Generally if it's not on the rear cover, you will find it on the front of the center section (a 1/2" square plug, either male or female)

My gear oil from the rear wheel bearing is leaking how do i replace the seal? Secondly, How can I fill in the differential with gear oil cause I tried but can't see fill in or drain plugs along the...


You will need to remove the rear diff cover. There is a small bolt that secures the pin that the spider gears ride on. remove this bolt, and then remove the pin(you might call it a shaft). Remove the caliper and rotor from the side you are replacing, and push the axle in. Inside the differential, you will see what we call a c-clip on the end of the axle shaft you just pushed in. Sometimes this clip if it is in the right position, will fall out on it's own. If not, slide it off, and go pull the axle out. Now you can pry out the seal and replace it. There will be a pipe plug with a square recess on the front side of the differential. You can put a 3/8 drive ratchet in the recess and unscrew it. This is the fill plug. You fill the rear end untill it runs back out of this hole. It will be located about half-way up from the bottom of the differential housing.

Where is the fill plug on the diffirential on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo"


How to Fill a Rear Differential
You may need to add fluid to your differential due to leaks or changing seals, or it may be time to change out the gear oil completely. Either way, it's just a few steps to fill the rear differential and get your vehicle back out on the road!This article will explain how to fill a rear differential. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions and Things You'll Need:
  • 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension
  • 2 quarts gear oil (gear lube, differential fluid)
  • Side cutters
  • Oil drain pan
  • Shop rags
  • Flashlight or shop light (optional)
  • Lock tight (optional)

Filling a Rear Differential
  1. Be sure the car is raised on four jack stands and is level. It will be more difficult to fill the differential if you've only got it raised in the rear.
  2. Place an oil drain pan underneath the plug to catch any leaks or drips. Keep shop rags handy for any spills.
  3. Check your service manual for the amount of fluid your differential needs, if you're completely refilling the system. Two quarts should be enough in most cases.
  4. Remove the spouts on the gear oil containers. Peel off seals, then replace spouts. Use side cutters (or any cutting tool you've got handy) to clip off the top of each spout.
  5. Remove the differential fill plug using a 3/8 inch drive ratchet with extension. (Some models may require a hex key or screwdriver, but the 3/8 inch is the most common plug design.)
  6. Take the gear oil container and fit the spout into the fill hole. Pour the fluid inside. You can gently squeeze the bottle to speed the process. Repeat with a second bottle if necessary.
  7. Fill the differential until the fluid starts draining back out of the hole.
  8. Clean and replace fill plug. Use lock tight (thread locker) to help seal if desired. You can see my eHow article "How to Replace Rear Differential Fill Plug" (video) for more information.
  9. Take the car for a drive around the block to get the gear oil moving. When you return, check underneath for any leaks from the fill plug or differential cover.
Hope help with this.

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows


It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.

Low transmission fluid


Easy....you have to get under the car and remove the filler plug ABOVE the drain plug. You fill it till it comes out of that hole. You have what is called a closed cased transmission. Filling your transmission is very similar to filling a rear differential case.

Hope this helps!

Transmission problems. i need to get my transmission serviced. was told by my mechanic that the factory sealed the transmission. how do i get it serviced


What you have is called a "sealed" case. To service it, you have to remove a plug that sits a little bit higher than the drain plug. Knowing the transmission is full is simply filling it till no more fluid can be pumped into it from that hole. This is very similar to the differential on the rear end of trucks.
Please don't forget to rate!
