Sounds like something broke loose versus running over something. There are very few "spare" parts inside a differential. But some have shims, there are rollers in the bearings, and teeth can chip. Depending on whether you have a standard differential or a limited-slip style gives you more or less parts.

What you do not want is an axle shaft sliding out of the axle tube or loose parts breaking more internal parts. There is a possibility that visual inspection inside the housing once the differential pan is removed will give a clear indication of what broke.

But to be totally sure, even with a puncture from road debris, you need to know if teeth are chipped. You also need the proper replacement lube for your style of differential.

There is a very remote chance that full coverage car insurance may consider this Road Hazard damage. You would need a Certified Mechanic or Dealership to take your side.

What tool do i need to tighten bolts on my 2008 Chrysler pt cruiser?


what you need is a 1/4 in drive ratchet 10 mm socket and a extension if pan is leaking it may not help to tighten the bolts. To replace the gasket takes about 3 hours to do. First jack car up place on stands. remove plastic splash shield at drive belts. Remove the structural collar at rear of engine 4 bolts, and side on front of engine 5 bolts. remove strut rod 3 nuts 2 bolts one brace held on with nuts. now pan can come out. clean off pan and block and install new gasket. A 3/8 drive socket set and ratchet is needed in metric size. If doing gasket drain oil first. I like to let them drain overnight when I can its less messy.

How to change Rear differential fluid for 2002 Chevy Suburban


You need to take out the bolts holding the cover on but leave 2 in it one on eather side then pop it open with a flat head screw driver make sure u got an oil pan under it first . Then replace your gasket and put the cover back on, as for filling it there is a bolt on the front side of the axle and its usually a square hole that a 3/8 drive rachet will fit in u stick the rachet in it and take it out. Then you fill it up with the suggested gear oil and the specified amount.

I need to grease or oil my rear axel on my 1983 silverado and don't know where to put the oil or grease... It's a automatic


It depends on which rear end is in your truck. There may be a plug about half way up the back cover on the differential, or it may be on the front passenger side of the rear end. The plug will come out using a 3/8 drive ratchet. Make sure you use a screwdriver or something to clean the hole out before you try to turn it. If you don't get it clean then the ratchet will slip and round the corners of the plug and then it isn't coming out.
Add your oil until it starts to leak out the plug hole. Then it is full and put the plug back in. You need to know if you have a limited slip differential or not. Limited slip takes special oil. Regular rear ends take 80-90 gear oil. Hope this helps.

I need to replace oil pump on a 1988 ford bronco 2


Remove oil pan, making sure to drain oil first. Remove oil pump attaching bolts. Lift off oil pump and withdraw oil pump drive shaft.
INSTALLATION;
Prime the new oil pump by filling either the inlet or outlet port with engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute oil within the pump body. Insert oil pump drive shaft into block dwith the pointed end facing inward. The pointed end is closest to the pressed-on flange. Place oil pump into position with a new gasket and install attaching screws. Tighten the screws to 15-22 foot pounds of tourque. Clean and install the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly with a new gasket. Tighten the bolts, then replace the oil pan.
Oil Pan;
Clean of any debris and replace gasket. Fit the oil pan bolts and tighten in two steps. Start from the rear/left hand side and tighten first, then tighten the bolt in the front/right side. Alternate from rear to front, working from back to front and front to back.

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 .

New oil pan gasket leaks at the rear.


Try again use silicon sealant where needed eg ends of rubber All bolt holes in pan need to be "peaned" back (hit with ball hammer) Watch torque settings. Often too tight splits gasket. Clean Dry surface = no oil
Make sure it's not the main seal leaking !
