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.

I have a rear axle seal leakage.


Only if that is where the leak is.
Would be good to determine that before dismantling.
Leaks could be from the front seal, from the differential cover, from the fill plug, or from the vent.
Some differential covers are using sealant instead of a gasket these days.
A leak indicated from the front seal ( where the drive shaft is attached) might tell you to just keep adding oil, as it could be really expensive to fix.
God bless your efforts.

How do you replace rear oil seal in 1994 Isuzu Standard tranmission


Chockblock front wheels to prevent truck rolling, and jack vehicle up and place a jackstand under frame to prevent vehicle falling. Remove driveshaft, seal is now visible to be pried out for new one to be lightly tapped into place with a rubber mallet or hammer, along with a wooden block, taking care to keep new seal straight while replacing. replace driveshaft and check fluid level, lower vehicle and remove chockblocks.

First replace the seal and case cover gasket, then top up diff oil, test to see if noisy is eliminated , because since the oil is leaking it might be running dry.

Got a leak from the rear differential on my truck, where the drive shaft goes in what made it leak


Hello Barry.
There is a flange attached to the pinion shaft that drives the gears inside the differential.
This flange is held to the shaft by a large nut threaded onto the pinion shaft.
On the flange there is a machined surface the seal rides on to retain oil inside the differential.
Sometimes rust can develop on this surface and tear the seal. Also debris could damage it as well.
Or in a worst case scenario the bearing that the pinion shaft turns on goes bad and allows the flange to wobble.
It will take an experienced mechanic a little over an hour to replace the seal.
The large nut on the pinion flange needs to be properly torqued and takes a proper torque wrench to do it.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Grease and differential oil inside left rear drum


Not that difficult, raise and support the rear of the truck and remove the wheels. Might as well replace both sides so you know you have new seals, remove the differential cover and drain the fluid. Once differential is opened and cleaned , remove the axle "C" clip that hold the axle in place and slide the axle out. Once the axle is out remove the wheel seal and clean around the area. This would be a good time to replace the wheel bearing too since you have access to them and there not that expensive. Install the new bearing and seal, note make sure you oiled the bearing and seal before installing it back and take care when installing the axle back in and "C: clip. Use RTV silicon gasket maker to seal the differential cover and wheels back on and lower. If your lazy like i am, you can drain the differential fluid and replace it with a 50/50 mix with gear oil and Lucas engine oil additives. That may stop the leak and get you a few more miles. You gear oil is (ford 75W-140) (Dana 80W-90)and the capacity is 2.6 liters and 3.5 liters if you have the 10.25 Ring gear. Good luck and hope this helps.
