    I have been working on cars awhile and this tumps me because there is NO plug.

    You're not looking well enough or cleaning off enough grease. As ANY GM Tech will tell you, there IS a fill/check plug on the neck of the 3rd member that will allow such purposes. It's a plug that requires a 1/2" drive to remove and install. NO socket, NO allen, just a 1/2" drive ratchet end.

A Chevy rear end or differential is filled through a plug. There is no provision for draining it, however, other than removing the rear cover. If it requires differential oil and the rear cover had not been removed for service, there is obviously a leak in a seal. At the same time, the fluid does not get contaminated and should not need to be changed under normal circumstances.

SOURCE: brake light on 2001 chevy blazer LT 2wd

When my blazer did this they had to replace part of the wiring harness in the steering wheel. It took forever for them to get the parts because we live in nowhereville, but once it was in it works again and no problems. I had to take it to the actual chevy dealer because none of the other places had a clue. good luck.

You have to jack up the vehicle and go through the wheel well. There is a flap that will lift out of the way and you can get to the plugs. The center one is a pain though because the steering shaft is in the way.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy 1500 silverado- rear brakes overheating

Have someone push & release pedal while at wheel with problem. See if it takes a while or slow to release. If yes, have wrench ready on bleeder screw, and try again, if it sticks/holds, crack bleeder screw, if it releases, I'd replace hose.

If it does not make any noise, or sound like its getting any power, most likely its the switch.

SOURCE: Rear axle removal

Remove wheel, remove rear diff cover, remove small bolt that retains spider gear cross shaft in the carrier. Push axle in, remove "c" clip on end of axle and remove axle from housing. Reverse to replace. Only problem you may have is that sometimes small bolt is broken inside carrier. if broken you will need to drill a tiny hole into it and remove with tiny "easy out" or other similar device.
Do not turn carrier when shaft has been removed or spider gears will rotate and fall out!

No rear axle plug on my 2001 chevy blazer


Not all the Blazers/Jimmys have them, need to remove the diff cover to drain and clean magnet. New gasket afterwards, then fill in filler hole. I'm personally looking for a new diff cover that has a magnetic drainplug on it to save time scraping gaskets and no mess.

Adding transmission fluid


Found this on wiki answers

There is no dipstick on the Malibu transmission. To correctly check fluid level, you must locate the filler cap and the drain plug on the transmission. The filler cap is a red cap located on the drivers side of the transmission between the air filter box and exhaust crossover pipe, almost under the crossover pipe. The drain plug is located on the passengers side of the transmission, just behind where the axle connects to the transmission. It has an 11mm head and can be seen if you lay in front of the passengers front tire, look about 3 inches above the transmission pan. Once you have located these, warm the transmission to normal operating temperature, and with the car running, transmission in park, and the car sitting level, slowley remove the drain plug, have a drain pan under the plug in case any fluid comes out. There should be very little fluid coming out, if there is none coming out re-install the plug, remove the filler cap and put 1/2 quart of fluid in, now run the transmission thru all the gears and back to park. Put the drain pan under the plug and remove the plug, if it is overfull, let it drain until it stops, if it still doesn't have fluid coming out, add 1/2 quart at a time until it does, following the above procedure. Make sure you let any excess fluid drain out and re-install the plug. As noted above, make sure the car is running while checking the fluid. I know it seems complicated but it isn't as bad as it sounds. This same procedure applies to all Chevy Malibus from about 1997 until 2004 if I'm not mistaken.

Where do you pour transmission fluid in for 1998 Chevy Blazer


There's a red handled dip stick located on the rear of passenger's side of the engine, this is the place you put in the fluid and check the level. A small long necked funnel helps, be carful not to overfill it as doing so may cause a major leak from over pressurization.

Where do I add automatic transmission fluid for a 1995 Chevy S10 Blazer?


Locate the transmission dipstick tube....on a rear wheel drive vehicle it should be near the firewall, on the passenger side of the car. On a front wheel drive vehicle it will probably be near the firewall on the drivers side of the car. You'll need a funnel with a rather small end to fit inside the dipstick tube.

Your Blazer is a rear wheel drive vehicle.

Fluid level is best and most accurately checked when vehicle has been driven and is up to normal operating temperature and parked on level ground.

With the transmission in Park, and the engine idling, pull the dipstick out of the tube, wipe it with a clean rag all the way to the bottom and re-insert into the tube (making sure it it fully seated).

Then withdraw the dipstick, taking note of the fluid level on the bottom end of the stick.

Be sure to purchase fluid properly formulated for your vehicle.

Add fluid as required, only to "Full when hot" level. Add only enough fluid to bring up to the correct level (be careful to not overfill).

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.

Need to find out how to add oil or check the oil in the rear end of a 2000 GMC gimmy


Hello, there is a fill pluf on the passenger side of rear end to check the fluid level and to add fluid. here is some help on this.


  • Remove the rear axle fill plug.
  • Inspect the lubricant level. Specification
    The lubricant level should be between 0-10 mm (0-0.4 in) below the fill plug opening.
  • If the level is low, add lubricant until the level is even with the bottom edge of the fill plug opening

    Ifound where you put transmission fluid in the trans. but i can not find where to or how to check the fluid level it is and auotmatic. 2004 chevy cavalier


    There is a small plug (10mm) located in the transmission near where the passenger (right) side drive axle enters the transmission. With the engine warm and at idle, remove the plug and top of the fluid level until the fluid starts to run out the hole.
    Not quite user friendly.
    Good luck
