Steps and Tools Needed to Drain and Refill the Front Differential Fluid (to be performed after warm-up):

1-
Remove the differential skid pan/plate to access the fill/drain plugs.

2- Remove the fill and drain plugs with a 3/8" break-away bar or socket wrench. Remove fill plug first to allow air to enter gear case before draining.

3- Reinstall Drain Plug after used fluid stops draining (reseal plug with red RTV high temperature sealant).

4-Fill differential with a Coastal Pump and with 75-90W synthetic differential fluid.

5- Install Fill plug ( reseal plug with red RTV high temperature sealant) after refilling the differential with new fluid.

6- Inspect side shaft seals for signs of leakage.

Happy "Differential Fluid Changing!" <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/023.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt023' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />



I changed my 4x4 05 Titan's FRONT differential fluid over the weekend.

The 05 manual that came with my Titan has no fluid volume listings for the front or rear differentials?

I changed the fluid sitting on level ground. It took 58 ozs. sitting level.... which I calculate to be 3.625 pts. or 1.8125 qts.

To my surprise I noticed the OEM fluid looked very good, not too dark and not a single speck of metal was in it or on the magnetic drain plug....just a little "break-in silver" gear seating grease on the plug. The top fill plug is the same size and is magnetic also.

I also use a small micron mesh screen to dump/filter it thru and couldn't find a speck of metal!! <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

Amsoil gear oil containers don't have a convenient fill-spout on them so I used a Coastal Pump to do the filling.

The Coastal hand pump screws directly on the oil bottle.

Second Front Differential Fluid Change

Just performed the second front differential fluid change with 26,114 miles on batch #2.

Fluid looked good and all came out almost honey color and no metal shavings on the magnetic plug!

I'm still using the same Amsoil Synthetic oil/type. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/004.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cheers:' /> <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':cheers:' />
