If the seal is leaking, it will need to be replaced, if you have a service manual, it will show you the procedure to replace the seal. DO NOT try to replace the seal without following the proper guidelines as input bearing damage can occur. After the repairs are made, be sure to to clean the vent tube/valve on the diff. to avoid pressure build up that will cause early seal failure, this vent should also be cleaned at every oil change.

Front end 4x4 noise, whurling or winding noise . from low speed all the way up to high


without hearing the noise it is difficult to diagnose as there are many possibilities.
the most likely for a whurling or winding noise is the front differential (diff).
check the diff oil level as described in the manual and top up/change as needed.
if the noise continues it may be worth getting it checked by a mechanic as there are quite a few possibilities.

1999 durango 4x4 front differrential some how blows fluid out the vent line & all over the place.


The symptoms you describe appears to be Water contamination of the Diff. casing.
Take the vehicle for a run to the Auto store, and purchase 4x 1quart bottles of either 85/140 Heavy Duty gear Oil, or 75/90 Synthetic, whichever is currently in the system.
Come home and drain the diff. and the drive hubs when the oil is HOT/ WARM, until it stops dripping. Inspect the drain plug for metal debris, and feel inside the diff, with the little finger.[ don't get it stuck]. If everything is ok, refit the plug, remove the level plug and refill, until the oil just trickles out, then refit the plug.
On the hubs, rotate the wheel until the Drain/Level plug is facing down to empty. To refill to the correct level, face the D/L plug hole upwards, fill1/2 pint of similar oil as the diff, into the fill hole, and rotate the wheel 90 degrees, if no oil runs out, add oil sparingly, and repeat the process until it does. The Fr. and Rr diffs would normally be oil changed at the same time, including the 4wd, Transfer box.
Check your User Manual for the Total amount of oil that you will require to complete the project.
This should cure your problem.

Howling noise coming from the front of my 2003 yukon denali, it only makes the noise when i let off the gas pedal


check the gear oil level in the front diff asap. Howl usually indicates a very low fluid level. If full, remove cover & inspect for metal debris and gear wear indicating a more severe problem. (if unit is low, check and repair leaks)

When replacing the 80w gear lube in the front and rear axels, how do I know how much to add?


With the pickup on level ground and the fill plug removed. The fill plug is located in the center of the diff housing.(the side with out the drive shaft). Fill the diffs until the 80w is level with the bottom of the fill plug hole. You can feel for this with your finger. I recommend that you fill until oil starts to run out of fill hole. then wait 1 minute to let the oil settle. then check the level with your finger. if low add more. Check again. Put fill plug back in.

The stock toyota axles dont take much oil. give or take 2 quarts each differential. I have never measure exsactly.

-Note you can also check your manual trans and tranfer cases the same way. Thank you.
