Just put a new rear diff in my 2014 Walker Evans. New diff running hot,120 degrees F at 30mph or more. Any ideas?

differentials run hot normally and I don't consider 120 F excessive
the oil in use should be 80-90 epw oil or if it is a limited slip diff, special limited slip oil of the same grade and only filled to the bottom of the fill plug hole
120 F is only 49 C
you have 3 sources of heat generation
1-- the preload on the pinion bearings
2-- the preload on the diff carrier bearings
3 --- the friction generated by the pinion / crown wheel teeth sliding past each other
the use of ep oil ( extreme pressure ) tends to keep the oil between the teeth and so reduces that friction

Holden Rodeo 4x4 petrol 2001 V6 what is the lubricant quantities for the diffs, gear box & transfer case. Also what weights of oil

manual transmission --- 80w-90 for the gearbox and transfer case
diff is 80-90 oep if a straight diff and different if a limited slip diff gear box is around the 2.5 ltrs as is the diff each
LiSiD oil can be used in LiSiD diffs and straight diffs but straight oil cannot be used in lisid diffs
the transfer case uses the same as the box but the quantity you will have to check in the lubrication section of the user manual
many user manuals recommend a lighter straight oil for transfer cases and boxes ( 30 straight oil) but I find that the light oil promotes bearing wear and gear problems as the oil squeezes out under load

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.

What grade of oil should I run in a HZJ79 land cruiser front and back diff?

E P 90 Gear oil. We have had problems with oil seals leaking. so don't over fill, We find 10 mm below the filler plug gives us the best results.

What grade oil is used in the defferential?

My owner\'s manual for my 1995 says API GL-5 unless you have a Limited Slip Diff. For LSD it says API GL-5 and SAE 80W-90 are approved. SAE 90 is acceptable if temps above 0F.

Why is the dealer useless?

Has the dealer even suggested the diff oil be changed?

The first item I would look at is the diff oil. Have it changed and at the same time have the diff unit checked for leaks. You must use the correct spec product as specified by Toyota and you should use the best available. The best diff oils in the grade you will require are expensive so do not skimp on the oil quality and use a cheap one.

What type of gear oil on gear box and diff on toyota 2004 hi ace commuter

If you are in a fairly hot climate like Australia or Africa a good general diff and gear oil is a 80-90 grade. You cant go wrong with Castrol. By using a fairly heavy grade like this you give better anti wear protection.

You cant be telling folks that it is gear oil on the rodeos tranny. That suggest 80 90w which will kill. Its Dexron III. You need to correct that.

there are different types of fluids go in that vehicle
the transmission takes ATF
the transfer case for the 4x4 take engine oil ( depend on where you live it take different grades )
the differential takes GL5 also depend on the temperature of your region, it will need different grades.
hope this will explain the confusion
