Fix It Right! - Differential Service
Fix It Right! - Differential Service (S1E1)
Demonstrated on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD.
In this video, we demonstrate how to perform an oft-forgotten but important
maintenance procedure: servicing a vehicle's differentials. Most vehicle
manufacturers suggest that this process be performed on regular intervals -
usually 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first - and often after
certain events such as towing. Both removable-cover and drain-and-fill
differential styles are covered, and the instructions here also cover
transfer cases on 4WD vehicles as these are generally serviced via
Be sure to check your vehicle's owner's manual for specifics for your
vehicle, such as how often to perform this service and what fluids/oils to

About the "Fix It Right!" video series:
"Fix It Right!" is a series of how-to videos intended to give
do-it-yourselfers basic instructions on proper vehicle repair and
maintenance. All of our videos show real repairs being performed on real
vehicles by real technicians in a real auto shop. (Repairs are filmed and
shown with the permission of the vehicles' owners.) Although there may be
more than one way to perform any particular repair (and in many cases there
are lots of ways!) we try to focus on the methods that will be safest and
most expedient for DIYers with limited access to tooling and equipment.
We will also occasionally be showing repair processes that are too complex
or dangerous for DIY, or require specialized tooling, expertise, equipment,
and/or certifications. Those episodes will highlight the importance of
hiring a professional auto technician for tasks that are not DIY-friendly,
and demonstrate why such tasks are best left to professionals.

89 Cherokee Rear Main Seal Replacment
1989 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer 6cyl 4.0 4X4
Link to the Tutorial I used: http://youtu.be/f5o5sZbCEsw
When I got the jeep the previous owner said there might have been an oil
leak from the rear main seal or oil pan. I didn't notice anything but I was
doing a good part of a full engine rebuild and I know how prone these are
to failing so I figured I'd give it a whack. A lot of whacks to be precise.
For removal, you're going to want a dedicated punch, a nice hammer, and the
strength to not want to set it all on fire afterwards. I also used a pick
and slid that between the seal and the block to try and break some of the
seal loose. It seemed to work. Just keep hitting it, It moves eventually,
just depends on how long you stay at it. Take frequent breaks.
When Installing, you want to really soap up the crank area and take it real
slow with the seal. If you find that it takes a lot of force then stop and
look at where the seal meets the outer edge of the engine. Make sure you
don't skin the seal forcing it in too hard. You'll have to start over with
a new seal and that isn't fun. Once it slides in most of the way, you can
try use the punch to gently knock it in the rest of the way. The bottom
half is much easier in comparison. Rtv on the side tabs, then torque it
down to 80ft-lbs and add sealant to the chamfered edges as well. The end.
