    Front and rear diff oil change

    I just changed the front and rear diff oil because I just hit 150 miles (manual says so). Black bottle is how much came out of both. The clear is what was remaining from the quart.

    The front differential takes .33 qts which you fill until oil comes out the filler bolt hole.
    The final gear is .42 qts which you fill until oil comes out the filler bolt hole.
    Looking at your picture doesn't make sense from what I can tell. If you filled it properly your fine then.

    Rear takes much more than front. Seems like you could spit in the front diff and it would be full.

    Front was low. It should be at the 24 between the front and back. It looks to be at 21 now, so it was 3 ounces shy between the front and back. But they are both full now. The front wasnt bad to fill, but the backs fill hole is tiny.

    Its 3/4 (.75) quart between the front and back, so 24 ounces. Mine was about 3 ounces short between the 2.
