When do you change the fluid in the rear differencial. I was told by a mechanic that the rear differencial fluid was low and had metal shavings in it, and that the fluid needed to be changed and that it...


I'd say yes. The differential fluid is often overlooked by oil change technicians, even though it's something that should be topped off periodically.

It probably would cost more than that to repair it once it wears out.

I think that changing the fluid would take about an hour, and depending on the garage, and the labor rate, that they might elect to take the rear cover off of the differential, and drain it that way and replace the fluid once it was put back on. He could inspect the gears while the cover was off and tell you how bad it was.'

Do you hear any clunking or gear mesh noises from the rear when putting it in gear or running the vehicle?


Some mechanics would simply top off the fluid and wait until it wears out, which could be several thousand miles in the future.

Use gear oil for it of the recommended viscosity in the service manual.

Generally thicker than motor oil.

So, adding fluid would cost only the amount of the fluid plus some labor.
A bottle of fluid might cost $9.99 or so depending on where you get it.

You might be able to do this yourself if you crawl under there, remove the fill plug at the top, and just add gear oil. If there isn't enough room you might drive it up on some ramps and then crawl under there.

You could have a worn rear strut which will need to be replaced. Also check some very minor things such as a loose muffler. And, a major ailment could be an extremely worn axle assembly or worn rear end assembly. Also check for things such as loose spring hangers as any small insignificant seeming part that is loose can cause rackets and odd noises and could run into catastrophic failure.

Rear end noise on 2006 mitsubishi outlander


There is a race bearing on the back side of the rotor. If you haven't replaced it, I would strongly recommend it. You should change those out every time you change your rotors. Most new rotors come with new race bearings, if it did come with a new one (and it isn't shot yet), pull it out and pack it with grease. Wear latex gloves, put a pile of general purpose grease in your hand, and start stuffing the grease into the bearing until it comes out the other side.
