Leaky transfer case or gearbox. Oil covering front diff.

Hi i own a 93 model dual cab toyota hilux. Had a look under the car and noticed the front diff was covered in oil and it is perhaps coming from the transfer case or gearbox. Which seems to be leaking. But must be slow or all oil has allready fallen out. There is no oil in the drive way underneath the car.please help :)

If the front differential is covered with oil, chances are that the leak is from the pinion seal on the diff itself or from an engine leak. check all the fluids and find what is low and clean off all the residue there so you can find the source. Since the t case is behind the diff, and the air flow is towards the rear (unless you drive backwards all day long) any leaks would tend to blow towards the back, not towards the front.Once you find the actual leak source, someone here can help advise you on how the repair can be made.

Holden Rodeo 4x4 petrol 2001 V6 what is the lubricant quantities for the diffs, gear box & transfer case. Also what weights of oil


manual transmission --- 80w-90 for the gearbox and transfer case
diff is 80-90 oep if a straight diff and different if a limited slip diff gear box is around the 2.5 ltrs as is the diff each
LiSiD oil can be used in LiSiD diffs and straight diffs but straight oil cannot be used in lisid diffs
the transfer case uses the same as the box but the quantity you will have to check in the lubrication section of the user manual
many user manuals recommend a lighter straight oil for transfer cases and boxes ( 30 straight oil) but I find that the light oil promotes bearing wear and gear problems as the oil squeezes out under load

How to change differential oil in an 89 toyota corolla FX-25, 5 door hatchback


Hi Mathew, The 89 Corolla usually has front wheel drive and a combined gearbox and differential. If the box is a manual it uses a 65 w 70 HP oil. If it is automatic it uses ATF in the gearbox which is usually also combined, but some have separate diffs and use the 65 w 70 in the diff section. Regards John

Does the clutch engage very close to the floor? If so it will probably be clutch related, but make sure there is oil in the gearbox before you do anything. Big plug on LH side of gearbox and on rear of transfer case. Both should have just a little bit of oil run out when you take plug out.

G'day mate yes you have a prob and i think it is empty 'transfer' case Toyota had a big prob with transfer case pushing oil into gearbox , result transfer case empty gearbox full. fix is when you get the transfer case off (maybe have stripped and checked ) then drill a small hole in the front of the transfercase at gearbox filler bung height and run the same oil in both if its a manual that is. hope this helps
