There should be a plug right on the differential. You fill until fluid runs out of that hole, then replace the plug real quick. It's the same with all rear end's. Ford, Chevy, etc. The only difference is the location of the plug.

SOURCE: were do you refill rear end differential on 98

On the rear differential there will either be a metal plug or a rubber plug. The metal plug can be removed with a 3/8-inch drive ratchet. the rubber plug can be removed with a small screwdriver. Faceing the axle from the rear will see the plug to the right side on the cover plate. Remember to also check the front differential as well. Hope this will help you.

Rear End Whine Under Load


Replacing gears and/or bearings in a differental is not an easy project. You'll need a press. The positioning of the gears requires a great deal of precision. Shims are used to acheve the correct setting. Preload setting on the pinion bearings is critical. I would recommend leaving this one to the experts.

2003 dodge ram 1500 4x4,vibration rear wheels ,when taking off in a slow turn,something in the rear end ,its not the brakes,something with the pinion gear i think,how do i fix it


Check your u-joints first. If it is not the u-joint, then it is probably the yoke. Take the driveshaft off/out and on the yoke you will see a nut, make sure that it is tight. You will want to drain and refill your rear end gear oil as well.

I went to have my rear u joints done and the guy bent the pinion ...I couldn't get him to fix the problem and he refused to finish repairing the truck...I need a quick fix for leaking rear...


wow sorry about that. well there is no grease or quick fix for that, the pinion seal will have to be replaced. with the drive shaft removed you can remove the nut holding the yoke to the pinion gear (rear end) ,pop out the old seal and drive in the new seal, then reinstall the yoke and torque down the nut and reinstall the drive shaft. fluid loss while replacing the seal should be minimal but if you do lose fluid you may need to refill.

How do you get gear oil in rear end


like all rear axels, their is a drain plugg sometimes at the bottom but the top one is for refill. usually, a 3/8 socket wrench is used directly in the plug. turn counter-clockwise to unscrew it and fill with appropriate gear oil (80w90)

2004 Explorer: Rear differential cover is leaking, how do I fix i...


put flat pan under the housing remove the bolts holding the cover usually 10 or 12 (1/2 or #12 metric) bolts? allow the rear end grease to drain... then scape off the old gasket clean with brake cleaner spray install either new gasket or form one with oil resistant silicone put the cover back on , dont refill the fliud for at least 12 hours if using silicone. Also check the front driveshaft rear end yoke seal....they sometimes leak making the illusion of a rear end pan cover leak...if that is leaking you remove the shaft carefully...remove the large yoke retaining nut, replace the press in seal...be sure retaining yoke nut is properly torqued when reinstalling .
