the front diff is part of the gearbox and the diff/gearbox oil is the same-there is a dipstick on the offside of the box near the bellhousing.
My 98 impreza just pumps from the front washer tank to the back
There is a dip stick for the gear oil on the left side back towards the fire wall. It is hidden but you will see it.
front or rear? the front is slightly higher and rear of the drain... the back has a cover you remove to drain the fluid and a fill on the front of the diff..
Same place as you fill the front washer fluid. There is only one reservoir.
Unfortunatly I dont know the amount but I know you shouldnt put oil in your "auto transmission" you should be useing transmision fluid.
Remove the 10 bolts that secure the differential cover, pry the cover off, the fluid will drain out, clean the old gasket sealant off of the cover & housing, apply a thin bead of RTV to the diff cover & bolt it back into place, use a criss-cross pattern to tighten the bolts back up, fill the diff through the fill hole on the diff cover, will take aprox 1.5 quarts, stop filling when fluid leaks out of the fill hole, replace fill plug.
You have to pull the diff. cover and let it drain. Then replace the gasket. Put the diff cover back on then fill with gear oil. 75w-90 is recommended but 75w-140 could be used if you are towing a lot. Fill to about 5/8" below the fill plug on the top front of the diff. No you don't have to unbolt the cover. First check to see if you have a drain plug. It will be on the bottom of the differential housing. If you do it will save you money on a gasket.
It doesn't have a drain plug. You either have to pull out of the fill hole with a vaccuum devise , or take the cover of to drain.
I assume that you are referring to a manual transmission as you said oil and not fluid. On the side of the transmission, 1/2 way up, you should see a fill plug. Remove it and insert your little finger to the first joint. If you touch fluid or it runs out then it is ok. If not then fill to the edge.
there should be a drain fill plug on the front your diff. Since you have the IFS probably the easierst way to get oil into it would be to use along piece of fuel line from the top of your engine to the fill plug and just fill it from under the hood rather fan fighting with the bottle underneith the truck.
You will need to remove the plate on the housing to drain it. There's a fill plug on the front side where the drive shaft hooks to it.
Place a drain pan under the differential. Loosen the bolts, but don't take the diff cover completely off. Let the fluid drain into the drain pan. When it stops draining, take the diff cover off. Siphon out the remaining fluid from the bottom of the diff. Scrape off the remaining gasket. Place the new gasket on, with some RTV. Put the diff cover back on and tighten it. Remove the fill plug. Fill to the bottom of the fill plug. Replace the fill plug.
Im not 100% sure but I think you need a small funnel. Fill it through the dip stick tube. I have used that method on my 92 legacy 2.2 awd. I couldn't find any other way to do it. Hope that helps.
The front axle seals go bad. There is special "Dealer only" blue transfercase fluid and it is way overpriced at $14 a quart. Anyway, buy that first and get new seals then you'll need to drain diff and replace the seals, then reassemble the axle shafts into the diff and then fill with dealer only xfercase fluid.
where is fill plug located on 1994 mustang gt, rear diff
passenger side just above the cv shaft is a plug with a vent hose routed from it. it pulls straight out with little effort. after draining, replace and tighten drain plug. remove the check plug just to the drivers side of the drain plug and begin to fill with the proper fluid. a narrow stream will run out of the check plug hole when it is properly filled aprox. 3 pints (1 1/2 qt). reinstall check plug and fill cap. PS.... ****drain plug will never be a fill plug....always locate and ensure removal of fill plug before draining any fluids****
put a drain pan under the diff, unbolt the diff cover and pry it loose, oil will come out. clean out the debris from the cover, put it back, fill diff thru fill hole on cover until oil starts to come out of the hole. put cover bolt back in place. be sure to torques bolts to spec and to tighten the diff bolts in the proper order to avoid warping the cover.
Fill to the bottom of the "fill hole". When the fluid starts to drip out of the hole that you are filling in the diff, then you are full.
According to the Subaru service procedures, there is no bleeding necessary for the Legacy. Filling procedure is as follows. 1) Fill engine coolant into radiator up to filler neck position. Coolant capacity (fill up to
In the same place you fill your front one.
THere is a fill plug located approximately 2\3rd up from bottom. fill differential with Diff oil until level with bottom of the plug.
there is usually a bolt on the inspection plate of the diff and you fill up to the hole where the bolt is.
It is a rubber plug in the front cover.
the rear washer pulls from the front...fill the front end and the rear should work.
Could cause the axle seals or pinion seals to start leaking, just fill the fluid up too the fill plug on the diff and its full. Its pretty hard to over-fill it since it would spill out of the hole as you over fill it
