Question about 1986 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

I didn't notice I had a leak from my differential until it was low enough in oil to make it hum when I got off the gas. Am replacing the front and rear seals, will it continue to hum when I complete this?

It shouldn't continue to hum. If it does that would indicate that there was mechanical damage due to lack of fluid and the whole differential would have to be replaced.

I have noticed a clunk type noise/feel in the rear end after taking off from a stop. Tonight a really bad grinding/clunking sound both in drive and reverse, ion gear or neutral. I've been reading...


if the diff is not leaking oil there should be no reason to be low. If you hear a noise in neutral with the truck not moving, its not in the rear end. it may be the trans or transfer case.

Rear left wheel bearing is squeaking


Replacing a bearing requires pulling the axle so the old bearing can be forced off with a hydraulic ram and the new bearing installed. As with front bearings, the oil seals or O-rings must also be replaced so oil from the differential doesn't leak onto the rear brake linings. Be sure to check the oil level in the differential if the old seals have been leaking, and top off the level if low with the recommended gear oil. I provided you a link for this issue.

Differential fluid leaking from front, can I still drive it safely in two wheel drive instead of four? Its out differential fluid now.


it really should have the fluid in for safe operation just because they are not engaged doesnt mean no parts are moving inside there will be 2 large fill bolts one low to drain one high to fill the fluid should be just under the bottom of the top hole if its completly empty it will probly take 3-4 quarts to fill

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee rear end humming


check the differential fluid in the rear differential. if the fluid is low, add fluid and see if the noise is still there, if the fluid level is ok see if the fluid appears metallic, if it is metallic looking or excessively thick it would be a good idea to have the bearings checked out. i am in the process of rebuilding a front differential on a 98 jeep grand cherokee for the same problem. the bearings inside the differential on the carrier and pinion gear were worn out causing a humming noise. if the wear is excessive the gears might also need to be replaced

Noise and vibration above 50 mph


Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.

2003 differential whine/noise


The last time I had a hum coming out of the area of the differential it was an inside axle bearing going bad. In my case there were four bearings (one on each end of each axle). It was a Toyota. We changed one bearing after listening very carefully and guessed right. I don't know if Cadillac is built similar in this regard but I'm thinking it may be. It was a speed sensitive hum sound like you describe.
