Hi there, due to just purchasing this vehicle, I changed the transfer case fluid today and the rear differential fluid. I also changed the EGR due to idle problem.
The rear differential fluid was black, is this common?
Used and entire bottle of friction modifier by mopar in rear differential. Took for test drive and a whining noise began coming from the rear end. Is this common after a fluid change? Will it go away?
Never before have I heard this noise, but half way through our test drive, the steering wheel began to have a whining noise when turning, slight and large turns. Again, nothing in the steering pump area was touched, yet now I have a whining steering wheel. WTF?
I read some threads about the clockspring and the signal lever etc...but these threads sound as though the steering wheel is clicking. This is not. It is a smooth turn, just noisy.
So..any ideas on the differential or steering?
Thanks in advance, I really treasure and value this forum and everyone's insight/advice.
