Question about 1995 GMC Jimmy
On most differentials, there is a plug. It will have a square recess in the plug. Using a 3/8" ratchet and extension, place the extension in the plug and turn counter-clockwise to remove. (No socket required, just the extension.)
On most vehicles, the oil should be just below the level of the hole. I have relatively small hands, I just use my little finger to check the level of oil.
In past, I always used 90 weight gear oil to bring level of, but depending on your differential, you may need a special oil. (My 2001 Tahoe with locking differential used a synthetic oil. The dimwits at the oil change place added regular 90 weight oil, even after I told them not to, had to have dealer drain, and replace.)
