WHO installed or changed out your differential. Was it working okay before someone "worked it?" If so, got back to the source.

Wheel bearing is the most likely cause. Prob a 1.5-2 hour labor rate job in the shop.

It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.

SOURCE: ''O/D OFF'' SIGNAL ON THE DASHBOARD

The O/D off means your overdrive is off. Have you accidently bumped it? It could be the start of a problem with electrical system. Usually a bad ground on your O/D may cause this. Intermitten problems are the hardest to track down and fix. Do you know what overdrive does? It's a gas savings device which cuts the engine's RPM's down by something like 1/3, like a 5th gear. That's why you are experiencing the jerking on the highway. Do you have an owners manual? If not a good place to look for one is at a local salvage yard, or online even. There may be something in there to explain this to you a little better than I did. I had a frien who had a simular problem. It turned out to be a bad fuse. It wasn't blown, it was broken, and it's element would jiggle around when he would hit bumps in the road. I don't know if this helped you, but it will give you place to start looking.

There is a problem in the shifting of the gear box. Probably a faulty in the over drive servo that is not shifting until the throttle position has changed.. Run fault codes and look for servo/sensor faults and next have an oil change done on the gear box. The rear end has nothing to do with gear shifting so you replaced the rear end bearings for no advantage.

II think I would try some Motorcraft XL-3 Friction Modifier. That is what Ford uses to fix the same problem in their Limited Slip differentials. You can find it online or at any parts house that carries Motorcraft.

Want to change gears in rear end for posi traction in a 98 gmc25000 is this possible?


It is possible, you just have to know what gear ratio you have in your Sierra. I had issues with my son's rear differential and did the Salvage Yard and picked one up for $250.00 with less then 45,000 miles. Remember new cars end up at Salvage Yards also.

Here are the Pro code for the rear ends to your Sierra and you can match one up at a Salvage Yard.
GQ1 -- AXLE REAR, STD RATIO
GT4 -- AXLE REAR, 3.73 RATIO
GT5 -- AXLE REAR, 4.10 RATIO
GU4 -- AXLE REAR, 3.08 RATIO
GU5 -- AXLE REAR, 3.23 RATIO
GU6 -- AXLE REAR, 3.42 RATIO
G80 -- AXLE REAR, LIMITED SLIP (POSI TRACTION)

HC4 -- AXLE REAR, 4.56 RATIO

Open Your glove box and look inside it. Should be a list of codes on the bottom.
Example: GU6 G80 According to that, you'll have a 3.42 posi

Good luck and keep me posted and call around Salvage Yards, there prices will differ from one to the next salvage yard and don't ask them for a posi rear end. The cost will you more, just search all the SUV's and look at the pro codes in the glove box. Hunt, most awd system SUV will have the G80 rear end.

Good luck and keep me posted.

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.

2006 Ford Explorer slipping when accelerated


Change the auto transmission fluid and filter. Pay attention to the smell of the fluid. If it smells burnt, there is likely burned or worn clutches. You can compare the smell of the old fluid with the new fluid if you're a newbie. it also doesn't hurt to save a sample to share with an expert if you know one. Also pay close attention in the bottom of the pan for metal filings, fragments etc. A fine layer of black silt is usually normal. If the trans is burned out, there will be evidence in the pan. NEVER rev the engine to get an auto to go into gear, and avoid letting the transmission slip at all costs. Overhaul is a major job and very expensive. I don't know why they'd change wheel bearing on a slipping auto. Or why they couldn't diagnose it for you. Hope this helps.
