what do I do about the front axle heating up red hot where the differential is need help asap
it's dripping oil out of the front
differential cover going to take the 4
wheel drive drive shaft off and the
center spider gear I pray that all works
You may have bad bearings in the differential, taking out the spider gears and the front driveline should stop the overheat but your best bet is to overhaul the front differential.
alright so just disconnect the drive shaft and I'll be good.the house is supposed to go in the axle was disconnected could that be problem that led to this
Lube needs to be circulated in this front diff as it does not have hubs to disengage the axles so some of the front diff is still turning and needs lube.
Ok I let it cool down then drove it over 40 miles and it acted like nothing wrong then I touched it ans it was cold
