    That helps a little, but the funny thing is, there is no plug on the plate or on the housing of the rear pig, confuses me to no end.

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.

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal

How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.
  • Removing the Transfer Case
    • 6 Label and disconnect the electrical wires and vacuum lines connected to the transfer case. Use masking tape and a marker.
    • 7 Remove the transfer case shifter rod. Using needle-nose pliers, remove the clip that connects the shifter rod to the transfer case. Slide the rod away from the transfer case.
    • 8 Position a floor jack underneath the transfer case. Raise it enough to take the weight of the transfer case off the transmission.
    • 9 Remove the bolts that connect the transfer case to the transmission using a socket or wrench.
    • 10 Slide the transfer case rearward to disengage it from the transfer case. Lower the floor jack, and remove the transfer case from the vehicle

    2001 chevy blazer, no plug on rear axle to check fluid level.

    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.

    What is the rear wheel bearing gear ratio for a 2001 Chevy Blazer 4WD - 2 door?

    I think you mean the rear end ratio. there is no gear ratio for the wheel bearing. If you look at the factory sticker on the drivers door, there will be an "axle code". write that down and then look here for the ratio.

    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.

    I was just wondering if my 2001 chevy blazer has a rear lockin differental??

    They were an option but you can find out by looking in your glove box's GM RPO Codes. It's the sicker on the inside of the glove box with numbers and letter.
    Here are some listing on the gear ratio you may have,
    U4: Rear Axle, 3.08 Ratio             U5: Rear Axle, 3.23 Ratio U6: Rear Axle, 3.42 Ratio 
    If it is a GU the G stands for the rear Locking Differential.
    Good luck and hope this helps.
