No it is not possible. This is going to be Lube X's responsibility. They didn't put the plug back in. This happens more than you know. If you talk to them they have insurance that covers them in these types of situations.

Hi! First of all DODGE won't put a plug that can easily fall without human interference. So if you gonna ask me, it's gonna be the mechanic's fault. It should be secured before letting you go but sometimes this things are overlooked specially when the mechanic is in a rush. If the situation will be a differential replacement and you want to cut the cost, I strongly suggest that you get one on the junkyard to cost you less. Not bad for a deal. You take care now and have a good one. Thank you for using FixYa!

How do you remove rear axle from 1995 ford ranger 2 wheel drive need to replace oil seal


Raise the vehicle and properly support it. Remove the wheel and drum. Remove the rear diff cover, have a drain pan underneath to catch the gear oil. Place the trans in nuetral, chalk the front wheels to keep vehicle from moving if you forget to put it back into park befor you lower the vehicle. Rotat the differential until you see the bolt that holds the diff pin in place. Remove the bolt, 5/16 or 8 mm I believe. You can then remove the diff pin, do not rotate the diff with the diff pin removed! Push the axle in, you can then remove the C-clip that holds the axle to the side gear, it will usuall drop or just fall out. Pull the axle out of the rear diff and replace the seal. Put everything back together. Use black or grey RTV to reseal the diff cover making sure o clean up both surfaces as best you can. Put trans in park. Lower the vehicle. Remove the fill plug from the side of the differential and fill with gear lube until lube comes out the hole. Reinstall the plug and your good to go. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How do I change my rear end fluid or check it? And what kind of differential fluid would i use for a limited slip rear end?


To check the fluid there wil be a plug on the side of the Reese diff housing. Use w 3/8" ratchet to remove the plug. The fluid should be level with the button of the hole. To change the fluid first remove the fill/check plug as described above. You always want to make sure that plug comes out first so you know you can fill the diff after your done. Then place a drip pan under the read diff and remove all the bolts that hold the diff cover top the diff housing, roughly 10-12 bolts. Then carefully pry the pan away from the housing. Let the gear lube drain while you cean the gasket meterial from both the cover and the differential housing. You can either get a new gasket or you can use a good RTV type gasket maker. I prefer the higher end GREY products myself. Lay a pencil size bead around the differential. Reinstall the cover tightening the bolts to just barely snug. The RTV should just start to push out from behind the cover. Let it sit for about a half an hour and then do the final tightening. I am almost 100% positive that the rear diff talks regular 80/90 weight gear lube. Your local parts store will be able to conffirm the correct lube and the quantity, approximately 2-4 quarts depending on what size ring gear you have.

When I come to a stop there is a click just as the car recoials form the stop comingfrom the rear of the car. Dealer says its in the suspension, but sounds to me like in the drive train?? Any ideas? Could...


Your dealer is most likely correct, it may be a worn suspension bushing or another suspension component and the sooner you get it repaired the cheaper it will be (quite apart from any potential safety/handling issues).

When the car has stopped the drive train and diff are no longer operating, so the sound which you describe almost certainly isn't anything to do with those components.

Diff fluid on most cars these days is intended to be for life. Unless major work is needed it does not normally get drained and replaced, but it does need checking at major services anfd topping up if need be. Ensure the car is on level ground with a near empty boot (US=trunk) undo the hex plug on the rear diff casing. Pop your finger in the hole and check the fluid on your finger. If it's like used, black engine oil then something is seriously wrong and you'll need to investigate further. It should look almost like new fluid and be up to the level of the plughole threads. If not then top it up using the correct oil grade for your area of the world. Filler bottles are squeezy and have a flexible long necked spount which you can pop into the plug hole. Squeeze the bottle until the oil drips out of the hole and replace the plug using a new sealing washer. be careful to correctly tighten the plug:too tight will strip the threads and too loose will cause a leak and a worn out diff.

For specifics, buy yourself a Haynes manual for your car: it will pay for itself with the very first job which you use it for.

Refill gear oil in rear differential on 2003 ford mustang gt


The differential will have a plug in the driver's side of the housing that is removed with a 3/8" drive ratchet or square drive. Be sure you know what type of fluid is recommended for your vehicle. It will depend on whether it is a locking differential or standard.

When replacing the 80w gear lube in the front and rear axels, how do I know how much to add?


With the pickup on level ground and the fill plug removed. The fill plug is located in the center of the diff housing.(the side with out the drive shaft). Fill the diffs until the 80w is level with the bottom of the fill plug hole. You can feel for this with your finger. I recommend that you fill until oil starts to run out of fill hole. then wait 1 minute to let the oil settle. then check the level with your finger. if low add more. Check again. Put fill plug back in.

The stock toyota axles dont take much oil. give or take 2 quarts each differential. I have never measure exsactly.

-Note you can also check your manual trans and tranfer cases the same way. Thank you.
