Some shavings can be normal... check to see how much slop you have between the ring and pinion gear. I think you can get a thicker c CLIP FROM gm

Positraction on 2002 corvette


Clutch packs in the chunk have worn out or broke your differential unfortunately needs to be rebuilt or replaced before the shavings work there way into the transmission and destroy it or worse the diff. Bearings lock up and shatter the housing.

My father pulled to much weight with his ford ranger. now gear issues


Did you check the differential?? Check for metal pieces or shavings, I had the front and back differential go on my escape, it ran about $1700 to fix a few years ago... that was the cheapest.. trans. guys usually don't touch the differentials, you will have to find a shop that has a person with knowledge and experience with that.

When I put 1996 Ford Ranger in 4 WD, it makes a big "clunk" noise to go in. Can this be due to using the truck to pull out some shrubbery using a chain?? Thanks so much., Terri


Might be the gears going bad in the differential. Pull the drain plug and drain some of the differential lube - look for metal shavings in the lube. If no shavings, I would put some differentail additive to the gearcase while you have the drain open,

I have a new transmission and brakes. also just changed oil. now i am being told i need to change fluid on diferential and metal shavings are coming off the cap. can this be possible? also they told me it...


I think they are taking you for a ride. The differentials should be check every year, but only to add oil. Yes some can die early, but there are differentials out on the road that are 40,50 years old and still running fine. I suggest you find another garage to go to, and next time some one says metal shaving, tell them to let you see and go to the vehicle and have them get some out for you. And if there were shavings, which I have seen, there would also be noise coming from the deferential, a low hum to clanking. To let you know shavings are metal slivers and not the normal wear that looks like gray mud.

I have a growling noise, almost like it is still in 4 wheel


check the front differential fluid, but also the transfer case fluid as the front diff is most likely the cause, but also check the transfer case fluid. if the front differential fluid is low with metal shavings in it or dry, you'll need a diff. if you have the skill, tools, or time, it would most likely be cheaper to rebuild it, but easier to replace whole unit. you'll be able to tell if the fluid has metal shavings in it, it will be its color, probably dark, with streaks of metallic in it. just hold a light up to it, you'll see. hope this helps!

Front Differential Noise


How low is the mileage. From my experience this happens mostly with a vehicle that the driver doesn't engage the 4x4 often or poor maintenance. There is a possibility that there is a leak in the differential and you got premature wear from running without oil in differential. But for the record these trucks have a pretty good differential. Contact me if you need more help.

There a few differnt things to look at.
First look at the univeresal joints make sure they are ok then I would pull the rear differential cover and see if there is any gears broke in it ( a little messy). If you are convienced that it is the transmission take the pan off and see if there are any metal shavings in the pan (messy as well). There is a magnet in the transmission pan that will collect the metal shavings ( note there is also a magnet in the differential for the same purpose). I do not know your skill level of mechanics but, a transmission does take a lot of specialty tools and they are not cheap so I would recommend take it to a transmission shop. If you do it yourself there is no warranty if something happens. Most reputable shops have good warranties. I hope this has helped you and good luck.
