You should use 75W-90 Gear Lube.

In warmer climates and for heavy duty usage, 75W-110 Gear Lube would be a better choice

Many forums are advocating synthetic gear lube. Your choice...

If you have a limited slip differential, be sure to consider an additive such as Amsoil Slip Lock™ Differential Additive (ADA)

2001 chevy blazer, no plug on rear axle to check fluid level.


A Chevy rear end or differential is filled through a plug. There is no provision for draining it, however, other than removing the rear cover. If it requires differential oil and the rear cover had not been removed for service, there is obviously a leak in a seal. At the same time, the fluid does not get contaminated and should not need to be changed under normal circumstances.

2006 tribeca subaru rear differential light is on


The rear differential warning lamp tells you if the rear differential fluid is too hot. In my case (others) and probably yours case too, it is because the wire connection has become dirty or corroded.

Tools: 180 to 220 grit sandpaper (or dremel with wire brush attachement), flashlight, paper towel. Optional: dielectric grease

Repair directions: slide under vehicle from the back (I didn't need to jack it up at all, you may want to or need to). The differential is the center section of the rear axle. On the top of the differential you will see a single wire connection. Pull the plastic wire connection off the spade. use the paper towel to clean any goo off the spade, then clean it using the sandpaper. Put dielectric grease on the connection (optional). Replace the wire connection. Your problem is solved!

If you have not changed or checked your differential fluids, you should do so. The rear dif uses a very common 80W-90 gear lube, but the front dif uses a rare type that will probably require you get it changed at subaru.

98 Chevy s10 pickup rear end whining. When its running it gets loud then quite then loud again. Sounds like a tornado siren. Help!!!??? Any ideas what it is. Please ASAP


Hello, You have a chance to save the parts if you are low on differential fluid. Usually, the noise is the Good-Bye for the broken part. But a dry part can sometimes get lubrication in a turn by the oil slinging down the axle shaft and reaching the wheel bearing or carrier bearing.

The pinion bearing can make noise under a load, then let off when you are coasting. You may also want to check the U-joints on the driveshaft as they can make noise too! There may be a rust track or grease track
on the undercarriage pan of your truck.

It will take a visual inspection or use of skilled hands to detect roughness in any of these assemblies. If differential fluid is added be sure to observe if it is a Posi-trac type locking differential which may use an additive.

A quick change oil place would be able to add most fluids to your truck. I hope my solution hel[s you.

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.
