is bad or the installation was done incorrect. my advice is to start over and sure the rod is seated correctly . you should be able to put the rod in and not be able to spin it. if it spins that means either the gear is completely bad or the rod needs replacing or both. in order to replace the gear you have to remove the timing chain. in your vehicle if you have a distributor and not coil packs you have to remove the distributor and look at the bott of the shaft to see if it is worn out. hope this helps........please rate this.
