Best Answer

The rear differential fluid goes directly into the rear differential. There is normally an inset plug that has a square drive on it that accepts a 3/8" ratchet or ratchet extension. Remove this plug. If fluid comes out, you do not need to add any. If no fluid comes out, add enough of the fluid recommended by your vehicle manufacturer (normally 80/90 gear lube, but not always) where you took out the plug, until it starts to seep out the plug hole. Replace the plug and you're finished.
