Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX front uses SAE 90 Premium Rear Axle Lubricant C2AZ-19580-F.The rear if it is a Dana takes 75w90, if it is a Ford 10.5 it takes 75w140 synthetic.
You should be able to see the tag, the Ford tag will have 10.5 on it. It may even say what fluid it takes on the tag.
Any more questions just ask, thanks Scott
its a diesel, if that helps. Ford has tried to fix the leak that both have had for a couple years but failed. I don't want to take it to the dealer, any ideas on what to use to keep it from leaking? the 1st time they used red silicone, (or whatever it is,), and the last time it came back with gray. It immediately leaked with the gray
perfect, thank you nicely!
I've just gotten around to changing the differential (or axle oil as it's listed in the owners guide). The guide calls for 5.8 pints of 80W-90 rear axle oil for the front and 8.5 pints of 75w-140 synthetic for the rear. Is this correct? Does the oil travel through the axles because the differentials don't look like they could hold that much oil. I just want to make sure so I don't blow any seals with too much oil. (sorry, I'm a girl and I am learning as I go.)
The tag has 10.5 on it . The vin# XXXXX
WHAT ABOUT THE FRONT? BOTH HAVE BEEN LEAKING. ITS KINDA SCARY SEEING ONLY ABOUT 2 CUPS OF OIL DRAIN OUT THE REAR. AND IT SMELLS BURNT BUT IT IS CLEAR,
The front holds 5.9 pints. If the fluid is clear with no metal in the fluid you should be ok. Just repair the leak and refill. I have seen rear ends come in with virtually no fluid, we fixed the leaks and they were ok, I know what you mean by scary.
again, THANK YOU for the help!
