Like all rear axels, their is a drain plugg sometimes at the bottom but the top one is for refill. usually, a 3/8 socket wrench is used directly in the plug. turn counter-clockwise to unscrew it and fill with appropriate gear oil (80w90)

SOURCE: I am replacing the rear end in my 1995 toyota 4x4

well, you should really drain all the old oil out, since you will have it out from under the truck and easily handled anyway. Also, I like to add a little Lucas oil stabilizer to the oil too, just a little extra protection for a part that does alot of work. As far as the lubricant goes, I have found that good ol 80W90 does just fine. Let me know if this helps :)

How to put gear oil in..


The only place to put gear oil is in the "pumpkin". Otherwise called the rear-end.
To do so, I recommend driving the car backwards onto two ramps to raise the rear end up in the air, this also tilts the car forward.
Between the rear wheels, in the center of the axle, is a large metal container of gears and gear oil.
There should be a large hex-headed bolt less than half-way from the bottom to the top on the rear, facing your back bumper.
This is where the gear oil goes in, but after you take the bolt out, before you add any oil, stick your finger into the hole and try to feel the oil level.
If you can feel it, you don't need any more gear oil to be added.

Where do you check the gear oil in the rear?


The rear end gear box usually has fill plug about 1/3 of the way up the gear box housing. The gear oil is usually filled to the bottom side of the plug. In other words, if you were to try to add gear oil, you would stop when the oil starts to spill back out of the plug hole.

Where can I find the inlet to poor gear box oil in to?


Depends on the make year and model, Engine size and transmission type and if it's 4wheel drive or not. Gear oil can possiblt go in the front rear end the rear rear end, The transfer case, The manual transmission. Some units don't use gear oil. Some manual steering gear boxes use gear oil too. Most all gears boxes don't have a way to pour the oil in as they have level plugs in the side at the normal fluid level. These plugs are located on the sides and they frequently can be turned with a 3/8 in drive ratchet extension. If the oil comes out or is just inside the hole with the vehical parked leavel then it's full. Yes they also have drain plugs and they frequently have the same kind and size of plug on the bottom as on the side.

you can use the oil for the towing package in either rear end, but what they want to know is if the rear end is posi track. to find out jack up the back of the jeep put the transmission in neutral and turn one of the rear wheel if the wheel on the other side turns in the same direction that you are turning the wheel then you have posi track if the wheel on the other side turns backwards the you don't. but like i said you can use the towing oil in either rear end when in dought use the towing oil.

99 dodge ram van 3500 rear end loud nose when the veh is moving, i have checked the rear oil and it is full.


It could be bad pinion bearings, broken spider gears, etc. inside the differential. It could also be an axle bearing. Check the insides of your rear wheels to see if there is any rear-end grease coming out near the wheel end of the axle. If there is oil coming out, then you have a bad wheel bearing. Otherwise, you will have to remove the differential cover to check for metal particles in the rear end and to see if there are any broken gears.

There is a clanging noise when i put it in gear and can hear it while driving is it the rear end or universal joint


Check rear-end fluid level and play in rear pinion gear.
Check universal joints for play. If play is in pinion gear change rear end fluid and add a full bottle of LUCAS oil stabilizer, will quiet rear end noise.
