You don't have to remove anything out by the wheels just unbolt the axles at the diff and remove all three mounting bolts supporting with jack and unbolt front driveshaft from diff.

How do I check the differential fluid on my 2002 Chevy Silverado?

You have to get under the vehicle. On the rear differential the plug is in the front of the axles on the passenger side. On the front differential it is on the drivers side and should be a very large plug about 1" or 22mm head size. This applies for both - pull the plug and slide your pinky finger in it should be no more than 0.25" (1/4") below the bottom of the threads on the plug.

Have your universal joints checked and also the differential fluid level checked. Also the leaf spring bushings on those GM's do go bad have them checked too.

2003 h/d chevy 6.0 4x4 making noise in 4x4 only in forward motion? what is it?

these are notorious for the bearings inside the front differential to go bad. if I'm correct, you'll need to either over haul the diff or replace it.

Front axle differential on 2000 chevy silverado leaking oil out of vent .the differential is not overfilled.

Your pickup leaks just like everyone elses. what you need to do is go down to your local parts store and get an inline fuel filter (your local chevy dealer should also have these available just for this problem), preferably see thru then, where your vent runs up the inner fender cut the line about 4 inches down from the vent and install the filter. this will cure your problem

2003 chevy silverado 1500 won't won't go into 4-wheel drive. manual lever locks in and light comes on ,but no 4-wheel drive. thanks,keith

it is most likely the front end actuator that has gone up. It goes in the passenger side of the front differential. cost about 70 bucks to replace. should solve the problem since the light does come on you have power to it, just not a good actuator. email at if you need more help
