Car has a leak in the rear end and I think I ran out of fluid..

Smelt a burnt smell from the rear and pulled over immediately so hopefully nothing is chewed up but if it is I have an excuse to go from 3.73 to 4.10 lmao

This SUCKS

Man I feel for ya. I hate having a series of car headaches.


For me it seems like the bad things come in 3 SETS of 3. You too, apparently!


Its amazing how much these kinds of events teach you about cars, money, and doing business. Plus you have some fun along the way even though it gets tough

fuel issue now can't drive more than 5 miles without limping back home - new fuel filter doesn't resolve

Was there any strange noises emanating from the rear end? Or just the smell of gear oil?
If it was just a smell, you may be ok. If it was leaking from the pinion seal, it will spray oil onto the hot exhaust pipes and the odor can be strong, but there is typically no damage except for whatever is causing the leak in the first place.

Bad way to start a morning

For those who don't know the story of my rear end..

A couple of weeks ago I found that a couple of my ring gear bolts came loose and were sitting in the bottom of the diff. But it didn't harm any of the gears, nothing got chewed up. So I lock tited new hardware in and put it back together..

Well today, I pulled the cover off and noticed a hole/crack that I didn't see last time. So it was leaking from there & from the pinion seal..

That's the hole/crack

And here's some metal shavings I got with a magnet from the pinion bearings and that's what burnt up the pinion seal Click image for larger version

Nothing wrong with 4.56's with his transmission. Just how everyone gets scarred with 4.10's and the mt-82.
Be different. Why be a follower. Make **** work.
