Hey guys I'm looking to change my moms front and rear diff fluid does anyone know how much diff fluid goes into the front and the rear diffs.. I'm guessing there is a fill and a drain plug is that correct? Thanks for any response 2011 jeep grAnd Cherokee
My 5.7 laredo X took 1.25 quarts in the rear and 1.1 quarts for the front they both have a fill and drain plug. Changing the fluids and refilling was very easy. I recommend that you purchase the gear lube from the dealer even though it will be more expensive.
Thanks.. The gear lube is the diff fluid that you use? because I was planning on getting that from the dealer anyway and what size socket is the fill plug? Drain plug? Appreciate the response.. I have a 05 BMW myself that I do all my own work on but I'm just learning on jeeps
A quick forum search for "diff fluid" indicates a variety of 75w-85 oils will work, Amsoil, RedLine, Mobil... The owners manual spells out the minimum requirements, and there are several that satisfy. I don't recall seeing a single page cross reference... I think because just about any modern 75w-85 diff oil will work. Pick your favorite brand. Those that have ELSDs should use the mopar fluid, however.
