Exclamation Turbine Sound/Rear Differential

Any thoughts on if the turbine sound that I am hearing when the driveshaft/rear differential is warm/hot is actually what I am hearing? Sometimes when I get on the gas it sounds like the vehicle is driving backwards and I hear some sort of turbine noise. No I'm not supercharged lol. I also took some pics from under the carriage sorry for the quality. Any idea what might be wrong or need repairing? Could it just be a leak and need a refill of fluid or the bearings redone?

My wife's old nitro did that...it sounded like a turbine whine on the highway.

Dealer said it's dry gears

Well if that is the case hopefully it shouldn't cost more than $150 to release and fill fluid.

Re: Turbine Sound/Rear Differential

In the mean time you can probably pop that rubber plug and fill it with the proper gear oil so you dont do any damage. Maybe the pinion seal is bad. It looks like its been slinging the oil all over.

I don't have to tools to do it myself. I'll take it by the shop tomorrow and see what they say.
