Just wondering, when changing the differential fluid, is it necessary to remove and replace the cover with a new gasket or is there another way?

There are drain holes for both the front and rear. No need to remove the cover at all.

Hey Max, whats up?


How about the Transfer case? I think I see two bolts like the Diffs. that are drain and fill bolts. They have white stuff on the threads, is this the way to do the trans. case?


Also, can I use the same Mobil 1 Syn. 75-90 in the front case and transfer case?

Look on the Maintenance Ref by dmaxallitech, transfer case gets ATF.

I was just about to change the fluid on the rear dif at 13,000, and had a couple questions.

Since the truck is just breaking in, is it good to take the cover off so that I get at the metal shards that might be in there?

Also, $30 a quart is pretty steep for the GM fluid, any thoughts here?

Thanks.

Hell ya $30 is rediculous and I refuse to pay those bandits at the dealer! They want $32 at my dealer-bastards



Thats why I chose to use the Mobil 1 synthetic 75-90 at $4.99/qt.
