What are the torque specs for a rear differential cover of a 1990 Chevy 1/2 ton

I have a minor oil leak coming from the rear differential. When I went to check the ft/lbs of the bolts they were all around 20 and seem loose. I dont have a truck manual and i just bought the truck 2 weeks ago so im still learning about the truck.

SOURCE: ball joints

Alldata is usually the correct source of information tho recheck that it is showing ft lbs.
best way to find out exactly what it should be is to call your local dealer, ask for the parts guy and see if he will look up the correct torque for those bolts.

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.

2004 Explorer: Rear differential cover is leaking, how do I fix i...


put flat pan under the housing remove the bolts holding the cover usually 10 or 12 (1/2 or #12 metric) bolts? allow the rear end grease to drain... then scape off the old gasket clean with brake cleaner spray install either new gasket or form one with oil resistant silicone put the cover back on , dont refill the fliud for at least 12 hours if using silicone. Also check the front driveshaft rear end yoke seal....they sometimes leak making the illusion of a rear end pan cover leak...if that is leaking you remove the shaft carefully...remove the large yoke retaining nut, replace the press in seal...be sure retaining yoke nut is properly torqued when reinstalling .

The rear differential just started to hum,and now is making agrinding noise at low speeds.I cannot see any oil leak? how do I check the fluid level?What fluid is recommended


There will be a small (1/2 or 3/4") plug usually with a resessed 1/2" square drive about but just shy of half way up the rear pumpkin cover. Remove this plug and put your small finger in if you can't touch the fluid it is low. Usually a 90 weight gear oil but check your mnfg. specs. This will come in a gallon jug with a pump or a quart bottle with a pointed top. Fill pumpkin to hole.
