Good evening all. Did my third oil change today and threw in a new Mopar filter. I used AMSOIL Signature 5W-20. Then I looked high and low for the PTU drain / fill. I did not want to drop skid plates as I had lots of other projects to tackle. I could not find it so I said screw it. I bought the lifetime warranty, it is on Mopar if they decided service of components is not important.
For the rear diff, I did pull the plugs. It is odd because with the right and left plugs out, oil will run out of the left but not the right. My Mityvac tube will not go down into the right hole, but it did in the left. I was able to suck out a couple of ounces and that is all. So I burned through one of the two quarts I bought by flushing. So once I sucked out what I could from the left hole, I used my hand pump to just flood both holes. Then I let it drip so it was not overfull. The oil did not look too bad and the metal shavings were reasonable. I have 14,400 miles on the clock.
FYI, I am not sure if it was the factory's fault or the dealer's when they did my drive shaft replacement in the spring, but both holes were a little low. Not scary low, but not level with the bottom.
