oil coming out of vent tube.

hay im new to the site i have a few questions. i have a 08 srt-8 i just puchased with 15,000 miles, i have diff oil coming out of the vent tube in the front running down the inner fender well. what causes this and how can i stop it?

i also get some strange vibration when backing out of the driveway with the wheels turned in ether direction out of the front end, as if the wheels were rubbing on something. got out to see and it does not seem to be rubbing. is this normal, it being allwheel drive?

what is the servo mounted in the passenger fender well, connected by a small rod to the upper control arm?

Re: oil coming out of vent tube.

Sounds like your front Diff was over filled for some reason, but I find it hard to over fill since the Oil starts to leak out once its full... Tha vent is a hose that comes from the front diff and then hooks on to the fron passenger side strut mount I believe.

Re: oil coming out of vent tube.

Very easy fix. I had the same issue with front diff oil all over my passenger engine compartment.

You need to order P/N 52070409AA

It is like a catch can for your front diff vent tube. Get under your rig and pull the hose out and install this about 6 inches from the breather. I promise you will not have another problem. Very easy DIY. Good luck
