Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 GT 500,recently I have developed a noise in the rear end and I crawled under the car tonight and looked at the differential....the axel on the left side is totally dry but the right side is partially wet and has black grease on the outside.Does this have something to do with the noise and if so what could this mean in repairs?The noise is a low whine that is a lot more prevalent when you dedcelerate.Thanks for your advise.

There is a TSB to fix that. It is fluid leaking out the vent. They give you a nice little rubber bulb.

If your going to change the fluid have good look inside especially if your spewing it out the vent tube. Once you change add the friction modifier & fluid take your car out to an open lot & do a couple fiqure 8 `s to squeeze the fluid into the clutch packs. Let us know how you make out.

Groan while turning is normal. A little friction modifier will fix that. Whine while going straight is not. Mine did that and I had the bearings and pinion replaced under warranty. Get it looked at.
