Why is my service 4 wheel drive message on ?


in 05 gm decided to put sensors inside the transfer case , these monitor things like oil level in transfer case , gear placement (not asked for 4wd but in there anyway) also i do believe they extended this monitor to the front axle as well all fluids on all three places will need be ck'ed also ck to see that front axle is not "locked in" as these had autolocking hubs and sometimes they don't autounlock the monitor sees this and gives you a fault, try turning tight circles with someone watching front wheels , they will see Tire Jump/drag a bit if hub is not unlocked (2wd mode)

Just had axle oil leak, left front, had axle replaced, could this have been prevented or is it natural wear and tear?


Hi Dolores ! by replacing the axle shaft have you changed also the oil seal on the gear box or not? If not surely is the old oil seal and is leaking.

How do you remove rear axle from 1995 ford ranger 2 wheel drive need to replace oil seal


Raise the vehicle and properly support it. Remove the wheel and drum. Remove the rear diff cover, have a drain pan underneath to catch the gear oil. Place the trans in nuetral, chalk the front wheels to keep vehicle from moving if you forget to put it back into park befor you lower the vehicle. Rotat the differential until you see the bolt that holds the diff pin in place. Remove the bolt, 5/16 or 8 mm I believe. You can then remove the diff pin, do not rotate the diff with the diff pin removed! Push the axle in, you can then remove the C-clip that holds the axle to the side gear, it will usuall drop or just fall out. Pull the axle out of the rear diff and replace the seal. Put everything back together. Use black or grey RTV to reseal the diff cover making sure o clean up both surfaces as best you can. Put trans in park. Lower the vehicle. Remove the fill plug from the side of the differential and fill with gear lube until lube comes out the hole. Reinstall the plug and your good to go. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Do you have the electric shift 4wd? If so, start by checking if there is power to the actuator on the transfer case.

ok you hear a noise in the dash and a noise under the truck. there will be two noises under the truck one puts the transfer case into gear the other locks the fromt axle. raise rear axle let truck idle in 4x4 look under truck is front shaft moveing if yes the 4x4 motor on the front axle is not working remove dissasemble clean lube reinstall. if the shaft does not turn do this same procedure on the elec motor on trans case..good luck you can replace your oil pump it may help vehicle
Looking at the motor from the front, it is behind carb and to the right of the distributor. It has 3 wires on it.

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.
