The best is that oil that comes in it from the factory. The book that came with the truck or a good service station can tell.

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.

Screaching noise on slow lrft and right turns from rear differential


hmm, might be that the gear oil of your rear diff needs to either drained and refilled or just topped off. the gear oil for differentials like those use a special kind of oil which is called hypoid and this is specifically used on limited slip differentials.
