Re: Rear Axel Fluid Problem ??
This jeep was sitting on a lot for more than a year, so my first thought was to change the fluids when I noticed this happening. I wanted the oil changed anyway so while I was at the quick change oil shop I had them check all the fluids and they said the rear Diff was dirty so I had that changed and additive added as per owners manual recommendation for towing package. the jeep was still making a noise (sort of a scraping growling sound ) when making left or right turns. so I asked a friend at the Jeep
dealers, who is the service manager. he said this is caused by the transfer case locking and try changing the T case fluid which I did and he recommended the figure 8s to try and loosen or break free the drive train I tried that and it didn't help. It feels like the drive train is locked front and rear and not just the normal wobble from the front axel locking you feel when making a U-turn.
Some other issues I have noticed... it seems to take more power than it should when reversing and when coasting down a long steep hill the engine RPMs don't drop to idle speed even when the trans is shifted to neutral. the car just creeps along at idle speed, (no more than 2-3 klm) my 6 cyl ZJ will roll along at 20 klm @ idle.
I think I'll take it to a trans shop and see what they say...( I would like to get a 2 wheel drive transfer case swap anyway) but I want to be clear what the problem is first.
thanks for your help Frank good to hear from you again, Bob.
