SOURCE: Rear diff pinion seal replacement, preload torque

just yank it up tight with a bar about 50cms long,their should be collapsable spacer between the taper bearings just tighten it like a professional without overtightening it so and shearing something .handfull of grease in the diff casing to slow/stop any oil leaks top up with ep 90 and away you go,the crownwheel to pinion setting is just a little wiggle woggle ,or you could use a dial gauge but its quicker and easier ,too tight and it whines and too much play and it clunks,nice little wiggle woggle and it will work fine .trust me

SOURCE: 2005 toyota tacoma 2.7 code p0037 replace rear 02

P0037 - O2 Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank1, Sensor2)

The Heated Oxygen Sensor (2) located rear of catalytic converter produces an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of catalytic converter. Ho2S 2 signal is less active than signal produced by front oxygen sensor. This code sets when HO2 Sensor voltage is greater than 999 mV for more than 2 minutes (time depends on model. Could be as high as 4 minutes)

Symptoms: There may be no noticeable symptoms except for MIL illumination. Possible high fuel pressure can over rich the system.

Causes: A code P0138 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
* Faulty O2 sensor
* Short to battery voltage in O2 sensor signal circuit
* High fuel pressure (not as likely)

Here are some potential solutions:
* Replace O2 sensor
* Repair short to battery voltage in o2 sensor signal circuit

If you replaced the O2 sensor, then its possible that you have some electrical problem there; reset the codes first, and if this come on again, check in this link TSB P0037 electrical diagnostic procedure.

Keep us updated.

Welcome to Fixya
There are things to look at are the rear diff mount - which goes soft and allows the diff to rock/tilt back and forward. This can be stiffened by filling the bush with silicon gunge. next is to have a good check of the rear trailing arm bushes and suspension mounting bushes. Lastly, or maybe should be first as its the easiest to check.. make sure the rear hub centre nut is torqued to the right setting. If this has loosened off, perhaps through a little wear, than it can cause a clunk when the car is on a ramp.
Thank you for using Fixya!

1984 Toyota pickup leaking fluid where the drive line connects to the differential. Bought the rear seal. What is involved in replacing it.

tearing the rear-end apart, replacing that seal, you might as well have new bearings put in as well!
Also this is a more "advanced" repair, having to use plastigauge(or equivalent) to get your clearences EXACT!!!

Rear drive shaft seal leaking

Yes, but you will need to mark the yoke position and exact number of turns to remove the nut or you will change ring and pinion gear lash setting when re-installing it. You can use a large pipe wrench to hold the yoke still while tightening, or get a special tool made for that.

Rear end

Did you pull the pin at differential just to be sure? If it's non-"C" clips, you'll need a slidehammer attached to hub, over studs & use wheel nuts to hold it on there. Get er done !

Left rear axle seal is leaking differental oil.

Support the left axle tube with a jack stand. Remove the wheel tire assembly. If you have disk brakes remove the caliper assembly. If you have drum brakes on the rear remove the brake drum. Then remove the rear cover plate from the differential. Rotate the ring gear until you find the cross shaft bolt. Remove the bolt. Then remove the shaft and roll the spider gears out. Push the axle end in from the end of the tube on the outside. Remove the "C" clip from the end of the axle. Slide the axle out of the housing and then you have access to the old seal. Pop the seal out and install the new seal. Reverse the procedure to reassemble. Be sure to fill the differential when your done.
