2005 Dodge Ram 1500 2 w/d rear end blowing oil out front

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 2wd p/u truck. My rear end was "whining" for some time now, and my son thought that changing the rear end oil would help out. He removed all the oil from rear end, and replaced with mobil 1 (possibly synthetic?) and a Dodge Mopar additive that he said was needed. Drove truck without incident for one month, but rear end still whining. This morning, on way to church, smelled burning smell and heard loud whining noise. Got out and looked under and saw oil pouring out of rear end housing from where drive shaft connects to rear end. Had no choice but drive back home. It actually locked up a couple of times on the way, but made it back. Housing so hot I swear I thought it was going to catch fire. Am I up the proverbial creek without a paddle? Did he mess up? Is rear end cooked? Any ideas? I appreciate it in advance.

The input shaft, gears, seal, and differential are likely toast. The normal rear end lubrication is 90 weight gear lube, not Mobil1 engine oil. The cheapest repair may be a replacement rear end from a wrecking yard--not easy in any situation. The 'whine' that you originally had could be insufficient lubrication or the ring and pinion gears could have been worn or mis-aligned. Worn bearings can also cause this problem. Hope this helps!

Whining coming from washer fluid reservoir area, engine is off?


A whining noise in that area is most likely the power steering pump. Does it do it with the engine running or when the engine is off?
