The gear lube in the diff is never changed unless the diff is torn down for maintainence, but to change it you will need to pull the rear cover off, there is no drain plug.

I have a 2005 Dodge Sprinter 2500. Battery exploded when I turned the ignition on. New Battery got installed but when I turned on the radio a signal appeared CODE. What does this mean?

any time the battery is removed without a memory saver the radio gets locked-this is for security purposes-if you bought the vehicle brand new there should be a radio code card in with your owners manual-if not you will have to contact a dodge dealer to get the new radio code or to get it reset-if you have to go to dodge for the code i recommend writing it down in case it happens again

I need to change my rear differential, do I need eny special tools and is there a online shop manual. I have a floating rear end and I want to install a limited slip ,can this be done. I already perchased...

Changing the differential is not an easy job especially if you've never done one before. Guessing you are keeping your same ring/pinion.
You have to set the backlash with a dial indicator. The pinion has to be meshed with the ring gear at the proper depth. It's a pretty involved process.
See if there's a 4x4 shop near you. They may be more friendly to your ideas. Mudders swap differentials all the time.

I have a 2005 dodge sprinter. i just changed the intake house and found oil in it. is this normal? i also have PO299 reading on my obdII tool.

Normal to have oil in hoses, Not sure what that code is? Some scan tool codes don't correspond with the factory codes. Do you have a manual for the scan tool? it should tell you what it is, otherwise it doesn't mean anything

How do I determine the rear axle ratio on any used Dodge Ram 2500/3500?

Normally there is a tag on a bolt of the rear cover that tells you the ration of the differential. You can also use the Vin number to find it also unlss the differential has been changed. Other wise you will have to jack it up and turn both wheels exually t the same time and count the rotation of the deive shaft to come up with a close value for the gear ratio. Good Luck, RAC
