Re: gears

You don't need to do the tire rotate, if you go to your glovebox and look in the bottom their might be a sticker of a bunch of codes those are your rpo codes. They will tell you if you use them with the def's from Good Luck. Victor

If it has tits or tires it will give you trouble.

Re: gears

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Check the drainplug on the rear differential to see if you can get that out... If you can, then undo the 10 bolts that hold the cover on after procuring some new differential gear lube and some RTV (for a gasket) from the parts store. You can read the numbers on the ring gear in this form 41:10 for example is 4.10 gears... Divide the first number by the second number. Or you could count the teeth on the gears although it's hard to count the pinion ones... More accurate method than the rotating thing. Plus if you haven't changed the fluid lately it's a good idea to do anyhow... Just a thought...</font>
