It could be something simple like a tire. Or it could be a wheel bearing or a bearing in the differential.

Noisy rear diff or bearing any advice?


Needs to be off the ground to see for sure. When it comes to differential bearings I replace all them, to include the axle bearings. Depends on the vehicle. No year make or model. the differential also needs looked at.

My car has a diff whining noise. I am going to sell the car and don't want to spend a lot of money on it, as I plan to buy a new car in six months of so.


You don't say what type of car you have and what mileage it has run so far.

Most likely the whine is from a very worn pinion gear.

Other than replacing or rebuilding the diff there is nothing you can do other than drain the old diff oil and replace it with new oil. ONLY use the manufacturer specified differential oil in the correct grade. This may quieten the noise a little but any difference will be minimal. It may help extend the life of the worn diff a little and it will get rid of any debris suspended in the old diff oil..

The diff drain plugs are often magnetic to pick up metal to prevent it being recirculated so check if there is much in the way of metal filings on the drain plug when it is removed.

Without disassembling the diff no one can tell you how long it may last but they are expensive to replace so I would be replacing the vehicle sooner rather than later if you don't want to replace the diff.

Until you sell the car, drive it gently when moving off from a stop and when accelerating to minimise stress on the diff.

If you are going to replace the diff oil yourself the car will need to be level and ensure you loosen and remove the diff oil filler plug before you remove the oil drain plug. If you drain the oil and the filler plug is stuck you will be in trouble. It will be a lot easier to just buy the correct diff oil and take the car to a reliable mechanic to drain and refill the diff for you while the car is up on a lift/hoist.

'03 F150 lariat-rear end makes a whining noise when turning left or right. sometimes feels like brakes are grabbing. I think it started after submersing truck in water.Changed oil in diff. no different.


The noise usually is the clutches in the posi unit not releasing properly when turning, I've had sucess by taking the diff.cover off and cleaning as much old fluid out as possible. Install cover and add two bottles of Ford posi additive and fill with 75/140 synthetic gear lube. It holds about 3.3 litres. Drive vehicle to a parking lot with enough room to do figure eights. At low speed make fairly tight turns in a figure eight. Do this several times, then reverse your direction and repeat. This forces new lube into the clutch packs. Drive vehicle and listen for improvement,

Whining noise when turning left seems to go away after vehicle warms up. limited quadra trac


Does the whining sound like it's coming from the power steering? This usually is an indication that the power steering fluid level is low.

Rear diff whining noise


Give the old man a pat on the back! There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Best of luck.

Too complicated to advise, to set up a diff you need to be experienced. Either get a skilled engineer to set the diff correctly, or change the full axle from another vehicle. If you dont set the diff correctly, it will whine and prematurely fail.

DIFF WINE


Put some Amsoil 75-90 synthetic gear oil in it and it will quiet it down a lot and make it last a long time.
