A larger pair of channel lock pliers would do the same if those are available to you. We have put 35k miles on since then. The left front 4x4 hub cover was noted to be missing and the hub had spiral cracks all around it. I wore gloves with a wrist gauntlet to avoid the sharp edges. Can't wait for the season to open up. I don't think the differentials will even use a quart will they? Finally got it but it was tricky.
. Thanks for the tips Stricken. In order to make the most out of the quality craftsmanship of your 2014 Titan, it is best to keep the fluids topped off with only the types the manufacturer recommends. I should have known it was going to be a disaster when I first went under the car and the setting sun was shining directly in my eye no matter what angle I tried. Diff's are up for grabs. My experience was a comedy of errors. I do have one question.
The metallic oil and piece of tooth is a different story, though. I don't know much about cars never even changed my own oil!! I think there has been numerous cases of this problem. Oil leak also spreads all over breaks leading to possible break failure. So my car just hit 30,000 about 2 weeks ago and I happened to take a pic. I probably should have trusted my instinct and used my slightly sloped driveway to my advantage and lifted the rear of the vehicle to even it out. Especially the note about getting the fill plug out before the drain plug.
As a result, fluid leaked and the brakes were damaged. Nissan is aware of this problem and refuses to acknowledge the defective design and application. I wouldn't hesitate to use any name brand gear oil like Mobil, Valvoline, Lucas, etc as I have done in mine. Easier than an oil change. Had to finally call Nissan complaint center.
There is a service bulletin at Nissan for this issue. Yanked the stock radio out, tinted the front two windows, put slightly bigger and better tires on it, got the aluminum kick plates non illuminating , and had a rear back up camera installed. I was sold a lemon Nissan don't want to deal with. Usa was notified but declined to assist customer with extensive repairs stating that although being under the 60,000 mile power train limit the vehicle was 5 months over the 5 year age limit. I think I may be about 1 oz short or.
This is the strongest cover available for your m226 rear axle. After additional driving by the dealership, the lights came on. Is it necessary for me to get back in there and put that little amount in there??????? I chose to do this is the street. We located the fill plug higher on the cover increasing your rear axle's oil capacity thus allowing your gears to run cooler. After replacing the fill plug. Same reason I stick with manu spec'd coolants and distilled water. The c200 axle only has 8 bolts hold the diff cover on.
Take care when reaching for the oil filter, as the metal edges around that access point are sharp. Tell me that, and I will be able to advise you on what to look for. Waited a week for response and finally had call from consumer affairs with no resolution. So this is a known issue. Anything like that around here? Her '08 is still under warranty and gets inspections every few months at the dealer. In other words, add fluid while parked on a level surface until it begins to run out. Not that I would ever consider doing so, but you will effectively ruin the filter so it can't be used again.
I had the luxury of being good friends with an owner of a Valvoline oil change shop and took full advantage. I measured it at just under 1in in diameter. Approx 52 ounces or until the oil over flows out of the fill hole. This took like 20 minutes. So if any one can help me please respond asap thank you so much. I don't know much about cars never even changed my own oil!! I believe you get out what you put in. I was going to replace all the drain and fill plug gaskets both front and rear, couldn't hurt right? I don't think the differentials will even use a quart will they? I would also at this point contacting a professional you might be able to get a rebuilt rear end or one from a junk yard.
She's at 37,000 now, and I seriously doubt this was ever done. However, if you can get the entire axle for about the same price, that may be just about as easy. Took truck home and was doing the same thing. I got an oil pump device that was recommended here but I think it had a hole in the apartus. We now offer you the option of which logos you want to or not want to include on your cover.
