For normal service, periodic fluid level checks are not required. When the vehicle is serviced for other reasons the exterior surfaces of the axle assembly should be inspected. If gear oil leakage is suspected inspect the fluid level. Refer to “Fluids, Lubricants, and Genuine Parts” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” for further information.

Fluid Level Check

• Front axle lubricant should be at the bottom edge of the oil fill hole when the vehicle is in a level position.

• Rear axle lubricant should be 0.5 in (11 mm) below the bottom edge of the oil fill hole when the vehicle is in a level position.

Adding Fluid

Add lubricant only at the fill hole and only to the level specified above.
