Drain the rear axle oil and inspect it, if it looks normal, no metal, then refill it with the oil recommended in the owners manual, you may also need to add a "slip additive"

Growling from rear end on left or rite turns jeep gr ch


pull the drain plug and check for metal bits on the magnet. The only items working when changing direction is the side gears in the diff of the diff locking system in a limited slip diff. Failure is very rare for these parts unless there has been incorrect oil used in a limited slip diff. Jeep diffs use a "C" clip on the end of the axle inside the side gear and it is possible that one or both clips have become dislodged and and become immeshed in the gears

Rear end is whinning in 96 chevy s-10 blazrer


Most likely your differential ring gear carrier bearings are worn and the alignment of the pinion gear to the ring gear is out of tolerance. If your truck is full time 4x4 from the factory there is also a good chance that the rear differential housing is also worn where one of the carrier bearings (left side most likely) is mounted. This is a fairly difficult repair to do at home due to the close tolerances that need to be measured to make sure the two gears mesh properly. If the differential housing is damaged then the entire rear axle should be replaced.

My 99 Ford Expedition rear differential locks when I turn the steering wheel to the left or right, also as I am driving it makes a grinding noise and it locks as I am breaking and when I accelerate. Should...


This is bad, rear end locking up and grinding, i will bet the bearings are shot and so is the ring gear and pinion gear . the cost to rebuild this will be costly and you would need a tech to rebuild it . if the ring depth and pinion depth are not correct then noise will start and wear,

I thing the best bet is to locate a used rear end, and install it. it is not hard to install used differential .

When you remove the cover save tag that is on bolt to cover, you will need this when locating used rear end, also count teeth on ring gear and pinion then divide to get the ratio. there is a good website that will help you locate a used rear end in your area.

the site is http://www.car-part.com/ Hope this is helpful. good day

Key stuck in ignition of ford focus. column not locked


I had this same problem with my 2006 ZX4 Ford Focus. My focus has an automatic transmission. In order to get the stuck key out of the ignition, I discovered that there is sort of a "ring" on the gear shift that will sometimes slip down a little and cause the ignition to lock the key in place. The ring is located just benenth the plastic gear shift handle, right on the end there. If you push the ring up, you should be able to get the key out of the ignition. I found this out by accident. I know that sounds weird, but it actually works; at least it did for me. At first, I thought I hadn't put the gear in park. The ignition will not release the key if the gear isn't in park or if the steering wheel isn't in its lock position. I think most cars work on this principle; that wasn't the case here. For all of you 2006 Ford Focus owners out there having this problem, try my suggestion and I would also spray some WD-40 in the ignition hole too ( after you get the key out) . I hope this helps you folks out there. Good luck and have a nice day!:)

Why is it when i turn the rear wheels lock up like a positive traction?


i would remove rear cover plate to axle ( pig ) and check for ring and pinion gear or spider gears for broken teeth. Or are you sure it's not a posi gone bad ? i would think that you have a problem with the pinion gear and or ring gear.

1989 s10 blazer rear differential small gears worn, teeth ok.


The gear ratio will be stamped on the outside of the ring gear itself.You will need to change the ring and pinion gear. The side and spider gears should not have to be changed unless there is something wrong with them.Changing a rear end gear set takes a fair bit of knowledge and special tools.Make sure you have what you need before trying it. Good Luck.

Something is wrong with my rear end.i checked the gears and they look fine but when i lift the rear end and put it in drive only the passanger side wheel turns


it is definetly a differntial issue. to see if the gears are turning properly lift car, remove the diff cover and turn the tire by hand. both tires should turn if not its time to get new gears or differentail.

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.

Bird Rear-end Size


Hi meduck4,heres what you need brother as I cant see your diff, 3 ways to tell what you have:
#1 The first is the driver's door tag; there will be a one-letter or one-numeral axle code listed there. You can then compare it to the chart below: CODE Rear Axle Ratio Conventional Locking 8 M 2.73 Y Z 3.08 F R 3.45 5 E 3.27 6 W 3.73
#2 The second is the axle tag, attached to the lower lefthand bolt on the rear axle itself. The bottom left line will give you the gear ratio, and the type of rear end (S for limited slip non-locking, and L for locking).

#3 The 7.5" rear axle height is shorter than the width and the shape appears "oval".
The 8.8" rear axle
dimensions are equal and the shape appears "round".

This will tell you what you have my friend,good luck
