2001 yukon rear diffential


Well, at this point, you're probably overdue for a fluid change anyway. Drain the rear differential, take the cover off, clean the surfaces, make a new gasket out of red RTV silicon (Here's how: run a bead all the way around the inner surface. Put on the differential cover, all the bolts, and then pull the cover back about a quarter of an inch. Let it dry. It is now a self-made gasket that will actually crush and hold tighter than if it is simply squashed in while wet.), refill the differential, and you should be good to go. A little oversimplified, but still, main steps!

The cover gasket is silicone and is not designed to be serviced without removing the differential assembly.You will need to remove axles , driveshaft , and maybe the spare tire to get differential out.

Grease and differential oil inside left rear drum


Not that difficult, raise and support the rear of the truck and remove the wheels. Might as well replace both sides so you know you have new seals, remove the differential cover and drain the fluid. Once differential is opened and cleaned , remove the axle "C" clip that hold the axle in place and slide the axle out. Once the axle is out remove the wheel seal and clean around the area. This would be a good time to replace the wheel bearing too since you have access to them and there not that expensive. Install the new bearing and seal, note make sure you oiled the bearing and seal before installing it back and take care when installing the axle back in and "C: clip. Use RTV silicon gasket maker to seal the differential cover and wheels back on and lower. If your lazy like i am, you can drain the differential fluid and replace it with a 50/50 mix with gear oil and Lucas engine oil additives. That may stop the leak and get you a few more miles. You gear oil is (ford 75W-140) (Dana 80W-90)and the capacity is 2.6 liters and 3.5 liters if you have the 10.25 Ring gear. Good luck and hope this helps.

How do I change the oil in the front and rear differentials F150?


To change gear lube, you will need to remove the cover. While in there, wipe out the bottom of the case with a clean rag to remove any debris in there. Remove any gasket material remaining on the cover and housing and use a good silicone sealer on the new gasket. Re-fill on flat ground and don't put too much in (just to fill hole)

No big job Really. Just locate your Drain Plug for the Oil. Thepan is right there, Remove the Bolts around the Pan and Remove. You will lose all of your oil so, Have something there to catch it all. Clean it all around the Edges of the Block where the Pan mounts with Degreaser and Make sure that you Scrape the Old Gasket off of Both the Block and the Pan. Run a Thin Bead of Blue ATV Silicone around the Pan Edge, Lay the Gasket on top of this Silicone. Put another Thin line on top of the Gasket and Reinstall.
