You should have an owners manual to tell you that
I would go to a dealer,walk in the service bay from the
outside & ask a tech & actually have them look it up &
prove to you what goes in there.
I don't know about the gasket issue,but you should be changing
the fluid every 5 years & I would use synthetic,once you get
factory spec on weight & any additive package if that applies

Check to see if the power steering pump is still turning. If you have a broken drive belt (serpentine belt or "fan" belt), and the pump doesn't turn, you have no power assist. If the pump is still turning, check the fluid level in the reservoir.

First remove the cap off the master cylinder. Push in the piston on one caliper with a c clamp, or pry it back between the pad and rotor with a prybar. Then remove the 2 bolts on the caliper itself. Replace pads.Go to other side, repeat sequence

SOURCE: How much and what kind do I need to change the differential fluid also what kind of antifreeze do I need for drain and refill

If you are picking the product up at a major auto parts store, they will be able to tell you. you will need to know, Make, model, engine size, Air Contd, 2wheel or 4 wheel drive. Once they have this they can tell you what the recommended products are and the capacity of each.

Hope this is of some help.

How to remove oil pan gasket from 2002 GMC Yukon Denali?

I just changed my oil pan gasket on my 2001 GMC Yukon Denali. Once all bolts are off the oil pan, the pan and off the block it has no clearance because the differential is in the way. I removed half the diffential since the housing is split in the center. You will see bolts on the differential housing, remove those. But before the diff can come out to make room for the pan to drop you have to remove the axel attached to the diff on the passenger side. Once the axel is off the diff you have room to remove half the diff. Make sure to drain the gear oil first. It take a bit off pulling and wiggling but it will come off. Once that's clear the oil pan is completely free to come out. Hope this helps.

2001 yukon rear diffential

Well, at this point, you're probably overdue for a fluid change anyway. Drain the rear differential, take the cover off, clean the surfaces, make a new gasket out of red RTV silicon (Here's how: run a bead all the way around the inner surface. Put on the differential cover, all the bolts, and then pull the cover back about a quarter of an inch. Let it dry. It is now a self-made gasket that will actually crush and hold tighter than if it is simply squashed in while wet.), refill the differential, and you should be good to go. A little oversimplified, but still, main steps!

Just wondering approx price to change the ac serpentine belt, and also to have my rear differ. fluid changed, I just don't want to get ripped off being a girl. I have a 2002 yukon, thanks, kathy

The belt should be no more than $20, Differential fliud $5-$10, Differential gasket $5, Both of these are VERY EASY fix if you know some1 that can help you or will do it for you. Mechanic or dealership will charge Double or Triple the total above, Some Mechanics will not put a part on that you bought somewhere else, But you can try may save you a little bit of money. I could fix it for $40 plus the parts, But im in N.C.

This is most common in these vechiles.And is part of your 100.000 mile tune up.If you need help replacing let me know.If you have to take to a shop it would cost around $50 plus parts. Best of luck to you and thank's for using Fix Ya

The front and rear differentials on my 2007 Yukon Denali (72,000+ miles) have synthetic lube. My dealer recommends that the lubes be changed at about $100 each. The maintenance schedule in the owner's...

not unless you travel in extremely dusty/sandy roads. Most ppl dont change their fluids for the life of their suvs. If you drove thru deep water often i would also change it but the front and rears are sealed and synthetic fluids is man made and takes an extremely long time to break down.

2001 Yukon 1500 XL 4 X 4 front differential problem

Sounds like the Common "Ploy for Money" from the Dealership. You can wait on this repair as long as 1---There is not a Pool of Fluid where you Park 2--- Everything work as Normal. It Very well Could be Leaking But, The Mechanics at the Dealership are trained to look for Buildup on ANYTHING on the Undercarriage. A Leak of anykind could cause Buildup of Fluids on the Outside So, Just keep an Eye on it and Make sure that it is not a Bad Leak or Anything is not Functioning as Normal.
