You should see if you are still under warranty. If there is a lingering problem Ford may have service bulletins or extended coverage for this problem.

It is possible to have a tear in the rubber boots in the drivetrain or a clamp securing the boot may have loosened or rusted off. I have not seen many related problems here at Fixya.

Why does it continue to leak?


Elisa where ? are you working at, EXACTLY?
sounds like it's wheel /axle bearing, is it?
or the pinion bearing????? there are many bearings in any axle.

id bet $100 you didnt just pop in a new rear crankshaft bearing
as other poster guessed.

my guess is the rear axle seal leaked, GL5 lube
and soaked the brakes and all? or the front pinion?
the job requires, all Gear lube, be cleaning off all parts there.
after the job ends, or it will leak RESIDUAL GL5 (imagine a kitchen sponge?)
which axle , the 198RBI or the 226RBA??

this seal., must i guess?
so if this seal leaks, its because the bearing is bad, and beat the seal to deathh.
#1 cause.
when it leaks goes all over.
the rear has discs but has TopHAT, emrg. brake shoes
and those will be wrecked, (soaked in GL5 lube and leak after
and the shoes are wrecked too.) so did you clean all that and replace all that. (i can guess what you did or touched,)

Where is a diagram for grease /lube under chassis locations


under-body only.check
my guess not gear lube. right>? axles/gear boxes, (a plenty)
2wd, or 4wd?
what do you want to grease, you never said.
bearings, tie-rods, ujoints etc. only>?

are you asking for ZERKS? only?
or all places on car with grease.?
or
are you saying just grease? and only things that must not be removed for service with grease, (like wheel bearings and splines)

The free book posted over 200 times.
chapter 0, read that? lube/maintenance?
see the 4wd exceptions?
my 2010 has none.

the map includes LUBE points.
but adds gear boxes,axle gears, GL4 and GL5 (gear lube) is lube. too
but engine oil is not lube, to 1996 books.

1993.(oldest for GC) the word LUBE is wide reaching...

i love the NUT typo.
26132343-42iidcav35y5jytkvom0adnh-2-1.jpg
my guess is you meant grease only
and with no disassemlbly

Escalade gear oil


Depending on which front axle, "F" axle is GM part #12378261 75W90 Synthetic gear oil, must meet GM spec 9986115
"S" axle is 80W90 gear oil GL-5 spec. I dont know how to tell you to ID which axle you have so I would recommend using Synthetic oil for both front and rear axles.
The rear axle is same as the "F" axle lube as above.

'88 4runner shift problem


You say you added gear lube. Where did you add the gear lube, to the differential? Because if you added gear lube to your master cylinder for the clutch, I think we found your problem. It calls for brake fluid.

Ford Explorer leaking rear differential fluid


Time to drain and replace the fluid. The gear lube does not last long in these rear differentials. Use Valvoline 85-140 weight semi-synthetic. It will slow or even stop the leak and prevent future wear. Only replace the seals if the leak gets bad. Hint: the fill plug is 3/8" socket wrench, the drain is 3/4" socket wrench. Attach a short length of vinyl tubing to bottle to fill the differential.
