Front pinion. So you have 4wd. Its not the end of the world. Remove drive shaft. Bolts in the middle. Then remove the pinion seal. It will definitly suck on your back. Try to find a lift.
Depending on the severity of the leak the oil level dropping in the engine in a manual there will be engine oil leaking from the bottom of the bell housing, (there is usually a hole drilled there for specifically this reason) In an auto (depending on variety of trnasmission and torque converter fitt…ed) there will be contamination of the converter oil or the transmission oil, or again engine oil leaking from the bottom of the bell/torque converter housinig Answer I had this problem with a 1985 Ford Bronco. I bought the truck with the problem which just got worse and worse. you can tell because you will see an slight oil leak under the vehicle toward the back of the engine. On my Bronco it was in the back of the engine but before the transmission.From all highway driving, under the truck I had oil on the bottom of the transmission, on the muffler, on the front of the rear axle, the rear stabilizer bar bushings were inflamed with the saturation of oil which caused them to split and last but not least, the oil would cover the rear tailgate and window of the truck. This was caused by the draft from the air as the truck was driven on the highway.I had to wash the back quite often, nevertheless, constantly add oil. It got so bad I was adding the oil from my family's oil changes just to get to work and back home.I still sold it because of the plow on the front end. ( Full Answer )
rear main seal must be replaced. also, is it leaking because the crankcase is holding pressure? your PCV is supposed to prevent that, to keep the seals from bolwing oil. if it got clogged, the rear main was the first to give, but wont be the last. once a seal blows ANY oil it is all done. Is PCV clo…gged? Are other seals leaking. Replacing seal not complex, but plenty time-consuming. The transmission is backed out or removed completely. The torque converter or clutch is disconnected from the flywheel or driveplate, and the flywheel is removed. the rear main seal is removed and new one drifted in. 3 hours in a shop. good time to replace clutch or torque converter if problems there, too. Oil stop leak is not a versatile chemical. It can do as many bad things in there as it can do good things. Most people will tell you they have never used it and gotten the result they hoped for.

626 rear seal r/r . \nremove engine or transmission to get to rear oil seal . you have to remove fly wheel to r/r rear seal .pretty heavy dutyjob.
Answer . \nThe tranny pan is located at the front right of your car. You will have to drain all the oil from the pan. You do that by jacking up the car in the front then unscrewing the rear bolts in the pan until you are able to drain all the fluid from the pan (you might have to unscrew other… bolts to make this possible). Here is where you will make a decision. To do it right or make a quick maybe time consuming mistake. You can after draining the oil and cleaning the area put some instant gasket on the area that was leaking and hope it don't leak again or you can do the job right, and repalce old gasket with a new one. It will cost less than $20.00 and is well worth the problem of doing this again some time in the near future. If you want to fix it correctly remove all of bolts from the pan, scrape the gasket peices off the pan and the block, wipe clean the inside of tranny pan and remove the magnet and clean that also (make sure you put it back in the same place you got it from, around the little bump. Get some gasket sealant or something to hold the new gasket in place while you hold the pan and put back the screws. Snug tighten them first then basically tighten with low tork. Not like you would do with lug nuts, but slightly tighter than by hand. Replace with appropriate tranny fluid (add 1 quart of lucas to make fluid more slicker, helps keep oil on metal parts)and check levels with car running. \n. \nI hope this was helpful to you. Good luck!\n. \nMintone@aol.com ( Full Answer )
How to fix axle leaks on 95 Chevrolet PU with full floating HD rear end changing seal hasn't solved?
You need to remove axel and hub assy. again. And look at where the seal rides on the axel housing itself. they make a seal repair sleeve that drives over the axel housing to fix this problem. Clean and sand housing real good before you install sleeve. Need to check VENT TUBE on rear end housing to m…ake sure its open and not stoped up. pull rubber hose off. You should be able to blow through it , but not suck thrugh it. Make sure the medal tube that the hose goes on is open too. When you add gear oil , don't fill it up to the fill hole, keep it about 1/2 inch below the fill hole. If Your sure this is a true full floating rear end then this will fix it. Be sure to use GM FACTORY SEALS ONLY ( Full Answer )

What is the preload on the pinion bearing and the backlash on the crownwheel and pinion inside the rear differential of a 1997 ford explorer 4 wheel drive?
Preload for pinion bearing . The shim between the inner bearing and the pinion is critical and ifit's lost you need special tools to set the pinion depth. replace thebearings and seal with an new crush sleeve thighten the pinion nutuntil the sleeve crushes and you can't move the pinion up and dow…n.Then very slowly tighten the pinion nut checking the rotational torque.You will need an inch pound torque wrench, when the preload is correctit should take between 20-25 inch pounds of torque to rotate thepinion. If you get it too tight you need to replace the crush sleeveand start over. Proper bearing preload and gear mesh are critical. ( Full Answer )
You really don't. There was a manufacturers defect in the 2003 and 2004 NB convertibles. Upholstery shops will tell you that the window needs to be reglued. Average cost to remove the top and reglue is about $500, but they will not guarantee the fix. Save up and buy a new top from Robbins in Califor…nia and have it installed. Total price for the top and install is around $1500. Best Rgards and Good Luck, Glenn ( Full Answer )
How do you change rear differential pinion seal on 2003 Dodge quad cab 1500 and the torque specs for pinion nut?
Answer . just got my 2004 ram done at the dealer for 83 bucks. worth the money and have them do it :)
You need to mark the position of the nut prior to removing.. a centre punch mark on the nut and shaft.. Remove nut and flange. pry out the seal and replace. install the flange and nut. Tighten the nut until the centre punch marks line up again
How do you fix a leaking rear window washer on a 1999 Ford Expedition It leaks through the rear storage compartment light and no fluid sprays out onto the rear window.?
I had the same problem with my 2000. There is a hose coupler above the headliner by the rear light and towards the passenger side. I had to pop off the plastic trim and I could reach it from there to put it back together.
look up on this subject i you mechanics book if you don't have one go and look at your local library and the mechanics book tells you the year and model of the car if this is any help to you or you can look around at machanic shops and ask their advice..
Pretty serious if it is leaking badly. Depending on different models of vehicle rear differentials, are very expensive to repair and replace. Honestly, if you are mechanically inclined you can grab yourself a gasket and your specified differential fluid at your local autoparts store. Gaskets are usu…ally $8-$20, and the fluid runs from $2.99-$4.99 per quart regular fluid. Make sure you know if your rear end has a limited slip, as special fluid is needed. ( Full Answer )

Answer . If this helps the sailsbury axle of a cortina details are. crownwheel and pinion backlash 0.004-0.008". pinion bearing preload 0.001-0.003". collapsible spacer length 0.453-0.461".
A 2001 Ford escape differential leak is usually caused by a badseal. Replace the differential seal. The new seal should stop theoil leak.
Pinion seal:. Remove the drive shaft from the yoke.. Pull the pinion yoke off the pinion shaft.. Remove the old seal and hammer on a new one. Seal is about 10 bucks.. Re-assemble. Rear cover:. Remove the cover bolts.. Put a pan under the rear end and pry the cover off.. Clean and re-silicone… the cover. Re-assemble.. WARNING!!!!! Don't let the rear end run dry, will cost you pinion bearings in a very short time. ( Full Answer )
Here's a safe way to do it: ~First mark position of drive shaft mounting to yoke. ~Second, remove shaft. ~Third, take a sharp pointed punch and hammer and put a mark on pinion nut and end of shaft inline with each other. ~Fourth, remove nut "Important" count the amount of turns you make becau…se that is your bearing pre-load. ~Fifth, Replace seal and clean yoke. Make sure you don't have a worn ridge where seal rides. ~Sixth, Put a light coat of rtv on inside spline and a light coat of grease where seal rides. ~Seventh, Replace yoke and replace nut turning the "EXACT" amount of turns to remove. Align marks being very careful you don't go past. Refill and replace shaft. It's VERY IMPORTANT to line up marks with EXACT amount of turns to keep bearing preload correct. And you don't want to go past your mark then back off because there's a crush collar in most rears, if you over tighten it, it'll crush more and wont give proper preload. ( Full Answer )
No. Fix a flat is an expanding foam that would completely block any pipes or hoses it coam into contact with. you really need a product called radweld.
The rear differential plug is located on the inside top part of the differential. Where the drive shaft connects.
Clean the power steering are real good check for where the leak is coming from and go from there. For example if a hose is leaking replace hose, if power steering pump seals are leaking replace pump, exc.
It is possible the seal is just worn out but check the driveshaft u-joints. If a u-joint is bad it could cause the driveshaft to wobble putting extra strain on the rear seal.

How to change the front and rear differential fluid in your half-ton The Front This is a really simple job to do. To make the job much easier, remove the front skid plate (5 bolts) and the bottom skid plate (4 bolts), if equipped. Once you get under the truck, you'll easily see where all the skid… plate bolts are located and how easy they are to remove. You will then have easy access to the drain plug and fill plug. The lower plug, of course, is the drain plug and the upper plug is the fill hole plug. In the picture below, you can see that they are already removed. The drain plug is magnetic, so when you remove it, it will have some fine "fuzzy" looking bits of metal on the tip. This is normal. Just clean the magnet off before you reinstall it. Metal shavings stuck to the plug are normal After all the fluid has drained from the front differential, just reinstall the drain plug, and fill the differential with SAE 80W-90 gear oil. (GM recommends part number 1052271 or equivalent) Synthetic can be used, but is not required according to the recommended fluids and lubricants in the owner's manual. Fill the differential to within Â½ inch of the bottom of the fill hole. The owner's manual describes two ways of check the fluid level. To check the fluid level when the differential is at operating temperature, check to see that the fluid level is filled to the bottom edge of the fill hole. Basically, remove the fill plug and if a little bit of fluid runs out, it's good. To check the fluid level when the differential is cold, check to see that the fluid level is Â½ inch below the fill hole. And easy way to check this, is to use an Allen wrench to find the fluid level. Use one that is a little more that Â½ inch long on the short end of the tool to dip it into the fill hole. When the fluid is around the Â½ inch mark on the Allen wrench, the fluid level is good. The easiest way to add the gear oil is to buy a hand pump that is designed to fit on top of the bottle of gear oil (in place of the cap). It allows you to pump the gear oil out of the bottle, through a tube, and into the differential. They can be found at most auto parts stores. Check with your dealer to verify the part number for the fluid, because the part numbers do change occasionally. The Rear Changing the rear differential fluid on the 1500 trucks also a pretty easy job. There are two ways you can do it though. You can just drain the fluid out and refill it, or drain the fluid out, remove the cover, clean out the inside and magnet, reinstall the cover and refill the differential. This guide covers removing the differential cover. The drain plug is located on the bottom of the differential housing, and the fill plug is located on the passenger's side of the differential. Both are 3/8's drive square plugs. If you're your just draining and refilling, these are the only two things that need to be removed. Drain the fluid from the differential. Take the cover off by removing the ten bolts securing it to the housing. The pictures below show what it looks like before and after cleaning it up. When cleaning up the cover, be sure to clean off the fine metal shavings off the magnet, which is normal. Also be sure to remove any pieces of the gasket that may have been left on the cover or differential housing. Reinstall the cover and a new gasket (GM gasket part number 26066456 or NAPA gasket part number P27857). Some people use some gasket sealant, some don't. I applied a very thin layer on both sides of the gasket to help it seal better and to make it a little easier to remove in the future. If you do use gasket sealant, don't use so much that it will squeeze out into the inside of the differential when the cover is tightened down. The easiest way to add the gear oil is to buy a hand pump that is designed to fit on top of the bottle of gear oil (in place of the cap). It allows you to pump the gear oil out of the bottle, through a tube, and into the differential. They can be found at most auto parts stores. GM recommends using synthetic SAE 75W-90 gear oil (GM part number 12378261) or equivalent meeting GM specification 9986115. The proper fluid level for the 1500 series is from 5/8 inch (15mm) to 1 5/8 inch (40mm) below the filler plug hole. (For the 2500 series, it's 0 to 3/8 (10mm) below the filler plug hole.) Here's a tip for measuring the correct amount of fluid in the rear differential. I used an Allen wrench, like in the picture below, to measure it. I found one that the short end fell within the 5/8 to 1 5/8 range and "dipped" the short end in the hole until the fluid reached the required amount. Those measurements are from the owner's manual of my '99. Other years may be different, so check your manual for the correct measurement. Also check with your dealer to verify part numbers for the fluid and gasket, because the part numbers do change occasionally. ( Full Answer )
You will likely find oil puddles, from the size of a quarter to the size of your hand on your driveway in the area that corresponds to about the back of the engine compartment where your car has been parked. However, in some cases if the leak isn't bad yet, it will only leak while the engine is ru…nning. To tell for certain, use a degreaser/solvent on the oil pan and all around it - wherever you see oil. Then, let the vehicle run for a good 15 minutes and see if you can tell more clearly where the leak is coming from. If it's dripping out of the seal and/or off the bottom of the bell housing towards the back of the oil pan, than it's very likely this is a rear main. Also, validate the oil is black and not red. Black is engine oil, red is transmission. If it's red, then you have a transmission issue and it's not the rear main. ( Full Answer )
You will want to grab a factory service manual or a Haynes manual. Haynes is available new, the factory manual may be available electronically, or via ebay or Fiat sites. The general process is straightforward and includes removing the wheels, brake calipers, brake caliper mounting brackets, rotors,… and axle shafts. Remove the nut on the front of the pinion shaft, pull the drive shaft yoke off of the front of the pinion, remove the 8 bolts the retain the rear cover, remove the four bolts that retain the two differential bearing caps, remove the caps. Note any shims used to position the differential carrier. Lift out the differential carrier to reveal the pinion shaft. The ring gear just bolts onto the differential carrier, so replacement is simple enough. The pinion likely must be pressed out from the front toward the back. New shims may be needed, so purchase these ahead of time. Also check and consider replacing the bearings, as well as the front seal and the back cover plate seal. This write up is general / typical, but you will want to follow the service manual instructions. ( Full Answer )
Only off a cliff; if your differential siezes your rear end falls off a millisecond later.
It may be your differential or your whole rear end or it could just be a worn out gasket.
Fluids in a vehicles must be maintained to keep it running well.Coolant leaks because there is a crack somewhere, a tube is torn,or the clamp is too loose.
This question is a little vague. There will be some water coming from the rear A/C unit when in use. This is normal. The rear window washer fluid lines run in the roof and will leak when used if they are worn or have come loose. I've personally had this problem with my 97. Then, of course, it could …be worn weatherstripping. You didn't mention whether you were talking about an internal leak or something you see on the ground. Hope this helps. ( Full Answer )
You should be able to get one from a scrapyard. many have parts searches they can do for you online & probably cheaper than a repair. A gear set is 200.00 & you can get a rearend for that in some places.
No, a 2003 Matrix is front wheel drive with power getting to the wheels via CV joints.
Because of the dual zone a/c-heating system, instead of using rubber ford chose to use steal or aluminum tubing from the front to the back. More than likely the tubes have made contact with metal and with normal driving conditions have rubbed a hole in the tube. maybe just a leaky connection to th…e heating core or worse a heating core with a hole in it. Plus i don't know if it is true or not but using two different kinds of antifreeze can compromise the entire cooling system (heating system too). ( Full Answer )
I don't believe there is a specific torque specification! Once you install the crush sleeve and tighten the nut to the desired preload on your pinion bearings, your torque will be what it will be.
get the new seal from your local shop or online Remove the shift linkage/shift lever, use a pick or small flat head driver to pop out the old seal, clean the shifter shaft and case opening. oil/grease the new seal and pop it in with the open side faceing the motor
NO it will not. That is BAD stuff to put in the engine oil. You need to check the PCV Valve and make sure it is working. If it is then you will need to replace the rear main seal.
Best left to a mechanic as the drive shaft has to come down and the big nut on the pinion gear that holds the drive shaft mount has to come off and then you can install the new pinion seal.
trying to replace rear pinion bearings 1993 ford aerostar, 7.5 rear differential...slinger washer on drive shaft side is stuck, cant get pinion shaft out, all differential parts have been removed...any suggestions?
Just had this done on my 2002 4wd Dakota for about $160 including a pinion repair kit installed at a NAPA repair shop. 2004 shouldn't be much different. I think the pinion repair kit was about $30, so less that if you don't need it.
it leaks because the super glue holding it in place wears off over time. best solution is to add more glue, preferably gorrilla glue. The bearing may have excess play and the old seal can't keep up with it. NEW ANSWER: All things wear out. But check these things when you replace the seal. #1 Th…e vent tube on the rear end housing may be stopped up. #2 To much gear oil will also make them leak. #3 The axel shaft may have a groove worn it it were the seal rides on on it. #4 You did not give the year of the truck and that would help us answer your question. but i do no that chevy and some after market places have a nice replacement bearing that works well and stops alot of seals from leaking. Good luck and thank you. ( Full Answer )
