There is a drain plug and a upper fill plug on the front differential, and believe it's in the passenger side. but i could be wrong on the side. The age thing but you can see both of the plug than you need to drain and re-fill.

How do I check the differential fluid on my 2002 Chevy Silverado?


You have to get under the vehicle. On the rear differential the plug is in the front of the axles on the passenger side. On the front differential it is on the drivers side and should be a very large plug about 1" or 22mm head size. This applies for both - pull the plug and slide your pinky finger in it should be no more than 0.25" (1/4") below the bottom of the threads on the plug.

Having trouble with the 4x4 on my 97 GMC suburban. When I push the button for four wheel drive the transfer case shifts and the front drive shaft turns but the front axle will not lock in. The trans went...


There is a front differential actuator on the side of the front axle housing .. select 4x4 inside the cab and check for 12 volts with a test light at the plug for the actuator. If you have power and ground when in 4x4 the actuator has failed ( common ) . If there is no power it is possible they did no plug everything back in on transfercase and left a harness unplugged or damaged. Let me know what you find and I can help further.
Good luck.

My 2002 2500HD 4x4 front axle not engaging


Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.
