F350 rear axle

Pulled rear diff oil plug out and found 1 inch of dried stuff stuck to it. Does this mean I might not have posi trac anymore?

Well it means the differential has been low on oil for a while.
Did the "stuff" look like fiber material from clutch discs ?

SOURCE: rear diff problem

The only place you did not mention is the pinion seal (at the yoke where the driveshaft connects) Any leak from a differential should be fairly obvious...clean everything off well and drive it, You should see seepage somewhere. Any grease on the wheels or new fluid where you cleaned will tell you where to look. If it is at the pinion seal, If you haven't done this before, don't...you can disturb the adjustment inside the gear case and damage the gears.

I have a 1998 P38 Range Rover and the rear diff tends to lock up when doing tight turns. Can the limited lip be adjusted ?


yes
but it is for a professional transmission shop to do the adjustment
problems as stated start from the wrong oil being used in the differential
have a diff oil change done , flush out the diff the put the correct limited slip diff oil back in
it is not standard diff oil but special oil

1987 dokota appears to go in four wheel drive but all wheels do not pull or move when stuck in snow or mud.


Technically you do not have 4 wheel drive, you have two wheel drive (possibly three-wheel drive). When you engage 4WD you direct power to the front and rear differentials. The front differential is an open style which means that only one wheel will drive, and the rear differential is likely the same type which means that you will only have two wheels driving the vehicle (one front, one rear). If the rear differential is a "posi-trac" or "limited-slip", then both axles should lock and drive the vehicle (hence, three-wheel drive), but this style differential is not as common as it once was.

On my 2004 dodge 1500 2wd ,only one wheel in the differential actually moves. There is no limited slip or posi trac. Is this normal or a fault in the design? It eats up only drive wheel tire at twice the...


when you have a rear end without posi track or limited slip, they call this an open differential only one wheel has power at a time. The wheel that spin's the easiest is the one that spins it is cheaper for the manufactor to make but it also has the advantage of better gas mileage sense it is only sending power to one wheel at a time vs two. Tthe disadvantage is when you are stuck in the mud or snow. Remember the wheel that is easier to spin is the one that the engine is sending power to. So you can have one wheel in the mud and one wheel on dry concrete and you are stuck. Now if you are eatting up the same back tire all the time it makes me think that for some reason that the other wheel has something binding it making it harder to turn. It could be a stuck brake, a wheel bearing or in the differential itself. I would start by jacking up the back of the truck so that both tires are off the ground. Now spin each wheel, did you hear any grinding, is one wheel harder to turn than the other? If not quit doing all those big burnouts lol and everything is probably normal. If not and one wheel is harder to turn take the wheel off and the brake drum and see how hard it is to turn, how do the brakes look have they been dragging? If its not the brakes then it might be a wheel bearing and you have to take the rear cover off the diff and pull the pin remove the c clip and slide the axle out and check the bearing. Pull the axle out just enough to clear the diff and spin it does it spin freely or does it bind. If it still hard to turn then replace the wheel bearing. go to the parts store and borrow a sllid hammer it has two jaws that go in and behind the bearing and then slid the hammer until you drive out the bearing. hope this helps

Need to remove rear axle on 67 camaro can't locate c clips


some older cars do not have c lips. you need to jack up car and place on jack stands withe the whelles off the ground. remove rims/tires. remove drum brakes. remove rear end cover. you need a drain pan under it. you need the car in neutral. spin axle. look in rear end. posi or not you will see the large pin that goes through the middle of the diff. one end of the pin is held in by a bolt. reomve the bolt. spin the diff down. slide the pin out. in side the diff on each side are spider gears. with the pin out push the axle in. this will push the clip so you can pull it off of tha axle and spider gera. then pull axle out. noe an easy or claen job but very doable.

when you take the rear cover off of the differential housing you will see a whole bunch of small clutches between the spider gears and the ring gear housing, you will see that the axles go right through them. If it is not a limited slip it will not have these clutches
