SOURCE: Rear end noise

Well it can be quiet a job the truck is 13yr old and all the nuts and bolts get rusted and will have to be cut off probly. The dealers go over board some times on what needs to be fixed. What i would try first is remove the rear diff cover and drain all the grease out go to napa or a parts store and buy a product/grease called lucas oil and fill the diff with this and give it a try first if all elese fails i would look around at a junk yard for a used rearend and have them put it in probly be the cheapest way .

SOURCE: were do you refill rear end differential on 98

On the rear differential there will either be a metal plug or a rubber plug. The metal plug can be removed with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet. the rubber plug can be removed with a small screwdriver. Faceing the axle from the rear will see the plug to the right side on the cover plate. Remember to also check the front differential as well. Hope this will help you.

Rear end whine on my 2002 ford f150 fx4 supercrew is it clutch pack?

Could be low on differential fluid, leaking from the wheel seal. The Differential gears could also be worn from low on fluid or ears was not lined up and have worn it self out.

Service the rear end, inspect the fluid's condition and measure the any play in the gears in the rear end replace is worn out.

You may buy some time by running 50% to 100% Lucas oil treatment in your rear differential. Good luck and hope your differential is not to badly worn.

Squeeky rear wheel bearing. How is it removed and replaced?

This is a rear wheel drive vehicle? Are you sure it's not a brake squeal?
The bearing sits in the end of the axle tube and is lubed with the differential fluid. You need to dissasemble the differential to remove the axle, to remove the bearing. You need a puller for that type of bearing.

Rear end noise when i let off the throttle

Check the U joints, there more common to go bad then the differential, unless you are low on differential fluids. You can take it to a drive line shop and have them replace the u joints and differential fluid and also have them readjust the ring and pin in the differential to give you more life out of the rear end. Good luck and keep me posted. Be glad to answer any questions you may have.

My 2001 chevy blazer wont shift gears. A machanic told me it's the rear end? What's that?

The term 'Rear End' when used with a vehicle, is a slang term for Rear Differential. Your engine turns the transmission, which in turn turns a driveshaft, finally turning the rear differential. The gears inside the differential turn axles, and your rear wheels are connected to these axles.

These two link explain the basics of a differential,

The rear differential, has Nothing to do with why your transmission won't shift. Manual or Automatic. I suggest you find a competent shop, and leave That One Alone!

Rear end noise and seizing now

Sounds like one of two things is happening
1). the spider gears are binding
2). the ring gear is binding on the pinion

Check the pinion gear bolt for tightness first, then check for excessive end play. Make sure you have the correct fluid for your rear end type (limited slip takes one type, semi-posi takes another type and even sometimes reguires an additive) Hope this helps.

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming

check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced
