    Isn't your Tempo a front-wheel drive setup?
    If that's the case there is not a differential in the rear axle for any 90 weight..
    I would jack up one rear wheel at a time and spin by hand to listen for bearings that may be going out..
    let me know what you find out...

Take it to an oil change place and tell them to check the differential oil. It won't cost much and trust me, it's hard to do at home without a lift.

My 1984 mustang only has 60,000 miles. When i put my car into drive I hear a loud noise coming from the engine. it has enough oil, its not the brakes, or driving belt. the car drives fine, like nothin


Not much we can do without knowing where the noise is coming from. It could be something rubbing because the engine is shifting. It could be moving around when in drive such as a weak motor mount. Or the crankshaft could be moving under load.
You may need to have a friend watch the engine from the side to see if anything is changing when you go from park to drive. You can also use a section of hose as a hearing device to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Need to change rear seals in axcles how to? 98 gmc jimmy


First i would check to see if the axle air vent was clear if its not the oil is vary heavy and expands a lot this will build up pressure inside the houseing and cause the axle seals to leak if you can clear it the problem may fix it self its 80 90 weight oil thats thick stuff. If not you need to remove the rear wheels and brake drums then you have to remove the cover from the rear carriar catch the oil. Look inside the carriar houseing you will see the ends of the axles theres a small clip on each axle called a c clip remove them you can pull them out with your fingers. Then you can slide the axles out past the brake plates pry the seals out you might as well replace the bearings when your doing but thats up to you. Lube and install the bearings then the new seals you will need new seals lube the seal lips and vary carefuly slide the axle in taking care not to damage the seal install the c clip do the other side put a new gasket on the rear carriar tighten bolts to 20 ft lbs. Refill carriar 80 90 weight oil through filler plug on the side of the houseing until it just starts to run out hole put the plug in the rear drums on and wheels

How do I grease the rear axle of my 01 chevy blazer (2wd) until I can get the leaking seal replaced?


Replace the seal forthwith. leaking grease will wreck your brakes and that is dangerous.

Typically rear ends take 90 weight oil, it goes in through a plug near the center of the rear end, fill to bottom of the hole, with rear end level. You can get a suction gun to **** some fluid and pump into the rear end.

The rear differential just started to hum,and now is making agrinding noise at low speeds.I cannot see any oil leak? how do I check the fluid level?What fluid is recommended


There will be a small (1/2 or 3/4") plug usually with a resessed 1/2" square drive about but just shy of half way up the rear pumpkin cover. Remove this plug and put your small finger in if you can't touch the fluid it is low. Usually a 90 weight gear oil but check your mnfg. specs. This will come in a gallon jug with a pump or a quart bottle with a pointed top. Fill pumpkin to hole.

Look on the back of the wheels by going under the vehicle. and tell me if you see a light oil. I am sure yours is a sealed pumkin. If not the oil in the pumkin may have leaked out

93 Grand Caravan right rear wheel/brake problem(s)


well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...
