Trans axle fluid level

Look for check plug on the side of the transmission. (Should be mid way up or higher on the side)
Remove plug and insert pinky finger.
Fluid should be at that level.
If not, add until it starts to pour back out.

Reinstall plug and drive.

Lay down some plastic with some rags over it to catch the mess so you don\'t booger up the driveway and please make sure the brake is on AND you have the tires blocked.

2006 Kia Sedona Shaking & Vibrating Problems

From a quick search online and reading a little in some forums, it looks like the transmission fluid has to meet certain specs, and there may be only a few aftermarket fluids that do. Probably need to check to see if the fluid you used meets the Kia specs. You may have to do a drain and fill at least once if you contaminated it with an incompatible fluid.
You can use cheap carb cleaner to spray around manifold gaskets while the engine is idling to check for leaks. If it sucks the carb cleaner in, the idle will stumble and you found a leak.
Valve cover gasket shouldn't affect engine running. Might cause an oil leak, but that's about it.

Well you could chase it forever due to it blowing back when driving. I would take it to a car wash and wash if off real well underneath and drive it back home. It will show exactly where it's coming from.

When do you change the fluid in the rear differencial. I was told by a mechanic that the rear differencial fluid was low and had metal shavings in it, and that the fluid needed to be changed and that it...

I'd say yes. The differential fluid is often overlooked by oil change technicians, even though it's something that should be topped off periodically.

It probably would cost more than that to repair it once it wears out.

I think that changing the fluid would take about an hour, and depending on the garage, and the labor rate, that they might elect to take the rear cover off of the differential, and drain it that way and replace the fluid once it was put back on. He could inspect the gears while the cover was off and tell you how bad it was.'

Do you hear any clunking or gear mesh noises from the rear when putting it in gear or running the vehicle?

Some mechanics would simply top off the fluid and wait until it wears out, which could be several thousand miles in the future.

Use gear oil for it of the recommended viscosity in the service manual.

Generally thicker than motor oil.

So, adding fluid would cost only the amount of the fluid plus some labor.
A bottle of fluid might cost $9.99 or so depending on where you get it.

You might be able to do this yourself if you crawl under there, remove the fill plug at the top, and just add gear oil. If there isn't enough room you might drive it up on some ramps and then crawl under there.

While in drive, hear clunking and grinding from front differential and axles chatter and hardly spin, drivers side chatters,passenger side spins, put in park, then back in drive and then passenger side...

It sounds like your limited slip differential is in need of a fluid change.
The clutch packs in the axle require a special friction modifier,about 4 ounces added to the axle lube,which fixes the chattering issue.
I'd suggest someone drop the axle diff cover and check or change the
fluid,to see if there are any big metal pcs. in there. If there is no damage,drain the diff fluid and add the friction modifier,only if a SLD..

Note: Only add the friction modifier,if you have a limited slip differential.
Since I can't physically see your vehicle,make sure a mechanic does
it right.

Transmission trouble. fluid looks fine. absolute

It sounds like you might have blown an axle. Especially if there has never been any transmission problems before. You said the fluid looks fine, and by that I take it to mean the fluid is clean and red, and its full. A blown axle will make the click noise, as the splines on the end of the axle are trying to mesh with the splines inside the transmission. The problem could be in the trans., but I'd pull the axles out first and check them, as axles are a lot cheaper and easier to change than a transmission.

Yes, remove the tire and the outer axle nut again and check to see if the axle is in all the way. You can also jack up the car and check to see if the axle is all the way in as well. There shouldn't be a gap between the inner joint and the trans. Check to see if the outer part of the axle is in the hub splines as well.
