Differential problem... HELP?
Hey fanatics,

Need help? I noticed the next morning i try using it but it started with a wierd noise like if it was dragging something. I noticed there was oil on the floor but didnt pay much attention until i drove off. It smelled bad and sounded bad i checked differential and it was empty. It had spilled everything... I got home and refilled it but again i went out a couple blocks and seemed to had spilled it.. My question is does anyone know what or where can this spill be coming from? Or is my diff no good no more?

Diff might be shot but clean off all oil on car and run on jackstands and check leak point. Could be blowing out of breather? Was diff hot? How far driven empty? Diff are pretty tough should be ok but find leak first

Ok i was changing the wishbone and when i moved the diff it look like i had some leaks from the top and also from the seal that i know off... But like you say i will try refilling and check carefully where is it leaking from...
