How do I grease the rear axle of my 01 chevy blazer (2wd) until I can get the leaking seal replaced?

Replace the seal forthwith. leaking grease will wreck your brakes and that is dangerous.

Typically rear ends take 90 weight oil, it goes in through a plug near the center of the rear end, fill to bottom of the hole, with rear end level. You can get a suction gun to **** some fluid and pump into the rear end.

I need to grease or oil my rear axel on my 1983 silverado and don't know where to put the oil or grease... It's a automatic

It depends on which rear end is in your truck. There may be a plug about half way up the back cover on the differential, or it may be on the front passenger side of the rear end. The plug will come out using a 3/8 drive ratchet. Make sure you use a screwdriver or something to clean the hole out before you try to turn it. If you don't get it clean then the ratchet will slip and round the corners of the plug and then it isn't coming out.
Add your oil until it starts to leak out the plug hole. Then it is full and put the plug back in. You need to know if you have a limited slip differential or not. Limited slip takes special oil. Regular rear ends take 80-90 gear oil. Hope this helps.

Need to check rear end for grease

What make, model year of vehicle??
Typically, there is a rubber inspection plug on the rear axle cover. You remove it, and sometimes the gear oil will trickle out. If so, there is plenty of oil.

If not, put your pinky finger inside like a hook, and see if there is fluid on it when you take it out. If not, you need to top it off.

Most but not all axles are filled to within .25 or .5 inch of the bottom of the hole.

I'd like to grease the front and rear axles but can't locate the grease nipples.

Check the area where the fittings should be.The holes may be plugged, you will have to remove the plugs and install grease fittings.
Hope this is of some assistance.
