Question about 1984 Dodge Diplomat
Ok i have a 1984 dodge diplomat salon v8 318 5.2 litre. i am the second owner and i bought the car from a little old lady. it currently has 54000+ miles on it. since having the vehile for 3 months, it passed maryland inspection and oils have been changed properly. when i go over bumps or make a turn, i here a pop noise. i was told my u joint was bad and my dad pulled out my driveshaft, no universal joint problems at all. he then opened a container in the rear of my car and told me there was no gear oil in it, he filled it up, and it stopped the noise, til i left from work the next day. i kno my brakes need to be done but i do not know if this problem is related, my dad thinks so and is doing my brakes tommorow, but i tstill do not think its a brake problem, please help me!!!!
Having little or no oil in the rear end may mean you have a leaking axle oil seal. On the rear end housing there is a vent with a cap on it. If it is blocked it will build up pressure & blow oil through the seals. Using your fingers rotate it back & forth to free it up. Sometimes mud & the like will plug it up. You'll know if this is the problem if you find signs of oil in the rear brake drums. You may have to replace the axle seals. The lack of oil in the rear end more than likely is the culprit. Good luck!
