Your pickup leaks just like everyone elses. what you need to do is go down to your local parts store and get an inline fuel filter (your local chevy dealer should also have these available just for this problem), preferably see thru then, where your vent runs up the inner fender cut the line about 4 inches down from the vent and install the filter. this will cure your problem

Front axle vent tube leaks out oil


You are likely to get an oil 'mist' from a vent or breather tube -this is quite normal. The 'mist' cools around the breather and forms a small oily patch. on the axle casing.

Are you certain that the oil is coming from the vent tube and isn't due to a split in the metal casing or from the gasket/seal?

How much oil are you losing? The only other way you would lose oil is if excess pressure was building up inside the differential and to be honest, it's difficult to see how this would occur unless it has recently been over-filled with oil.

If there are drips of oil appearing on the ground underneath the axle/differential chances are that it's the cover seal or the pinion seal at fault. The pinion seal is where the driveshaft/propshaft attaches to the differential. The cover seal is the gasket between the metal cover where the filler plug is and the differential casing itself.

I have a rear axle seal leakage.


Only if that is where the leak is.
Would be good to determine that before dismantling.
Leaks could be from the front seal, from the differential cover, from the fill plug, or from the vent.
Some differential covers are using sealant instead of a gasket these days.
A leak indicated from the front seal ( where the drive shaft is attached) might tell you to just keep adding oil, as it could be really expensive to fix.
God bless your efforts.

What type of oil do i need for a 1995 chevy silverado transfer case also if you know what gear oil should i use for the front and rear axles


The transfer case uses two types of oil one is automatic fluid the front part of differential takes gear oil 85/120 wt. both differentials I would use synthetic oil and would run 85/120 however if the rig has been well used you might want to go with a higher weight oil oil so you don't get wheel seal leaks.

How do you change a wheel seal on a mercury mountaneer 1998 rear end


Axle Vent
NOTE: If the vent cannot be cleared, it must be installed new.
A plugged vent will cause excessive seal lip wear due to internal pressure buildup. If a leak occurs, check the vent. Make sure the vent hose is not kinked. Remove the hose from the vent nipple and clear the hose of any foreign material. While the hose is removed, pass a length of mechanics wire or a small diameter Allen wrench in and out of the vent to clean it. Connect the hose when done. The vent is located on the drivers side top of axle housing.
If you plan on doing most repairs yourself I would suggest buying a Haynes or Chilton manual for your particular vehicle. Or there are some data disks on e.bay($12-$15) For a cost of under $25, you can almost do any repair yourself with these manuals.Also there are online manuals like the site called ALLDATA where guides can be viewed for a fee. All these solutions will save you time and money, and give peace of mind over correct repairs. I can post you some procedures here also.

Installing wheels without proper metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the lug nut to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Clean the wheel hub and mounting surfaces. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

                                                            the vent cap is to keep out water and to relieve differencial pressure. you can replace this yourself if thus is the cause of the leak for under 10 bucks.

                                                            Rear end wine - 2000 Chevy K1500. Sounds like the axle bearing but not 100% sure. Never replaced bearings in the rear before - not sure what I might be getting in for.


                                                            First check level of oil in rear end housing, if low, pull drums & see if any axle seals are leaking.
